Basic mats font


I have another new font for you today. Again it is designed to be used with your electronic paper cutter, and I had Cricut Design Space in mind when I selected these shapes. They are all simple shapes that you might like to use as card toppers or to put behind greetings.
Don't forget in Design Space, you can enter an exact degree of rotation into the edit box:


 This makes it easy to turn these mats on their side: just type 90 into the Rotate box and hit enter.
If Design Space can't "see" your font, just log out of Design Space and log back in and it should be there.

To download the font and its instructions please click here and don't forget to print out the instructions first so you can see what you're doing.

12 inch grid SVG


I use this grid to help me lay out my mat in Cricut Design Space so I can use up my scraps of paper. With the coloured lines I can see at a glance how big to cut my scraps.
This time it is an .svg file which you only need to resize according to instructions on the .pdf file that comes with it.
You can find the two files to download if you click here
One small point: if you want to keep loading up the same grid time and again, use the "save as" dialog and rename your project to avoid writing over your nice blank grid...

Basic shapes font

This is new territory for me.
I've made a font of basic shapes to use in Cricut Design Space and thought others might like it too. Find it here.
Be sure to print out the pdf instructions and read them carefully, so you're good to go!
