1. Open Canva & click the purple “Create A Design” button in the top right corner of their site. Choose your template size (or manually enter in your own size).
TIP: Unless you are going to use the entire design in design space, the size of your template doesn’t matter, because you can easily remove the background & only your image will save!
(SVG’S are high quality images that will remain clear when made bigger or smaller so for an SVG sizing doesn’t usually matter)

2. Make your design! Have fun, be creative, & explore all their tools to make your design as amazing as possible!

3. Once you are satisfied with your design/image, click the WHITE “Share” button in the top right corner and scroll down & click “Download”.

4. Scroll through the image formats options & select SVG. Make sure “transparent background” has a check next to it, unless you want your entire image to be used!
Your screen should like the screen shown below:

5. Click the PURPLE “Download” button.

6. After you see the image was successfully downloaded to your computer, open up Design Space & click “New Project” (or open an existing project where you want the image to be used.

7. Click “Upload” (the last option across the left sidebar) as circled in the pic below:

8. Find the image you just downloaded and select it.

9. If your image looks the way you want it to, name it, and click the GREEN “Upload” button as circled in the pic below:

10. Now your image should be the first image listed under your “Upload Images” screen.

11. Select your image (there will be a green box around your image if it’s properly selected shown by the arrow below) and click the GREEN “Add to Canvas” button as circled in the image below:

Now you image should be successfully uploaded into your canvas like shown in the example below:

12. Now if you were to just go straight to the “Make It” screen from here, your image may end up looking a mess on the mat like the image shown below:

If this happens, simply go BACK to your canvas, select everything you want to be grouped together (either the whole image or done in sections) & click “ATTACH” from the edit options on the right sidebar as circled in the pic below:

13. Now your image should look how you want it to cut on the mat & it’s ready for tou to start cutting & creating!!!

This is how your “prepare” screen should look like (but with your image instead):


If you want to SAVE any image as an SVG, simply upload it to your design in CANVA & follow the same process to SAVE it as an SVG (or other popular picture formats!)

Where to get FREE SVG’S & Fonts

One of the most commonly asked questions we see in all of the Cricut Facebook groups that we are in is asking for “picture dumps” (or picture collections of images that they plan to use in design space) And although we have been able to manually “clean up” a good handful of the images that we have found on FB & google, it won’t work for many of those images.

When you download an SVG file directly from a website, it’ll also come already separated by layers of color, so after you inzip the file, it’s ready for you to cut with your Cricut!

(We will be posting a step by step tutorial on how to download these svgs, “unzip” them on your computer, and upload them into Design Space very soon, so keep an eye on the blog posts!)

If you go to the sites listed below & search for what you are looking for, chances are good you will find any image or font for free that your crafting heart desires!

Don’t forget if you are a Cricut access member, they have thousands of images and fonts included with your subscription!

So what exactly is an SVG?

SVG=Scalable Vector Graphics is an image format for two-dimensional graphics. SVG images are defined in a vector graphics format and stored in XML text files and the file name will end in .svg.

SVG’s are one of the main file format that is accepted to use within Design Space (the design program that you use with your Cricut machines). This is because SVG’s are high quality images & they maintain their high quality even when made bigger or smaller. (JPEG, PNG & other file formats will become pixelated once you change the sizing or adjust the image)

All these links below are for websites or blogs that offer free SVG’s for your Cricut or other cutting machine! There’s also tons of great resources on some of those sites like project ideas, tutorials, DIY stuff, & more!

Please note that some of these websites require you to make a (FREE) account in order to get access to their files, some will send you a “password” to get access to their free images, and some will send the freebies right to your inbox!

Also note that most of these sites do offer paid SVG images & fonts as well, but we are only including sites on this list that also offer free stuff as well! (We have personally checked each of these sites listed to confirm that each one of them have “freebies”!)

PLEASE READ: Make sure you pay attention to the licensing agreement on each product/site. Keep in mind that many of the free images found on these sites come with only a personal use license, but you can purchase a commercial license for almost every image. Just read each websites “privacy policy” for specifics!

Most common types of licenses:

Commercial use-you can use the design on a product and sell it for a profit/make money on it. Please note each companies policy when it comes to licensing because some of them offer limited amount of items made with their commercial license.

Limited commercial use-you can make a specified amount of this design to sell it. You can find specifics in the fine print when it tells you the licensing agreement.

Personal use-you can use the design ONLY for personal use. Meaning you can make items using the image or font for yourself, or for gifts to friends & family. You cannot legally make money on this design without purchasing the “commercial license” or getting specific permission from the artist/designer/website. Note: Most “personal use” designs come with the option to purchase the “commercial” license to be able to legally sell the design!
