can you make your own graphic?
I'm making cornhole boards for the family and I'm using the cut outs for stenciling. Can you design your own graphic and have the cricut cut it out? I would like to do a steelers graphic, so I have the design, just need to know if can be done and if so how to do it. I have the Cricut Mini
Thanks
Heidi

You can only design and cut using the Cricut cartridges. You can't import or design your own logo or graphic and use your Cricut to cut it out. HTHE

What Debra said is correct you can't design your own image on your computer and cut ,but you can use the craft room to design using any cart you own and have linked to the craft room.
The Steeler's logo has diamonds inside a circle , right? So if you have Plantin School Book or George you can use the craft room to design and join your images and then connect to your machine to cut it out.

Have you thought about using printable vinyl?

You could print your logos and then use the center cut function to cut out the design. You couldn't cut the shape of the design - but you could cut it out as a circle around it.

Then you could just put the vinyl on the game.

THere is some issue with the printable vinyl fading in the sun - but I think you can buy a laminate spray to help prevent fade.

Don't use Cricut Imagine printable vinyl - I don't think that is waterproof. You can get printable vinyl from a lot of online retailers.

Hi, I do not have a user manual for my cricut, so I have no idea what it is capable of! How do you warp words so that they can be arched over or under an image? Also, how can you flip letters so that a word is vertical: C
A
T


Any help would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks
Jennifer

If you go to Cricut Craft Room you can do many designs. There are several tutorials on the home page that will get you started. I think the user manuals are available online. Google them, what machine do you have?
