Cricut Design Space has made life easier for people who want to keep the cutting process simple.  Unfortunately in doing so, you may find your score lines jump off your project and land on a mat by themselves.  There is an easy fix for it.  

  1. After your file is opened in Cricut Design Space, make sure you have only the elements you want grouped together on your mat.
  2. Click on Select All
  3. In the Layers Palette click "Attach"

Older versions of Cricut Design Space did not always open up .svg files true to size.  You no longer have to worry about sizing issues in Cricut Design Space.  If you do want to resize an image, upload it to your mat and drag the image smaller  or bigger by clicking on double arrow icon in the lower- right hand corner.

Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) can open the following file types:

  • .svg
  • .scut 
  • .ai
  • .pdf
  • .png
  • .eps
  • .wpc


SCAL vs. 2 was the last version of SCAL capable of cutting files with the Cricut Expression.  If you have SCAL 3 or higher, you can prepare your files and take advantage of newer features and then still send your file to SCAL 2, to be cut with your Cricut Expression.  

To do this, simply go through the steps you normally would to prepare and alter your files for cutting in SCAL 3 or higher.  When you are finished do the following:

  1. Open Sure Cuts a Lot 2
  2. Go to File > Send To > Sure Cuts a Lot 2
  3. Your design is transferred and should be ready to cut.
