  1. Thank you! Trying my first mockup, do you know of any free mockup picture sites? I can’t for the life of me take a decent picture.

  2. This is a brilliant idea. A real money saver for someone like me trying to start a business and I don’t want yo purchase blanks until I have an order. Thank you!

  3. I am starting up my business and I can’t thank you enough! I have learned so much from your posts. Before I started I thought I had to ACTUALLY make each product.

  4. Hi Christine,
    Is there a way to make a preview/ proof of your design on cricut design space to email to customer?Like when you order a custom order off etsy and they send email of what they came up with to make sure you like it. Im just starting out and sell signs on fb, but my state doesnt have how you can actually sell on fb. Local people just ask me to make them something specific but have no way to know how to show them. I didnt know if theres an app or a way. Keep in mimd i dont have microsoft office or word on my laptop

  5. This works great if everything you do is in black but what about the cut lines showing when you change the color. Cricut design space doesn’t have the option to change cut line colors like Silhouette. Is there a way around this?

  6. THANK YOU!!!!! I purchased a cricut in the hopes of making things to sell to raise money towards my medical alert service dog. I hit a major wall when I realized i had no way to make mockups. This article has been a GODSEND! Seriously, thank you!!!! Any other ideas on how to fundraise with a cricut would be much appriciated!!!

  7. Thank you so much for this insightful and helpful info. Greatly appreciated. You made it so much easier to understand the process

  8. Do you happen to have any information about how to create T-shirt Designs in regards to Font Size and Placement etc? My biggest problems with designing a T-shirt is not knowing How or What to put where. I don’t want to use someone else’s designs all the time but would prefer to know how to create my own. Thanks for any and all info
