What is digital paper? 

Essentially digital paper is a pattern or paper you can print out on a printer. You can use digital paper with Cricut Design Space, as long as you have a printer.

Watch the video which explains these 3 ways I use digital paper with Cricut Design Space.

  1. Print full page of the digital paper on your printer, to use it with your Cricut like any other paper or cardstock. This is not print and cut.
  2. Upload digital paper to patterns to use within the Cricut to add the pattern to a cut image. Then you can print and cut the image.
    Note: This method does not work in iPad/iPhone IOS Design Space or Android Design Space
  3. Upload digital paper to images, rather than patterns, for more flexibility on how the pattern will display on your image. This method uses the slice option to cut the digital paper to the shape of the cut image.
    Note: This method works in iPad/iPhone IOS Design Space but currently Android Design Space does not support print and cut
