The first step in this creative journey is to find the perfect image for your Cricut project. For me, being a die-hard Denver Broncos fan, it’s only fitting that I choose their iconic logo.

Head over to the “Images” section in Cricut Design Space, locate your desired image, and save it to your computer.

Remember, if you’re using licensed images, it’s crucial to stick to personal use and avoid selling anything made with them.

Now, let’s get that image into Cricut Design Space. Click on the “Upload” button at the bottom of the screen, choose “Upload Image,” and simply drag the image file you just downloaded. A preview will appear on the left side.

Next, select the type of image you want. In my case, I opted for a simple outline of the Denver Broncos logo.

Adjust the size if needed, and focus on the background – the blue and white checkered area represents the sections that won’t be cut.

Click inside the areas you want to remove, creating a clear outline. In my case, I removed the orange from the mane, the white of the body, and the orange eye. Once satisfied, hit “Continue.”

Now you have two options: “Save as Print and Cut” or “Save as Cut Image.” Since I wanted a single-color cut, I chose the latter.

Give your project a name, add tags, and save it. This makes it easy to find later when searching through your saved images on Cricut Design Space.
