Q: Why Attach & Detach?

A: To secure your images or layers together. Their positions relative to each other will remain in place. Also, attaching will secure your writing and score lines onto a layer.

What does this mean?

You’re basically gluing your images, layers, text, etc., together.

    • You can use the filter feature to see fonts labeled as “Writing” fonts instead of scrolling through all of the fonts
  4. Arrange the text on the 1st layer as needed
  5. Change the type of pen you will have Cricut write with (not required, but it’s recommended to change this to the closest type of pen you will be using since the machine will need to know how much pressure to apply on the pen, e.g., a fine point pen vs. a thicker pen like a 1.0. Plus, it’ll be easier for you to see the color you want.)
  6. Select both layers (1st layer + writing text layer)
  7. Click on “Attach”
  8. Click on “Make It”
