It’s time for another totally professional (not really) tutorial by yours truly! Today I’ve got another tip for creating designs in Adobe Illustrator and making them come to life with your Cricut Explore. Learn the ins and outs of scoring custom projects with your Cricut.

Illustrator tools you will be using:
Cricut Design Space tools you will be using:
(Note: you will need a Cricut® Tools Scoring Stylus for this project.)
I created this tutorial in response to a comment from a recent viewer interested in learning more about how to use the scoring tool. It took some playing around to get it to work the way I had in mind; and, like always, there is a lack of useful tutorials out there. I suppose it is assumed that we (the users) want to base all our projects out of the pre-made designs they have in Design Space. But where’s the fun in that?
I hope you found this video useful! I’m definitely going to implement score lines in a lot more of my projects now that I have a scoring stylus and know how to set up my files. If you have any suggestions for future Illustrator tutorials, be sure to let me know.
