Discovering all the BEST fonts and designs inside Cricut Access, with 5 vinyl projects you can make with the kids!

Here are a few projects I’ve made with my favorite Cricut supplies – Pajama Party Invites, 30-Minute Felt Banner, and Holiday Luminaries.

I got my first Cricut Explore Air 2 last fall and I am completely HOOKED on creating with this thing! I’ve been tackling projects left and right, and it has been so easy and SO FUN! One of the things I love MOST about creating with my Cricut is the library of fonts and designs that Cricut makes available for creators. This “mega-library” is called Cricut Access.


Cricut Access is a monthly subscription plan that gives you access to over 100,000 images, hundreds of fonts, and an ever-growing library of ready-to-make projects! You get deep discounts on any Cricut products you buy, making the monthly subscription service WORTH EVERY PENNY! Plans are $7.99 or $9.99 a month, and you can see all the details and benefits here.

Here are a couple of benefits Cricut is currently offering to their Cricut Access subscribers-

  • Cricut Access subscribers get free shipping on all orders through April 30th. Non-subscribers get free shipping with orders $99+ with code APRSHIP.
  • Cricut Access subscribers get a free Cricut Cutie when they purchase $100+ of materials, while supplies last, after discounts, excluding bulk. Cutie colors may vary.

Do I need Cricut Access?

While Cricut Access isn’t completely necessary, I think Cricut Access is worth the investment because the monthly subscription costs less than buying fonts and images individually, and I absolutely love the endless designs when I am creating. A Cricut Access plan could be ideal for you if you expect to craft routinely, like every month or two.

Why I LOVE Cricut Access fonts and images –

  1. The images are easy to find. Cricut Access is organized so well! I’ve always been able to find what I need when I need it.
  2. The designs spark creativity. Just scrolling through the library often inspires me from the start of a project, or it helps me decide on the direction to go with my design.
  3. The fonts are perfect. Fancy, bold, handwritten, or professional – the font library has it ALL!

Cricut Fonts

While you can definitely use any system fonts you have on your computer, Cricut fonts are built into the Cricut Design Space software and are designed specifically for Cricut machines. So when you use a Cricut font you’ll get a clean cut every time!
