How do I publish a project on the Cricut Community?

The Cricut Community makes it easy for you to publish your projects in one place that other Cricut users can access effortlessly. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

 

NOTE: The Cricut Community site is a new site with several improvements and changes planned for 2018. If you would like to provide feedback that will help us to create a great experience, visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProjectPrimroseBeta/

In Design Space, any canvas with uploaded images is considered a private canvas, ie. the canvas URL cannot be shared. Users can still publish projects with uploaded images for inspiration only, but the community will not be able to access the canvas via the Customize or Make It buttons.
