Do you find yourself constantly struggling to find enough time to create your own custom designs for your Cricut projects? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
As a crafter, it can be difficult to balance your creative passion with your busy schedule. But with a few time-saving tips, you can still create beautiful and unique designs without sacrificing too much of your precious time.
Hi, I’m Chaniece from Hypnotic Glamour Designs, and I understand the challenges of finding time for creative pursuits. In this post, I’m going to share three ways to have time for your custom designs and help you dispel some myths that may be holding you back.
By the end of this post, you’ll have a fresh perspective on the time it takes to create custom designs and be empowered with practical tips to incorporate into your busy schedule.
Let’s start with some myths crafters believe about having time to create their own custom designs.
Myth #1: It requires lots of planning and prep.
While planning and preparation are important, it doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process. By using a planner such as the Confident Cricut Crafter’s planner to brainstorm your ideas, you can focus on the essential components you need to get started and plan your projects in just minutes. This will help you stay organized and save time in the long run.
Myth #2: You need to have large blocks of time to create your own designs.
Many crafters believe that creating custom designs requires large blocks of uninterrupted time. But with frameworks such as my proprietary methods for picking your designs, fonts, and colors, you can quickly and easily select the details for your project. Use an easy-to-follow structure and save yourself a ton of time.
Myth #3: It’s faster to use premade designs.
While it may seem quicker to use premade designs, they lack the ability to be highly customizable. Instead, use a template so you can still make exactly what you want, how you want, without starting from scratch. Templates give you a head start and help you create unique designs that are tailored to your specific needs.
