Grouping Images

When working on a project with many levels it’s a great way to keep the project together visually.

Grouping In Cricut Design Space is a great resource when you are building a greetings card or scrapbook page. Thus allowing you to build your image in multiple colours and get a feel for how the project will look. Yet once on the matt it will be sorted into colour ready to cut.

However when you add your project to your mat, those images will uh group and separate in into matts by colour.

Ungrouping Images

If you want to make changes to a collection of grouped images simply ungroup and make changes, before regrouping. This is excellent if you only want part of an image from the library, you simply ungroup and delete anything you don’t need.

Grouping On Cricut

Grouping enables you to keep a project together, however it will cut all the images separately when you send it to cut. You can group a combination on colours in a project, as soon as you send to the cutting mat they will separate onto corresponding coloured mats.

Attaching On Cricut

The attach tool will connect the images permanently but keep the overlap lines. Thus when you send to cut in the grouped form, but with any overlap lines. You can not attach a mix of colours, as the project sends to the mat attached it will change your project to one colour. You can not attach multiple colours.

Welding On Cricut

Welding is permanent, when you weld an image it removes any internal lines and edges and will make your image on solid image. You can only undo this by clicking the back arrow.

Would I Use The Grouping Tool To Cut A Paper-cut?

No you use weld, to cut a solid paper cut the project must be welded together. However it’s a great idea to build your paper cut with the group tool. This keeps the image together, but also allows you too ungroup and make changes before clicking weld and permanently joining the image.
