Almost exactly one year ago, I showed everyone how to create a knockout design sign in Cricut Design Space. If you’re not familiar with this design trend, a “knockout” is where you superimpose letters or an image on another word and sometimes also add white space around those letters so it stands out better. You’ll most commonly see this design with a pair of first names knocked out of a surname to create a lovely family sign. It’s pretty and stylish. Well, in my tutorial I showed you three ways to make them—using Cricut Design Space, Inkscape, and Illustrator. But, things change, and the method to make these in Cricut Design Space is no longer working. I believe that one day this will be a built-in function in Cricut Design Space, but it’s not yet and you all have knockouts to make now! And yea, you could use Illustrator, Inkscape, Phonto, or screenshots to do it, it’s nice to not have to worry about another piece of software, right?
What I love about this knockout design project is how simple it really is! We can overcomplicate things, or we can do things the easy way… this video is all about the easy way. Yes, there ARE other ways to do this, and I list them all on my blog at jennifermaker.com/knockouts if you are interested. But using third party software isn’t easy for everyone. And the method I’m about to teach you will work on ALL versions of Cricut Desktop space, and I believe will keep working for a really long time to come!
So if you’d also like to make this pretty home tile, which took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish, you’ll need a ceramic tile which you can can get from your local home improvement store for a few bucks. You also want permanent adhesive vinyl — I used Cricut premium vinyl. You also need transfer tape to move your design onto your ceramic tile. Tools that are useful include a weeder, scraper, a pair of scissors or craft knife, a ruler, and a pencil. And you can cut this on your Cricut Explore or Maker cutting machine.
Now, the design itself is made entirely in Cricut Design Space using free fonts. It’s really easy! So let’s head on over to Cricut Design Space so I can show you how to make knockout designs, and then I’ll go through the process of creating one of these awesome knockout designs on a ceramic tile. Can you say last minute gifts for everyone?
