FREE Design Space File Play Hard Cricut Layout

Hello crafty friends!
Hope your weekend is going great and you are getting some crafty time in!
Today I am sharing a layout I recently created with the Cricut Design Space. My sweet friend got herself a Cricut Explore Air recently and so I decided to dust mine off so I could help her if/when she needs it!  Here is a layout I designed.

Here's a look at my completed layout. The majority of the papers came from the Paper Studio Little Boys and their Toys Paper Pad. I DO NOT have the Cricut subscription. I just can't bring myself to pay for a monthly subscription when I have a bunch of cartridges linked to choose from. I also utilize the free shapes quite a bit.

Here's a closer look at the title. All of the cuts are actually print then cuts of the images I used from the Boys Will Be Boys Cartridge.

Here's a closer look at the different icons that also came from the cartridge. Again, they are print then cut versions of the cricut images. I just printed them off on plain white cardstock.

Here is one final look at my layout. Once I designed it in the software the printing and cutting process was super easy.

FREE Cricut Design Space Files

I am sharing the links to the
Cricut Design Space files for this project. 

There are two links in the download.
1. One link is for the traditional files that cut
2. One link is for the print then cut version that I created.

As I share more Cricut projects, I will be very specific about which cartridge(s) I use and or will use the free files.
Please leave me a comment here or on my Facebook Page and let me know if you want to see more Cricut projects!

If I share an SVG related project, I will still use my most beloved Pazzles craft cutter.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your crafty time with me. Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!


  1. Melin, I would LOVE to see more of your Cricut projects. I bought one of your many files called Piles of Fun and doggone if I can find the layout on your blog. I'm having a bit of a tough time with piecing the snowmen but I'm not giving up! I just love how you can take pieces and just come up with your animals and figures. You are amazing!
