Summer of sport – image inspiration

6 August 2021

What a summer of sport it’s been! From the rescheduled Euro Football tournament and the delayed Olympics to Wimbledon’s eagerly awaited return after being cancelled last year. We’ve been cheering our teams on with a selection of images from Design Space to adorn our chest, our gym bag, and, for those of us who lead a more sedentary life, our flags to wave in support from the sofa!

Image sets

Did you know you can find similarly themed images, or collections of images from the same designer, in the Image Sets section of the library in Design Space?

You can find these by opening a new project. In the mobile app, click the Image icon on the bottom toolbar and then select ‘Highlighted Categories’. A drop-down menu will appear and the final option in the list is ‘Image Sets’. In the desktop app, select the Image icon from the left-hand panel. The final option in the list of categories on the far left of the screen is where you will find ‘Image Sets’.

Here you will be able to browse the latest images to have been added to Design Space. Having a Cricut Access subscription means you will be able to use and cut the images immediately. If you do not have a subscription you can simply choose your favourite image and pay as you go. There is always a wide selection of free images available too. Click here to find out how to find free images in Cricut Design Space.

We’ve found the perfect images sets for your sporty projects. Use the keyword in our titles below in the Image Sets search bar to find the image set of your choice.
