Tip for using this cut file:

If you find that when you upload this file, you end up with a solid black heart instead of puzzle piece cutouts, don't worry, there is an easy fix. Simply select the black heart layer in Cricut Design Space and change the color.

Heart puzzle black shape issues troubleshooting and fix

Why is the design black? There are two reasons. 1. Cricut Design Space displays all cut lines as black. 2. There is a heart cut line around the perimeter of all those puzzle piece cut lines, so the heart shape gets filled as black and then you can't see the interior puzzle lines because they are black too. So, the easy fix is simple change the color of the shape and voila! you'll be able to see the black cut lines again.

I have since updated the file so the entire shape is now pink. But now you know why some cut shapes and lines fill as black… really, they are just hiding and they'll cut just fine.

You can also use the watercolor background printables to make pretty printed papers with your puzzle. If you'd like to create a puzzle out of a photo or other image you have, you have two options:

Upload your image or photo and set it up as a print-and-cut image. Place the puzzle on top of the printed design and then attach to your photo. Then send to the mat to cut as usual.

Or you can use a pre-printed image.

Place your printed image or photo on the mat and note where you've placed the image. Then set the puzzle cut image to the area on the mat where your photo is placed.
