Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of crafting projects can I create with CraftArtist 2 Professional?
Just about anything! Use ready-made content or your own photos, art and embellishments to craft greetings cards, scrap pages, photobooks, stationery, keepsakes, gift wrap, and party crafts. Projects made with CraftArtist 2 can be purely digital images, hybrid digital and printed craft projects, and with over 100 blank templates to choose from your crafting can go almost anywhere—but be warned, it’s addictive!
What do you mean by hybrid craft projects?
Combine traditional scrapbooking and crafting techniques with digital design by printing high quality backgrounds, embellishments or other artwork and then crafting your project by hand, perhaps also using other materials of your own. Or of course you can craft your entire project digitally in CraftArtist 2 Professional! Use our professional crafting tools, high quality artwork, lifelike embellishments, or add your own. Add the effect of realistic layering, decoupage and cutouts, then print or share the finished piece.
What kind of training comes with CraftArtist 2 Professional to get me up to speed?
In addition to the help system, tutorials, and ToolTips you’ll find pop-up Smart Hints that give advice, and commonsense tool names and icons that relate to real world crafting tasks. There’s a massive range of videos online to show the kind of things you can create, with special Make & Do projects that include artwork, step by step instructions, and a full video to follow to guide right through from start to fantastic finish.
Is it easy to base craft projects around my own photos?
Definitely! You can make your photos look gorgeous with beautifully designed and realistic photo frames that suit many crafting themes. Personalise greeting cards and other designs, or craft from scratch to suit the photo subject! You can also edit photos, applying corrections, artistic effects and washes using a built in PhotoLab so there’s no need to use multiple programs to complete your project.
What free design and crafting content do I get as a CraftArtist 2 Professional user?
CraftArtist 2 Professional uses Digikits—collections of very high quality design elements and embellishments in themed packs. The free Daydream Digikit is installed with CraftArtist 2 Professional, plus there are dozens of fully loaded and totally free Digikits you can download from Each Digikit contains items like full page templates, backgrounds, photo frames, badges, designer lettering, textures and materials, brushes and stencils, plus special on-theme items. All the content is photo-quality at 300dpi and ready to drag and drop right into your project. All our Digikits are also categorised and fully searchable so you can find what you want anytime.
Can I use Digikits that were originally designed for or using your earlier software, Digital Scrapbook Artist or Craft Artist 1?
Yes! When you install CraftArtist 2 Professional, all your existing Digikits will be available to you automatically. This includes any you have made yourself in Digital Scrapbook Artist. Even after you uninstall your older software all Digikits will still be available in CraftArtist 2 Professional. You can also open old Digital Scrapbook Artist projects, brushes, stencils and other design content in CraftArtist 2 Professional.
Can I make my own Digikits and use my own embellishments?
Yes! You can import graphics from virtually anywhere and use our Digikit Creator to package up your craft items and keep them organised.
CraftArtist 2 Professional sounds powerful, do I need a fast processor and lots of RAM to use it?
No, if your computer already runs Windows you’ll be able to run CraftArtist 2 Professional just fine. All you’ll really need is some hard disk space for the software, for your artwork, and for each Digikit you install.
How can I print or share my CraftArtist 2 Professional craft projects?
You can print your craft projects yourself, send them to your cutter, email them directly from CraftArtist 2 Professional, or save as a high quality PDF for sharing or printing elsewhere. You can also save your project in a variety of popular formats for creating photobooks or publishing on other sites, or easily upload it straight to our friendly crafting community, DaisyTrail. CraftArtist supports saving as both bitmap and vector graphics, including SVG for use with professional cutting machines.
What graphics file formats can I open or import?
You can directly open PDFs as fully editable pages, so you can repurpose the content or turn items into Digikits, and import photos, embellishments and graphics in formats including JPG, PNG, TIFF, Adobe® Photoshop® PSD, Microsoft HD Photo, PaintShop® Pro, SVG and others
