These twelve fonts are perfect for Valentine’s Day, and they’re all inside Cricut Design Space for immediate use for Access Members.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone and try a new font that’s unlike what you usually use. You can get creative, bubbly, romantic, and fun with your Valentine fonts. If you’re planning to make V-Day crafts in Cricut Design Space, here are twelve festive fonts to try. *When searching for them, make sure you uncheck Kerned Fonts Only.
1. Annie Leu
Either this font is new-ish or I’ve somehow missed it all this time. I love the nod to hand-lettering, which is something I’ve tried to learn in the past but wasn’t very successful with. This would be a great font for making print and cut stickers.
I’ve said it in previous font guide blog posts, and I’ll say it again and again. Babette is my favorite script font. It looks great with just about anything. For Valentine’s Day, Babette would be really cute on a shirt or tote bag, or even an Infusible Ink wine bag blank.
3. Be Mine
Be Mine is a writing-only font, and it’s a little romantic paired with a lot of cuteness. And even though it’s kind of a script font, it’s simple enough that kids can read, too. I love Be Mine for writing names on gift tags.
4. BFC Foxy
BFC Foxy is a bold and bulgy font, which makes it perfect for pairing with another font. Try using it with a slim script font for major impact. You’ll look like a professional graphic designer and your Valentine will look better than store-bought. That type of pairing would look pretty sweet on a mug, too.
5. BFC Lovers Hearts
Okay, okay, BFC Lovers Hearts might be a bit stereotypical for Valentine’s Day. But hey, now is THE time to use it! It’s got cool ’70s vibes, making it a great font for a wooden sign project. Better break out your BrightPad, because those hearts are teeny tiny.
6. Heart Attack
Well isn’t this the cutest writing font you’ve ever seen? It’s like it was MADE for kids’ Valentine cards! How adorable would it be for your kiddo to walk into class with little gift bags with tags of each child’s name written with Heart Attack? I’m seriously sad that my son is too old for class gifts, so if you have young kids, please make this and send me pics.
7. Hiragino Mincho Pro
Looking for a Valentine font that’s a little less “commercialized” and a little more “classy? Hiragino Mincho Pro is your jam. It’s a classic serif style font, but bold enough that you won’t tear the G’s and Y’s when you’re weeding. It’s great for making a mini project for your spouse. Or your dog. Whichever one you love more. I won’t tell.
8. Love Affair
Love Affair is another writing-only font. I like this one because it’s part whimsy and part regal. It could be for kids or adults, and you can even beef up the downstrokes with a calligraphy marker after the Cricut finishes writing to make it your own.
9. Love Spell
I am really loving this Love Spell font. It’s another hand lettering style font, but it’s got those squiggles that give it some umph. I’m already planning to make some bookmarks using this font. It would also make a great monogram on a coaster.
Merlot might be the classiest font in Design Space at the moment. It’s the go-to for wedding projects, and it’s my personal favorite for winter solstice paper crafts. If your goal is fancy romance this Valentine’s Day, Merlot is the font you need.
If you have a son in grade school and you’re working on a Valentine craft for his BFFs, a mushy squiggly font isn’t the route he’s going to want to take. Enter Phosphate. It’s big, bold, and commands attention, but it’s dressed up enough to use it for a holiday like V-Day. Use it for punny valentine cards.
12. Typewriter Font
Hosting a Valentine’s Day party? Typewriter Font is the perfect font for making food tags. Use it to print-then-cut all the menu item names, then fold the cards into tents. Don’t forget to include any allergens underneath in an easy-to-read sans-serif font like Cricut Sans.

Hey Lela! Your article is very classic and helpful for new designers. All fonts are very classic that are mention in your article but I really like this style of Babette Font. I will try to use few fonts from this list in my upcoming projects. Thanks.
Brad Gandy says
We’re glad we could help, Oliver, and Babette is certainly one of our favorites since it’s a bold script font. Bold fonts are often much easier to apply.
