Cricut 101: Lesson 2

Okay so now that we know what tools we need for our Cricut machine, let's go over how to use it!

The very first thing you are going to want to do is go to Obsessed with Scrapbooking and print their handy dandy settings table. Trust me on this, it's a life saver! 

Next, watch THIS video from that teaches you how to load and unload your paper. Under the video there are steps as well with photos and more instruction which is very useful! I tried to make you a video of all of this but it didn't work out so well, technical difficulties :)

Once you learn to unload and load your paper, you will want to watch the videos below that I made for you using the cartridge "Create A Critter". I also go over the different buttons on the keypad. It's a little blurry, so I am putting a link below to an excellent website that goes over the buttons in much more detail.

Oh and just a warning, this was my first time doing videos! Yikes! I had no idea I had such a silly voice :)

Excellent article by

Thank you for the huge response to my first Cricut 1o1 lesson, I hope this one helped as well! Please let me know if you have any questions or what you would like me to go over in the future. Cricut 101: Lesson 3 will be going over cartridges and I will post that next week. 

P.S. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions! auntielolocrafts at gmail dot com. Seriously I want everyone to enjoy their Cricut's as much as I have enjoyed mine :)
