Okay so now that we know what tools we need for our Cricut machine, let's go over how to use it!
Next, watch THIS video from http://www.scrapbook.tv/ 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 Scrapbook.com
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 :)
