What Makes Learn Your Cricut Different?
WRITTEN FOR YOUR SPECIFIC MACHINE
Learn what your Cricut can do—and only what your Cricut can do! No sorting through tutorials that don't apply to your Cricut machine.
TEXT IS EASY TO READ
This book is written in a simple sans-serif font, making it easy to read. Highlight, take notes in the margins—make this book your own!
DESIGNED TO BE PRINTED
While there are full-color images, I have taken care to not include a ton of unnecessary color-heavy pages that are costly to print.
100% ORIGINAL CONTENT
Many Cricut books on Amazon and elsewhere are full of stolen content. Learn Your Cricut is 100% original content and photographs!
I get it. Learning your Cricut is hard!
It can be so overwhelming to start using your Cricut.
When I got my first Cricut machine in 2014, I completely ruined my projects. There were no tutorials or instructions back then, and I had to figure everything out on my own. I made a ton of mistakes but also learned so much in the process.
Fast forward seven years and now I want to save you those headaches!
My Learn Your Cricut ebooks take away the frustration of crafting with your Cricut and gives you step-by-step techniques for using your specific machine!
I'll show you everything from getting your machine out of the box and set up to doing your very first Cricut project. You'll learn all of the foundational techniques you need to use your machine—all without a bunch of confusing jargon or unfamiliar terms.
You'll go from confused to confident, whether you just got your first Cricut or you've had one for a while and it's just collecting dust!
