Free Cricut Design Space tutorials for beginners. Join the free mini course here!

When you decided to buy a Cricut I bet you were pretty darn excited right? I’ve owned 5 of these machines over the past 8 years and the excitement of opening a new box has never faded. One of the first things every new beginner does is search for good Cricut tutorials to teach them how to use their new machine.

BUT, if you are brand new to Cricut, you may be feeling quite intimated about learning the machine and the Design Space software. After all, getting over the learning curve is what will allow you to soar inside the Cricut craft world.

Cricut really is the machine that allows everyone the ability to make something they love with their own hands. From versatile vinyl, cuter than cute sewing projects, paper crafts, and a ton more creative projects await you on the other side of the learning process.

So I want to help launch you into this world of crafts with this FREE 3 day Cricut Tutorials Boot Camp.

So here’s the deal, most crafters get overwhelmed and frustrated with their Cricuts if they start trying to craft before learning how to actually use the machine, Design Space, and work with different types of materials. Please do yourself a favor and learn before you craft!

    1. Hi Carla!

      This will be taught from a desktop perspective because mobile devices have limited functionality for Cricut Design Space. 🙂
