Cricut Expression for the New User Post 4 of 5

This post is from 2011 and is more of a history of Cricut post now.

Hello my fellow Cricut enthusiasts!  Now that we’re on Day 4 are you starting to feel like you can take your Cricut out of the box yet? I know some of you still have it boxed up.  Hmmm.  What did I tell you?  It won’t work until you take it out of the box, plug it in and turn it on! 😉 You can do it!  Make this machine work for YOU!  You don’t work for it (well, not until you start buying more cartridges, then you do work for it, LOL!).  I have the last of the 3 part video series for you today.  I hope it helps you!  Don’t worry, I still have something coming tomorrow too.

In this video I used these products: Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, Zig 2 Way Glue Pen, QuickStik Pen, Tweezer Bee Tweezers, Scotch 714 ATG tape gun there is also a Pink ATG. Lastly, I showed you the Joy’s Life Lots of Pun clear stamps.  You can take a look at those and my other products on my Products Page.

Here are links to DAY 1, DAY 2 and DAY 3.

Come back tomorrow for more New Cricut User Info!

    Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making these videos to help us become familiar with our new Cricut!

  3. I am a newbie and need all the help I can get. Not sure how to completely use my “Create” I bought myself for Xmas. I would have loved to have bought the “Expression” but just couldn’t afford it. Now my goal is to try and enjoy my machine and not go over my monthly budget. So anything that is free will help. Thanks for the vids and PLEASE keep them coming! 🙂

    Joy thank you so much I’m learning so much from your video’s. I do have to admit the Cricut can be scary at first but you explain so well.
