Getting Started with Cricut

If you are new to Cricut you are probably like me when I started. Staring at a box a bit nervous and not sure where to start. Cricut makes starting a breeze. Simply unbox your machine, install Cricut Design Space, connect it to your computer (either through USB or Bluetooth) and start creating.

Cricut Design Space makes creating simple too. Once you have created an account you have access to fonts and images that you can merge together to create whatever you can imagine. If you sign up for Cricut Access you have access to even more and let me tell you it is well worth it.

Most beginner Cricut users are starting with either an Explore Air 2 or a Cricut Joy machine. If you are using a Maker, these projects are still great Cricut projects for beginners.

  • Cardstock: One of the first projects most people start with is either paper or cardstock. It is relatively inexpensive and a great way to learn how your machine works. Check out how I made these Kids School Year Files with Cricut cardstock.

  • Infusible Ink: My absolute favorite project to do with Cricut is Infusible Ink. At first glance it seems difficult, but I think it might be the easiest. In just a few simple steps you can create travel bags, pillows, coasters and more.
