Cricut Series 1 (Episode 72)

Hi everyone!  I have decided that I am going to film a series of videos dedicated just to the Cricut.  If you have any suggestions please let me know.

  1. Thanks for the video Robyn! i have had the cricut for almost a year now and it still confuses me. If you could do a video on the mickey cartridge that would be helpful. Thanks

  4. I just got my E - Black Friday - and have been in awe of all the extra buttons that it has versus the baby. Thanks SO much for doing the videos :)

  5. Thanks Robyn, I love my E, but I never get around to 'playing' with it so I have not used a lot of the extra buttons. I always seem to just go and cut what I need and tell myself I will play around later. This is a much faster way for me to 'play' with it.

  6. Thanks Robin for the great video. I always love your videos and this was no exception. I am looking foward to your series on using the Cricut.

    What cartridge did you use for this video?

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  7. As all the others, I thank you for this video. I just ordered the Cricut (the first one not the Expressions) and I'm anxious to learn the basics (since I think you used the other one). I know that you did some previous videos that I think used the other and so I am looking forward to watching them again after Christmas for when my new machine arrives! Yay! Thanks for all the info you share with us!

  8. Of all the machines out there on the market, I think the Cricut has the highest learning curve. I'm so glad that your tutorials are going to take the mystery out of this great tool. I have the original Cricut, but you may convince me to get the E. I look forward to upcoming tutorials. Thank you and Happy Holidays.

  9. Great beginner video Robyn! Can't wait to see what's next! How about a video on the Mix 'n Match button and the Xtra 1 and Xtra 2 buttons?

  10. Love the idea! Now if I can just get my speakers to work so I can hear the video.

    Is that you I saw on the Cricut newsletter with the OKC Swarm?

  11. Thanks for the video Robyn.
    I still just have the Baby Bug, but this will be very helpful to plenty of the newbies. Hopefully I will have an E one day & I will probably referr back to your videos for help too.

  12. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the cricut. I have had mine for a year and still dont know how to use it. I finally learned how to use a smaller piece of paper thanks to your video. I will be back each day looking for your new lessons =)

  13. Great video. I am slowly being swayed toward the Cricut. LOL You videoes have got me to thinking that perhaps I would really like to have one.

  14. I am so excited that you are doing a series on the Cricut. I've had mine for a year and learned from your first video things I didn't know. Thanks so much Robin and Merry Christmas!

  17. Thanks so much for starting a cricut series! I just upgraded from the original Sizzix to the Cricut Expression last week, so I've got a LOT to learn!

  18. Hi! Great Job on the video! I'm looking forward to more of them. Also a hint... i just found out a cool way to make sure my paper is sticking to my mat is to go over it with a brayer. Works great!!
    Thanks for doing the video!

  19. I'll add my thanks to all the others! I bought a Cricut off Craigslist months ago, and just haven't taken the time to learn how to use it. PLEASE continue on with your videos! They are so very helpful.

  20. Thanks so much for the video! I'll be tuning in for future installments as well. VERY helpful to a newbie like me!

  21. Thanks for starting this series. I have my bug for over 1 year, and have not used it, since my first encounter was disappointing. could you go over the depth of the blade, the tension, and speed #s, please
    Thanks

  22. Great Video, Robyn. I have the small Cricut and have many many carts. Have not used all of them yet. I am a scrapbooker that is slowly switching over to card making and haven't used my Cricut all that much. Will love to see all of your video's. I wish I had the Expression instead of the little one, I like the idea of auto fill. Sure could use it on the baby machine.

    Maybe once your thru with the Cricut Video's, you could do one on the Cuttlebug, if you own a cuttlebug. I love my cuttlebug.....

  25. omg this vid is awesome! i really want a cricut but it'll prolly be awhile before i can afford one so in the mean time, your vid fills all my cricut needs! lolz.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great stuff, Robyn! A good place to send the Cricut helper buddies when they are stuck for information!
    I have been paired up but no requests for help yet, LOL.
    Even old-timers will find some useful information here on those buttons we haven't pushed yet.

    Keep up the good work.

  27. Thanks for doing this video series. I have both the baby and E and love to watch videos on how to do stuff. I am always picking up a thing or two. When you are done with this you can do the tricks and tips with Design Studio.

  31. Great video Robyn ... this series on the Expression is going to come in very handy! CAROL

  32. GREAT VIDEO!
    i had no idea you can do that with the 8 1/2 x 11 papers!

    I would love to learn how to weld with the cricut instead of using the DS.

    Cant wait for the next one :)

  35. Hi Robyn,
    Thanks so much for doing these videos for the Cricut! I just got one for Christmas and it is very intimidating with all the buttons and dials so I am eager to learn from you!!!!! I'm really confused at this point!!! Love your videos!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This was interesting even though I have the original machine and am familiar with it's use. Looking forward to future videos. But in the next ones, can you please mention which cartridge you used?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you sooo much Robyn... I am hoping this will help me with the DS too. Thanks again for taking the time to do this.

  38. Wonderful video. I have had my little bug and also the big bug for so long and there are so many things to learn. Thank you for helping with all that. I can understand so much better when I actually see something rather than just reading.

  39. Robyn,
    I just switched to the E on Black Friday and your videos are being really helpful. I never really thought I used the baby bug to its full potential, but with your help I will the E. I gave my baby bug to my cousin for Christmas along with a few cartridges and she was thrilled. Anyway, thanks for the tutorials. Much appreciated!!!

  41. Thanks for this series- I am lurking and learning until I can afford an Expression- I love my baby bug!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have to tell you that I am so happy with your tutorials, most especially with the expressions that you have provided for us. I am in awe of what you have done. I just ordered the Wild Card last weekend and after seeing your tutorials tonight, I am planning on spending the day with my cricut. I did not think that I needed the expressions because I was happy with the personal one. I think everyone should have it now!!!!! Thanks for all of your lessons.

  43. Where did you learn so much about
    the cricut?
    I got mine a few days ago.
    wish me luck.
    I will be watching the rest of your videos.
    They are great.
    Thank you

  44. Hey robyn i think these videos are awesome

  45. Hey there! This is my first time on your blog spot tonight, as I am learning how to do the demos for the Gypsy in our store at Michael's Arts and Crafts! But first... I needed to learn the Cricut machine! Thanks to you, you are helping me understand it visually, since I am not much of a read and learn type of chick. I will MOST DEFINITELY forward your site onto some of the scrapbookers that visit our store, as it will give them additional info!

    So glad I browsed your site!

  46. Giant thanks!!!!
    This is SOOO much better than plowing through the manual :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thank you, thank you, thank you for these wonderful tutorials! NOW I know how to set my machine for my paper that is less than 12 x 12! I like to draw my images first before I cut them and I couldn't figure out why the blade housing wouldn't return to the starting point once I changed from the marker back to the blade. Thanks to your tutorial, I now know how to set my paper size! You're the greatest!!!!

  48. Very good video... I'm trying to learn the how to's - so I'll watch a many more. Thanks for having the available.

  49. I love love love your videos and I know how to use my cricut expression pretty well but it always confuses me when you load your mat backwards (not the arrow first) lol (:
