Looking for some easy Cricut Maker Projects? Here are 10 easy projects to get started with that require less than five materials to make!
The cricut machine can be just as overwhelming as it is amazing. There's SO much you can do, it's hard to know where to even start. Often the easiest way to get started is simply to start. Choose a project, and learn just what you need to know for that first project. But I know that's hard - so I've made a list of resources that might help while you decide where to start. Tools & Accessories What else should I buy? Tools & Supplies that will help with your projects - https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/09/what-do-i-need-to-get-started-with-new.html Apps & Websites to use with cricut - sites & software that will make a lot of this easier! http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/11/which-apps-websites-to-use-with-cricut.html Do I Need to Subscribe to Cricut Access? No. You may choose to, but you do not need to! I have never subscribed, and I have not missed it at all. There are thousands and thousands of free projects you can download online, then upload into design space! Where to find More Freebies than you could ever use - https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/12/freebies-for-cricut-how-to-use-design.html To use free svgs in design space, you just need to download them, unzip the folder, find the svg (it often looks like an html file, displaying your default browser icon) and upload that to design space. How to View SVG Files as Thumbnails http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/01/how-to-see-thumbnails-of-svg-files.html What are the different kinds of vinyl? HTV is the same as iron on - it's Heat Transfer Vinyl, and what you need if you are putting vinyl on fabric. 651 is permanent vinyl, and 631 is temporary vinyl (for things like wall decals) Which Vinyl Do I Need & Where Should I Buy It? http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/09/cricut-which-vinyl-do-i-need-where-do-i.html This is one of the first "problems" you may run into when uploading photos to design space. If you upload something that is not an svg, it will automatically make it a print then cut image. You can clean it up and have it just cut, but you will need to change it to cut at the top of the page.

No. You may chose to buy one, and you will hear a lot about how you have to "use all of your body weight" to use an iron (false) and that vinyl will "not hold up as well" without a heat press (also false). Another option is an Easy Press, which is basically an iron made by cricut, with a chart for temps and times. But a plain old regular iron will work just fine too. https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/11/using-plain-old-regular-iron-for-htv.html A Project To Start With - Using Vinyl For the First Time - Using your Cricut To Cut A Vinyl Decal For The Very First Time: https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2019/11/cricut-for-newbies-lesson-2-vinyl-on.html Looking for more?
