Hi there! It’s Ilyssa here from Domestic Heights.

When I first got my Cricut, it sat in the corner of my bedroom for about a week. 

It just seemed a bit overwhelming setting everything up, downloading software, connecting the machine to the computer…

So much technology! 

I just wanted to make a simple birthday card for a friend. 

Fast forward a truck load of wasted material and hundreds of projects later, I want to share with you, my fellow Cricut crafter, all the things I wished someone had summarized for me in the beginning.

Here are a few of the things I’ve designed and made just recently. ↓↓↓

This could be you in just 90 minutes!

Getting started with your Cricut has never been easier with this Cricut Design Space digital guide + mini video e-course

Crack Cricut Design Space with this e-book and mini e-course bundle

Example Filled Tutorials

I like learning by doing...

Customize your gifts, handmade thank you cards, DIY decor... practice with fun projects

What's Included

Module 1 : Welcome and Cracking the Cricut e-book

This 72-page reference guide will cover all Cricut Space functions with image filled tutorials.

Cracking the Cricut is a quick reference for Cricut Design Space that you can use to learn for the first time and keep as a cheat sheet once you’ve mastered the basics.

Whether you have a Cricut Explore, Maker, or Joy machine, get started in a matter of hours.

This bundle covers the Cricut Design Space app for Desktop, iPad, iPhone, Tablet, or Android Phone devices.

Module 2: Designing with Shapes

In this second module, we cover the basics of designing within Cricut Designs Space.

Each video is 10 to 15 mins long and features an example project with associated practice templates included.

Make this cute Daisy Card at the end of this module!

Module 2: HTV and Iron On Projects

I know for many crafters, the whole motivation behind getting a Cricut was to make those custom family T-shirts for that trip to Disneyland.

Yup, I’ve been there too! Learn the basics of working with designs for HTV.

All video tutorials are based on the desktop version of the Cricut Design Space app, the limited screen space of the mobile iOS and Android apps makes it difficult to fully perform some of the tasks needed for these projects.

Module 3: Vinyl Projects

Prepare yourself for some advanced crafting here!

Why settle for a plain tumbler when you can have it encrusted in rhinestones!

Add a little sparkle in your life with this fun bedazzling vinyl project in this module.

Module 5: Fonts and Glyphs

Step up your card giving game with this custom floral creation.

Why pay $15 for that pop up card when you can make your own custom creation for way less!

All of the base templates for these projects are included. Just download and craft along!

Module 6: Drawing and Text

Has your handwriting disintegrated to a first grader’s level with all this typing?

Don’t worry, I’m going to show you how to use your Cricut to fake hand lettering.

All your friends and family are going to be so impressed when they get that custom addressed envelope for the holidays this year!

Module 7: Contour

Ah, Contouring, no, it has nothing to do with makeup.

Contour might be the most misunderstood function in the history of Cricut crafting.

I will show you how to use this enigmatic function and how to make the most of it.

Module 8: Making Stickers with Print and Cut

Plaster your fridge with custom dog magnets because you can.

What’s the point of getting a Cricut if you can’t make customized stickers with your dog (or cat or pet chinchilla)! I’ll show you the basics of the print and cut function in this module.

Module 9: Working with Photos

We finish out this mini-eCourse with a fun project vectorizing your favorite photo.

Whether you’re making a custom mug for a dog lover or celebrating with a personalize anniversary gift, learn the basics of photo editing within Cricut Design Space.

What Format is the Mini e-course?

I know everyone learns in different ways so I’ve included a mix of different teaching media.

With both videos and written tutorials, there is sure to be something for you. 

But don’t worry, I completely understand that even the most diligent student doesn’t want to wade through 35 hours of video where you are literally watching the glue dry on the paper flowers.

I’ve edited my material to digestible, concise modules that you can cover in just one afternoon.
