Have you been afraid to take your Cricut Maker or Explore Air out of the box? Or is it proudly displayed in your craft room with the burning desire to be loved? These are just a few of the reasons I decided to help you out by creating with love, a Cricut Design Space Tutorial that is user-friendly for Beginners.
Perhaps, you’ve had this odd “lost” feeling. Like now what?!? Or maybe even; but they made it look so easy! Ha, love that one!
It’s even possible you just threw in the towel at some point. Dare I say there may even have been a few crosswords 🤦♀️Not to worry! I am so happy I can provide some simple basics with this Cricut Design Space Basics Tutorial. I also made a video. Ok, a long video. But the reason it IS long is to help the newbies! Also, the beauty of video is you can speed it up or fast forward or pause at any time.
Where to begin once you have a Cricut machine
Start right here and download this Free Cricut Design Space tutorial I created for you. I made it for my virtual friends out there that are completely new to Cricut Design Space or next to new.
I designed it to start at the beginning. While you read through this guide, I suggest having your Cricut machine and your Cricut Design Space application open so you can practice while going through the guide or shortly after.
It would be difficult to just watch a video of someone who already knows their machine just zip right through everything. This method is fine if you’re familiar with how to use Design Space and your machine.
This is also why I set out to provide a long video on YouTube. I’m hoping you will go over it multiple times and practice along with me or even pause while you practice and then forward it to the next step.

I want to encourage you to learn the many features Design Space has to offer because once you are, and the more familiar you become with the process, you will soon be an empowered Creating with Love kind of wonderful person ready and eager to help our fellow Cricuteers!
Plus it is SO fulfilling to Create with Love and give that gift to someone. This helps enrich your soul and someone else’s soul as well 🙌💖
Once you complete the Cricut Design Space Basics Tutorial
YaY! First of all, give yourself a big hug! It’s not always easy learning something completely new. But if you’re kind to yourself and take baby steps and do a little at a time, with practice and patience and yes even a few mistakes along the way, you will not only surprise yourself but even with those you share your new-found craft with!
Soon I plan to start a private Facebook Group where newbies can feel comfortable asking questions and I can do some live training as well. I will email anyone who signs up to get this free guide when I open the group up.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions or special requests, feel free to reach out to me. It’s been a while since I was a newbie and you may think of a tutorial that would really be helpful to newbies that I have not thought of yet.
I added all of my contact info in the Cricut Design Space Basics Tutorial.
