Learning the Cricut Design Studio Software is a website that is offering an e-book for sale, full of step-by-step screenshots of how to use the software and links to over an hour of video tutorials, further explaining the different techniques. Also included is a cheat sheet of sorts, showing shortcuts to create the items you want. This e-book was created by Brandi Gore, who has taught sold-out classes at CK Conventions and her local scrapbooking store (LSS). The people on the yahoo cricutcutter group recommend this book since the manual that comes with the Design Studio does not begin to fully explain all the wonderful things that the Design Studio Software can do for you. The e-book is $37 and has a 60 day money back guarantee. Click HERE to go to the website and read all about it.
I don't usually promote things like this on my blog, since a lot of times much info can be found for free on the internet. BUT, I do know the frustrations of trying to figure out the Cricut in general (hence all the message boards and yahoo groups). I do not receive any monies or such from this post. It is purely informational in nature and may save you a lot of time and frustration.
