How to Use Cricut Design Space with Artfully Sent

I decided to make a video showing how to use the Cricut Design Space software with the Cricut Close to My Heart Artfully Sent cartridge. The Design Space software is used only with the Cricut Explore machine.

There have been questions about how to size the cards, find the images, etc.  Check out the video below to see how to do this (click HERE if you can't see the video):

Also, to make matters easier, head over to the Non-Crafty Crafter's Blog HERE and download the Artfully Sent handbook that has all the image codes in it. Narelle spent a lot of time compiling this info so be sure and follow her site and leave her a sweet comment!

When you spend $50+, you can pick up the

January stamp of the month, shown above, for just $5!

You can order on my shopping site HERE.
