How to Use the Cricut Explore and Design Space!

I thought it would be a good idea to put all my Cricut Explore and Design Space video tutorials/links in one post and here it is:

Cricut Explore/Design Space (all with video):
8 Reasons to Love Cricut Explore
How to Weld and Shadow in Design Space
How to Write and Cut
How to Import SVG Files
How to Link Cartridges to Design Space
How to Use Custom Settings
List of Cricut Cartridges in the Subscription for Design Space (no video)

 I add more, I will update this post so you may want to bookmark it for the future!

Also, here is a link to the Cricut site with the FAQs about the Explore and Design Space:
Cricut Explore FAQs

Also, don't miss out on this:
Cricut is running a Spring Sale now through April 6th and ALL cartridges and images are 30% when you enter "SPRING30" at checkout!  Very nice!

And if you missed out on some of those fabulous Creative Memories cartridges, they are on the Cricut site HERE and you can use the discount above ("SPRING30" at checkout), making a $29.99 cartridge now $21.00!  

They are the physical cartridges themselves, not digital images.  My favorites of the Creative Memories cartridges are Divine Wedding, Reminisce Accents, Tis the Season (FABULOUS) and Traveler!
