Is it hard to learn to use a Cricut?

Updated: Oct 10, 2022

Hello, my friends, I wanna share my experience with my new baby, yes I called the Circut Maker 3, baby :) Cricut Maker 3 is very useful for artists and I enjoy using it. I recommend starting with adhesive vinyl and single-layer designs. In the box, you have a sample for text. After a lot of research, I have chosen to buy Cricut Maker 3. It has the added ability to use matless Smart Materials. Smart Materials allow you to do larger projects in a single long cut, up to 12 feet long. I think using a mat is not easy to peel your art. The most important thing that I have learned is what kind of paper or vinyl to use to have the best quality. Cricut can cut all sorts of paper materials, from delicate papers like crepe and tissue paper to heavier materials like thick cardstock and poster board. Printable vinyl is better than printable sticker paper. Vinyl stickers not only last longer, they always look much more professional. You can print full-color graphics on vinyl, so the design possibilities are endless. I bought my Circut Maker 3 from Kohls, I like this machine.

Once you get Design Space to set up your machine, you can pick Cricut Maker 3, and the system will guide you step by step and help you make a practice cut to make a sticker on the small piece of the removable vinyl.

I also bought all materials that I need to print and cut for my projects. It is really good if you want to have your small business at home. Here you go

First I tried to print stickers on adhesive paper that I bought from Amazon. I didn't like it because the paper looks cheap after printing. I love these printable vinyl sticker paper. I bought it from Amazon
