Cricut Project Ideas

These Cricut project ideas are crafts and cards I have made that I would like to share with you all. I own a Cricut Expression personal die-cutter machine, and I just love it.

I'm a beginner at using the machine. I have been absolutely amazed at the creativity and talent I see from other people's Cricut projects. In fact, I hesitated even posting any of my projects since my card making is very simple compared to others, and I'm so new at this. I often don't have all the pretty papers and embellishments on hand, but I thought maybe there are others like me who would like to know very simple instructions on how to make a very simple card, especially if you are in a hurry or don't have many supplies on hand. If so, this page is for you!

When I first began using the Cricut, I found a few things a bit confusing at times. That being said, each project includes all the cut sizes, and even the buttons you need to press so there is no confusion. You will find that each craft page does not include step by step photos; this is because most of the steps are simple and the same (cutting and gluing). I only own a few cartridges, but I hope to add to my collection as time goes by. In addition, I have the Cricut Design Studio Software so some projects also include cut files. You will need the same software and cartridges to use these files. And please, as always, feel free to add your own Cricut project ideas to this page. There is a form to do so near the bottom of the page. Happy Cricuting!
