Cricut Maker may just be my new crafting buddy! Oh. My. Goodness. So many possibilites!
*I’ve teamed up with Cricut Australia for my Youtube tutorial on this project (below).
Do you have one? A Cricut Maker? Explore? Joy? Okay, if you have no idea what I’m talking about, up until a month ago, I had only heard of all the Cricut madness going on in the crafting world. When my sister got hers last year, I began to see the way she was using it in her house, in her workplace, in their family’s dog breeding business for SO. MANY. THINGS. From labeling to cushion making, branding on merchandise and more.
Then when Cricut Australia reached out to see if I’d like to use the Cricut Maker to create a project for my Youtube channel, I knew I had to see for myself what all the creative fuss was about. Um … was NOT disappointed!
Cricut Maker Newbie here!
Disclaimer right up front that I am, of course, brand new to the Cricut machines, and so if you are a pro … try not to laugh at any of my noob mistakes while watching my video, k? Thanks. 😉
I was a little intimidated at first, and I’m not sure why … maybe because it connected to my computer (or ipad) and involved learning Cricut’s software program, Design Space. But, seriously, the Cricut team have make things SO EASY with step by step instructions that hold your hand through the process of connecting to the computer and signing on to their software. Not to mention a tutorial for EVERY question you can think of that you might be asking as you embark on this new creative adventure!
And so I began … you can watch the full video tutorial here below of the process I used to change up this IKEA step stool into a Farmhouse Kitchen stool with Cricut’s removable vinyl. So follow along as I get to know my Cricut. If you have a Cricut Maker, you can find this project in Cricut’s Design Space HERE.
