In a clear and accessible way, Cathie Rigby teaches the basics of the Cricut Expression™ machines (both the original and the new Cricut Expression™ 2) and cutting for beginners. For advanced crafters, this book instructs on features such as modes and functions, and teaches how to create with color, texture, and dimension. A cutting guide teaches the perfect settings to cut every type of material. A separate chapter introduces the new features of Cricut Expression™ 2 and explains how it differs from the original Expression machine. More than 50 creative projects inspire ideas for home décor, gifts, parties, cards, and scrapbook layouts.
Cathie Rigby has taught Cricut, Design Studio and Gypsy classes for four years in the Salt Lake City area. She currently teaches at Roberts Arts & Crafts and Hobby Lobby stores and hosts scrapbook retreats and Cricut Cruises.
