    Hi everyone, I’ve been an artist and crafter for years. I’ve also got three Cricut machines, but I’ve never learned how to use them. The first ones, of course, you just put a cartridge in. But my last one, an Explorer 2, does not use cartridges and I don’t know how to use it. I’ve pulled up a couple titles in the Design Space catalog and cut them out, but most of the time, either it doesn’t cut through or the paper sticks to the mat. I’m hoping this club and material will help me.

    My son passed away unexpectedly 7 months ago and I’m now raising his sweet little boy. I want to scrapbook all the pictures and stories of them together to keep his Daddy’s memory alive. I think my Circut, Design Space and this community may be just the place to help me do that. Thank you all in advance❣️
