Get the most out of your Cricut and make die-cut images that are anything but one-dimensional as you work with vinyl, fabric and more!

Discover functions you never even knew existed on your Cricut Expression®! Join author and Cricut expert Cathie Rigby as she reviews machine essentials, reveals an easy-to-read cutting guide and shares the five rules for Cricut success that every paper crafter should know. Learn about the mode and function buttons to see the endless possibilities your Cricut has to offer, such as creating a crazy effect with the Mix 'n' Match button or a large image with the Fit-to-Page button. Then, enjoy a fun introduction to Cricut Cuttables® as you create a gorgeous 3-D flower and a festive banner. Plus, explore unique materials and techniques as you work with vinyl and create stencils for beautiful glass etching. Also, learn how to cut and layer with fabric.
