The instructions are pretty good, but I think most of the information can be found in the books that come with the cricut machines or on you tube. I also felt there were way too many pages dedicated to projects in this book. Pages 8 -60 are the actual cricut guide; and pages 61-205 are various projects. I subscribe to the Cricut Magazine for project/ideas and didn't really need another book for those. My granddaughters really like the book, and the projects do inspire them. The quality (copy, photo pages, sizes if print) are great especially for the price of the book.

The good - the book is well put together, many cute creative ideas to choose from and lists the page numbers, sizing for each cut-out. Helpful indeed for a newbie. Ok the bad - well I could only locate two projects in the entire book that required two cartridges to craft whatever beauty pictured. Some ideas used as many as six or seven different cartridges to complete. As a lay person and new Cricut owner -- I don't have that kind of inventory. For the seasoned Cricuteer who has it all it's likely a treasure but for me I promptly returned it.

If you are just starting out with the cricut and have a good selection of cartridges, then this book should be of help to you. I didn't find any of the projects difficult and it is laid out nicely with product info, cutting size, etc. Basic but a substantial sized book. Better priced for what it is then most other books in this category. More bang for your buck! If you are well versed in Cricut lingo and know basic functions then you may not find this book to be of value.

I do have to say, that although the Cricut Expression 2 is pictured...the projects are using the Cricut Expression with overlays and outdated functionality for the Cricut Expression 2.

I may buy again in book form, to hard to read on a Kindle. Great ideas but you need to be able to go back and forth in this book to get the full value out of it.

I took Cathie's class a while ago and felt totally confident to better use my cricut! I came home and promptly forgot it. I purchased this on my Kindle of all things! All the things I wanted to remember was in this book! There was a ton of ways to do cards or pages in the back of the book. I would have like a few more ticks or tips, but the important stuff you need is all here. The best thing in whole world of cricut is the chart of speeds, pressure and blade position for Paper, cardstock, EVEN CHIPBOARD. That is why this book is SO GOOD

My mom is addicted to scrapbook / card making and recently obtained a Cricut with about 20 cartridges. For the last 6 months I asked her how she liked the Cricut and her response was I have not used it yet. She advised that she read the manual and saw a video but did not feel comfortable with her Cricut. As a last ditch effort to keep her from wasting the prodcut I bought this book. After a week she said that she had started a few products after two weeks she said she was a master of the cricut.

The book was well laid out and easy to follow even for the tech challenged and the projects that they show were easy to make and really offered a hands on experience for the Cricut. My mom said this book is worth every penny and has already loaned it to a friend.

This book is well put together, very informative and lots of ideas. The pages are heavy paper, not flimsy. I recommend this book for anyone just starting out, but also helpful for those of us seasoned Cricut users. I've had my Cricut Expression about 2 years and will use this as a quick reference and for ideas. It is well worth the price!

I found this book bigger than expected. If you are a long time cricut user you will not need half of the book. But it has a variety of projects ideas using cartridges that usually comes with the machine, so you will be able to practice. I am a long time owner of a cricut but didn't use it much. This will really start my inspiration.
