Beginner Level of Difficulty

This is a list of all my beginner level tutorials.  This is the place to start if you aren’t confident or to pick your first project.  Just because these are the beginner level tutorials doesn’t mean that they LOOK LIKE beginner projects.  Some of them are quite fancy and look like they took quite a bit of effort to make.

Just click on the read more button to see the whole tutorial.  Download links are included inside each project.  

So pick your poison and enjoy.  If you have any questions you can post a comment below, email me, or post the question at my Facebook Group, The Crazy Cricut Lady Group.
