Wink Umm Hi.......

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum (or any forum at all) and dont know where to start. Any suggestion?

I majorly want to learn techniques and get new ideas as I'm new to the crafting world. I currently have a Cricut expression 2 and a Sizzix Big Kick machine. I would like to learn how new technique or ideas at card makings or scrapbooking.

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome from New Zealand! I would suggest you click on 'Tutorials' at the top of this page and have a look at the different techniques there. Have fun exploring and do ask if you have any questions. We love helping newbies!

Hi, and welcome! I'm pretty new myself, but I think you'll find everybody here is extremely friendly and helpful. I started out by watching YouTube videos on different techniques, using the tools that I had (and some that I didn't, hence my credit card bill Once you start practicing some techniques, there is a whole Techniques forum where you can ask questions about the process. Check out the Tool Talk forum as well — each die cutting tool has its own FAQ. And I would just look around. Lots of good stuff here!

Hi Candy! I have some good links in my signature to our newsletter and some other things that might help you - we do a new tutorial each week and there are lots of fun forum threads. This forum has some chat threads on the Cricut and the Big Shot/Big Kick you might like Splitcoaststampers Stamping Tool & Product Talk Forum: Cuttlebug, Cricut, Crop-a-dile, Stampendous & More FAQs

Let me know if I can help you with anything.
