Default Have any of you bought the Cricut A to Z dvd?

Just wondering if anyone has seen this and if it's helpful. I have had my cricut for a year now but there are still a lot of things I'm unsure of how to do.

I have it and LOVE IT! I am finally really learning how to use my E instead of just using a "guess and check" strategy. I would highly recommend it. Also, I ordered the DVD fromt the Pink Stamper and I love that too. She has lots of cute projects. I am so wishing they had come out with these DVDs earlier...I have wasted a lot of paper with that Cricut...but have enjoyed every second!

Jen, I didn't know the Pink Stamper had a dvd also. I love her videos. Does she have tips and things like that or does she just show projects? Just wondering which one I should get first. I need to learn how to use the E better, kwim?

hsmom69, I would recommend getting the Cricut A-Z first then following up with the Pink Stamper. She does talk about the settings she is using but the Cricut A-Z really gets more in-depth. Honestly though they are only about $20 each so maybe you could swing them both with your Christmas/holiday money. Have fun!

I have both videos and love them both. The A to Z is over 3 hrs. long and packed with useful information. It was well worth the $20. The Pink 'stamper just has a handful of projects, a list of recipe's for the projects and out takes.

I just ordered my dvd! I want to be able to do all there is to do with my Cricut. I'm so excited! Hopefully it won't take too long to arrive.

You all sold me. Just placed the order. I think I've just about used up my crafting budget for next year since buying the Expression a month ago. I knew this would happen, which is why I held off for so long.

Smiles,
Anne

Just wondering how you guys like the DVD. I pretty much know how to use most of the functions. Do you think I'd still benefit from it? I might start teaching a class so that's why I am considering getting it.

I really think it is a good investment no matter what your level of experience. I like how she explains things and if you are planning to teach a beginner level class, the DVD may help you remember what the basics are so you don't get too advanced for a "green-horn." I wish someone around here taught classes, I think that would be super fun! Good luck!

So glad to read positive reviews. I've just received it along with the cutting guide and haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

Craft -E -Corner has it for $19.84 w/free shipping and if you sign up for her newsletter, you get 10% off.

There are so many videos on You Tube, I can't see spending any money on DVDs. I hope you all enjoy them, though. Anything that makes it easier and more fun to use our Cricuts is a good thing.

Is this useful for the regular Cricut or just the Expression?

Cyndi,

Thanks for the info on Craft-e-corner. I started to buy this last night on the creators site but thought it was too much with shipping. This saved me 10 dollars so I did it. Thanks for taking the time to share the information.
