Learn How To Use The Cricut Design Studio

Are You Tired of Spending Your Precious Scrapbooking Time Trying to Figure Out the Design Studio software?"

We can save you hours of frustration and failed
attempts to create the cuttings you want! - Read More about this Useful Guide --
If you want to save hours of frustration trying to 'figure out' the software, learn what the expert designers already know, or even if you just want to be able to cut connected words and shadows, then this is the most important letter you'll read all year!

Cricut Machine with 1 Cartridge

Here's why...

* You won't find the directions you need to create in Design Studio from the "manual".
o Other than the basic functions, the "manual" leaves you high and dry when it comes to answering the "How do I...?" questions.

* You will save hours of frustrating trial and error.
o Nothing is more frustrating than having a specific idea in mind and not being able to make the machine do what it needs to do to make it happen!
o It only makes it worse when you finally think you have it figured out, only to cut and ruin another piece of specialty paper.
* This will teach you how to:
o weld individual images and letters together to form one cutting
o create shadows for welded words and images
o quickly find the exact shape you need without searching through each cartridge
o position the cutting precisely where you want it on the mat (you can use those scraps of cardstock you've been saving and know for sure that they will line up with the cutting)
o update your Firmware...and why it is vital you do it
o how to manipulate a letter or image to make it the exact shape you need for your project
o use multiple cutting mats and layers in one project
o weld an image inside of a frame
o much, much more! Learn More -

How to Make Homemade Lollipops

Lollipops can be made from a kit (as shown) or from scratch as explained below.

The secret to making lollipops is to assemble all molds and other equipment before making the candy. Once the candy is ready, you must work quickly to get it poured and to get sticks or cords inserted before the candy hardens. If candy sets up in pan before you get it poured, it can be re-heated over low heat if it has not already hardened too much. Be careful the mixture is very hot! It hardens and cools quickly once it touches the cold metal of the molds.

Instructions: Things you will need: Vegetable oil; lollipop recipe; icing (optional); sugar Tools & Equipment: Metal lollipop molds or cookie cutters; pastry brush' lollipop sticks, popsicle sticks, gift-wrap cord, or fabric ribbon, aluminum foil; plastic wrap.

1) Assemble all molds or cookie cutters and brush inside surfaces with oil. Arrange molds, leaving room between them to insert sticks or cords. If using cookie cutters, arrange on large piece of aluminum foil.
2) Assemble sticks, or cut cord desired length if you wish to hang lollipops.
3) Prepare lollipop recipe. Quickly pour hot candy mixture into prepared molds, or in cutters about 1/8 inch deep. Once all mixture is poured, press sticks in indentions of molds, and twirl sticks to embed them in candy. If using cookie cutters, wait until candy is firm around edges but still soft in center, then lift off cutter and press stick or cord into candy. If candy hardens before all sticks are inserted, you can attach them with a small amount of hot lollipop mixture. Let cool.
4) Release shapes by lifting out of molds, or peeling away from aluminum foil if cookie cutters were used. Outline or highlight shapes with icing, if desired.
5) Wrap lollipops tightly in plastic wrap and store in a cool dry place.
