Good tutorial. Thank you.
Kelly Bennett (6 months ago)
Awesome video!! I have a question: I just got a Cricut and I’m clueless! I usually download from Etsy and print of my printer onto Avery labels. I can print onto Cricut sticker paper but I can’t figure out why it doesn’t cut the individual images? It just cuts a big square around all of the images. What am I doing wrong??
Melody Lane (6 months ago)
If your upload images you need to clean the white back ground, click the white with the magic wand.
Michelle Scott (9 months ago)
Hi Melody Lane, I was gifted an explore One. It was used. So I think. All I received was the machine it self, blade power cord and USB. I don't know if it had already been set up and registered. I cant ask either because sadly my friend who left it to me is no longer with us. I tried setting it up following your instructions but nothing popped up. When I typed in the set up website myself it says can not find website. Maybe it's my PC??
Connie's Creations (1 year ago)
Thank you for sharing, looking at getting one for Christmas this year xoxox

I added my cartridges onto my Cricut Craft Room & my Gypsy - my cartridges do not appear in my Cricut Design Space account. Do I have to reload all my 100+ cartridges again?
Margie Iwamoto (1 year ago)
Thank you for your quick response. I will log onto my account again to verify that I used the same log in information.
Melody Lane (1 year ago)
Margie Iwamoto if they are in cricut craftroom and you sign into design space with same log in they should be there, if not call support.

YouTube had this video in the list on the right. I hadn't seen it, so gave it a whirl. I ALWAYS learn something from you! It had never occurred to me to use Bluetooth to connect my laptop to the Cricut! I can be so dense, even though I'm really computer savvy. So, thanks again!
Melody Lane (1 year ago)
You're one of the thousands that stalk me it's okay 😉

Rita Dean (1 year ago)
I'm a newbie, just unpacked my Explore Air 2. All of the videos I watch seem to be for someone that knows at least something about how to use a Cricut. Is there any videos that will start at zero knowledge and proceed from there ?
Michelle Scott (9 months ago)
Newbie here too!! NO knowledge at all.
Joanne Orzabal (1 year ago)
Rita Dean me too!!! I’m sure I will have to learn quick.
mcomeslast (1 year ago)
Rita Dean the cricut videos are great. 2 sets, one foe the cricut, the other set for design space. Not comprehensive but a good intro.
Nadeen Robinson (1 year ago)
I wish I could help. I am a newbie like yourself and saying the same thing. I just purchased mine and am looking forward to get started. I hope you get the inspiration you need soon. :)

Hello... Thanks for this video.  I just bought my Cricut Explore Air 2 today so I can put my logo on things I make.  I noticed that Cricut cartridges is not included... Do I need them if I am uploading my own images?
Chris Bergeron (1 year ago)
I just bought the air 2 from home shopping channel and its lilac...love it..
Blueyes05 (1 year ago)
Hello.... I'm new to the Cricut world and I'm very excited to get started! I did the "create free sample" or tried to but I didn't engage the pen fully so I had no writing on it but didn't know how to go back and do it again. Is there a way to go back and start sample from the beginning? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Jeanette McGurty (1 year ago)
Thank you so much for your videos. l upgraded from my Cricut Expressions and l'm a visual learner so your videos are a blessing.
beandipshell (1 year ago)
I just did my first vinyl craft which is decorating my machine. I was scared I was going to make a mistake, so I knew I needed your assistance. Thank you so much. I did it!
Ivy Brinson (1 year ago)
Did you go back and weed out the center of your "O"?

Hi melody! Is the scoring tool working ok on your machine? Mine does not work. I push it in all the way and still won't work.
Amanda Casanova (1 year ago)
I tried to buy through your link and add the coupon code but it says not valid :(
Stacy Medina (1 year ago)
EEP! Ive been going round and round and guess I must ask a SILLY question. It says print this out on your home printer then insert that onto the mat after it's printed. The problem is that design space brings up My home printer (Epson 7520) properties box but doesn't "see" anything.. shows 0 pages. (my printer is stellar-- never a problem one) so Im so confused why it wont see/print this from DS. HELP! :- (
Stacy Medina (1 year ago)
Oh yes, no problem whatsoever on anything else I do.  Never has been.  Something with it just not seeing design space. yes I have all the dialogue properties correctly assigned.  I may need to chat with cricut.  Thanks for your response..  BLESSINGS TO YOU!
Melody Lane (1 year ago)
But you can print things from your computer no problem? Click on the dialog box and check your settings. when I hit print, in the lower right corner there is a link for dialog settings or something like that with our workforce 7620

Rateye Smertz (2 years ago)
Jesus Lady. I want to get this for my wife for Christmas. I'm trying to figure out how to set it up for the internet--------- but you are talking 50% faster than I can listen. Can you do it again but let your husband do the talking. ??
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
By the way, you don't set up the Explore for the internet, your computer should be hooked up to internet, you can set up bluetooth all from the computer. Good luck.
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
I am sorry you can not understand me, I am not married I can figure things out for myself. Maybe try these other videos to help you. https://youtu.be/VAR3reOS4B4 Or this one by a man https://youtu.be/guX4NxcUWZ8

How do you get the foil flat enough to work with
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
I just put it on the mat.
Beasha Bartlette (2 years ago)
Is adhesive foil removable?
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Alicia Gallegos (2 years ago)
Your coupon code is not working for me.
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
They stopped the codes from working on the Air 2 anymore, works on everything else.
Meaghan Larsen (2 years ago)
I wish Cricut made adhesive vinyl and foil in 12x12 sheets too because some times I just don't need a whole roll
Meaghan Larsen (2 years ago)
+Melody Lane the curl was driving crazy tonight trying cut it 😆
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
The sampler packs come in 12x12 sheet of each color.
Mary Kendrick (2 years ago)
That looks great well done! You have given me the confidence to buy the Cricut Explore air!
WalkingInTruthPC (2 years ago)
The MELODYLANE coupon code is NOT valid... What's up?
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
At the time of this recording it did work on the Air 2
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
They took all codes off the Air 2 it works for all other machines.
mary lou Ribbeck (2 years ago)

THELMA ESTRADA (2 years ago)

NEB Barnes (2 years ago)
I am debating on getting this but so scared. I have one of the original circuit machines. I think its the Explore. I have never linked any of my cartridges to anything. I guess though I will need to purchase some kind of lap top too. Black friday is coming. Going to have to watch your how to videos though.

Hi, you are so awesome!! Thank you!! This was great info! I don't see the pink one on the Cricut website but I will check back. I will definitely use the discount code. I greatly appreciate your help!! Have a great day!! Susan
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Mine was sent to me by Cricut. But you can get it here at Cricut, I have no idea when HSN will have them. Explore Air 2 bundles and if you have Access and Circle you save 20% and then with my code MELODYLANE you save another 15% and FREE shipping! You can get the NEW Explore Air 2 as low as $169. http://bit.ly/CEA2Bundles #ad If you don’t have Access you can get that for $9.99 for 1 month, then buy Circle and use the Access Discount along with my discount code to save the most money, then buy the machine. What is Circle & Access http://bit.ly/2dD9FeG Access http://bit.ly/accessML Link to Circle page http://bit.ly/29BUWgQ
Colette Bennett (2 years ago)
Just watched about 4hr of ur video's, u sure know ur stuff.  I have been on you tube for a week steady trying to figure out which machine to purchase as I never owned any of any kind at any time. Relying on my computer program to make my custom cards printing only.  It ended up between the Cricut and the Brother scan n cut 2.......so I finally conceded to the Cricut explore air 2, and will get the other at a later date. Love all your video's, I'm sure I will be viewing more as I try to master this machine.......Thank you for sharing.

1bjwlsn (2 years ago)
Help Melody, I purchased the cricut explore air 2. Last night I spent over an hour downloading the cartridges from my gypsy. When I go into my account I cannot find the cartridges.
1bjwlsn (2 years ago)
I have cartridges in craft room. But still can't find them in design space. It is saying my machine is not hooked up, but it is and plugged in. Need more Help. Thanks for what you have done so far.
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Then after syncing they will be in Design Space
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
1bjwlsn you have to sync your gypsy to cricut craft room you can not link to design space if they are linked on your gypsy
I don't plan to get this one yet but it is still neat to watch 😄
Linda McNeely (2 years ago)
Melanie my daughter has an older cricket which ones come with the space to put a wifi adapter?
Linda McNeely (2 years ago)
thanks so much.
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Only the original Explore and the Explore one has a spot for bluetooth adapter, the Airs are all built in bluetooth.
Linda McNeely (2 years ago)
oh finallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy no one has shown one on decorating their machine! I had to give up and do mine without any inspiration! glad you are doing it.
Amy Mejlak (2 years ago)

Jaydee travels (2 years ago)
maybe they own other brands LOOL
Gerry Musser (2 years ago)
I think they probably clicked the button in error. There is absolutely NOTHING to dislike!!!
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Maybe they don't like the color of the machine? or me, or could be anything?

Great video Mel, you do amazing work to make sure we can use our machines without frustration. Love all the camera angles! That took some work girl! To quote Ms. Joan "You Rock!"
Melody Lane (2 years ago)
Thank you so Much Maymay, it did take me 2 days to edit. And cutting it on cardstock instead of vinyl did not help, but hopefully people learn from my mistake of forgetting to set the dial.
