When I first started Cricut-ing many years ago, I immediately stopped buying greeting cards.
Back then I was a *big* greeting card buyer and easily spent hundreds of dollars every year in cards.
Suddenly having a Cricut was my reason to abandon that practice and make the cards myself.
I became so paralyzed with fear that my cards weren’t going to be “good enough” or “pretty enough” or “insert whatever reason here” that I just stopped sending cards.
It wasn’t until I realized that a homemade card is 100 times better than any store bought card that I began sending my greetings out again, which has rekindled my love of sending greetings.
Are you like me? Are you afraid that your work won’t be good enough? Or worse yet, have you left your Cricut in the Box because your afraid you won’t be able to create something?
If so, you aren’t alone. Every day I hear from Cricut owners that are afraid to show off their work. Or users that won’t even try.
Listen! Everyone has to start at the beginning. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. We are all “newbies” at one time. Don’t be afraid to try, but also don’t pile on huge expectations at first. Start small and slow. Cherish your first attempts. You will soon be making amazing things and you can look back on your beginning projects with appreciation.
But the bottom line is you have to take that first step!
So, please, take that machine out of the box and make something simple–like these quick cut cards.
Today’s Cricut Access Challenge is a bunch of very easy, quick cut cards suitable for Valentine’s Day or everyday.
Each card in the file is perfectly sized, so no fuss for you. Just pick out a few sheets of paper—any color will do!–and hit “Make”!
Within a few minutes you’ll have a half dozen cards in your little arsenal.
And, more importantly, you will have accomplished something.
Build on that!!
Remember this: “Every journey begins with the first step!” Here’s your first step.
Now, go forth and Cricut!
