Thursday Tutorials - Downloading Cricut Handbooks

Hello all, JoNeita from Create with JoNeita here with a video tutorial.  I find that I need to look through my cartridge handbooks a lot when I am deciding what images I want to use.  I found this great video that shows how to download the handbooks to the cartridges that I own from the Provo Craft website.  This video, that I found on the Simple iPad Tips website, shows how you can then add the handbooks to your iPhone or iPad. 

I love the idea of adding the handbooks to my iPhone, as it would be a great way to know which cartridges that I already own, when I am shopping.  Also, once they were downloaded on my laptop, it was really easy to side load them onto my nook.  This has been useful, as now I can plan my next project when I am waiting in line to pick up my son from kindergarten.  It's so easy, since it is all right there together. 

I also want to point everyone to FCCB design team member, Jilliene at Jilliene Designing.  She has a blog post where she had linked almost all of the cartridges, just updated in September 2013.  Using her post, I was able to download almost all of my handbooks really quickly. 

I hope you find this a useful tip and spend some time getting organized.

Happy Crafting!!!
