Thursday Tutorials : Imagine Tips and Getting to Know Your Imagine

Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday! Ok, we're back on schedule, just a little late. Today I thought it would be helpful for those of us who have the Cricut Imagine to have some basic tips. It's amazing, I've had mine since Christmas and still haven't figured out the main tips and tricks on using it properly and I know a lot of you out there are just like me! So, I've decided to post a few different videos with some easy tips and tricks for us so we can get the most out of our machines.

The first video is from Robyn at My Pink Stamper. In this video she helps us learn how to make sure our layers are all going to be the correct size. It's very simple and very quick. Enjoy!

Next up we have an awesome tutorial, Part 1 in series, from our very own DT member, Rae from Wahoo Crafts Now she may have already posted this previously, but I didn't have time to check that this morning so please forgive me if this has already been done. This is a beginning tutorial that will show you Imagine functions and how to get started with your Imagine. If you don't own an Imagine or if you are just starting with yours, this is a great beginning video on how to use your new machine! She will also walk you through an Imagine cartridge book to show you what you get with your cartridges and how they layer and work. Easy peasy.

Finally, for today, we have a video on how easy it is to actually use the Imagine to print on fabric! I love this idea and can't wait to give it a try. Just remember, after you print onto material and iron the image on to your fabric, you will need some sort of heat set so the image will not wash out in the laundry. There are tips and tricks on You Tube for this in the comments under this particular video which was brought to us today by Tammybowstamper from her own You Tube page.

Hope you enjoy these beginning Tutorials on using your Imagine. As always, we love to hear from you so please leave your comments and your questions. I would also love to hear from our lovely audience, about what you would like to see next. What are you struggling with or what is there that you would like to learn how to do? Give me a shout and I'll see what I can whip up for you for our future tutorials.

Thank you all for joining us today and have a Fantabulous Thursday!

  1. Fabulous tutorials! My expression is still feels 'new' to me, I don't have a gypsy (yet) but would love to learn more tips and tricks in the Craft Room with my E. Thank you for sharing
