Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad

A lot of you know that I have made videos about Cricut Design Space and share them on my YouTube channel. Did you know that Cricut Design Space looks very different when you are on the computer versus when you use it on an iPad or phone.

Most of the same features and functions are there, but where you find them is very different. This can confuse a lot of Cricut users. Can you image trying to learn how to weld letters together, and the only tutorial you can find is for the computer version of Cricut Design Space? That would be like trying to learn to drive a stick shift with the directions for driving an automatic!

That is exactly why I created the Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad Handbook!  This connects to all of my Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad videos on YouTube.

You asked and I listened!

Many people asked me if could do Teach Me Design Space for iPad videos. So in February I purchased an iPad so that I could begin that process.

More than just videos!

Instead of just doing videos, I also created an entire Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad document. This way you get an organized resource that includes screen shots, images, descriptions and links to videos so you can find what you need.

Originally, my plan was to sell this Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad document for $5 per copy, to pay for my time to create it and make all of the videos that go along with it. With everything that is going on in the world today, and so many people being out of work, I just could not bring myself to ask people to pay for this.  You can now download my full Teach Me Cricut Design Space for iPad document from the Classes area here on my site.

I go through each and every button and show you what it does. Then I include a link to a short video for each button or function so you can see the steps come together.

  1. Shawn, I really enjoyed your videos. I even recorded 2/12 hours of them. I have some questions that I really don’t understand why certain things are or are not happening. This last August I bought a new circuit Joy
    I then downloaded the design space app from the App Store. This was done in about two days time period. With a lot of difficulty I finally got the two to connect. About the same time I bought a brand new apple
    Pro iPad. So, with everything new, I figured I was good to go.WRONG! I was able to make three cards. But not now! I do not want to join access as I feel at this time I’ve spent enough money on something that is not working. Here’s my problem,
    When looking at the tools icons, such as images, I can’t find where to find the filters section that I need to sort out the free images. I can’t find in the same area the icon for projects. I’ve viewed some other
    Videos that show the tools arrangement and mine seem to be missing the icons.
    It would seem to me Cricut would be more transparent that the iPad Cricut design for iPad is different in the laptop or destroy top version.
    I know I’m a male and stupid but very frustrated. Can you please help me find the missing icons, and tools I need to make cards
    Thank you for your time and trouble
