Cricut: The Official Blog
Thursday, February 4, 2010

So by now, I'm sure most of you have heard of Above Rubies Studio, and the DVD that they put out, "Cricut A-Z". Well, a couple of weeks ago I had not yet viewed this DVD, but kept hearing about it and wondered what all the fuss was about. When I went to CHA recently, I got to meet Megan Gravener, the Creative Director of Above Rubies Studio. Not only did I get to meet her, but we got to spend some time together and I have to say that she is fantastic - very sweet, down to earth, hard-working, and thoughtful. And fun to hang out with too! I asked her if she would mind if I did a review of her DVD, and not only was she kind enough to give me a copy, but she also gave me a couple of extras to give away as blog candy. Woooohooooo!!!! I love being able to give you guys some free stuff now and then!!! To enter to win, just make sure you're a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post and let me know what you think of my review - or what you think of the DVD if you've seen it. Be sure to leave me your email address or your messageboard name so I can reach you if you win. I'll draw the two winners Monday morning, February 8th, at about 10am pacific time.

I may be the last one in on the secret, but yes, it's true - this is a great DVD!!! I've been teaching Cricut classes for over 2 years now (and a Cricut user since it first came out), and I can't even tell you how many times I've met people who are just taking their Cricut out of the box for the first time. And yet, it's always been impossible for me to have enough time in a class to actually cover everything that somebody needs to know to get the most out of their Cricut. The cool thing is that, because this DVD is soooo comprehensive, it's actually perfect for that just-out-of-the-box Cricuteer, all the way up to the advanced user. It pains me to admit this, but I even learned a few things!

"Cricut A-Z" really does cover everything. There are several different chapters to choose from, or you can just play the whole DVD and soak it all in like I did. But in the beginning, she literally goes through all of the basics like where to plug your cord in, how to turn your machine on, how to change your blade, the dials, functions, modes, creative features, you name it. And I have to say that I love the close-ups!!! The production is fantastic, and it's incredibly helpful to see a perfectly steady close-up when learning how to do such detailed processes.

One of the most frequent comments I used to receive when I taught my basic Cricut 101 classes, was that people were thrilled to finally learn how to use the booklet that comes with each cartridge. Many people had no idea that there were so many extra images on a cartridge that you can't see when just looking at the keypad overlay or even the back of the box. You've gotta make friends with that booklet, and Megan does a great job of showing how that works with close-ups and examples. That right there will make it worth the money if that's something you don't know how to do!!

Besides the basics, which an advanced user still may want to brush up on, there's plenty of meat for us die-hard Cricut addicts. She shows how to do several different "out of the box" Cricut techniques such as making your own stamps and your own Cuttlebug folders with your bug. Plus I personally really enjoyed seeing how to use "Shrinky Dink" material in the Cricut, and then what on earth to do with it next. Very cool - I'm totally going to give that a try! And once your brain is good and full, there's a fabulous Project Gallery section with tons of creative ideas by different designers, along with a "recipe card" to go along with each one so you could easily scraplift and put your new skills to the test.

So, in case you're still wondering what I really thought of this DVD... it's awesome!!!! Rave, rave reviews, 2 thumbs up, encore, flower-tossing, the whole bit. I will be recommending this to all of my clients, and consider it a must-have for every Cricut user!!!!! Now we've just gotta convince Provo Craft to include a copy with every Cricut!!

Be sure to check out the Above Rubies Studio website HERE. Or go directly to THIS page of the website to order your DVD. Btw, they will soon be coming out with a Gypsy A-Z DVD. OMG, how COOL is that????? I'll be first in line to get it!!

Thanks, Monique, again for your honest commentary. It is so appreciated. I just ordered this DVD because, as you said, I have no idea how to really use my Cricut to its full potential and don't know how to use the books that come with the cartridges. I would still love to win one of these DVD's because I co-chair a scrapbooking fundraiser each year for my son's Cub Scout Pack and have a number of fellow Cricuteers who would just love this. We are all fairly new to the Cricut and could use a little help with our creativity. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and for the blog candy.

Wish I were in CA with you, not just because of your great classes, but we will be weathering a big winter storm this weekend out my way. I hope I can get to a big crop I signed up for on Saturday morning!!!! Thank God for All Wheel Drive (AWD). Let's hope it stand up to its name!!!

Thanks for the detailed review...now I want to get this even more!

ShawnfromMN said...

Thank you for the review. I have been using my cricut for years and i thought i "knew it all". Okay not really but i didnt think a video would help me - your review made that decision much easier. I would love the opportunity to win this DVD as i am on a purchasing freeze till all those new cartridges start coming out!!!! LOL

I'm so glad you meet Megan G. I don't have this DVD but would like to have it. Just like others I barely use my "2" cricut I have. Why? Because I don't know all that it can do. I waste so much paper by trying which depth, speed and ect. I need the input. The Cricut didn't come with much directions. Any I hope I win. i'm still trying to win one.

Monique, are you going to be a Ruby's designer? That will be awesome. I do too like Megan's hard work and drive. I do not own one but will love to, so wish me luck.

Thank you so much for the review! I have been looking for something comprehensive like this to learn more about my Cricut, I get so frustrated at times. I will most certainly buy one as soon as I save up the money, unless I win one on Monday of course!!!
Thanks again,

wow that was a glowing review, makes me want the DVD even more! My 11 yr old DD would benefit greatly from this DVD, she got a Create for Christmas (I didn't share my E very well) and I'm sure I could learn a thing of 2 from the DVD as well. I have my fingers crossed!
Thanks

oh boy, I received a cricuit expression for Christmas and still haven't taken it out of the box because I have NO idea what to do with it, or how it works. My husband purchased it for me as a gift, a gift of which I didn't ask for which is why it's still in the box, lol. He meant well and I love him for it, but really how do I work this thing???? I would love a CD like this!

The Cricut A-Z DVD is worth every penny and more! It is the most comprehensive Cricut tutorial on the market. A must have for any beginner or advanced Cricut user!

Thanks for the chance to win. The DVD sounds great. I would also like the Gyspy one! I agree that Provo Craft needs to include this in the box. We needed to be better educated when we bought the machine to use it in the best ways possible!
Thanks again

You are right , I told Provo Craft the same thing, I can't wait to get on the Gypsy. I pruchased the equipment and did not use it because I could not figure out how to get it to cut. I did not know about all of the adjustments. I was using it like a sewing machine and thought that it probably had been set at teh factory . I kept trying papers and found one it would cut. By that time you can imagine how frustrated that I was . It was not until I discovered the instructions on You tube that I learned how to use my machine. Pam littledott1943@gmail.com

Sandra King said...

I would love to win this DVD. I am still new to the cricut and any help I can get is always appreciated.

Tammy said...

This is a great review! I just ordered my copy yesterday. I have heard of this video for a while and I should have bought it then. The closest Cricut class in 1hour away and only at certain times. Once a month but if you miss the beginner classes than they don't let you take advanced until you go through beginners. It's $40 a class as well. I just bought the only Cricut class I will ever need by the sounds of it. Thank you My e-mail is swisher_tammy@yahoo.com

Kristie said...

Hi, just came over from Above Rubies Studio to read your review. Great job! and it looks like I will need to be following another blog. Gotta go check out the rest of your blog! Thanks!

LorraineB said...

I have the DVD and it's everything you say it is and more. No doubts about what to do or how to do it. This DVD tells you exactly how to use the cricut clearly. They should package this DVD with every Cricut they sell! They would be providing a huge service to their customers.
