I have the Mickey Font cartridge with the basic characters. At first, I used just the fonts. Then one day, my daughter wanted a Goofy for a project she was making for a friend. After a few minutes of looking at the little book in the cartridge box, we figured it out. Very easy. I also remember watching Youtube videos about using the extra features to create the characters. You could probably search for some. I don't know how to link stuff.
Anyways, if I can figure it out, anyone can. And the characters turn out so cute!
the bigger you can cut them the better! I have the Create and anywhere from 4 to 6 inches is easier, but some of the small pieces, like eyes, toungs etc, are still small.
But, it's easy since the base part (suggested to cut in black) has little lines on where to place the pices. Hope you get one and have some fun! Disney is my 3rd fave thing to scrapbook, after my son and then Christmas.
I have the cars cart - I bought it because it was on sale and I thought it would be ok to make something fun. Like Dayna said - try to keep it bigger - it gets harder the smaller you try to cut. But it is super easy once you do a few.
I was at a crop recently where a woman was learning to use the Cricut while using a Disney cartridge with lots and lots of layers. She never swears, but by the end of the day, she was dropping f-bombs right and left To her credit, though, she didn't give up, and she was having a great time. Her layouts were beautiful, too.
I just finished cutting and putting together 15 of the Disney Cars--they have lots of parts. I used my Xyron and for the tiny pieces I stick them in the Xyron with a tweezers. Think I will be getting rid of the Cars cartridge--too hard to cut unless they are big.
