This book is not really worth the information, even for a beginner. There is a picture on each page and reference to which cartridge is used. The instructions on the page does not describe how to make the "cuts" needed to make the card or how you would put them together or even glueing the pieces. The book would be confusing to a new user. And, is way below the intermediate or higher level of Cricut users.
I would not recemmend this book.
If you need ideas on what to do with your Cricut and make cards this book explains to you the step by step instructions on how to make some simple cards. Thankfully I have many carts to choose from, so using this book was helpful for me!
