Cricut Expression Book Giveaway

Hi everyone, Today's "tool" is the book "Cricut Expression : a comprehensive guide to creating with your machine."

I got the book because I was curious about it. The amazon website describes the book:

In a clear and accessible way, Cathie Rigby teaches the basics of the Cricut Expression machines (both the original and the new Cricut Expression 2) and cutting for beginners. For advanced crafters, this book instructs on features such as modes and functions, and teaches how to create with color, texture, and dimension. A cutting guide teaches the perfect settings to cut every type of material. A separate chapter introduces the new features of Cricut Expression 2 and explains how it differs from the original Expression machine. More than 50 creative projects inspire ideas for home d├ęcor, gifts, parties, cards, and scrapbook layouts.

I found that the book had quite a bit of information for the beginner, novice cricut user but did not really add anything to someone who is an advanced user. It was the kind of book that I wish I had 5 years ago when I got my baby bug. I do have my copy to give away. If you would like a chance to win this book, please leave a comment on this post. I will select a winner on Friday 8/24.

Oh wow, I know that I am advanced too, however I am a gypsy user and I am supposed to teach a friend how to use her cricut that she just purchased. I don't use my cricut without the gypsy and have never used my expression by itself. I was gonna watch youtube videos to teach myself and then her so this would be perfect for my friend! With all that being said I would so dearly love to win it!

Wow! Thank you Cindy for the chance to win such a great book. I have had my Cricut for two years and I am still finding new ways to use the machine. I have yet to use vinyl or glass etching, which I know the Cricut is capable of doing, so this would be great!

Although I've used my Expression for 3 years, I feel sometime like a beginner. I would really like to learn more about using my Cricut. Thank you for your generosity.

Hi- thanks so my h for a chance to win a copy. With no formal cricut training I know this would be an amazing way to sharpen my knowledge!
