The little crafter show: Quick how to use your cricut app on your iphone.

I am so in love with the updates for the IPhone. One them is to record what is on your screen so I did a quick video using the cricut app. I then used FilmoraGO app to record my voice & then add it to my you tube channel. With the new iPhone changes you tube also has new app called YT Studio. Using that app allowed me to add my title and description so you know what this video is about.


    So know that you know how I did that. The   video I uploaded is about a quick run though of how to use your cricut design space app on your IPhone. I show where the buttons are and what they do. I will make videos soon using the app again. IPad quick run of the cricut app will be coming soon as well.
