  1. I’m having the same issue!!!! I’ve been working on my monogram and watching how to videos for 8 hours plus!!!! I got my Cricut for Christmas and I’m sooooo Frustrated because I can’t use it without a laptop or computer!

    • Hi Melissa, I’m so sorry you are frustrated. The Cricut app is a great tool, but it can be tricky figuring out example how to make it work for different project types, especially more advanced projects. Without seeing the project, it’s difficult for me to troubleshoot specifically. Let’s chat.

  2. I can’t figure out how to weld a monogram together on my iPad. The weld feature is grey where I can’t use it. I’m new so any help please

    • Hi Alisa, I am sorry you are having some issues. Are the letters overlapping? All elements to be welded need to be touching so they can connect to one another. You might need to try attaching them first. Keep me posted and we’ll work this out!
