Gather your 12x12 Basic White Cardstock. Yes, I think the easiest way to learn to use Simples is stay with all white cardstock.
Grab your Cricut Explore or Maker and a 12x12 light blue mat. Yes the light blue mat is the best choice for paper crafters. PS Here is a discount mat that I have had great luck with!
Download your favorite Simple SVGs and add to Design Space.
Cut-a-bunch! Yes, spend some time and just "cut simples!" I keep my collection in these cases.
