If you’re like me , chances are, you’re one of those people… you know the creative type. We craft, we live to our creative potential, and share we share our unique abilities and creations with others. It’s people like us that Cricut created their line of personal electronic cutting machines.
I got my first Cricut machine back in 2008. It was heaven sent. I can count how many projects I made on that machines. But I’ll let you in on a secret, I have been a bit naive. You see I thought I was one of the original Cricut users. Boy was I wrong. This week I found out that Cricut has actually been in business for over 50 years. WOW! That’s 50 years of developing tools that inspire creativity in people.
It well known that I’m very particular about the things I buy. I expect high quality in my tools and my projects. So I’m happy to be one of the millions of people who use Cricut’s award-winning products to create beautiful, inventive, and personal projects.
But there are still people out there who have not have the privilege to experience a Cricut. So, what is Cricut? Circut is a family of electronic cutting machines that make it possible for you to easily create amazing do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. The cool thing about Cricut’s machines is that they handle the tedious part of crafting… the cutting. For example, could you imagine hand cutting over 50 tutu shaped invitations? I couldn’t, which is why I used my Cricut machine for that job.
The two machines that Cricut offers are:
- the Cricut Explore One™ – allows you to cut
- the Cricut Explore Air™ – allows you to cut and write wirelessly
I’m currently using the original Cricut Explore with Cricut Design Space™, it’s a cloud-based software that works seamlessly with the Cricut Explore® family of machines. Design Space gives me access to all of my images and projects right from my computer or iPad, so I can design just about anything, anytime, and anywhere. Once I upload my designs (or use the pre-designed images) to my Cricut Explore, I can sit back and watch it magically bring my design to life.
There are so many interesting things you can make and do with Cricut – check out some of my Cricut crafts in the Project Gallery. But before I overwhelm you with my Cricut chatter (I honestly could talk about my Cricut all day), it’s best to go over and check out the machines for yourself. Then come back and tell me which machine you would love to have.
Until next time,
