Cricut Explore Giveaway

A couple of days ago I shared one of my very first Cricut Explore Projects with you…this I Love You a Bushel & a Peck Pillow.  And today, I get to give ONE OF YOU your very own Cricut Explore Machine.


The overall look and design.

You can literally plug and play with your machine right out of the box.  Set up is effortless.  Storage compartments for the Cricut cutting and vinyl tools.  Cutting mat slides under the feet for a nice storage spot.  Quiet…like super quiet!

Cuts Perfectly.

The Cricut Explore cuts with the perfect “kiss cut”.  You just set the dial and cut.  A deep cut blade is available that allows you to cut thin leather and thin sheets of wood.  It will also cut fabric with heat and bond.

Design Space.

Instantly create a project from hundreds (and growing) pre-designed “Make It Now” projects or create your own.  *Design space is an online program so for those of you with limited internet may want to consider that.

Access to images.

The new Design Space library offers access to 50k+ images you can choose to create your projects. Just signing up you’ll have access to over 2300 images for FREE.  Add your existing Cricut cartridges to your Design Space account.

Upload your own files to cut.

I saved the best for last. Finally, Cricut is enabling users to cut their own files. SVGs, PNGs and other cut files, the new Design Space will let you cut whatever your creative heart designs (for the most part). Some of us have been waiting forever to see this come to reality… I know, some of you have no idea what I’m talking about. Trust me, do a little jump for joy and call it a supportive leap of happiness.

    So I see the contest is over??? Who won the Cricut machine??? No one posted anything???

  41. says

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

    However think about if you added some great images
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could
    undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Good blog!

  42. says

    Great items from you, man. I’ve remember your stuff
    previous to and you are just too magnificent.
    I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are
    stating and the way through which you say it.

    You are making it entertaining and you continue to take care of to keep it sensible.
    I cant wait to read much more from you. This is
    actually a tremendous site.
