Yes! That is right! We are joining together with Cricut to give one of you a Cricut | Explore™!
This makes me feel really happy because I know that someone is going to be getting an awesome cutting machine! And who doesn’t like making people happy?
This is the perfect time as we start into the biggest Holiday Season of the year. Just in time to make all those Holiday Crafts, Decorations and Gifts!
I shared with you in an earlier post how I made the transition to aCricut | Explore™. It was an 8 long month decision for me as I experimented with the Cricut Explore AND the Silhouette Cameo machine. Both are great machines, but overall, I felt like I could ultimately do more with better results with the Cricut Explore. If you are interested in how I made the switch, you can read more about that here: The New Cricut Explore.
Here are my TOP reasons for loving the Cricut | Explore™
1. The Cricut Explore cuts VERY precisely! Even if you need to go back and make multiple cuts (ie. cutting leather or thicker paper products) you get an exact re-cut! Just push the GO button again and it cuts your material exactly the same. This can save lots of money in un-wasted product.
2. The Cricut is so easy to set up and get started using right away. You literally pull it out of the box and plug it in. Download the software and you are good to go.
3. The software is truly so easy to use. Even those with little to no computer experience will be able to quickly learn how to use the Cricut Explore.
4. No guessing on the blade depth to use. Simply turn the easy dial to the product you are cutting and it gives you the perfect cut each time…and if by chance it doesn’t, simply hit the green GO button again and you will get a perfect re-cut.
5. The blades are fantastic and last for a very long time after MULTIPLE cuts.
6. The are an AMAZING amount of materials that you can cut with your Explore. Think thin leather and really thin sheet metal, fabric and so much more with their deep cut blade.
7. You can upload your own jpeg and svg files into the Design Space and cut them out on your Explore! I use this feature all of the time!
8. You can use your own personal fonts and access them in the Design Space! LOVE!!
9. The Explore has space for a blade AND a marker, so you can cut AND write AT THE SAME TIME!
10. The newly released Cut & Print feature is awesome!
The Cricut Team is always looking for new and innovative ways to use their machine and I know we will continue to see great new innovative uses for the machine.
