What is a Cricut Machine used for? Good Question!
You can use the Cricut Machine Explore Air 2 to make just about anything for your kitchen or home decor. Here are a few ideas from the Cricut Design Studio. Create an adorable Luau Tray, design labels for canisters, or personalize your linen napkins. This can all be done, and much more, with a Cricut Machine Explore Air 2.
I am so excited to finally purchase my new Cricut! I have been looking at these for a long time. This is the one I finally bought.
I got my Cricut Machine from Amazon on their Prime Day. Apparently a lot of women bought their Cricut that day because I have seen them in the support rooms saying they needed help to get started.
It was a bit daunting to finally have this arrive at your home and not know where to begin. I just dived in and created a monogram for my Cricut, just to practice and then I did an iron on transfer for a tote. It turned out great. Now I am looking for new things to create.
The Cricut can cut, write, and score different materials. Paper, vinyl, card stock, iron on transfers. The ideas are limitless.
I have made a card with paper where the Cricut cut out an intricate pattern and wrote a message at the same time. It’s really pretty awesome.
I plan on making some personalized pillows for my beds and some dish towels with funny kitchen sayings on them.

Where Can I Buy a Cricut?
I knew you would want a Cricut once you saw the video. You can find the new Cricuts at any craft store, Cricut.com, and at Amazon. I researched them all and actually purchased an older Cricut from a woman locally. Once I looked into it more, it was much better to buy the new Cricut. Here’s why…
The older Cricuts used something called a cartridge. The cartridges held the designs, so every time you wanted a different font or design, you had to change cartridges. My local craft store didn’t carry the cartridges any more. That’s when I started wondering how expensive this was going to get. I came home and check Amazon for the cartridges. They were all over $30 and most of the good ones were $50.
Did I really want to have to start buying cartridges when all this was on the Cricut Design Studio? No. I decided I didn’t. So I bought the NEW Cricut and I love it! You get to use their fonts, their designs, or you can upload your own.
I have found hundreds of videos on YouTube that will help you with any project you decide to take on. I am having so much fun and I can’t wait to show you everything I have made for my kitchen with my new Cricut Machine Explore Air 2.
Right now Cricut is offering $50 off if you buy soon. I am not sure how much longer that will be a good sale.
Whats the Difference Between the Cricut Versions?
Good question! There are 3 versions out now that Cricut says is still a really good value. Some do more than others, but you need this information in order to decide which one is best for you. Check this out…
I know these cutting machines aren’t cheap. I really thought this purchase over for a long time. But I kept seeing things in the store and online that I knew I could make much better if I had the right tool. So I took the dive and used my points from one of my credit cards. That saved me over $100 alone. I am so glad I made this purchase. There is a learning curve, but it is so much fun learning.
If you decide to join the Cricut family, let me know and we can design together!
