  1. Who/What is Cricut
  2. How the Cricut machines work
  3. What the Cricut Design Space is and how it works
  4. Materials that Cricut machines can cut
  5. Creative ways to use Cricut machines

The more I learn about Cricut, the more I want to own one of these beautiful machines! To be able to easily cut felt for my amigurumi projects using this machine sounds like a dream come true! To make both eyes or other features exactly the same size will add a professional edge to my finished projects 🙂 I can’t wait until I finally own one of these myself!

If you’re reading this post, chances are, you’re a creative type.

You like to craft, explore your creativity, and share your creations with others.

And it’s for people like you that Cricut created their line of personal electronic cutting machines.

A little known fact about Cricut is that they’ve actually been in business for over 50 years, and their primary purpose has been to develop tools that inspire creativity in people.

Today, millions of people use Cricut’s award-winning products to create beautiful, inventive, and personal projects.

So, what is Cricut?

Cricut is actually a family of electronic cutting machines that make it possible for you to easily create amazing do-it-yourself (DIY) projects.

Well, not totally DIY because Cricut’s incredible machine’s do a LOT of the heavy lifting.

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

To give you loads of creative freedom and versatility, Cricut developed the Cricut Design Space™, a cloud-based software that works seamlessly with the Cricut Explore® family of machines.

Design Space gives you access to all of your images and projects from any compatible computer or iPad, so you can design just about anything, anytime, and anywhere.

Once you’ve uploaded your design (or pre-designed image) to your Cricut Explore cutting machine, you can sit back and watch it magically bring your design to life.

There are so many interesting things you can make and do with Cricut.

Next week, I will share a post to introduce you to each of Cricut’s machines; what they do, and how they are different.

Until then … happy crafting!

  1. I’ve seen them before and wondered about them, and a few weeks ago I won a craft box with a circuit cartridge or two among the goodies… I guess it’s time to look into these.
