10 Best Things About the Cricut Explore

Is the Cricut Explore on your wish list? I wanted to share with you some of the things that I’ve been loving about my Cricut Explore. This post is sponsored by Cricut and some links may be affiliate, but as always, thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Cricut Explore Bundles
1– The Cricut can CUT and WRITE and SCORE (which is just amazing when making boxes or envelopes)…the fold lines are already there for you! Like on these DIY paper milk cartons.

2– The SmartSet Dial. You don’t have to worry about figuring out the blade depth or speed. Set it to the Custom to choose from the whole list of materials available in Design Space.

3– There are mats of various stickiness so you can peel cuts off without them tearing because the mat’s too sticky, or thick materials like leather won’t slip around.

4– Upload jpgs, svgs, pngs and cut for FREE. Read this post about how to upload images to Design Space

5– Compatible with cartridges, but cartridges are not necessary.

6– Precise cuts, even when they’re teeny tiny. Like these Christmas treat boxes.

7– It cuts balsa wood! Remember when I made these hedgehogs cut from balsa wood?

8– Use all of your system fonts, even fonts that you download. Learn how to use your own fonts in Design Space.

9– Cricut Access – over 75,000 images and fonts. Learn all about Cricut Access here.

10–Print then Cut ANY image in Cricut Design Space—even your own!

AND an exciting BONUS reason…the iPad Cricut Design Space app! Design on the go, save it to cut later or use Bluetooth to send it right to your machine.
