In the last couple of weeks, my Cricut’s been working over time as I’ve made wedding tags, wedding banners, decorations, vinyl crafts for friends and stencils for an event. You probably do a lot those same kinds of things, and that’s why you’re here. 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. Any questions? Leave me a comment! I’ve got a couple more posts with additional info coming your way, so stay tuned.
