Meet my new Best Creative Friend the Cricut Explore Air 2

The Cricut Explore Air2 has taken my Creativity to a whole ‘notha level!!! Prior to receiving my Cricut I had never used a Cricut, but had seen several others creating amazing items for all occasions with it. After watching a demo I knew I had to have one. The creative possibilities are endless with my new best friend.

When I removed the Cricut from the box it was love at first sight! Everything about learning how to use the Cricut flowed with ease and grace. The videos in the Design Space guided me step by step through the process of setting up each aspect of my new machine. Once you set up your new account and gain access to the Cricut Design Space, you can go to Machine Settings and select New Machine Setup, then you will be guided to get your machine setup including setting up your bluetooth connection. One of the features that has me wildly in love is the ability to use bluetooth and the Design Space on my Desktop or even my iPad as I sit on the couch, I can design new projects and just send the project to print on my Cricut.

My first project after I ripped open the box, was to decorate my machine so it reflected my personality. I selected my image from the Design Space, followed the directions and prompts on my screen and the Cricut did the rest. The Design Space is very intuitive, prompts you step by step what you need in terms of material type and suggests the setting for your material dial for precision cutting. The types of materials you can use with your Cricut is open and endless from vinyl to leather your creativity will run wild. Imagine your next birthday party or special occasion, you can create your own creative personalized invitations, favors and even custom t-shirts all from the Design Space and your Cricut Explore Air.

Here is what I did to decorate my Cricut as my very first creative project…

I printed the image on my computer, loaded the Adhesive Cutting Matt with the image attached then, allowed the Cricut to cut the intricate details with accurate precision. The Adhesive Cutting Matt has a slightly sticky coating to allow your paper or material to stay in place while the precision cutting occurs.

Look at the level of detail the Cricut can accomplish!!! Once all the detailed cutting was done, I peeled away the paper backing to expose the adhesive on the back of the vinyl and placed the finished design on my Cricut machine. Easy, Peasy! I love my newly decorated Cricut machine!! Just imagine what you can created when you order and receive your Cricut Explore Air. Life will never be the same when you get your hands on the Cricut Explore Air! You can create decorative invitations, t-shirts, pillows, mugs, glasses and the list goes on and on! If you need new ideas for new projects, simply search through the thousands and thousands of ideas and projects in the Design Space.

I just wanted to take the time to introduce you to my new best friend, my Cricut Explore Air. I invite you follow me on my Cricut Creative Journey! I want you to see why I am so excited and share what is possible for you to create with ease, with the Cricut Explore Air.
