Creative Projects are Easy with the Cricut Explore Air 2 Design Space

Getting started with your creative projects is so easy with the Cricut Explore Air 2. Let’s dive right in, so I can show you just how easy it is to create a cute T-shirt for the spring and summer.

Simply turn on your Cricut Explore Air 2 and open your Cricut Design Space, select in top left corner a blue box with a ” + sign and Create New Project” or you can select from the existing categories of project on the right side of the screen. Each box contains projects and instructions to create so many amazing creative ideas. If you can think it, it is so easy to create with step by step instructions and guidance from beginning to end.

If you want to create your own project like I did all you have to do is select your canvas from one of the images listed in the “Set Canvas” area. You can easily scroll until you find the canvas to suit your project.

Today I am going to share with you The Palm Trees are Calling project!! I was so excited to see this image available in the Design Space. I discovered this image searching for Palm Trees symbolizing my relocation to Florida. I selected “Insert Images” at the top of the navigation options. I searched via the search box for Palm Trees.

I scrolled until I found the image I wanted. I had a choice of free images that come automatically with the Design Space and additional premium images. The one I selected was a premium image which was only $1.99 for my project. I love love love the this image. All I had to do is select (see the check mark), then insert image into the project.

Once you insert your image on the canvas of your choice you can move it around resize it and see how larger you want to image to be. You are ready to start cutting your design to later iron on your t-shirt.

Select Iron On Transfer – I selected Cricut Iron On “Glitter Black Gold on a Golden Rod T-shirt…

Using the Cricut Weeder I was able to quickly separate the cutout image and the areas of the iron what wasn’t part of the design. Once excess iron on material is removed from the image

Once my image has been weeded by the weeder I am ready to iron my image to my t-shirt. Place your iron on transfer positioned where you want it glossy side up. The transfer material is designed to withstand the high heat of an iron or an heat press…

Viola all done!! I decided to cut the neck out of my t-shirt and tie knots on the sleeves just to add a funky touch!! This has become my theme shirt for my relocation to Florida!! The Palm Trees are Calling and I Must Go!! Everything I needed for this project was already a part of the design space. Only thing I needed was the Glitter Iron On and my Cricut Weeder. In record time you can create anything your can imagine. The possibilities are endless with ease.

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.

Stay tuned for my next project!! @OfficialCricut #CricutMade

Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese

Creamy-Vegan-Cheese
A Healthy Alternative to Dairy Cheese…Today I made my own version of Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese. You can create your base and then garnish it with any seasoning or herbs you love!! I fell in love with Vegan Cheese a few months ago when I had a sampling at a local Herb Shop’s fermented food class!  Let this recipe serve as the base for the endless flavors available for you to try!!  It is the easiest thing to make once you pre-soak your Raw Cashews.  I like to soak my Raw Cashews at least 12 – 24 hours to ensure a creamy consistency. After soaking the cashews I drop everything into my Vitamix and blend everything together. Pour into a dish, cover and let the cheese thicken and chill!  While you are waiting for your cheese to thicken and chill, cut up your favorite veggies and you are ready for the best dipping experience.  DELICIOUS!!!  Get out calendar so you can plan to make this amazing recipe…
