I say quick, but it was actually a week long trip! Awhile back, Cricut contacted me to see if I wanted to come out to UT for the reveal of their newest product. I said heck yeah! I flew out with about a hundred other bloggers and businesses to see the new Cricut Explore in person. I feel blessed and honored beyond measure that I was able to be part of it. It was really exciting!
Now, it may seem like I have ulterior motives while I spit stuff out trying to get you pumped for this new product from Cricut. Yeah, they flew me out and took really good care of me, but there's something you need to know. Cricut worked their tails off to provide a new product for the DIY community. They have extensively researched how they could make this a product that people really want to use. Not just to sit on a shelf and one day use, but actually use it. The company focused on three key words, which is the summation of the Cricut Explore.
EASY. PRECISE. VERSATILE.
Y'all. It's easy to use. Very little buttons. There's a few steps to getting around on the computer portion, but it's really not that difficult. They tried really hard to make things easier for the user because who wants to craft when it's hard? Seriously. Um, four buttons and one dial. Simple.
It's precise. You can get fine tips, delicate curves, and cut as small as a 1/4".
It's versatile. It works with your old Cricut, meaning you can download all your cartridge images onto the new Cricut! It's wireless, so you have the ability to work on it from you iPad. It's quiet. Like you can craft next to your sleeping baby quiet. You can use the same cutting blade for all sorts of mediums. What can be used on silk can then be used on cork board. They also include a storage tote, which is never mentioned on the package! It's a nice a little surprise.
So here's a little info:
-Individual images- starting at .99 cents.
-No commitment; cancel anytime; monthly or yearly subscriptions
-Access to 25,000 images and 200 fonts - $99.99
-There's free access to play around, so you are not committed to buying something you think you may like.
-If you create a project using their images but then cancel, you still keep your project!
-You can design your own images to cut!
-SVG files are supported
-The machine can score, cut, and ink at the same time!
This machine will be available mid-March and retails for $299. You will find Cricut Explore at Amazon, Jo-Ann, Michael's, and Walmart.com.
