I could barely contain my excitement when my brand new purple Cricut Explore arrived.
This machine is simply amazing and I am still not aware of all of its capabilities. When you add this machine to the amazing Close To My Heart cartridges that we have, there’s no telling what we can create.
Some of the things that you can do with this new Cricut are print then cut, this means that you can tell your printer to print something through the Design Space and then your Cricut will cut it. Can we say awesome! Next up is the fact that you can cut any font that is on your computer. Can we say whooohoooo! You can upload your own images to the Design Space and then choose to print and cut them or just cut them.
You don’t have to switch out your blade in order to write or scor because the Cricut Explore can do that at the same time with the two housing capabilities. You can see in my picture that I have a blade installed as well as my scoring tool, which came with my Cricut as part of the deal on HSN.
Now that you know a few of the awesome things that this new machine can do lets talk about how are you going to learn how to make the machine do all of these things. That is where Cara Miller comes into play. I am taking her Cricut Explore class and it is perfect. Cara is teaching me step by step what my new Explore can do her video lessons. The class is only $15 and let me tell you that is a deal when it comes to all the information that is jam packed into this class. So instead of hunting around YouTube and looking for how tos on the Cricut Explore save yourself the hassle and just take Cara’s class. You can grab the class right HERE!
Cara also has tons of other classes and whispers for sale so even if you don’t have an Explore their is probably something that is just perfect for you, pertaining to a Cricut of course. I have used Cara’s whispers for the craft room and for my art philosophy cartridge and let me just tell you this whisper helped me learn how to navigate my cartridge so that I am always getting the right cuts for my Close To My Heart stamps.
P.S. Did you know that the brand new Artfully Sent Cartridge is perfect for card making and for creating your own project life cards. The cartridge comes with 3 large stamp sets and a pack of colonial white paper. This is a great deal and you will love how easily you can create your own cards. You can grab the cartridge HERE.
