If you’ve been following my blog for a bit, I’m sure you’re well aware by now that I am Cricut obsessed. I recently upgraded my machine to the Cricut Maker, so I thought I would take some time to introduce you to it and go over some of the differences between it and my Cricut Explore.
If you don’t know what a Cricut machine is, you are seriously missing out. They are writing, scoring and personal cutting machines that work with a wide variety of materials. I’m talking everything from paper, vinyl, adhesive foil, craft foam, iron-on transfers, window cling and more. In the past, I’ve made everything from iron-on shirts and pillows, gift cards, customized wine glasses, decanters, mugs, coasters, party banners and more. The crafting-possibilities really are endless with a Cricut machine. (Basically it’s magic.)
The Cricut Maker kicks things up a notch by introducing a rotary blade and an xacto knife blade. These new blades allows the Cricut Maker to cut fabric, chipboard, leather, kraft board, felt and corrugated cardboard.
