Cricut Explore Air 2 Creativity

Cricut Explore One

Happy Mother’s Day crafters!!! If you’re new to the wonderful world of crafting – or even if you consider yourself to be a “basic” crafter – then Cricut’s brand new machine is just perfect for you! This nifty new machine is called the Cricut Explore Air 2 and it’s perfect for crafting beginners and basic crafters because if offers a simplified design-and-cut system that is incredibly user-friendly! The Cricut Explore Air 2 actually offers most of the same features as the other cricut machines, it just costs less! 

The Cricut was actually the first crafting tool I ever bought, and I never looked back!
Here a a few of the great projects I’ve made using my Cricut Explore:

I’ve used it to cut out stencils that could later be painted onto fabric, or clothing!

Painted Baby Onesie

I cut leather pieces that I formed into accessories, like this Leather Heart Headband :)

I cut vinyl to create artwork for my home, like this Gold Heart Art :)

I cut every card and decoration using the Cricut to create the perfect Puppy Birthday Party!

And of course… I cut many, many scrapbooking overlays, words, and accessories using my Close to My Heart cartridges on the Cricut!
