    THIS is the machine I've been dreaming of

    I've owned a few different cutting machines, but each of them have had issues and limitations in some way and there has always been something lacking. In the last few years Ive fallen in love with the customer service and materials and tools that the Cricut company makes, but I wanted a machine were I could use my own fonts and designs. When I heard their new machine would have that capabilities I was thrilled. THEN it came out. Not only am I able to use my own fonts and create my own designs but it does SO much more! It cuts over 50 different materials (yup FIVE-ZERO paper, cardstock, vinyl the normal stuff, PLUS LEATHER, WOOD, METAL, GAH!!!!) The new blade is AMAZING! And it cuts them all EASILY (you will want the deep cut blade for the leather and you will still wear it out faster than you will using paper - WORTH IT). it's super quite, like I didn't know it was running quite. AND the software is easy to use, plug in and go. You don't have to have a degree in design to use it. BUT if you do have that degree you'll be able to create so much more than you ever dreamed. all the premade designs are all online now, no more cartridge, easy to purchase (but if you have some cartridges or have bought older cricut designs they plug in and upload easily). prefer sitting on your couch with your ipad? IT HAS AN APP FOR THAT! seriously. It has two holders so it can cut and write or cut and score at the same time! you don't have to run your material through a second time and HOPE it cuts right. It's super smart and it finds the paper for you (no more wasting paper with it starting to cut before the paper anymore - a problem I had with a different cutter). The software is so smart it aligns your cuts FOR you so you don't waste material, AND has a ton of materials already programmed into the cricut, just turn the knob and go! And of course a custom setting if you want to get creative! If your project has different colors/ layers it's smart enough to tell you which one to cut first! The predesigned projects are amazing and designed by some of the best, with full instructions (for more difficult things like paper roses, seriously amazing) Another smart thing that blows me away? It has preselected "canvas" options. Want to design something for the back pocket of your jeans? choose jeans then your SIZE and it comes up with a pocket size for you to work on. Want to bling out your phone? or your Cricut Explore even (mines getting a "hello my name is" nametag)? a ton of great options to start with, I think the banners and onsies will get a lot of use! This isn't just for crafting, it's a TOOL, and an awesome one at that. I'm still DREAMING up ideas to use her for (yes mine is a her, and she has a name). It's a few machines in ONE and the only difficulty is picking WHAT to make first each day!

    If you are in the market for a cutting machine this is the one you need. It cuts everything from paper to vinyl, from fabric to chipboard all with one click of a dial. No more changing blades! I received my Cricut Explore a few days ago and have been experimenting with the many features. Before receiving it I read and watched many You Tube videos on the wonders of the machine and was skeptical that it really did everything they said. I am so happy to say that it is everything they say and more! I owned the original Cricut with many cartridges and love that the Explore digitally stores all my cartridges. The Cricut Design System allows me to use either the thousands of Cricut files or my own digital files that I already have. It is great fun putting together projects. I mainly do greeting cards and am extremely pleased with the quality of cuts that I am getting on even the most intricate designs. The write and cut function is a great tool. You can design cut and print your card all at once! The options and capabilities of the Explore are endless. It will be the last cutting machine that you will ever need!

    Only draw back is that you cannot use the Explorer offline

    Be patient when you first start with the explore! I wanted to get rid of it when I first used it. There is no manual so make sure you watch videos about the explore. Now that I have played around with it a while. I love it!!! It writes so smooth and cuts just as smooth. A must have for scrapers!

    I love this machine! Right out of the box I started crafting. You can go to Youtube and find many tutorials and project ideas as well. My favorite function of this machine is the ability to upload images from googleand other places. I'm a beginner, from a beginners view point I would say it's user friendly and the machine works great. I hope all who try it will be as happy as I have been. I would like to add that I purchased my machine at Walmart. I paid for standard shipping and received it in 3 business day. The price was much less than other places. I paid 249 most others sold for 299.

    Do you have to use an internet connection for the cricut to work
    by PreachersWife1 5/31/2014

    • A. NO, you do not have to have internet connection if you have the physical cartridges. Internet just makes the process easier because it allows more design options and access to digital images in the Cricut library that you may not have on your personal cartridges.

    • A. Yes. If you've linked them to a Gypsy they will move to the Cricut Craft Room, and the ONLINE program that runs this machine will bring them over to Design Studio for you. You can also use .jpgs. pngs, svgs, and many other designs. The program must be connected to the internet tho. You can go to the Design Studio and see how it works, for free and it remains free if you hook an Explore up and cut with it. You CAN buy a subscription, and you CAN buy their images or projects - IF you do either you can not access these items except thru the program. Also ck out a few Facebook sites with Explore in the title, very helpful!

    • A. Yes, you can use your pre-owned cartridges and link them to the Cricut Design Space to use with the Cricut Explore! You can not use this machine stand-alone, you must be connected to the computer/internet.If you have already linked your cartridges to the Cricut Craft Room they will automatically transfer into the Cricut Design Space.
