A few weeks back, I wrote about my trip to SLC, Utah, where I had the privilege of attending the launch party for their new product, Cricut Explore. Last week, the Cricut Explore debuted on HSN and SOLD OUT within a really short amount of time. The product will be available at a retail level the second or third week of March, so keep your eyes out for them. Trust me, you’ll want to get this machine. It truly does what they say it does!
I got my machine in the mail last week and couldn’t wait to get started. I finally had some time yesterday to start playing around with Design Space to create unique cut outs and had serious luck. I imported my logo in a .svg file, set it to cut vinyl, and WHAM-BAM in a matter of minutes my laptop had my Sew Caroline logo adorning it. How awesome, right?
Still trying to decide why you should get a Cricut Explore? Thinking, “But I’m a silhouette girl!”… check out this post from Mandi over at Vintage Revivals: Ten Reasons Why I Switched to Team Cricut
What about cartridges? How do you cut your logo and things that aren’t tied to a cartridge? FORGET THE CARTRIDGE! Yep, that’s right. Forget it. You don’t need them any more. The good news? If you have a bunch of cartridges from older models, you can upload them into your Explore and they will be forever saved in the Internet Cloud.
I can’t wait to cut more things with this bad boy. Next up, fabric!
Happy Wednesday, y’all.
