Click make it now to cut at the dimensions it is currently 2×3. If you would like to change anything or adjust the size click customize first. When you go to make it make sure that the mirror image is turned on. Use the Cricut Maker to cut out some gold, foil, iron-on. Weed out the negative pieces. Insert a small craft block into the bag. This will give you a hard flat surface to attach your saying to. Using the Cricut EasyPress, Adhere the Iron-on to the bag. It’s that simple!!!

I’ve had this issue while trying to weed really intricate projects.  It can be very hard to see exactly what your looking at! Especially if your anything like me and your crafting time tends to happen mostly at night. This is the biggest reason I am so stoked about the new Cricut Brightpad! Read on to see my review.

CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2 VS. SILHOUETTE CAMEO 3

CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2 VS. SILHOUETTE CAMEO 3

*This is a sponsored post.

CRICUT  VS. SILHOUETTE

Are you team Cricut or team Silhouette? I’m sure you’ve heard of at least one or both of these cutting machines. These 2 brands are the top electronic cutting machines out right now. The Cricut Explore Air 2 is the latest model that Cricut offers. The Silhouette Cameo 3 is the latest version that Silhouette offers. Both machines are extremely brilliant. The abilities of both machines are great, but I would like to get down and dirty and talk about what the differences are!! A little background about my history with electronic cutting machines. For years I have been familiar with the Cricut machine company. The only machine I used to have was a Cricut Cake!! It was a super fun machine that would allow you to cut gumpaste into amazing shapes that are food safe and can be used on cakes and other food. This machine required cartridges and I have about 9, most of them being the cake edition cartridges. I had so much fun for years creating images and words to add to my cakes. The one downfall that it had was that the cartridges were kinda expensive and you would have to buy a whole cartridge just to get one little image of a car or something. I used the Cricut Cake a few times to convert it into a paper cutting machine.It worked pretty good with the deep cut blade, but at this point it was still like a guessing game trying to place the images on the mat with the keyboard that was on the machine itself! I mainly kept it strictly for cakes and never ventured much into the paper crafting world.  Last year I decided I needed to get the new Cricut Explore Air 2. My friend had gotten one and I had seen all the fun things she was able to create right at home! I got my machine in the super cute mint green color, since that’s my favorite color how could I resist!! When I set up the machine it was very straight forward. I followed all the set up instructions and was able to make simple cuts right away! The software was extremely easy to use and easy to navigate. I already loved my machine right away. 6 months after having my Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine, I started talking with some other friends, I found out that they loved the Silhouette machine! I didn’t know much about this machine but they were raving about it! They loved the software and all the new features it had. 1 friend had been a former Cricut machine user and the other has only been straight silhouette. I wanted to have the best machine there was so I needed to see for myself the differences of the two!

I have been hearing many people asking,”Will I use the Cricut Machine enough to justify the price?” the answer is absolutely YES!!!!! Having the Cricut has made so many gifts and parties possible that i never would have done other wise!! Having the ability to create custom items at the drop of a hat is so fun!!

It makes it easy when you need something quick and you avoid the hassle of having to get it out of the box and all set up every time you want to use it!! I have used the Cricut so many times in the last year that it honestly paid for itself in the first month!! Not to mention that I have had so much fun using it !! I love Design space and how simple it is to use! Having the Make it now projects is also such a perk! The Cricut team has taken out the guess work and created them all for you to be able to make a quick project!! In my opinion the Cricut Machine is 100% worth the investment. I love mine so much.

I needed some baby shower gifts and I really wanted to make something that was personalized. I searched, baby, on Cricut Design Space. This is the program that you use to make projects with your Cricut machine. I found this darling, Make it Now project for a binky clip!! This was the perfect project for my gifts! I love all the Cricut Faux Leather which is what was used in the project so I was excited. Have you ever tried using a Cricut machine before? If you haven’t you may not know what a “make it now” project is. These are projects that the Cricut team have already put together for you to make! Your next question may be..Will it be easy for me to use the Cricut software to create Make it Now projects? The answer is YES!!!! The Cricut team has done all the hard work for you and has made it so simple and easy! They have provided you with a description of the project, list of materials needed, and instructions on how to do the project!! It’s so awesome and it even provides the difficulty level and time it will take for the project. I made the Make it Now binky clip and then used the base to make 2 other binky clips. I have shared the tutorials for those also!
