THE SMALLEST SMART CUTTING MACHINE FROM CRICUT
What is Cricut Joy? Well let me tell you!!! Cricut Joy is the newest machine from Cricut. A small compact machine that is so portable and light you can literally use it anywhere! Cricut Joy will help you quickly and easily personalize projects in 15 minutes or less anywhere in your home. Kitchen counter, Coffee table, nightstand… it’s so little you don’t need much space at all! Cricut joy will help you make those practical everyday projects like labeling the pantry, making a quick card on your way out the door, or personalizing a shirt right before the party. Cricut Joy is small but has so much capability and new features and products that have never before been introduced!!!
Do you already have a Cricut Maker or a Cricut Explore Air 2? Cricut Joy opens lots of possibilities with its very unique features like MAT FREE CUTTING!!!!! Yes, you read that right, mat free cutting! Cricut joy has a new product line that has Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl, Cricut Joy Smart Label, Cricut Joy Smart Iron On with the capability and cutting up to 20 feet at one time!!!! Cricut Joy is the perfect companion machine to go with your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2.
Cricut Joy is Cricut’s smallest smart cutting machine ever. Easy to move from room to room as you need to. The new smart system makes it easier to create wherever you are and in whatever size of space you have. Not having to transport a mat around, combined with smaller material sizes, no craft room is needed. Put Cricut Joy on the counter at your command center like pictured above or on a small cart with all your Cricut Joy Smart Materials! I love being able to store and transport it around the house taking up little to no room at all!!
Cricut Joy has a new suite of Smart Materials that require no mat. This means less to buy, less items to store, and quicker results. Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl has the capability to make cuts up to 20 feet long with repeat cut options. This means longer, larger projects without having to switch out the mats!!
Some Cricut Joy materials will still need a mat like the Cricut Joy Infusible Ink sheets. There are mats available for these projects.
One of my very favorite new products that comes with the Cricut Joy is the Cricut Joy Card Mat and Insert Card Sets! I am not a card maker and honestly I hated making cards before. I always wanted to but it took too long. Along with the New Insert Card Sets and Cricut Joy Card Mat, Cricut has created tons of images that are called Quick Corner cards. Simple one step click, cut, insert, and you’re done!! Tons of holidays and occasions are covered and requires less then 5-10 minutes from start to finish. We will be making one of these step by step together today, so I can show you just how easy it really is!!
DIY QUICK CARD WITH CRICUT JOY
* CRICUT JOY AND MATERIALS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE ONLINE AND IN STORES EARLY MARCH 2020
Your Cricut Insert Card Set will have several options for you to choose from and make different combinations. For this project I chose the mint card, Teal insert card with a patterned, copper foil acetate insert.
In Cricut Design space search cartridges for quick corner cards. A variety of choices will come up. Search for the design that says, I love you more than ice cream.
Insert it into your canvas and click make it.
Choose card mat in the drop down box.
Click continue, choose machine and the material type, Insert Card Cardstock.
Click Make it.
Place your card onto the Cricut Joy Card Mat. Remove the adhesive cover off the Cricut Joy Card Mat. Open the card. Lift the clear part of the mat open and slide the back side of the card into it. There is a slight lip at the top so slide you card until it stops to line it up at the top.
Fold the card over and press it down to stick on the adhesive part of the Cricut Joy Card Mat.
Load Cricut Joy Card Mat into the Cricut Joy. You will notice that Cricut Joy does not have a load and unload button. It’s all from your computer or phone now. Cricut Joy has sensors to feed in your mat so slide your mat into the machine and it will pull it in to load it.
THIS PROJECT REQUIRES THE PEN. LOAD THE BLACK PEN THAT CAME WITH YOUR CRICUT JOY INTO THE TOOL HOLDER. FLIP THE TAB REMOVE THE BLADE AND GENTLY SET THE PEN IN AND CLOSE TAB.
Click Go on your computer or phone.
Cricut Joy will then draw all the details.
Cricut Joy will stop and prompt you to replace the pen with the blade.
Cricut Joy will now cut out the design. The cool thing with this new Cricut Joy Card Mat is that it allows you to cut the card while folded in half while protecting the inside.
When the Cricut Joy stops the computer or phone will prompt you to unload.
Slowly peel the front of the card off the adhesive Cricut Joy Card Mat. Remove the card.
Layer your inserts together so the copper foil acetate is on top of the teal insert.
Place the insert on the inside of the card and place all 4 corners in the slits.
And you’re done!!! Isn’t this sooo darling? I seriously could sit around and make card after card with the Cricut Joy Machine!!! It’s so fun and so many possibilities. These are quick and easy and you could easily make these last minute when your running out the door and need a quick card!
The Cricut Joy is such a great machine. If you are new to Cricut and just starting out, wondering which machine would be best for you? The Cricut Joy will not disappoint. Cut all types of materials for all types of projects. A large space is not required as Cricut Joy and the materials and much smaller. Get all your projects done quickly and easily with Cricut Joy.
