Cricut Explore Air

Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine

Designing cards, scrapbook pages, ornaments, 3-D displays, etc.

This is why you get a cutting machine . . . to save you time in cutting out your various design pieces.

At one time, I thought the Silhouette Cameo was the best thing . . . then I checked out the Cricut Explore. If it’s about cutting and ease in getting your projects cut out . . . The Cricut Explore may be worth looking at.

There are those who love their Silhouette and those who love their Cricut. It isn’t an easy decision.

I’m leaning towards the Cricut. For me it’s about the cutting. And the ease in creating projects. Some people may really know what they’re doing and want to get involved in the various sizing elements offered by the Silhouette. For me, I prefer simple set-up and accurate cuts.

In my post about Cutting Machines, I featured the Big Shot because it is simple and you get what you get. For a beginner, this may be the way to go. But, if you want to create your own designs, an upgrade is necessary.

Let’s Take A Serious Look At The Cricut Explore

With the Cricut Explore Air you can design and cut wirelessly.

This is a major plus when you craft with friends and also attend craft shows. Or when you’re taking a lunch break while working. Our crafts are very much part of our lives. Any personal time is craft time.

Some people have even created their own games they play on their family game night. The list can go on and on. The only limitation is your own imagination.
