If you know me personally or have been around a while, you’ll know that I LOVE to flex my creativity. I’ve coveted a Cricut machine since they first came out, and when I finally got my Cricut Maker last year – well, it was love at first cut!
The Cricut Maker is truly a must have sidekick for any crafter or wannabe-crafter, and here’s why:
Top 5 things I love about my Cricut Maker
1. You don’t need a degree in graphic design
I am pretty well versed in the Adobe Creative Suite, but when it comes to design, I just don’t have it. The great thing about owning a Cricut is it comes with Design Space, a companion program and app that works with the cutting machines. Use Design Space to browse thousands of free and paid images, ready-to-make projects, and fonts from the Cricut Library. You can also design your very own project from scratch! Did I mention it’s free?
2. It’s amazingly versatile
I have yet to find a project that this workhorse can’t manage. It handles fabrics, leather, paper, and balsa wood with effortless precision. Cuts sewing patterns in just a few clicks. And places more creative possibilities than ever at your fingertips. Did I mention the Cricut Maker can quickly and accurately cut over 300 different types of materials? Infusible ink is my current personal fave! Check out this list of 6 Creative Cricut Projects to Make at Home.
3. You can personalize anything
Having four kids should speak for itself on this one. Everything needs a label, always! My kids all have pretty traditional names, so finding labels has never been an issue for us, but growing up with a brother named Shayne, I know that’s not the case for everyone! I love that you can truly personalize anything with the Cricut Maker, and easily too!
4. It’s space-saving with amazing storage options
Not only is the Cricut Maker super sleek, it has great storage! Quick access storage cups on the side of the machine ensure that my weeding tools and pens are always close at hand. The fold-down front panel also has a hidden storage compartment there. It’s the perfect place to hide all of your new cutting tools from your spouse! (kidding) And if that’s not enough, you can also purchase the Machine Tool Organizer as a sidekick to your machine. With little fingers everywhere, having a safe housing for the sharp tools is a must-have!
5. There’s an app for that
Ok, so I know I touched on this one already, but this is up there as one of my absolute favourite parts about the Cricut Maker. Cricut Design Space has a fully functioning App that allows you to create all of your favourite personalized designs right from the palm of your hand, anywhere you are! The Cricut Maker has Bluetooth functionality as well so when your design is done, send it virtually to your machine to finish up!
So there you have it! The top 5 things I love about my Cricut Maker. And believe me I could have gone on! I don’t want to go so far as to say owning a Cricut Maker has been life-changing, but it sure has taken my craft game up a level!
