What To Expect With the Cricut Maker

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

I thought the Cricut Maker was mainly for people who sew (not me), but it turns out it has so many features that an avid crafter can enjoy, such as being compatible with the new Knife Blade for thicker materials up to 2.4 mm (sold separately) and being able to cut hundreds of materials, from the most delicate fabric and paper to thicker chipboard and leather. It does everything that my Cricut Explore does, plus SO...MUCH...MORE!

My first impression when I opened the box is how pretty and sleek the machine is. I love the gold color on the top and the clean design. It actually took me a few minutes to figure out how to open it, since there is no longer a button. You just have to lift the lid where the indention is on the front. I also like the dual tool cups and deeper tool tray to hold my accessories.

  1. That tray is really nice and I love the storage on the side of it! Cricut is really up'ing its game! I love the gold and white design of the Circuit itself, too!
