Just recently I purchased the Circut Explore Air from Joanne's and I must admit that I am already in LOVE with it! This thing is awesome! It will cut, score, and write! Not to mention that it cuts tons of different materials! I have only used it a few times, but I have made 4 pretty awesome, if I do say so myself, mother's day cards!
This was the first card I made, well the first Mother's Day Card, the Cricut came with the paper to make a card as soon as it was hooked up! This came straight out of the Cricut Design Space, all I had to do was load in the paper and hit go! Easy as Pie!
This card was the next one. The background design was available in Design Space, but the purple was a design I already had online! As I said before, this Cricut will cut AND write, so I chose to have it write "Happy Mother's Day" instead of having to glue each letter down separately.
I made both of these cards tonight- both of these also came straight from the Design Space, but I also customized a quote for the inside!
I can't wait to do so much more with this awesome machine! I have already thought of about 100000 ways to use it in my classroom next year! If you do a lot of crafting, scrapbooking, or even just want to save money on cards for EVERY occasion, I HIGHLY recommend getting one :)
