What is a Cricut Explore Air 2?
This one is for the Cricut Newbies
If you are like me you need an outlet. You need some personal space. Perhaps it’s a creative hobby that you are searching for. It’s no secret that I just gave birth to my 7th baby a couple of months ago. Some people wonder how I make time for “me time” and I wonder how do moms survive without it?
Ever since childhood, I have been involved in some sort of art. It usually took the form of drawing or painting but later I loved scrap booking and sewing. It was after having baby number four that it dawned on me: taking a few hours a week to rejuvenate myself is a good thing. It’s good for mama and its good for the kiddos and it’s also good for my hubby.
So, I kind of thought I’ve explored it all when it comes to arts and crafts when I found a brand new way to be crafty last Summer. I was checking out the Haven Conference with my blogger sister when I spotted a fun exhibit … Cricut!!! I realized I didn’t really know what a Cricut machine was, so, I immediately signed up for their class and quickly fell in love.
I knew pretty much next to nothing about Cricut before the conference. In fact, I had heard about it a few years ago… it was at playdate with some friends. One of my friend was talking about cutting out shapes using a Cricut machine. It was said as a passing comment and I hadn’t thought more about it than that. I wish I had explored it more back then. I had no idea it could do so much!
Imagine my surprise when I saw the Cricut Explore Air™ machine at the exhibit where I realized how much more it could do. I was astonished to find out it could do so much more than cut paper.
What is a Cricut?
A Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine is a crafters dream. Take a look at what a Cricut can do.
The Cricut Can …
Create shapes and pictures through cutting paper
Cut precise details – think intricate patterns
Create pictures, letters, numbers, and more
Cut vinyl stickers and decals
Create a chalkboard decal
Create the look of frosted glass cut outs and shapes
Be used to decorate outdoor projects
Create handwritten notes and cards
Create coloring pages

Do you know what this means? This craft can cover every facet of my life: from homeschool organization to home decorations, and making stickers for my planner to even my hobby of making clothes for my little girls. Cricut can help with all of that. That’s a lot of stuff that this little machine can do!!!
I love that these newer versions of Cricut come with Bluetooth so that there is no need for cords connecting to your computer or device. It’s so simple.
