:: Cricut Sale :: Want to kick your hobby into high gear or are you making your Christmas list? Here is a gift that all crafters and creative people I know would love to get: a dye cut machine. And anyone who’s into crafting and making pretty things for the home, desk and already knows what this wonderful gadget |creative work horse can do for them, wonders what is best: Buy a Cricut Explore or a Silhouette Cameo? A recent study found Cricut Explore to be the winner (e.g. because it cuts better). But I also want to answer that question in more detail today as part of this affiliate review and extend you a great offer by Cricut.
Here are 10 great benefits and reasons to buying a Cricut :
Summary: It comes down to more functionality for a great price. Some of the more expensive (necessary) ‘extras’ for the Silhouette Cameo are included with the Cricut Explore/Cricut Design Space.
Circuit lets you make polished DIY projects easily. And, I have great deal for you below, making it a super easy and wonderful choice to get one today.
1. Cricut lets you use any font for free. All the fonts on your computer can be cut on your machine. If you are a font lover (all Cricut/Silhouette crafters are), then this is an important feature.
2. Ditto with images. You can upload and cut your own images. In the Silhouette, you’ll need to pay an additional $50 for an upgrade to the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to do so.
3. What is practical and economical is hat you can link old Cricut cartridges that you already own with Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space.
4. It’s super-easy and super-fast to adjust the machine for the type of material you are using. Just set the smart dial to the type of material you are using, and you can immediately start cutting.
5. The user interface (UI) is really easy to use and intuitive. Means: you get your projects done faster.
6. Cricut Explore has ‘Make it Now’ projects allows you to take advantage of already well- thought-out creative project plans and just make ‘m without any further ado.
7. The Cricut Explore includes a carrying case. This means you can take your machine with you to where you need it. Trust me, it’s worth having to protect and transport your machine (see benefit 10.). In contrast, the Silhouette Cameo carrying case costs about $80.
8. The Cricut Explore is ease to tidy up with 3 built-in compartments to store your tools. There’s even a magnet for blades, meaning: it’s safer too.
9. Some dye cutters are rather noisy, but the Cricut Explore is quiet.
10. Here is the BENEFIT I am most excited about: the WIRELESS BLUETOOTH addition to the Cricut Explore Machine. The wireless bluetooth kit is going to revolutionize your creative work. First of all, no more wires cluttering your workspace.
Second, it is going to expand your horizon and make your Cricut mobile. Rather than the Cricut Explore being a standalone machine on your table, this kit will hook you up with all of the ‘Make it Now’- projects and all of the Cricut software available that will be stored and accessible to you in the cloud (i.e. on the internet). As will your own projects stored for you in the cloud. You will be able to access your Cricut Explore machine from up to 8 different devices! You can and will be a creative soul on-the-go… (NOW YOU SEE WHAT I mean with a carrying case being ‘handy’! )
