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

Let me start by saying that this is a sponsored post. But, I did not anticipate how much I would love working with Cricut and being able to create things so easily and with so much fun.

I have a very creative mind, but sometimes my applications fall short. I often, and very easily, get frustrated. So to say that I love creating with my Cricut Explore Air 2 says a LOT!

As such, don’t think that you can’t. You might not be able to do everything at first, but using the Cricut Design Space, you can learn to do so many things!

Here are 5 reasons why I adore my Explore Air 2 and EasyPress 2. 

Customized Gifts With My Cricut Explore Air 2

My favorite gifts to give are ones that are personalized. However, sometimes you pay a premium to have something personalized or customized.

I can create customized t-shirts, bags, pillows, coasters, greeting cards, candles, cups, and SO… MUCH… MORE! Even my gift tags can be personalized!

Whether you’re using your Explore Air 2 to cut or to write, it really helps add that personalized touch without much effort.

So Many Ideas In One Cricut Space!

For anyone new to Cricut, the Cricut Design Space can be overwhelming. But, spend some time in there and you’ll find more project ideas that you have supplies for.

There are Ready-to-Make projects which are perfect for beginners because they have the supply lists, tips and tricks, and step-by-step instructions for a wide variety of projects.

They also have contributions from others in the Cricut community and, when you’ve created your own project or template, you can share your creation, as well.

Why Cricut Design Space is perfect for new users

Cricut Explore Air 2 Can Save You Money

I can’t successfully count the number of times I’ve seen something adorable on Etsy or Pinterest and thought “I could make that if I had X and Y.”

I’m a bit stingy when it comes to spending money on things for myself. But, there’s so many creative people making amazing things now. 

With my Cricut Explore Air 2, my EasyPress 2, and the HUGE variety of supplies that Cricut has available, I can create many of the things that I see. Often, with my own flair added to the project.

DIY Coasters with Cricut Explore Air 2

One such project was this set of Misheard Song Lyrics coasters I made after seeing a similar idea on Etsy. Those were listed for over $50! I made them for just a few bucks.

A Large Variety Of Media To Cut

Permanent vinyl, iron-on, Infusible Ink, removable vinyl, adhesive foil, leather, felt… I could go on. But, if you’ve even considered purchasing a Cricut cutting machine like the Explore Air 2, you already know the options.

The Cricut Explore Air 2 can cut and write up to 2X faster than previous Cricut Explore models, and cuts more than 100 materials — everything from card stock, vinyl and iron-on to specialty materials like glitter paper, cork, and bonded fabric. From personalized cards to custom T-shirts to home decor, Explore Air 2 makes it easy to realize your creative vision.

Use the Cricut Design Space on the go on your laptop, iPad or iPhone. Browse and play with thousands of images, fonts, and ready-to-make projects.

Promote Your Business For A Fraction of the Cost

Besides creating items for my friends and family, we’ve been able to use Cricut to promote our business, as well!

My husband and I own an auto detailing company in our hometown. We can use our Cricut Explore Air 2 and our EasyPress 2 to create shirts and jackets with our logo, vinyl windshield stickers with our contact information, wall decals with our logo, menu boards, and more!
