5 Things I Love About My Cricut Explore Air 2

 1. The best thing I love about my Cricut Explore Air 2?  The quality of the products.  Each and every item associated with Cricut is top quality.  The machine itself, the Easy Press 2 line of products, the tools, and materials used for projects, are all high quality.  I would happily recommend them to anyone. The project we did for this adorable mermaid onesie can be found here!

2.  I just love the sheer versatility of the Cricut Explore Air 2.  It can create anything from simple greeting cards to iron on shirts to wall murals.  The projects can be incredibly simple, to mind blowing complex, this machine can handle them all.  It really is an all in one craft machine.   This project we did for my 11 year old daughter can be found here!

3.  I love being able to create on the go.  I can use my Ipad, my laptop, or my Iphone.  Any time I  find myself in a line or waiting for an appointment, I can just get out my phone and work on whatever project I currently have going.  It’s surprising how much you can get done using those empty minutes!

This project is a onesie for my 3 month old daughter and it says 'Mommy's Little Elf". I found it fitting with Christmas being next week!

4.  The huge variety of accessories that are available to support the Cricut Explore Air 2 is awesome!  Every single accessory is designed to help create amazing projects from simple stickers or drawings to complicated murals that go on the wall.  I absolutely love the choices when it comes to papers/vinyl/infusible inks.  There are so many it’s almost impossible to choose.  There are literally more than 100 materials that the Cricut Explore Air can work on.  I can’t wait to try them all!!

For this mug project, the basketball is holographic orange. You can find our project for the basketball mug here!

5.  I love how easy it is to use.  As a first time user I was able to go into my Design Space and browse until I saw a design I liked and wanted to work with.  Watching a couple of tutorial videos by experienced users gave me enough information to get started on my own.  Between the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Cricut  Explore Air 2, I was able to walk right through the project with no trouble at all.
