  • A must have for any crafter

    Love this machine. I use it all the time, so easy. My favorite is the iron on templates, I made custom monthly onesies as gifts for friends baby showers, pillows for the holidays, and monogrammed wine glasses. A popular crafting website can give you tons of ideas. As always overstock was the best price.

    When I first bought this, I thought “who cares about the Bluetooth feature?!” But I have to confess, it has really come in handy! I am not a talented crafty person by nature, but I bought it mainly to make stencils and it works great. Learning how to make intricate stencils (especially with fancy fonts) took some practice, but there are many videos and references I found on the internet to help with this.

    Wasn't sure I was going to be able to use this when I first got it but a few U-tube videos and I was on my way. I've made t shirts, signs, organized my kitchen storage bins, decorated my daughters wedding and even made her invitations. I love this machine and if your crafty it's a must.

  • Cricut Explore Air Delivers Precise Cutting
    Verified Purchase

    This user earned $2.00 in rewards for writing this review.Learn More

    I purchased this machine because I wanted to design wedding invitations for my niece's wedding. I love that I can use my iPad and their software to make designs of my own. There are some limitations, and their software is not compatible with other machines of this caliper. The cricut design suit software is outstanding, if you don't mind a monthly fee. They do offer some freebies monthly. Overall, this machine is incredible.

  • I wish it was so much better
    Verified Purchase

    In concept, a tool that can cut sheets to your size specifications sounds so simple. In reality there are a lot of very cumbersome details. The paper sticks to the mats. This may be unsurprising to those of you who have worked with Cricut mats previously. I had such a difficult time removing the finished paper from the mat. It would either tear or curl in about 20% of instances. Imperfect creases with the creasing tool. The software, oh my gosh, it's awful! It's very difficult to use, does not work with most standard (read: non-Cricut fonts) Cricut fonts and pictures are very expensive. I found that the markers also wrote imperfectly, even during the demo telephone card project that was included. Positives: This is one of the few available items that is capable of printing cuts. I do enjoy this machine having bluetooth as it eliminates the need for my computer to be physical connected. I am not certain if I would purchase this item again, but since I have it I will try to continue to make use of it.

  • Q:

    "Will this cut stencil material and how thick of material? "

    • A:

      This will cut a range of materials from vellum to leather. Unfortunately that is the only info we have.

  • Q:

    "Does it come with the blade?"

    • A:

      Yes, it does.

  • Q:

    "Which one shall I buy cricut explore/mint"

    • A:

      I looked at this when I got it but it went to my daughter and she LOVES LOVES it... I have not used it. She says it does many many things and really enjoying it!

  • Q:

    "What else is needed with this machine, ie, like tools ect?"

    • A:

      Depends on what type of projects you'll be using the machine for. Will you be using it for vinyl? The weeding tool will be useful. Will you be cutting shaped boxes? The scoring tool will be useful. Do you want to write with the machine? It comes with 1 metallic pen. It wouldn't hurt to just purchase the 5 piece kit that they offer and maybe a few pens but just think about what you want to do with the machine most importantly. You'll also need vinyl, paper, fabric and whatever else to do your projects of course. Hope this helps!

    • A:

      You will need the basic tool set, adhesive cutting mats 12x12 or 12x24, vinyl, iron on, or whatever material you will be using, and a pen set to get started.

  • Q:

    "Hello can anyone tell me the difference between the Cricut Eplorer Air and the Cricut Explorer 1 ?? Thank you :-)"

    • A:

      Yes The Explore one has one cutting head that you use to switch our the blade assembly & put in the Cricut pens, The explore has two heads, one for writing & scoring & the other for cutting. If you can afford it get the Explore, but they are basically the same except for having to change the the pe & blade around the machine will tell you when to do this. Almost forgot they print from your printer & then cut what you printed. Some limits on size, but I can manage that! They have just brought out the Explore 2 which is exactly like the 1 except comes in more colors & is supposed to cut faster. I would like that, but until my 1 gives out I will stick with it. I love the thing!!

  • Q:

    "Does the product cut vinyl"

    • A:

      Yes, this can cut vinyl.

  • Q:

    "this ad says it is compatible with a Tablet. Is it also compatible with a laptop? and what version of computer software does it need?"

    • A:

      It is compatible with s laptop mine has Microsoft. You have to register your machine at cricut design studio, they tell you how to do it in the set up instructions. There is no CD software with the machine, it is a web based program so you need Internet. Sometimes the page gets stuck so many times that is frustrating, and i have fast internet at home. Only good thing is that you save your designs there and you can access to them with any other computer as long as you log in to the page with your user name and password. You can use your own fonts and designs as well not need for cartridges.

  • Q:

    "Do you have to have a computer to use this? I see it comes with "software". As in a cd? "

    • A:

      Yes you do. You send the information to the cutter like if you were sending information to a printer

    • A:

      You most definitely must have a computer to use this product
