My Introduction to Crafting with Cricut

I consider myself pretty crafty!  If you were to head into my office you would find bins of paint, glue, construction paper, and goggly eyes.  If a crafty project arises I usually have what we need to make it. I have been eyeing the Cricut machines for a while so to say that I was excited to start a partnership with Cricut would be a HUGE understatement.  Before my on-boarding package even arrived Shaun and I were daydreaming projects that we were going to do.

If I am being totally honest after I unboxed my Cricut Maker 2 and Easy Press I was a little nervous to get started.  We have all seen beautiful crafts that people have made, and I had no clue where to get started.  There are so many options, and I had so many ideas.

The best (and most comforting) thing about the Cricut is they send their machines with a craft to get you started.  After set up I made this beautiful paper card and it was so incredibly easy! In under 30 minutes I was able to set up my machine and create this card that used 3 different papers and the handwriting tool!

The Easy Press was just as simple!  I ironed on my first piece and am now able to carry my easy press in style any time I want!

If you know me at all you know that my first project had to incorporate a unicorn somehow!  I was excited to use some beautiful sparkly silver vinyl to give my water bottle new life!

I am so excited to show you some of the super fun projects that Shaun and I have in mind.  We will show you just how easy it is to get creating with Cricut! We have also created a Cricut highlight on our Instagram where we will be sharing step by step instructions on some of our upcoming projects!
