Cricut Explore Air 2 Review

I am so excited to play around with my new Cricut Explore Air 2. The Cricut machine cuts paper, card stock, leather, and vinyl. Looking through all the projects is so much fun. The possibilities are endless.

This is where you can change your blade or put a marker. The Cricut can draw and write for you. You can get a deeper cutting blade also. The blade depends on what you are going to cut. For now I will be cutting card stock and vinyl. I am a beginner with this machine.

I have already learned that I need to pay attention to loading it right. Always pick the correct settings too. There is much to learn in the design space as well.

I already know I want to try and make some holiday banners. Eventually work my way up to a leather bracelet.

For now I will play around with simple cuts. Here is my first heart cut out. It is amazing how fast this machine works. I am so impressed. This takes crafting to a whole new level.

I have only used it a few times but know that I love it. I think it was money well spent.

Check out the Cricut website for yourself. There is an even better machine called the Cricut Maker. If I master this machine maybe I will get that one next.

Do you like to make things? What is your favorite craft?


  1. I’ve always wanted my own Cricut!!! This one seems awesome and I love that you can also cut leather and vinyl with it! The possibilities seem endless. How fun!

  2. One of these days I will try a Cricut. I see everyone making awesome things with it!

  3. My youngest loves to do crafts. I know she would love to try it out. I know when they first came out I really really wanted one, but alas I never got around to getting one. Maybe Santa will have it under the tree for her this year.
