if you love DIY’s, this giveaway is for you! this week you can win the cricut explore air, a seriously awesome machine that Michaels and Cricut created for cutting out designs for just about any project — and i’ve become completely obsessed. we spent an entire afternoon in the studio creating designs and printing them in all sorts of materials (even leather!). no more tracing and exacto knifing designs, this thing is the real deal.

it’s super simple to use. you just send your designs from illustrator on your computer to the cricut. and in just a few seconds, they’re printed. it’s amazing to watch the machine cut your designs out so quickly.

here’s how it works: plug it into your computer, choose from their gallery of previously created shapes or upload your own designs from illustrator. grab your sticky mat, attach your material of choice to the mat and then send the file to the cricut and it will cut out the shape. eject it and simply peel off the shape.

anything you can imagine, you can create with the cricut. it’s actually harder to think of what to create than to actually create it! the only limitations are size because the shape has to fit into 12″ x 24″, but you can always attach separate pieces to make it bigger.

it definitely got my mind spinning on what i can create and how i can use the machine more. i wrote some words with my own handwriting (like the one above!) and printed it out. so cool!

    I have been dying for a Cricut! I would use it to make a majority of the paper flowers for two sets up upcoming nuptials, both of which are using paper and fabric flowers!

    One of the best things i ever saw it! whit Cricut explore air, i will not stop it doing many many creative works;)

    Kati says:

    Oh my gosh, I would love a cricut. I’d decorate my classroom with it. My decorations are all homemade, which is fine, but these would class the place up a little bit!

    well now, i sort of didn’t know the capabilities of such a product, so now i feel like i could go mad creatively with this. i would definitely apply this to blog posts, background sets, promotion of product lines on my blog and expressions of just plain ol’ everyday feelings on my blog as well. really super!

    Erica J says:

    Oooh!! I would turn lots of my hand lettering designs into cutouts for wall art for a more tactile experience

    *gasp* I was just saying, not even 24 hours ago, how I am in desparate need (read: just really really want) a Cricut machine! I could do so many amazing things with it. I’m thinking maybe some home decor or how about a photo project? The possibilities are endless!!!

    Love this! I’d use for the annual holiday cards I send to friends and family. I’d create Xmas holiday ornaments to hang form the Xmas tree or on windows. I’d also create cure and special valentines for my kids and friends and Easter ornaments. I also think it’d be really cool to do halloween ornaments or cards or treats with it!

    Ashley says:

    I am a RA next year, so I would totally use this all the time this summer as I make door decs for next fall. It would save my hand from cutting out 75 of each shape. My first door dec is probably going to be a cute little acorn.

    Mary says:

    I would love to use this for making art and signage for the school I work at! I do all the hand-lettering for our signs throughout the school announcing events, meetings, projects, etc. This would make the work POP and grab the kids’ attention!

    Anna says:

    This is pretty much the coolest thing ever! I work for a stationary company and we use a huge acu-cut machine and this thing is way cooler. I am a ceramic artist and I would love to use it to make custom tags for all of my pieces as well as display items for my market booths.

    Kate says:

    Such an amazing DIY machine! I work at Thimblepress, so I would use this baby to create fun shapes and sayings for our store front window display AND for social media photos with our products.

    Amy says:

    I would love to use this to make some wall art at home! I can just imagine making a decorative mural with cutouts! I would also love to create some quotes in my handwriting to use in some art.

    I am in a handful of weddings this summer and next and have been asked to help with some fun creative elements for them, I can picture photobooth cut outs of mustaches, lips, and fun phrases like you’ve shown above..but also some personal projects, maybe some simple framed cut-outs. The possibilities are endless!

    April says:

    I would love to use this for my disney travel agent business. Would be fun to make countdowns and send out to customers!

    This is amazing!! I have been wanting something like this to create original artwork for my new condo. Would be so happy to own one! 🙂

    sina says:

    this better not be an april fools joke- cause I am WAAAY too excited about this for it not to be!

    I am looking for ways to make new wall art- and I have been looking at the cricut for help!

    Erin says:

    I want to make party decorations for my daughter’s first birthday and to use it to make screen prints for fabric and furniture….maybe even the back porch “rug”, so many ideas!

    Amber says:

    Oh man, I would be creating vinyl decals like nobody’s business! Also, I’ve done a few photobooths and I would use it to cut out words/props/backgrounds/etc. This thing would open so many creative doors for me, the possibilities are endless!

    Melissa says:

    This would be amazing to own! My scrapbooking skills would reach next level! Plus I would use it for various other paper goods.

    Linda Sung says:

    I would die for this. I’ve been playing around with my lettering/calligraphy more so it’d be amazing to make those come to life.

    Sam says:

    I would use mine to create stencils for sewing projects to map out how to add embroidery or beading to my garments!

    Kayleen says:

    Great giveaway! Having recently purchased my first “fixer” home, it’s lacking in personality. I would use the Cricut in a heartbeat to get some art on the walls. It would also be a fantastic way to make invites for a housewarming party!

    Carlotta says:

    I would love to win. I’d start by making some lovely spring decorations.

    Kristy says:

    I’m a graphic designer and could really benefit from this tool in SO many ways! A lot of the self-promotion projects we do need to be hand cut in-house because of budget. The Cricut would be a savior!!

    The cricut would be perfect for all the DIY aspects of my wedding and for decorating our new home. What an amazing tool!

    Blaire says:

    Wedding invitations!

    Kristi says:

    I am hosting an “All Hands on Deck” 30th Birthday party for my husband on our new deck in a few months. It’s going to be nautical themed and a circuit would be so amazing to have while making maritime flag buntings!

    I’ll be planning my wedding coming up soon and I’d love a cricut to ad some unique and fun touches to the reception!

    Adrienne Tregre says:

    I’m throwing my mom a surprise 60th birthday party this summer and would use it to add some fun decor.

    Emily says:

    The Cricut is super cool, but a bit out of my price range at the moment. Eventually I want to create pieces that can go in kits for my shop Print (Em) Shop. Helping people create easy artwork would be a dream and with a Cricut I could get it done.

    Emily says:

    I could use this with the illustrations I draw!

    Alexandra S. says:

    I love the idea of being able to cut leather. I might make jewelry, or maybe headbands for my daughter.

    Jessica says:

    This would help so much in making wall art to finish decorating my apartment!

    Susanna Merrick says:

    I work for a Children’s and mothers homeless shelter (non-profit) here in NYC. I host an activities class from 10-12:30pm for kids in shelter each Sunday, while mom’s can run errands and have a little time to themselves we do fun activities. this would bring my events to a whole new level and the kids would love it! our budget it tight but we make the most of it for sure!

    Kate says:

    This is way too cool! I have so many things in mind.. from custom invitations, to banners/bunting, to collage making. I need this now!

    Keely says:

    Oh pick me!! I would love a cricut to really enhance my mixed media art. It would be awesome to be able to use this in my art to make pretty flowers, patterns and cool shapes. I also really like it for printing out words. I use a lot of scrapbook paper in my art. I usually cut out things by hand, but this would be such a handy tool to create some fun shapes to incorporate into my art! I love creating bright, fun, whimsical art, which you can check out at this link http://kaleidoscopekanvas-kk.blogspot.com/p/my-art.html. Fingers crossed! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    Colleen says:

    LOVE! Would love to make party decor, home decor and craft projects with my son!

    Miranda says:

    I’ve always wanted a Cricut! Especially if it cuts leather. I love to combine beautifully printed fabrics with leather to create different textures in pocket books, book covers, & wallets and being able to use the Cricut would allow for much more creativity. Also being able to cut out the petals for paper flowers would be so much quicker with the Cricut.

    Courtney says:

    I’d use this to create shapes to make faux wallpaper in my rented apartment since painting and wall paper aren’t an option. And after that, I’d use it on all kinds of things!

    Hollie says:

    Would love to cut out gold paper for calligraphy, and stickers for my Etsy shop! Ohh the possibilities!

    Rebecca says:

    2 words- paper flowers!

    natalie says:

    EVERY SINGLE pin or photo I’ve saved on my computer, in anticipation of a theme party would be complete with a new cricut. No more sad, unrealized paper visions!

    Jme says:

    A sweet little baby boy’s birthday party!

    OMG I would die if I won this! I would most likely cut out a TON of my handlettering designs and make a huge gallery wall out of them, or some sort of hanging mobile backdrop displaying all of them!
    The amount of greeting card ideas is endless and ongoing as well. What a cool product!

    Peyton says:

    WOW I would use this for multiple garland projects, mood boards, and collages on collages on collages–a dream!

    Rachel says:

    Oh wow, it would be so awesome to finally have a Cricut! I’m working on a bunting banner and cupcake toppers for a baby shower right now and a Cricut would make it so much easier than all the hand cutting I’m doing!

    Amanda says:

    If I had a Cricut, I will finally follow my dreams to make my own handmade greeting card company!

    Mariah Best says:

    I have been wanting one of these forever! I am an art student focusing in graphic design and I would use this all the time for my projects!

    Stephanie says:

    Oh my, how I adore this machine! I’ve been planning my next Pup-Up dog photo event and would so love to have some fantastic props and garland backdrops for my pup portraits. The dogs may not appreciate as much and me or the owners do, but it would really make those slobbery smiles shine! I’m sure of it. Fingers/paws crossed!

    Erin A. says:

    I would create some cute cutouts to put in frames for our bathroom and guestroom!

    Allison says:

    I’m pretty sure I would just want to throw a party every day if I had one of these. I would love to make a floral garland or lots of little mobiles. This is very exciting!

    OHH THIS IS LITERALLY OXYGEN TO ME! 🙂
    i can finally create and design my NEW 2 CUTEST BABY BORN NEPHEWS photo albums exactly like i imagined. DREAMY! well actually… 4 of them (for the 2 big ones too)! this is HEAVEN!

    TRACY says:

    CONFESSION: I AM SO NOT CRAFTY BUT MY SISTER HOWEVER IS. AND SHE HAS BEEN WAITING A CRICUT FOREVER. IF I WON I WOULD DEFINITELY GIVE IT TO HER. IT WOULD MAKE HER SO HAPPY AND I AM SURE SHE WOULD USE IT IN HER CONTINUING PURSUIT TO TURN ME INTO A DIY QUEEN LIKE SHE IS.

    Ashley says:

    Oh My! This is so exciting! 🙂 I would use it for diy blog projects! The possibilities are endless! Paper flowers, greeting cards,fancy text just because! I would so use it for party props for many events I plan! Fingers crossed!!!

    Katie says:

    This is amazing! I’ve been meaning to be a better pen-pal with my friends who live far away, but I can never seem to find the right card… maybe I could make one of my own 🙂

    Jennifer says:

    Oh my! I have always wanted a Cricut! I would definitely use it for quirky wall art, photo booth props for my mini Netflix binging parties, and all my mail art projects 🙂

    Paola says:

    I would love to have the circuit to make the save the dates for my wedding! 🙂

    Vel says:

    I so definitely need this! I can’t wait to make signs and symbols for decorations for my daughter’s nursery!

    Carissa Ghaffari says:

    As a graphic designer and calligrapher, there are hundreds of projects that I’ve wanted to make if I had a Cricut.

    But the number-one thing I would do is to make graphic silhouettes of my and my husband’s wedding vows to frame for my gallery wall! And next, I make typographic banners for all my friends to hang in their houses.

    Pascale says:

    Amazing! I would create words and phrases and mount them on foam core for a 3D effect and hang them on the wall…also…a Flava Flav type clock to hang around my neck (I just can’t resist)

    Jae says:

    I would use this ALL the time! First project: make everything for my sister’s wedding (thinking custom confetti and papel picado flags to start) and then I would make stuff for all the festivities leading up… We are throwing her bachelorette party in Palm Springs and I could use this to make the best props for our photo booth!

    Ryan Miranda says:

    I’ve always loved styling shoots! And I’ve dreamt of one day creating fun and custom backdrops for weddings, birthday parties, or just portrait sessions. This would be such a huge plus to start that dream! It would be especially helpful for my best friends wedding in a couple months. I can already imagine all the pattern and hand lettering combinations I can create 😀

    I would create a fashion stop-motion film!!

    Let me explain: I just created a short film on Vine. By cutting out the model with my own pair of scissors: https://vine.co/v/OLEE7UxVaQq
    It took me ages, and my cuts are so unprecise..
    But imagine how many more frames and details it could have with Cricut to then create a full fashion stop-motion film instead of a 4 second vine? 🙂

    We could even brainstorm the story together, I’m up for anything fun, especially when its about pushing the boundaries of creativity further!

    Cheers from London!

    Courtney says:

    I’ve been dying for one! Is love to use it (as shown) for my wedding photobooth. In addition, I’d love I use it to grow my blog!

    Oh no… Got a tad too excited. I’m not based in the US 🙁

    Cristal says:

    I would use this to make artwork!

    Corinne says:

    i would totally use this to make props for the photobooth at our wedding this summer, it’s 50’s hair salon themed (complete with a vintage hair drying chair) and I’d make cut outs of giant cat eye glasses and beehives!

    Kate says:

    I would LOVE to have a Cricut. I would make so many things… paper garlands, cut out art prints, invitations. Then when you open up the ball game to leather and thin wood, I would never stop making.

    Erin says:

    Every year I make advent calendars for friends and family! In the past I’ve had access to a laser cutter, but I’ve been eyeing a cricut ever since last winter so I’d have my own fast and easy way to cut things out.

    Clare says:

    Seriously? Everyone I know would get birthday ‘cards’ that were just the message printed out, cricut style.

    Lindsey Bishop says:

    All of my DIY projects would be amplified by about 5000 degrees with a cricut. Snazzy labels for my homemade body butter, felt flowers for my wedding table centerpieces next spring, professional looking signs for the big day would also be easy and less stressful with my cricut. I would love to make custom packaging for the gemstone bracelets and knitwear that I often gift to friends and family. I usually just collage something or wrap in some reused colorful images I have lying around, but with a cricut I could layer images with interesting cutouts creating a quick but amazing effect with different textures or images popping through. Yeah! I love cricut!

    Melissa says:

    What an awesome giveaway! A cricut would be super useful for so many of the projects I’m working on for my August 2015 wedding. My fiancé and I love to throw parties, and I would definetly use this to make some awesome party decorations post-wedding.

    Mary says:

    I have so many ideas on how to use the Cricut Air for celebrations- everything from invitations, to cupcake toppers, to fun garlands and table decor- the possibilities are so endless! It would really up my blog game and I am just starting out 🙂 Thanks for offering this giveaway, Bri! I’m so excited and hope I end up getting to play with a Cricut!

    Janet says:

    This machine is amazing! I’d go crazy with fabric pieces to make quilts. Specifically want to re-make a cat appliqué quilt I made 40 years ago…..oh the things we could do together!!!

    Alicia says:

    Getting married and I’d love to do some fun things to have at the wedding. Fingers Crossed!–Alicia

    Xanthe says:

    OMG! I would go bonkers with this. I love it. I would cut out letters to write words, and then make cards – I would create my own stationary. I would re-use the letters to make collages, and then on top of those personal creative outlets, I would use it for yard sales and community service projects, making bulletin boards at the library 🙂

    Maureen says:

    The possibilities are endless! First up … prom decorations! And then party decorations and then graduation decorations and then 4th of July and then … you get the idea!!!

    Johanna says:

    My themed parties would be NEXT LEVEL. Derby party is next, so crazy HATS.

    Lauren says:

    My wedding is coming up in July – i would use the Cricut to make fun designs for our makeshift photobooth!

    I would love to make snowflake cutouts for Christmas and hang them all over my house…. too soon to be thinking of Christmas? I think not.

    Alex says:

    I love to host parties. I can see myself using this machine to create the cutest decor. Also, can we talk about making your own cards and invitations? Yes please!

    Marci D. says:

    My sister has a cricket and I’m totally jealous! The possibilities are endless but I love *borrowing* hers to make party banners…would love to have one for myself!

    Jenn says:

    I recently got married, so I would use the Cricut to help me put together a scrap book of the whole wedding experience!

    Ah! I’d love to win this! We have a photography business and I’d make props for shoots!

    Jennifer says:

    “Words” for my son’s communion party coming up!

    Vinyl decals would be super cute for the camper I’m renovating. Vintage caravan cutouts for the win!

    beka says:

    i would use my cricut to make cutouts to use for my son’s 1st birthday party cake topper!

    MFree says:

    Definitely party favors and invites. Thanks!

    Julie says:

    So many possibilities! I would probably make a ton of 3D wall art pieces with it!

    Patricia says:

    I’m graphic designer so probably I would use the circut explore air for a lot of projects, it occurs to me a composition with cuts, photograph and use the picture for a poster with a big and beautiful typography on! That’s my first idea!

    I’m graphic designer so probably I would use the circut explore air for a lot of projects, it occurs to me a composition with cuts, photograph and use the picture for a poster with a big and beautiful typography on! That’s my first idea!

    Violeta says:

    Wow! I am an adult and I love this wonderful machine. Currently,hundreds of ideas are flowing though my head so… Can you imagine leaving the circuit in the hands of children?
    My goal is to be able to share the circuit with the kids I am working with. I would be fantastic for those children to watch their creations and drawings become reality.

    Sophie says:

    It’s like magic!

    What a great giveaway! I’m obsessed with decals and this would be perfect to make my own.

    Kerry says:

    I’ve been dreaming about buying a Cricut for soooo long! I have about a million project ideas — vinyl decals, iron-on t-shirts. Oh, the possibilities are endless…

    Skylar says:

    I have a birthday coming up and would LOVE to create some great pieces for the buffet and the table. Maybe cut out everyone’s names for place cards!

    Brianna says:

    I have a two year old and many a themed birthday party in her future. Last year we did a donut breakfast and hand cut tiny donuts. This weekend it’s a fruit theme and my printer wasn’t liking the cardstock I tried to put in it. This machine would be pretty handy!

    DJV says:

    Awwww! if it even cuts leather you make anything from coasters to rad one of a kind jewelry !

    Svetlana says:

    This is so cool! I would make an intricate birthday card design. So many possibilities!

    wow- this is AMAZING. I’d love to make fun greeting cards with this!

    Naomi says:

    I would love, love, love the cricut explore air! I am currently a Graphic Design student with a double major in Painting and Printmaking, I’ve been trying to push my boundaries with my body of work by exploring spacial dimensions within the reoccuring themes of my work! I would love the cricut to help cut designs for future installations and for cutting canvas pieces I can put atop of my painting without the stress of having to measure each piece pricisely.
    An example of an installation I did (using an xacto knife to stencil):

    An example of I painting I did using cut canvas pieces to bring the painting to life: http://instagram.com/p/0PHdvZCxij/

    Thank you!

    theresa rubio says:

    I have been dying for a cricut.I love all of the projects it can do! I know I would use it for banners, cupcake toppers, and photo backdrops for lots of cute memories made with my toddlers.

    Marla says:

    I have been eyeing one of these for ages! I’m a furniture design student and would love to be able to cut out miniature furniture prototypes that can fit together with just slots – they would look so cool and really help me flesh out my ideas before I move to wood!

    Sam says:

    OMG My brain is exploding with ideas!!!
    I’m obsessed with font and different font styles! So I would cut out words! Words! Words! I also send snail mail to so I would include all my cute cut out words in my snail. I have had my eye on this machine for a while and would love love love love one 🙂

    June says:

    I NEED I NEED!!

    Jasmin says:

    The endless possibilities I could do with a Cricut!!! Def would use it for invitations!!!!

    Kady says:

    I have so many images and ideas I could create with a circuit. I’ve been experimenting with hand-lettering and I’ve been thinking about somehow making a wall sticker for my bathroom hand-lettered that says “Get Naked”.

    Isabel says:

    Mmm… My brother’s birthday is coming. He is a young graphical designer. I would love to print some of his best sketches. They would be printed on some kind of iron-on fabric. Thereby he could customised his clothes and accessories with his own creations!! And, why not? I will customised mine too! Written by a proud sister 😉

    Amy W says:

    So many design ideas!! Hosting a couple b-day parties coming up and this would be perfect for invitations and decorations! 🙂

    ann says:

    This is amazing! I’d make so many papercut art pieces with this…

    Whit says:

    I’d probably break this baby in with some Nic Cage face silhouettes! This machine would make amazing stencils for greeting cards. And then I’d definitely make some paper dolls.

    Adrienne says:

    The Cricut would be perfect to use to help create a beautiful baby book for my son who is no longer with us. I would also like to use it for invites for my husband’s 30th birthday. (He loves movies, so ticket-shaped invites would be neat.)

    Claire says:

    Being a design student, and I can think of no less than 1,000 things I would use this magical machine for! All of the beautiful paper for use in my physical portfolio and various projects, decals and vinyl for packaging projects, fabric and leather for all of my soft goods projects…the possibilities are endless. Not to mention all of the lovely things I would make for my DIY-self when my projects are complete! Phew, I’m dizzy just thinking about it.

    Rose says:

    This looks like so much fun! I assist a totally amazing makeup artist and we’ve been doing body painting lately, playing around with colors, textures and shapes. We make stencils and paint on the body and even use some of the cutout shapes and build 3-D masks. This would be such a great tool to use! How totally inspiring, seems like the possibilities are endless 😀

    Sharon says:

    Garden art and pot decorations, for starters!

    Angie says:

    This is amazing! I’d love to turn my hand lettering projects into something fancy, maybe using some gold foil paper 🙂

    Denna says:

    I always dream up idea’s for improving my blog, it is hard to get better at blogging and really stand out.
    I would actually cut out product names in the most fun fronts and use them as photographic background for my blog. Also making fun shapes would really make my pictures something special.
    Also I think I would cut out motivational quotes to hang on my wall, or even stick on my cloths if I use iron on fabric.

    And perhaps the most fun thing I would do with it, I would cut out of wood, plastic & leather some nice jewelry designs and make my own to give away to friends and family. And perhaps keep some for myself. Or even dream up my own business, that would be amazing.

    Shannon says:

    Currently planning a 30th surprise party at the Derby and this would help make some amazing photo booth props.

    Mint julep anyone?!

    Jennifer says:

    This is a print designers dream!! This would be a huge help now that I’m setting up my home studio to freelance! I love that you could even do leather!! Etsy !! SOCIETY SIX printed collages! #Hello Those glitter words are beautiful by the way!! <3

    Erin says:

    This would be really amazing to add any designers’ tool kit. Being in school for design, I basically live in Adobe Illustrator. I would use the Cricut to cut out pieces for the paper illustrations I make. It would make my life so much easier! I usually have to spend hours cutting them out with an exacto knife and changing the blade every 10 minutes

    Katelyn says:

    The Cricut looks like such an amazing tool for any creative! I would love to use it for party decorations and backdrops. The possibilities are endless!

    Sarah says:

    What wouldn’t I use it for. Embellishments for scrapbooking or diy cards. Party decor. Art. Etc Etc. This is a great giveaway thankyou!

    Caitlin says:

    This is such an amazing tool! I coordinate Parks & Rec programs (just call me Leslie Knope!) and I would use the Cricut to spruce up our program decorations, signage, etc.

    Nikki says:

    I’d like to make custom stickers/decals for various things around my home!

    Amanda says:

    Oh my gosh this is so awesome! I would looooove to use this to make photo props and party decorations! Cutting things with an exacto knife is so tiring and hurts my hand ahah.
    <3 Those glitter words though.. I'd have to make some of my own! I got total heart eyes going on over here <3 xx

    Ann says:

    I’m a graphic designer and this would open up a whole new medium to me to create ads with paper cut outs and and graphic cut outs with combined with photography. I love the uses you show in your post. As always your blog is inspiring!

    Sara says:

    I work with students who have special needs, so to be able to make a couple sets of letters for the alphabet in a tough, durable material would be amazing.

    Champa says:

    I’m a designer that recently moved to the big apple to chase my design dreams. However, in pursuit of my dreams I had to leave behind my cute nieces and nephews. Every month I craft out cards to send them because I miss them so much. With that, I would use the circuit to help me create even more beautiful cards to send to them. Thanks for listening! Always a big fan of the blog!

    Allison says:

    I’d love to have a circuit to make fun cake toppers!

    Lindsey says:

    I’d cut out wall decals to make my own wallpaper!

    Cori says:

    The possibilities are endless. First and foremost, I would I design print quotes and I think it would be fun to print them out and pass them out to strangers #UnselfishSelfies ?

    Gwyneth says:

    Scrapbooking! Aka, as a savior for my janky cutting skills.

    Alice says:

    This is amazing, the perfect tool to bring all sort of things to life!!! I think I would start with pop-up cards!!

    roni says:

    i would love to print some quotes for my kids’ rooms!

    Geri Zakharia says:

    I would love this! Most recently, this would have come in handy when I made my daughter’s birthday invitations…

    Wendy D. says:

    I work at my local public library and the cricut would be so helpful (and time saving) in making decorations and offering more crafting programs to our patrons!

    OM says:

    I would use it to create labels in my pantry, and also to label my bins (no more ppl getting confused between general waste and recycling lol).

    Also, I would use it to customise stuff for my family eid party. It’s hard to find decorations marketed towards eid in the UK. I could make the most incredible cake toppers and banners. The possibilities are endless!

    Jocelyne says:

    This would be wonderful for my upcoming wedding projects! Oh the possibilities! excited for this one!

    Raquel says:

    I would use the cricut to add quotes on my photo on wood transfers. I would also use to create cut out images for birthday party and candy buffets

    Dani says:

    As I designer there are so many ways I can think to use this, but the first thing that comes to mind are wedding invites!

    Ivy says:

    I’m a fashion designer, and would use this to make avant garde gowns and creations covered in precision cut appliqués of leather and unconventional materials.

    Elise says:

    I would use this to help get my freelance business/etsy shop off the ground! I’ve been looking into Cricket products for making stencils to use to screen print. I also would like to use the Cricket to create paper goods to sell on my future easy shop! I feel with the use of this Cricket Air in order to set myself apart from other designers in the freelance game.

    kim boswell says:

    As an art student I could make amazing 3d sculptures with that machine, among endless possibilities of course!

    Yolonda says:

    I would create framed art work for my home. And make a few fun items for my co-workers wedding.She’s so into this too.

    Vanessa says:

    Wow! So cool. I would make a bunch of beautiful art to frame for our new home 🙂

    Nora says:

    It would be so fun to use to spell out banners for the empty wall in our dining room…would love to have had it to make Easter decorations for our family brunch this weekend.

    loren says:

    OMG! I would love to have one of these at the library where I work. We could make the best displays and have so much fun making things with the kids and teens. This would be amazing!

    Kayla says:

    I would LOVE this! I’m seeing design projects with paper cut-outs instead of the usual graphics on the computer…and a fun way to make decorations for my wedding. Place settings, decorations, cake topper…

    Alyson says:

    I loooove this thing! I want to use this machine for screen printing designs I make and cool toppers for desserts!

    Wren says:

    I could imagine myself creating greeting cards, invitations, business cards, photo shoot props, etc! Not to mention this would seriously cut down on production time and x-acto injuries… 🙂

    Mandy says:

    I’m learning how to quilt and could use this to cut fabric to make more intricate designs (my cutting precise skills are not that great). I also regularly host craft parties for my friends and we would put this to good use in our (mis)adventures. I recently hosted a fundraiser for a non-profit and my friend and I hand cut about 100 photo booth props – this will help next year in getting those done a bit faster!

    Juliana says:

    Omg! This is so amazing! I’d use it at my preschool! We’re constantly coming up with new project ideas and the hardest part is prepping everything before the kids get in. This machine would make things so much easier! It would be really fun to let the kids get involved too, now that some of them are writing.

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

    Jess says:

    Gosh the sky’s the limit… I would mostly adorn my kiddos and studio with awesome words! Maybe, encouraging words for the week. See, I’m creating while trying to create!! This rocks, thank you for the opportunity!!

    Heather Dean says:

    Oh! I would love to use this for my etsy shop. It would be awesome to make things like Cake Toppers, photobooth props, etc. with my own calligraphy!

    Emily says:

    Ah! I would love to win one of these — I’ve been drooling over them for a while. I have a ton of wedding/baby related parties for friends coming up, so I’d use it to give them that professional touch.

    Ashley says:

    would love one of these for my wedding clients!

    Abby says:

    I’m a design student who does freelance work on the side. I’ve worked with laser cutting before, but it’s expensive and require TONS of technology – a circuit would definitely make creating more feasible and fun!

    Andrea says:

    Would love to create something special for all of my bridal showers coming up!!

    Michelle Warnke says:

    Oh my gosh I am dying for one of these! I am in the midst of planning my wedding so I am sure I would print up lots of text things to put around and maybe even line drawings of our faces! I can also imagine all sorts of gift-packaging ideas and mobiles for new babies of friends! My fingers are so crossed!

    michal says:

    aaah!! so many craft opportunities!!!

    Isadora says:

    I would first make paper flower, and then the possibilities are endless!

    Kadee Payton says:

    I could make so many things with this! Art for my new house, photo props, the possibilities are endless!

    Jackie Marie says:

    I’d use this cricut explore air all day, every day! I work at a local boutique here in Florida, so this would really take my window displays up a notch. I do tons of photography for our website + blog, so I know I’d use the cricut to keep things fun and festive with my background and image ideas. Plus, I’m starting a business on the side utilizing my calligraphy + hand-lettering skills. I would absolutely LOVE to see my writing turned into a cutout with the cricut. xo

    Lauren R. says:

    I would love to make arts and crafts projects for my son!

    Jenn says:

    This has been on my wishlist! I love the fact that one can create their own designs as opposed to using preset cartridges. I’d use this nifty device to design and create items for the window displays I do each month at my local yarn shop!

    Heidi says:

    I have been lusting for a Cricut! Owning a Cricut would make creating homemade gifts a breeze!! I am seeing lots of cake toppers in my future!!

    Katie says:

    As a teacher, mom, & crafter, the possibilities are endless with a cricut. My daughter and her classmates are just learning to write their names. It would be so great to have a cut out of their own handwriting as a memento and wall art for years to come! Teachers could take this Idea and inspire their students to make so many special and interesting projects!

    Amy says:

    I’m a graphic designer, and my current side-project is product photography for my family’s bath and body product company. This would really help me step up my game! Not to mention all the parties I’m helping with over the next several months—I have friends that are getting married (and having babies) so there will be lots of showers, etc to design the heck out of.

    Plus, it just looks like a ton of fun.

    Stephanie says:

    This is amazing! Soo many possibilities but I’d love to use this to create paper flowers and photobooth props!

    Heather S says:

    How FABULOUS! I would create lots of quotes and frame them! I would also create stencil templates and paint pillow covers! 🙂

    xx

    Jenny says:

    I’m currently helping my sister with decor for her engagement party and wedding – this would be so great for banners, paper flowers and all the photo booth props I don’t want to cut out by hand!

    brandy says:

    I have a cricut mini, but the sad part is not being able to do my own designs from illustrator so I NEED this guy! I want to make wedding decor, cool hang tags, and more!

    jennifer says:

    I would print out fun says on to fabric transfer paper and stick them on totes or t-shirts!!! this is on my wish list for sure!

    Susan M. says:

    Oh my gosh! I’d love to win one to create decorations for parties and baby showers!

    Janelle says:

    I would love to make some dinosaur designs for my boys’ birthday party. They would love it!

    Caitlin says:

    I would make a million shapes out of fabric for an applique technique I’ve been dying to try!

    Ansley says:

    So many possibilities! I’m immediately thinking of all the layers and dimensionality this would add to art print. Also all the amazing party favors you could make for official brand events or even just a party. This would also be a gamechanger for small brand collaborations and build out.

    Andrea P says:

    I have at least 3 baby showers to plan this year & this would make it so easy since I’m doing a ton of DIYing!

    Molly says:

    There are so many different things I’d love to try! Photobooth props would be a biggie – but party décor and diy’s in general would be so fun to create! Thanks Bri!

    Joni says:

    I would create party decor, cake toppers, bunting, etc. The geometric cut gift tags and greeting cards are cool and a money saver.

    Shelby says:

    I have been pining after one of these fellas for the longest time. Ive taken up calligraphy within the last couple of years, so I’d love to see some of my work within that translated to projects involving other materials like vinyl or leather. The possibilities are seriously endless.

    I’m a college student still figuring out what I’m going to do with my life. As a stylist, I’ve started creative directing photoshoots for local brands and design blogs in New Orleans. I would love to incorporate it into building sets and enhancing photoshoot concepts! It could bring my graphic design skills to life, and give me something new to offer to clients who would like banners or logos printed and cut to hang for their booths, etc. On another level, I could use it to make stencils for shirts and props that I would sell as merch for my band, Ship of Fools. The possibilities are endless!

    Kaelie D says:

    The Cricut air is amazing! I would use it to make so many things for weddings. Laurerls, flower petals, personalized cake toppers. I could also use it for my regular design projects! I might have to invest in one either way. 🙂

    kelsey says:

    this new cricut looks amazing! i would love an easy way to create decor for my sons 2nd birthday coming up!

    Fab Miss Em says:

    I would print funny word cutouts and place them around my house in funny random spots to make people smile. I would also create silhouettes of my Boston Terriers and make tons of things with them. I’d create a zillion things with this awesome machine. Been wanting one for years!

    holly says:

    i will literally spend all day making different kinds of ampersands, then make an entire ampersand wall in my office. i am not kidding + will send photo proof if i win this 🙂

    Chelcey says:

    I would love to get my hands on this amazing little machine. I am an event planner by day and an organizer by love of all things organized, so I would put the Cricut Air to wonderful use. I am currently making final touches for my son’s first birthday party and am using my mom’s cricut to make some of the decor…I love how everything is coming together!

    Korin A. says:

    I would craft ALL THE THINGS!!!!! Seriously though I wouldn’t be able to stop myself. First up would be exciting fun labels for everything – the Ptouch is awesome but not especially stunning and I would label all the things in my kitchen and then the bathroom and then I would have to make some kind of art involving those awesome leaves above and then I would have to cut out everyone’s name and label all of the desks at work.

    BOOOOOOM

    Kaitlin says:

    Such great options! I’m picturing cutouts + Modge Podge + paint + canvas for a unique take on DIY wall art.

    Carmen says:

    I would throw the coolest parties with the best decorations ever!!

    These would be awesome for making banners and pretty garland! And fun props for our niece’s and nephews’ bday parties!

    Cody says:

    I think I’ll be cutting out words and shapes that you have to be standing in a certain spot to see. Like the chalk artists. That would be way easier to do on a computer and cut out

    Allison says:

    Ooo! I want to make a vinyl stencil for my walls!

    Anonymous says:

    I’d love this machine!! I’d make holiday cards to last a lifetime.

    Um, you can make ANYTHING with this! I would want to make some party decor first for my sister’s bridal shower! 🙂

    Dylan Lowe says:

    As a graphic design student, I would use them to help create my 3D projects, cut vinyl, and use it as a tool to cut all kinds of new materials!

    Anonymous says:

    I work in a design studio and the possibilities for use would be endless.

    Lindsey says:

    Hello! I’m the marketing director for a very fun children’s clothing brand! I am always crafting for special events, trade shows and fundraisers. This nifty little gadget sure would come in handy for projects!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Martha says:

    I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of these so bad!! I would use it for so many projects….but to start with, I think I would design & cut out some fun stickers in crazy shapes & sizes.

    Megan says:

    I WANT THIS!!! I would make so many things! First, I would use it to make banners and other decorations for my sons upcoming birthday. He is having a Planes themed party (Pixar) but I don’t want it to look too cheesy and generic. Then, I would use it to make vinyl stickers for the nursery for baby #2 which is coming this Fall. (We are renting and so vinyl is the perfect solution since it isn’t permanent). And on and on… There are so many things I could make!

    Meg Kowieski says:

    I’d love to utilize this machine for the freelance wedding design I do! I try to save brides money by doing all of the production work by myself, and this would save so many hours (and my back)!

    Leanne Stone says:

    I am looking to start my own crafting/design blog and have a few party supply/banner ideas that I would love to try! This would be so awesome to have!

    Kathleen says:

    I would use this for endless things, but especially banners for parties/other party decor, scrapbook pages and minibooks!

    Molly says:

    Party banners for dayssssssssssssssss!

    Melissa says:

    This is AMAZING!
    My first project would be making shapes and words for my sister’s wedding photo booth! Then I would use it for designs on my blog! Such an amazing giveaway!

    This is amazing! I’d use it for events for the nonprofit arts org I work for, home decorations, and family parties – the possibilities seems endless!

    Kayla says:

    I would use the Cricut to make an amazing backdrop for my wedding in September!

    Virginia says:

    PS — I love that ampersand!

    cara says:

    I need this for everything!!! the smaller version is not cutting it for me (get it)

    Diana says:

    I would use it to create leather accessories & straps to add onto purses & cameras. This looks very functional & very versatile which can be used for so many events – decorations for my best friend’s baby shower, laser cut flowers for our upcoming wedding & even decorating Christmas gift labels for family.

    Whitney says:

    I would use these as fun props for my children photography and weddings! I’ve made a lot of stuff similar by hand, but I love how I will get clean straight lines!!! wahoo!

    Laura says:

    I would use a Cricut to create goodies for my planner and art journal!

    Cathy M. says:

    What a fun machine! I’ve always thought it would make for a great creative tool. I’d love to try cutting out cardstock pieces that slide together using slide-in joints, etc., and result in larger, or more complex structures like buildings, flowers, or even a basic paper doll set for your kids.

    Or, for the sake of simplicity: boxes…..it would be so simple to create a box template that can be folded into shape for so many uses – gifts, small storage, sewing projects…

    So much fun to be had!

    Traci G. says:

    I would use the cricut for wall art projects!

    I’d make bunting for parties!!

    What a cool gadget! My son’s first birthday is coming up on cinco de mayo so I’d create fun props for it.

    Fiona R says:

    Stencils! All kinds of stencils!

    abbey says:

    I’m a graphic design student and a poet. I could do so many things with a Cricut; make art installations, cut out mockups, and generally streamline my work. As a student there’s no way I could afford the explore air. It would help me out so much now in school and in the professional world.

    Rose says:

    I would make anything and everything with it!

    Shanna says:

    typography! Lots and lots and lots of WORDS.

    Chrissie says:

    I would love this machine for personalized card making. But also for creating stencils for other projects (painted, mixed media and etched). It apparently cuts leather, which would open the door for cute handbag, coin purse or jewelry designs. Fingers crossed!!!

    Kamiyayh says:

    I have been wishing for a cricut! Work would be so much easier.The typography, decals, props…THE WORKS! It would help me out in so many ways.

    chelsea breanna says:

    laura blakely says:

    I make paper backdrops, and it would be sooooo nice to not have to hand punch all of the circles and add some more variety!

    Brittany says:

    is it too boring to say I want to create my own photobooth props and backdrops/ decorations for parties? There must be something more creative but I guess I’d explore more if I owned it!

    xx B

    Ary says:

    I’d use it to cut out cute shapes for banners!

    Kiki Nolen-Schmidt says:

    I would use the Cricut to take my handlettering and design work to the next level! I love creating handlettered images and would love to be able to incorporate mixed mediums like the Cricut would allow. It would also allow for such a huge range of creative development and possibilities, and who could want more than that?:)

    Michelle says:

    I would love to be able to add some dimensionality to my watercolor wedding certificates – and a Cricut would be just the ticket! **fingers crossed**

    Melissa L. says:

    I’d use it to stage prop a party I’m hosting with the Swing Era as a theme; my brothers are performing Frank Sinatra music and I’m so excited! I’d also use it to decorate my lovely and unadorned little home, it could use more color! 🙂

    Lauren H. says:

    I would love to use the Cricut in my Kindergarten classroom!

    Alic says:

    Have always wanted one ! The wonderful art projects I could create

    Megan says:

    Hi! What an amazing giveaway!

    I would make a lot of signs and banners with the Cricut Explore Air. Growing up, my siblings and I would make signs for everything (my dad was big on signs and thank you cards). So for birthdays, holidays, as congratulations etc. we would make large banners – a different letter on each piece of paper to spell something out all connected together with tape. It was a lot of fun…as well as a lot of paper, glitter, and crayons. I would love to make a banner with this for his 70th birthday! He would be so surprised!

    ~xoxo

    I would use it to make custom business cards and swing tags for my bags. To cut paper collages for my cut & paste textile designs and patches to applique on my clothing. This is such an exciting product with so much potential I can’;t wait to get my hands on one! I think it would really help get my business cranking!!

    Rachel says:

    I would love to use this to help decorate my classroom and help students make beautiful projects.

    We just moved into a new house and I’ve been dying to do some DIY art for some of the hallway locations.

    kimberly says:

    Would absolutely love love love this! I am so in need of something for my creative outlet that I can use in my sewing projects, clothing and handmade cards I love to make. If I had a genie I would make this one of my wishes….lol!

    Ashley says:

    I would absolutely LOVE to win a Cricut! I feel like I’ve had my eye on one for such a long time, but I can’t afford one right now. Crafting is my happy place, and I’d love to experiment cutting with balsa wood and vinyl. I’ve seen so many great Cricut craft ideas on Pinterest, but I think my first craft would be making paper photobooth props. I’m hosting a bridal shower for my best friend, and it’d be a lot of fun having DIY photobooth with props.

I’d love to use the Cricut to create signs for the bar, dessert table, photobooth, etc. For banners to hang, table numbers, etc. I am currently hoarding cardboard and started printing letter templates to cut out with an exacto knife, to then decorate. The Cricut & glitter sheets especially would literally save me blood sweat and tears!

    Lauren says:

    My man and I like to spend our money on experiences, especially entertaining our friends. We love to gather our friends and neighbors for parties – it’s fun and it helps build friendships and community. We craft/design our own photo booth props and decorations for each gathering and unique theme. I would love more than anything to say goodbye to my x-acto knife. A cutter would save my hands and so much time.

    I would also love to use it to cut leather and other materials for jewelry – the possibilities!

    Kathleen Murphy says:

    Perfect timing! I have a one year old bday coming up– need to cut out cars!

As a graphic designer, I have even gone as far as hand die-cutting 300 invitations because I thought it made the invitation that much more beautiful. My sister is recently pregnant and I would love to throw her the most beautiful shower of the century! Cricut-worthy signage, place cards, invitations, the works. Thank you for always doing such great giveaways!

    Meegan says:

    I would make some fun crafts for ALL of the holidays!

    I would create personalized cake/cupcake toppers and party supplies for my growing small business! I have always wanted a cricut! I currently make everything by hand, a serious labor of love!

    Thank you for the chance to win! Crossing my fingers and toes! xoxo

    Linda says:

    I love this machine! It really opens up a world of possibilities. I’m starting out as a freelancer, so I would make die cut wooden business cards. I think they would really help me stand out with potential clients.

    What couldn’t I create?! Wall art, bulletin board words, christmas cards, paper dolls… The ideas are limitless! Hope to win!!

    Liliana says:

    I want to create a beautiful backdrop for my best friend’s wedding!

    MelissaW says:

    I’d give it to my friend who is a newbie event planner. I’m sure she would come up with some cool ideas!

    juni says:

    A cricut would be so handy!! Moving into a new place with my guy soon (first home together!) and one of my home decor ideas is a quote wall written in my handwriting. The cricut would make that possible while being much neater, prettier and less permanent than actually writing on the walls

    This Cricut would be shared with all my artsy friends! I would also especially want to use this amazing machine to design/cut frames and edges for the paper I paint on and photobooth props to go with my photography!

    Sophia says:

    I would love to use the Cricut to make greeting cards for my friends and to decorate my bulletin board!

    this thing is Amazing! Once I started to see your projects on instagram and the blog I kind of had a heart attack, and then another one when I saw the price point. I just conceded to fact that I would save for one. I would use this for sooooo many things, childrens birthday parties, decorating my childrens school classrooms, for starting a shop on etsy that just does photo booth accessories! It is endless! I just won a lottery for my daughter to attend an awesome charter, so I am hoping my luck hasn’t run out yet! Love what you guys do, I am constantly inspired

    Charlie says:

    Oh my god ! this is blessed! i am an illustrator, have a glance on my page; wwww.facebook.com/ephemeredesign we do lot of stuff, but we just started so it might help doing stenciling workshop with kiddo, of doing decoration of the birthday of my soon to be 1 year old babylove.

    Yorka R. says:

    I have been dying for one for years. My ideal project would be to make custom banners for teen moms-to-be. Sometimes just a small piece of love can go the whole way. And I want to be apart of a little big love.

    Jasiminne says:

    Aaaaah this is brilliant! It’s a shame the contest is only for US readers otherwise I’d be all on it! Am going to check out the Cricut anyway and add it to my ever growing ‘tech wish list’! x

    Jasiminne | Posh, Broke, & Bored

    Adore this! I work at a non profit that facilitates creativity and expression for elementary kiddos, I’d love to make some projects for them using this but also load in their drawings and their handwriting to cut out!

    Linh says:

    Creating custom cards and scrapbooking projects would be such a breeze with a Cricut! I would love to make some custom packaging for my macaron business as well.

    Libby says:

    Hi Bri! So cool. I would use the heck out of the circuit explore air to create stencils for applying colors to my pottery. Looks like sky’s the limit as far as shapes go, so it would be fantastic to see more intricate and smoother color lines applied to my work. Thanks for the chance!

    Hallie says:

    I would never buy another greeting card again!

    Julia Devine says:

    I think the projects I would use the Circut for would be endless! I would love to use it to make some paper wall art. Very cool technology! I love the leaves, Bri! 🙂

    I’m the “birthday fairy” at my office, and I would go all out customizing banners to decorate my coworkers’ offices! Right now I have one I found on Etsy that says “Holy shit you’re old” in gold glitter, and it’s everyone’s favorite. I think I could make my own glitter banner that tops that, though!

    Ah! I’m a calligrapher and would LOVE this for printing out my words and letters. I would seriously love to win this!

    Maddie says:

    I would love to run water colors through this to get awesome cut outs to frame!

    Ali says:

    I’m a visual artist (printmaking and collage), and last week I double-fractured my dominant hand, leaving me unable to draw or write for the first time in my life. Ironically, I have an open studio event in less than a month, so this would be great in helping me get work done!

    Candace says:

    This would be perfect to make Papel Picados, I’m a photographer and constantly want to create unique pieces for my photography. In the past I made a papel picado by hand, with an exacto knife. It would be amazing to have a more efficient and exact method of cutting paper!

    Jayne says:

    Love all things Cricut!! I make Invitations, art and monograms, and would love to translate them all using the Cricut Explore Air!! Laser cutting is such an expensive service, so this would be amazing to have the creativity of that in my own home whenever I wanted!!!

    Allison says:

    I have been dreaming of a cricut. I love repainting old mirror frames and etching the mirror glass. I would use the cricut to cut vinyl to use as stencils for glass etching. I then sell the repurposed etched mirrors among many other etches things like mason jars!

    Heather says:

    There’s not way to ever pick just one project! I have so many ideas!

    alex says:

    i’d love to make words to hang above an office space!!!

    Tonya M says:

    I didn’t know about the the Cricut machine until this post and I’m really excited about it. As a designer that had an exacto knife incident, I now have a lot of stress and anxiety about using anything but scissors. This would allow me to be confident in designing things such as cutouts of my business name. Thanks so much! This is fantastic!

    I would love to have a cricut so I could make more detailed leather bags. I Think this would be a great way to incorporate cut out designs in my products!

    -Courtney

    I would use it to create thank you notes, love notes, etc. for those that I love, or anyone that just needs a thank you, or reminder that they are special.

    Tara says:

    This is great! I would LOVE to win this! I’m a graphic design student and have used a laser cutter before to make some really cool things but I don’t always have access to it (and I definitely won’t when I graduate in May).

    Wendy says:

    Tabitha says:

    I would love to create cutouts for my small calligraphy business! What a cool and innovative machine!!!!

    Erin Jones Turner says:

    This is a awesome giveway! I’ve never heard of cricut but after looking around I could really use this machine. I’m currently updating my website so I posted this greeting card I made at the end of 2014 on my tumblr. This machine would have been so helpful. But I have so many more ideas that I’d love to execute and this machine would be a god send!!! Pretty please chooooooseeee me! :))

    I’d get cracking on Christmas presents for everyone. Perhaps a fun Christmas card even

    Vivi says:

    Hello! I am a freelance origami artist. You may think.. Why is an origami artist interested in a cricut?
    First of all, circut will allow me to have square sheets of paper. It’s really (!!) difficult cutting perfect squares by your own. Moreover, others shape papers are needed ,like hexagonal or triangular ones. With them you can create beautiful patterns.
    Of course, you can buy them, but I would love folding with my own paper desings. I have been working on butterflies and moths with watercolor painting on handmade paper and cricut would be perfect for cutting square sheets.
    I know I am asking for squares when this machine can do much more things, but sometimes the easiest things become the more challenging and pleasant ones.
    Please, I would really take advantage of this ingenious invention.

    Holly H says:

    I would use it for crafts for my daughter’s Kindergarten class art projects, my mother’s nursing home activities, and my grandchildren’s projects and so many other things!

    I love making things everyday. I use my expression and love making lanterns for party’s, but having to stop and change out my scoring tool is frustrating and doesn’t always line up. I love making flowers with your Flower shoppe cartridge. Presently making an anchor with the Life’s a beach cartridge and putting some quilling on it, we’ll see how that looks in a bit. What I would love to do if I had an explore? The possibilities are endless. I would love to make a million things with the vinyl. I see glass blocks, christmas ornaments, cutting boards, cups and family plates. I would love to design t-shirts and all sorts of iron on pieces! My mind is always thinking of the next thing I can make. Vinyl on my walls with beautiful inspirations, I also incorporate my cricut flowers and foliage in with my quilling pieces. I would love to make wedding gifts and invitations, baby gifts and baby shower invites. And lets not forget about the baby’s arrival cards. I would love to try the metal engraving, that sounds exciting! Too many possibilities with the Explore Air! But I would love to take on the challenge!

    The Cricuit Air would make crafting easier on the go. When I visit my elderly friends, I could create with them and produce the beautiful creations they come up with. Crafting for them has always been a joy. Age has taken that away from them and me quite frankly. Cutting out beautiful flowers, words, boxes and ornaments that used to be done by hand would be so much simpler.

It would become a 3D picture. It’s hard to describe what I’m seeing in my head, but I know it will be beautiful. The cricut machine would be great, because I could make duplicate copies of each piece and glue them together to add a 3D effect. I would then attach it to my canvas.

    I love the fact these machines cut photo mat board so I can create custom mats for the photos of my toddler.

    I plan to homeschool him, so having a cricut opens up so many fun projects we can do together as part of his education too. Education doesn’t have to be boring 🙂

    He just turned 3 and already loves to rubber stamp and has started using one of my old digital cameras. Crafting with toddlers can be so much fun and great for their development.

    He also loves to paint on canvas with acrylics, so having the cricut to create masks is awesome. We use vinyl lettering to mask off areas of the canvas’s, so their are some really cool quotes hanging on our wall with his first art pieces 🙂

    The possibilities with a cricut are endless and something the whole family can enjoy. Even hubby who is not exactly what you would call “crafty” can get in on the action and help our son create something cool and fun.

    This week we created a door sign for the little guys bedroom. It’s an MDF sheriffs badge blank, painted gold and has a Western style font cut out and embossed….then we hung it with velcro so he can take it on and off.

    So many project ideas, so little time 🙂

    Thanks for a cool giveaway and great inspiration..good luck everyone.

    Ailyn says:

    I’ve always wanted a Cricut! I’d definitely use it at work. I work at a youth homeless shelter and it could really use some sprucing up.

    I had a circuit then it broke 🙁 Party prep is so boring now. I work at a transitional housing program. If I had one right now I would be making crafts for the kids at our Easter party, then I would start on luau photo props for an upcoming volunteer appreciation lunch and them maybe a steam-punk themed fundraiser for an community event this month. I had a prototype for puppet kits for clinicians to use with children and families I would like to finish that project. Finnaly I would love to make some decorations for the horrible pine walls in my new house. A Cricut is not a luxury in my world it is both a money saver and maker! If you put a circuit into my hands even a used mini I would squeeze every last bit of value out of it making beautiful things for people that could some splashes of beauty in their lives. THANKS for doing your part in spreading good design and making the world a prettier place.

    Madeline says:

    i have a onesie shop that I have created thanks to the Cricut expressions. It has taken me a long way but often limits me and my client requests. I would love to expand my designs and create new accessories. My best friend is also getting married and a lot of the things she has pinned on Pinterest are like the photos above. I would love to create an amazing gift for her and help her create the wedding of her dreams with lots of CRICUT creations!

    Julie says:

    I mkae greeting cards and this would give me a lot more design options.

    Kim says:

    Courtney says:

    This is amazing! I would make awesome party decorations, stencils for my DIY coasters, and inspirational quotes for my office!

    Carol says:

    I love the idea of being able to cut out some of my own handwriting. Alot of people have told me they like my handwriting. My mom has been diagnosed with essential shakes which affects her handwriting–so it would be nice to be able to use the Cricut for this if I wind up suffering from the same thing.

    Karen says:

    I bought my first Cricut in 2008. Primarily, I used it for card making but, I started to get requests for vinyl cuts and banners for seriously ill children. Last March our home flooded and I lost my Cricut. Because our insurance wouldn’t cover much, I had to forgo the Cricut for other necessary items. But, if I had a Cricut again I could go back to making the banners and vinyl cuts for these kids, again. I think my joy of creating and giving might have been more than the joy it gave them. I’d love to have that all back again…and someday I will!!!

    Dale says:

    Oh, the possibilities are endless! I could create photo booth backgrounds, props for photography shoots, create packaging for products, little hats for my dogs, bunting for my home, cards for my friends, the list goes on and on!

    I love LOVE to put my personal touch on everything! I want this machine to design books for my photography clients, and other photo related items that will enhance my photo business, which I cannot afford to buy at this time. My creative juices are salivating over the cell phone cases, the bags, leather cases, I see so many things I can do and my mind is going beyond what I have seen on the website! I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these babies! Please please choose me, my hubby got hurt over a year ago in an accident and cannot work, I am working very hard to do whatever i can to supplement what little we do have and I know this would make a world of difference in our lives!

    Sonia Holmes says:

    i wish you all luck from the UK. Such a pity we are not included, there are a lot of talented people here and indeed in Australia, Canada etc.

    Ther isn’t anything I wouldn’t try. When I first got my Cricut Expression many years ago, I was cutting images just because they were so adorable. I think I would like to make an art journal, window decals and words of inspiration for my granddaughter. I could label everything with projects cut from the Cricuit Air and become better organized. The possibilities are endless.

    Kimberly Bennett says:
