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!
WIN YOUR OWN! Michaels is offering a bundle packed with projects and accessories to help you get started – one winner will receive the cricut explore air, 20 Lia Griffith projects, an extra 12” x 12” cutting mat and 1 month Design Space subscription!
