5 Reasons to Celebrate Cricut’s 10-Year Anniversary!
Scrapbooking, Card Making, Cricut Projects, and Crafts
I got a Cricut Explore last year for Christmas, and I LOVE it! I have made signs, decorated mugs and cups, done glass etching, and created cards and scrapbook pages. It’s so much fun creating with the Cricut Explore Air!
Want to be able to easily make pretty décor, personalized gifts, and fun cards for upcoming holidays? Then you need to treat yourself to a Cricut Explore Air™ — Cricut’s very popular electronic cutting machine. It’s the best DIY crafting tool to be developed since the sewing machine!

The Cricut Explore Air is versatile, easy to use, and allows for very precise cuts. It’s also incredibly affordable, especially since Cricut generously discounted the cost by up to $200 on the machine and bundles — just in time for the holiday crafting season!
This Cricut Explore machine is called the Air because it has built-in Bluetooth® capability. This means you can use Cricut’s free iPad app and design anything you want from your iPad, just like you would on your home computer, but with the convenience of being able to take your projects with you anywhere. Then, you can just wirelessly send your project from your iPad to your Explore Air to bring it to life.
While the Cricut Explore Air is impressive on its own, purchasing it with one of Cricut’s bundle offerings makes it even more valuable. Each bundle comes with different accessories that allow you to expand your creativity and make your crafting projects even more simple and fun to create. Plus, by purchasing your Explore Air with a bundle, you’re able to save a bundle in the process!

There is a HUGE sale over at the Cricut website! Do you own a Cuttlebug? If you don’t, this is a great time to buy one. Cricut is having a Cuttlebug Sale. The machines are on sale, and so are a lot of the embossing folders and cutting dies. Cricut Mats and supplies are on sale too. AND….I know….it just keeps getting better! There is a code for FREE SHIPPING at the bottom of this post.
A Cuttlebug is a hand crank machine that embosses paper to give it a texture. You can emboss card backgrounds, die cuts, and even dinner napkins to make them fancy.
If you use cardstock that has a different color core, you can lightly sand the paper after embossing to get a really nice effect. You can also ink over the raised areas to highlight them and make them stand out. This machine features a carry handle and fold down platform, making it easy to take to crops and to store. It comes with the plates needed to cut and emboss.
You can use folders and dies from other manufacturers. I personally use Stampin’ Up, Big Shot, and Nestabilities with my machine, and they work great. Many stamp companies are offering thin dies that coordinate with their stamp sets, and they will work with the Cuttlebug.
So many companies are making embossing folders now, and there are tons of patterns from which to choose. There are all kinds of themes and holidays. Some embossing folders may be small with a sentiment and others are long and thing and can be used for borders.
The Cuttlebug would make a great gift for a crafter. It’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas. We’re less than 100 days away from the big day! The embossing folders and Cricut accessories make great stocking stuffers. I’d love to find Cricut Blades and dies under my Christmas Tree.
