Become A Designer with Cricut

In the past I have told you about Cricut Explore One™, Cricut Explore Air™ and Cricut Design Space™, not the time has come  chat about some of the really neat things you can create when you put it all together.

As you’re getting familiar with your Cricut machine, it’s a great idea to take advantage of the free Make it Now™ projects and images that you get with Cricut Design Space™. I can tell you I have spent hours just looking at all of these beautiful products.

For example, check out this adorable 3D Hot Air Balloons Mobile. It’s a fun, easy starter project and makes for the perfect baby shower or toddler’s birthday gift (and can you believe it’s made with felt?). And what’s a gift without a card? I have a friend who just found out she is having a baby and this would be the perfect gift. Cricut has a whole selection dedicated to everything baby, which is where I came across this cute baby shower card. No reason to buy when you can make it right?


What better way to tell someone how special they are than with a hand/Cricut-made card and gift? This super fun shaker card is perfect for a 21+ birthday. Next year, my oldest will be 21, that doesn’t seem possible. And even if you purchase a gift, you can always use your machine to personalize it. For example, if you bought a friend a purse or a wallet, you can create a monogramfor it. Or if you bought them a plain shirt or sweater, you could customize it with a fun image or statement.

I love this sparkly pineapple t-shirt. Did you know that the pineapple is the symbol for hospitality? All you need is a blank shirt, a roll of Cricut Iron-on, and images from the Cricut® Summer Love image set.

Pool Party

Soak up the summer fun with a pool party! You can use your machine to create everything from invitations to decorations. Here are some really creative ideas for how to add some special splash to a pool party.

Make your own beautiful table decorations, banners, party favor boxes, cards, and more for the happy couple in just a few minutes! You’ll find some really impressive ideas in  Design Space, such as this lovely Mr. & Mrs. card.

There are an unbelievable number of project examples in the Design Space, which are categorized by type (e.g. baby, holidays, home décor, school, food, etc.) and by level (easy, moderate, and advanced). You can also find a ton of great ideas for projects on Cricut‘s Blog and Pinterest page. I know that I am saving up for my machine.

The summer season is a perfect time to get your very own Cricut machine and familiarize yourself with Design Space and all the incredible projects you can create. Try out a few projects each month and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is. By the time the holiday season rolls around, you’ll be a Cricut pro and will wow your friends and family with your stunning crafting skills!

Happy crafting!
