Cricut Machine

What is a Cricut Machine?

A Cricut machine is a kind of cutting machine used to cut shapes from paper, fabric, leather and other materials. They usually come with their own cartridges which contain pre-loaded designs. These cartridges can range anywhere from basic cards, books and scrapbooking products to specialised items such as greeting cards, candles and Christmas decorations.
Although this machine is a little bit expensive, it is still a useful item. It is something that everyone needs in their craft room. For those that don’t know, it is one of the easiest machines to use. You only need to download the software onto your computer then simply plug the machine into your USB port. You want to make sure you buy the right sized cutter for the size piece you want to cut. This way you can achieve perfect results every time.
One thing that I find really helpful with this machine is that it is great for beginners. It can easily produce quality crafts as they have not yet mastered any techniques. Some of the features that you get with this particular machine are that it has a built in design station. Also an automatic feeder, laser engraver and automatic cutter.

What to think of when buying a Cricut Machine


If you are buying a Cricut, you need to think about how much money you might spend on it

The Cricut is one of the best machines to cut things like cards, paper crafts, scrapbooking, and crafting. If you want to use your own designs, then you can draw your own images on the computer. Print them directly onto the Cricut machine. This saves you money, time, and effort.
If you don’t want to do all of those steps yourself, you can hire someone else to do it for you. You can give them the images online and they will print them straight onto your paper craft at the press of a button.
If you’re looking to buy a Cricut, here are some pros and cons to consider:

Pros to consider

Fast and Easy to Use. In fact, you can draw and design your own cuts. You simply put a vinyl cutter, inkjet printer, or laser printer into its own little station and you’re ready to go.

Cons to consider

  1. Expensive. You’ll have to pay $100+ for the starter kit. Even though the basic model has everything you need to get started, you will still need to decide whether or not you want to upgrade later.
  2. Limited Designs. While you can download designs for free, it can also get costly when buying designs through sites like Etsy.
