My Review Of The Cricut EasyPress 2 





 I was ecstatic when Cricut announced the first Cricut EasyPress. It was a game changer for the crafting community. Brilliant from the design to the functionality! 

More Heat.

 I didn't think it could get any better but Cricut wasn't done. The Cricut EasyPress 2 is more awesome than before with temps as high as 400F I could now sublimate and Press more Iron on Materials than before.

More Sizes And More Colors.

The Cricut EasyPress 2 is now available in three sizes 6"X7", 9"X9" and 12"X10". And It's also available in Raspberry, Gold, Pink, and Mint. 

 I own the 6"X7" Its perfect for onesies and small projects. I have even used it to add Iron on to coffee mugs. I also own the 9"X9" I use it for my t-shirt's and larger projects. 

Here are a few videos I have done with the Cricut EasyPress 2

I have had no issue with my Iron On lasting with the Cricut EasyPress 2 it gives professional results every time. Anything I have thrown in the wash comes out the same way it was when I put it in the wash I dry everything like normal. 

The Cricut EasyPress 2 Now has a USB port on the back for firmware updates. 

Here is some of the improvements that Cricut has Done.

Thicker heat plate design provides improved uniform edge-to-edge heating for flawless transfers 




New streamlined Safety Base keeps Cricut EasyPress 2 in a protected resting position while also protecting crafting surface (up to 60° F cooler) 

Faster heat-up time (up to 25% faster)


Remembers time and temperature settings from last use to speed up getting started process





Its Comparable To A HeatPress

 Cricut has Designed the perfect mat it comes in three different sizes, 8"x10", 12"X12" and 20"X16".
 Its thin and easy to store and very affordable I highly recommend it when using your Cricut Easypress 2 to get that perfect press/transfer every time. 

When it comes to the Cricut EasyPress 2 I find it very comparable to a heat press. It can Press the same items a heat press can with the same great results. Its small and light weight easy to move from room to room or even travel with. Cricut has even created a tote to help you cary it quickly after using it. You can put it away and store it very easy in a cabinet or on a shelf. 

Even if you own a business making shirts its nice to have one on hand for quick start up and the 6"x7" is perfect to have on hand for onesies or small items such as a can koozie, labels, zipper bags ect. Or even getting to those hard to press items such as backpacks or even lawn chairs.

I have been using the Cricut EasyPress 2 since September 2018 when they were released. When it comes to the newest EasyPress My most favorite features are the quick heat time I can jump between 315F and 330F in seconds and the fact that it goes up to 400F because we all know I love sublimation.

Here is a video of me showing how to sublimate on wood using both a heat press and EasyPress with The same results.

Below is a fun quick Project using the Milkivore design from Cricut Design space
You can check out this video for more tips and tricks for layering with the Cricut EasyPress 2.

How To Layer Iron On HTV 





I have started using the Cricut BrightPad for layering my designs not only does it help weeding its also great for layering it really helps you see what goes where. 

After weeding all of my designs and layering them on my bright pad I then work from the bottom up Pressing them on the shirt with the Cricut EasyPress 2. I purchase my onesies from Walmart I just look for the best deal this package of Gerber organic Cotton onesies was around $6.00. For the settings I go to Cricut's website to get all of my pressing info for example everyday iron on is 315F for 30sec with a 5 min pre press they also recommend that you flip your shirt and press the back for another 15sec for more of a lasting result.

How To Customize A Onesie

Step one pre heat your Cricut EasyPress 2 to the correct settings.
Step two pre heat your shirt for 5 seconds to remove any moisture.
Step 3 place your Iron On material on the Shirt 
Step 4 Press your design with your EasyPress for the amount of time needed
Step 5 flip the shirt over and press for another 15 seconds 
Step 6 remove the protective sheet and your done :)
       



Its just that easy less than five minutes I made a super adorable onesie.




Look how professional these onesies look it was so easy from the free designs in Cricut Design space to Pressing with the Cricut EasyPress 2. No more fussing with an iron or being stationed to one room with a heat press. 



At the end of the day the Cricut EasyPress 2 is practical for any crafter or buissness. It's easy to use and store. You will get the same results as a HeatPress for way less money. You can Iron on tons of Material as well as sublimate. If you haven't already I highly recommend you try one out for yourself its worth every penny.

Cricut Maker Review

Cricut Maker Review 

Is the Cricut Maker worth the upgrade? what if I'm a beginner? What if I don't sew or cut wood?
I get a-lot of questions when it comes to the Maker and since I have owned my Maker for over two years I thought It would be a good time to tell you my thoughts on it.
When Cricut first announced the Maker I was so excited and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Fabric? Wood? say what! Two things I absolutely love to play with I just knew this machine was going to fulfill all my hopes and dreams. 
The Design is stunning I love how sleek and smooth it looks. You can tell a lot of thought went into every detail from a spot to hold you phone/Ipad to a USB. The storage got bigger and the pen holder/storage got better.
