NEW Maker Tools


NEW Maker Tools



Cricut released 4 new tools for the Cricut maker as promised :) YAY!!!

The Cricut Maker Delivers 10 times (4 kg) or more cutting force than the Explore line 

When Cricut launched the  Maker  2years ago, it made a promise to come out with more tools and materials, so that Maker could grow with creators as they master new crafts.  These tools are possible, and can be used only with Maker, because it was specially designed with an Adaptive Tool System. This system brings together three major technologies that give  Maker  professional class cutting versatility and performance. 

Here is what Cricut has to say about the new blades.

Basic Perforation Blade - Create finely perforated lines for any design: 
Get the perfect tear quickly and effortlessly with precise perforation cuts for a wide variety of projects. To create uniform, finely perforated lines for any design, just snap this tip onto the QuickSwap Housing and tell your Cricut Maker to "Go!" Evenly spaced perforation lines allow for clean, well-spaced tearing without the need to fold beforehand – especially great for shapes with curves. Perfect for tear-out booklet pages, raffle tickets, homemade journals, or for any project that demands a neat tear. 
Wavy Blade - Go crazy with Wavy Blade: 
Get a decorative edge in half the time than a drag blade with a gentle wave cut for a wide variety of projects. To add a whimsical wavy edge to any design, this specially sculpted stainless steel blade is great for original vinyl decals, iron-on designs, envelopes, cards, gift tags, collage projects, or any time you need fabulously finished edges and stylish design accents. Perfect for iron-on, vinyl, paper, cardstock, fabric, and more.   
Fine Debossing Tip - Add elegance with pro-level debossing: 
Add professional polish and elevated elegance to paper crafts by creating crisp, detailed debossed designs. Unlike folders, which lock you into a specific design, this rolling debossing ball, with a wider range of motion, gives you free reign to customize, personalize, and design with incredible intricacy. Make a dimensional wedding card, thank you card with your monogram, or add flourish to gift boxes, tags, and more. Creates a stunning effect on foil cardstock, coated paper, shimmer and glitter paper, basswood, and much more.   
Engraving Tip – Turn any project into a keepsake: 
Make a lasting impression with Cricut Engraving Tip. To get professional-looking results, just snap this tip onto the QuickSwap Housing and tell your Cricut Maker to "Go!" Watch with awe as you write personalized text or create monograms, draw decorative flourishes and embellishments, or inscribe your favorite quotes on a keepsake. For an eye-catching effect, engrave Cricut Metal Sheets or anodized aluminum to reveal the silver beneath.   

Check out my Video to see me testing out 2 of the blades. The etching tip and the perforation blade.



I used the perforation blade to make this super cute treat box. I added 6 perforated doors and made inserts to create a mystery box so you have 6 surprises inside you can use candy or toys. This would make a great classroom project! 

The perfection blade worked amazing it make the most perfect tear lines so easy to use I'm obsessed. 

Next I used the Engraving tip and Infusible Ink on the new aluminum sheets from cricut what a mind blowing experience so cool.

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

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. 






The Maker Currently has 3 Adaptive Tools outside of the Standard blade and 4 different Mats available.
