Sooooo lets make a Project yay!!! 

Supplies needed to complete this project 

Delux Paper Mickey & Friends Holiday Cheer

Fell free to use any Cardstock and adhesive you would like 

Check out my tutorial showing you how to make this super cute Santa Christmas card and envelope using the Cricut Explore Air 2

#1 I love the variety of material you can cut with your Cricut Explore Air 2. You can go from cutting paper crafts making cards, tags and Holiday treat bags to Cutting Iron on and Infusible Ink making T-shirts, coasters and tote bags the possibilities are endless let your imagination run wild or use one of the already made projects Cricut has designed for you.

#2 The Dial! I know it sounds simple but when your trying to utilize your time and be quick its nice 
To switch between materials. If you want to use Cricut design space for those special materials such as glitter card stock or Infusible Ink you can simply switch to the custom setting and set your materials right from Cricut design space.

  • #3 The double tool holder was such a game changer for me when Cricut added the second tool holder. It's just another time saver having Both the pen and blade ready to go at the same time or the scoring tool and blade. The only time I have to switch is in-between colors. Speaking of tools and pens they are so easy to load and unload Cricut has made everything so easy for us no fuss just easy peasy!!

#4 Wireless, Bluetooth, no cord lol.. I can use my phone, tablet laptop or desktop. I love that they have built the bluetooth into the the air 2. I don't have to buy any special adapter its super easy to setup!!

#5 Speed! You would think 2x speed can't be that much faster? Oh boy yes it is WOW is all I can say. You have to see the speed of this thing in person. I know a-lot of Crafters that own the air 2 are afraid to crank this girl up to her 2x speed but don't be you're about to cut your project time in half. 

With the faster speed I can create tons of projects back to back. It's great for when you're making multiples such as Cards, tags, treat bags, teacher projects, Print then cut stickers as well as the class T-shirts your kid signs you up for and tells you the night before they are due. :).

I hope you make this card this holiday season if you do share it over on my Facebook group CrystalAnn.

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. The Rotary Blade  The Knife Blade Scoring Wheel  Standard Grip    Light Grip St
