What is a Cricut?
Cricut has come out with so many new machines each one has special features!
How To Pick The Right Cricut Machine
which is perfect for making banners, stickers, labels, cards… This die-cutting machine is the fastest and smallest of them. Which makes this easy to store in your home, craft room, or dorm room. Or take for on-the-go crafting and doesn’t need a mat. You can use smart materials or mat with materials for cutting your projects.
The Cricut Maker is the workhorse of the bunch meaning, it can cut a variety of materials (300) including leather, fabric, lace, thin balsa wood, and does embossing, scoring… It has an adapted tool system including a variety of blades that are interchangeable in the machine. Print and cut, on white and colored paper.
I have had every machine including the Explore which I gave to my daughter, (an older version of the Air 2) and Explore Air 2. It is similar to the Maker die cutting machine. How is the machine different? It has fewer cut options. The Explore machines come with a limited variety of blades for cutting compared to the Maker. Card stock, vinyl, iron-on, bonded materials… Prints and cuts only on white paper.

What do you need to get started crafting with Cricut?
- Pick the machine that suits your crafting needs.
- Make sure to get a Cricut Cutting Mat. I like having a few. Keep the clear sheet! This cover will protect the mat when you aren’t using it and help keep it cleaner!
- See Video at end of the post for cleaning Cricut mats. It’s not a guarantee that it will always work. NOTE: you could void the warranty on the machine. You need to replace them as needed. With that said, on occasion, this can be handy if you have multiple mats to keep clean.
- NOTE: with the Cricut Joy not every project needs a mat. Example: You can use the special cutting vinyl for the Cricut Joy.
- Purchase a Cricut Tool Set (The toolsets are a must for peeling off the cuts from the mat! This is called weeding the design. A basic set like the one linked above is what you need in addition to the die-cutting machine and mat.
- Sign up for the free Cricut Design Space (explained below, it’s free to use).
- Get the supplies for your specific craft project (card-stock, vinyl, iron-on, or other supplies).
Beyond that, you will need crafting supplies for the projects you plan to make. Pick your project; Use card-stock paper, vinyl, iron-on materials, EasyPress iron… Start with what you need for a project, or stock up on a few supplies. Add to your supplies as you expand what you make with your crafting projects.
- Basic needs for starting I started with items 1-4, plus my card stock.
- When I began making iron-on T-shirts. I added the iron-on vinyl materials and bought an EasyPress.
- Now, I’m starting on vinyl projects. I can’t wait to share more Cricut crafts with you as I make them!
