A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited up to London to try out the new Cricut Explore that is being launched in the UK imminently. It was launched in the US a few months back with lots of fanfare and excitement and the UK launch is hot on it’s heels!
First things first (and this is important) ‘Cricut‘ is pronounced ‘Cricket‘. I know, I know, every bone in your body wants to say ‘Cry-Cut‘ but that’s just not the name. It’s wrong. Protest as much as you want. The little green bug they have as a logo is there for a reason!
Secondly if you don’t know what a Cricut machine is it’s an electronic die cutting machine which (depending on the model) cuts the most amazing shapes out of paper, card, vinyl, chipboard, fabric, thin magnet board etc … amazing huh? Have a look at this video to get a better understanding.
I came away from the event buzzing. The room was crammed full of wonderful projects all made by the Cricut Explore (there was something for everyone).
