What are you most excited about with either machine? For me, I am most ecstatic about cutting without a mat & being able to cut up to 12 feet long! My crafty dreams are coming true! I have compared the Silhouette & Cricut machines before, & the mat and cutting length were one of my only cons to the Cricut machines over the Silhouette. Now that concern is gone! Yay! BTW you can see that review here. Now let me just share a few highlights from these amazing new smart machines. Let’s get started! :)

Hello there! It’s my favorite day of the week….featuring you! Today I am excited to be featuring 8 Garden Ideas that were linked up to the last several week’s {wow me} wednesday parties!

What Materials Can I cut With My Cricut?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

So you have a Cricut, now what? :) I have to admit when I first got my Cricut machine the majority of the time I used it for cutting vinyl. Boring, right?! ha! ;) You can literally cut hundreds of materials with your Cricut Explore Air 2, Cricut Maker or Cricut Joy. So today we are going to answer the question: What materials can I cut with my Cricut? There’s a ton! Annnnd once you start experimenting with different materials, there is no looking back. Cricut Explore, Cricut Maker & Cricut Joy machines all cut so many materials that the only limit really is your imagination. From something as delicate as tissue paper to thick leather, these amazing machines can do just about everything your crafty heart desires. :)

What is the best beginner project using a Cricut? How about these baseball inspired crafts? {tutorial}

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. Affiliate links are used. Thank you for supporting Ginger Snap Crafts.

Good morning! I am so excited to tackle one of the most common questions I get asked about my Cricut. What is the best beginner project to start with when using a Cricut machine? Annnnd if you know me at all, you know that my favorite (and the easiest project to start off with!) would be vinyl with iron-on being a close second. So, I decided to tackle not one but two baseball inspired crafts that would both be a great (& easy!) beginner craft to tackle, if you just purchased a Cricut machine. One project uses vinyl ,and the other one uses iron-on. Let’s get started! :)
