Good morning! I am so excited to announce that I have join the Creative Crafts Team as an official member. Over the next four months we have joined together to bring you fun themed blog hops along with giveaways & more! Be sure to follow along. :) This month we all decided to share a fall craft. Which I was totally on board with! ha! September brings the start of the holiday crafting season, and I am here for it! I hope you are, too! I decided to share this simple & easy DIY Fall Sign tutorial with you today. One of this things I love about owning a Cricut machine is the ability to whip out new home décor in just a few minutes. It’s always easy to change it out as well. So when each holiday rolls around you can easily refresh what you have and add something new which is always fun. I have links to everyone else’s fall projects below & a giveaway for a Cricut Joy. So be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for some of the best fall crafts around & be sure to enter the giveaway! Let’s get started! :)

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. :)
