Good morning! Boy! This summer has been busy for our family. How about yours? We have been on the road for just about half the summer it seems! Being in the car brings it’s own challenges, and you don’t want to get left in a pinch if something comes up! That why I love putting together a car survival kit when our family hits the road.

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. :)

Good morning! I so love this time of year, and I think my favorite part is being able to get outside and dig in the dirt! ha! How about you? This past Saturday we were outside all day long. We planted our garden and did a lot of yard clean up from last week’s storm. We had a raging river right through our backyard. ;) Today I am excited to be featuring Tons of Ideas for Plants with you.
