  • Perfect, Just Like My First One!

    This is my second Cricut machine. The only problem I encountered with this machine was that my laptop was not Bluetooth enabled and so I had to purchase the Bluetooth Dongle on Amazon.After installing the drivers that came with the Bluetooth Dongle, it would not pair with my Cricut machine and I was not able to fix the issue with Cricut support.My husband decided to delete the drivers that came with the Bluetooth Dongle and installed the Windows drivers and everything worked perfectly after that.Very happy with my new upgraded machine.

  • Worth Every Penny

    I've had it or only a week and I think it's already paid for itself in the projects I've already made on it. Love this machine. I learned how to work around in Design Space before the machine arrived so when it came I started cutting immediately! Don't know why I waited so long to buy it.

  • Pretty to look at

    I have only had my Cricut Explore Air 2 for a week. When I took it out of the box I was very pleased with the look of it. It is very pretty to look at. The mint green goes so well with the color decor of my office/craft room. I have used it only once to cut vinyl monograms and decals for my Rtic tumblers I got for Christmas. Can't wait to make other projects. I also purchased some Anna Griffin card making sets, but haven't used them yet.
