  • Great machine!

    I just love my circut explore air!! This machine is so much more quieter than the expression and cuts with great precision. I don't miss having a readout on the machine (this one you must use your computer). I also feel it's worth it to subscribe to the monthly cricut design studio (design studio is free, I subscribe to receive the images). I love the drawing feature, I love the easy dial for your material and the overall design of the machine. It's really a wonderful tool for all your crafting needs.

  • LOVE it!

    So far I love it! Very simple to use and very versatile. My only drawback is the fact that you need internet to use the design space software, and we are very rural so that can be a pain.

  • Love my Cricut!

    I'm in love with my Cricut Explore Air! I had a hard time deciding between the Cricut and the Silhouette and after months of reading reviews for both I finally decided on the Cricut Explore Air and I'm so glad I did. I took it out of the box after receiving it and used it right away. It was so quick and easy to set it up with my iPad. I'm doing the monthly subscription to Cricut Design Space and I absolutely love it!! There are soooo many designs and projects to choose from. So far I've only cut cardstock and fabric and I have to say the cuts were perfect! Even the tiniest cuts were clean and precise.... The only trouble I have is trying to decide on what to make next because there are soooo many options!! I love love love it!

    Very easy to use. No more buying cartridge...but if you have some cartridges from another cricut you can still use them. Very easy to set up from box and also download on computer. All you designs are on line now. Love my cricut air.
