I recently (finally) upgraded my old Cricut Expression to the new Cricut Explore Air! I'm so thrilled, I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying it. Immediately upon opening, I went to work to learn how to operate and produce the "test" card they walk you through.
Not only was it extremely easy, but so stinkin' cute! Of course, that wasn't enough for me. So, I continued to another project that I have been wanting to do for a while. I am a member to the Lia Griffith website (well worth the money folks) and have fallen in love with so many of her designs. I recently downloaded the Peony and wanted to produce this, but definitely am not good at fussy cutting. So, it has been on the back burner for a while. UNTIL NOW!!!!
I learned how to upload an SVG and even learned that my current Microsoft Edge Browser wasn't a great browser for the Cricut Design Space. Customer service was even wonderful! So, I then had to open my Google Chrome browser to find that it worked perfect there when I went to cut, unlike the Microsoft Edge browser. Anyway, back on topic, the flower is wonderful and in a matter of minutes I had learned how to group portions of the cut together, move some to a new mat and then cut them all as one project. AMAZING!!!!!
I'm not great at the petal forming yet, but I think it looks pretty darn good for being my first one! What do you think?
I was even a good girl and sold my old Cricut Expression today. Was weird to see it go. Seems like it has been such a huge part of my family for so long now. But, it was nice to know it was going to a new Cricut user. Her Aunt bought it for her to start out on. Hope she gets as much use from it as I did.
Anyway, hopefully more Cricut projects to share tomorrow.
