Welcome the latest member of the Cricut Family: Cricut Explore One!


VERY exciting news has dropped from the Cricut powers that be lately! They are rolling out a brand new machine, and it might not be what you expect...



TA-DA!

Presenting the Cricut Explore One! A new machine in my all time favorite color (I know, grey is my favorite color and I'm not even ashamed)! 

So what's the big deal about the Explore One? 

SAME CUT SMART(R) CUTTING TECHNOLOGY

The Cricut Explore One  has the same quality of cut as the Cricut Explore and the Cricut Explore Air! This technology is one of the many things that sets Cricut apart and leads the industry in cutting machines. 
I've done several test projects on the Cricut Explore One (vinyl, cardstock, paper, etc) and it cuts JUST like my Explore and my Explore Air! 


MORE AFFORDABLE PRICE POINT

Jo-Ann and Amazon are pre-selling the Explore One already! And the price?
$199.99
SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS. 
As the most recent addition to the Explore family, this represents the most affordable way for you to jump on the Cricut Explore train. 


FEATURE VARIATION

There are two slight variations in features for the Explore One. 
There is only one cutting head (meaning no second head for a scoring tool or writing utensil.
There is no built-in Bluetooth wireless. 
There's an option for you to get the second cutting head if you choose to do so down the road, however! But if you want the 2nd cutting head and the wireless, you're best off with the Explore Air. See my handy dandy chart right here. 



A FEW MORE THINGS

My mother in law happened to be here when I got my Cricut Explore One from Cricut, so I had the opportunity to have her try installing the machine! She is an avid papercrafter and Stampin' Up Demonstrator and all about the craftiness in general. She is very intimidated by electronic cutting machines, but she LOVES to watch me use mine! 

I plugged in the machine for her, gave her the "start here" book and let her go. And she did it! COMPLETELY. Mostly because Cricut has this genius way of making installation the easiest thing on the planet when they combine photos and text in a very easy step-by-step format that anyone (computer savvy or not) can follow. 

TO SUMMARIZE

Enough of my blathering. Here's a handy dandy chart!


Are you excited about the new Cricut Explore One?
If you don't have an e-cutting machine, would this make you interested in trying one? 
Are you just itching to get your craft on like I am?!

Happy crafting, y'all! 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
