DO YOU WISH YOU COULD GIVE BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE CARDS AND GIFTS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS?  WANT TO ORGANIZE YOUR HOME IN A SNAP?  READY TO CREATE YOUR OWN HOME DECOR AND ARTWORK?  YOU CAN DO ALL THIS AND MORE WITH THE CRICUT MAKER!

Question for you:  How many times have you looked online, particularly at Pinterest, and thought how great it would be to make those beautiful cards, tags, gift boxes and pretty much every other creative thing?  And then you remembered that you don’t have the time or the artistic abilities to make them?  Yeah – that’s me.  BUT … there is hope for us!  And what is that hope, you may ask?  Well – it’s the CRICUT MAKER!  So keep reading to find out why you need to get a Cricut Maker.

 

 

 

With more models than ever to choose from, the Cricut Maker is a crucial tool in any well-equipped craft room!

 

Handmade is Awesome!

As I mentioned above, I love the idea of giving handmade cards for special occasions.  The thought of being able to customize tags at Christmas, create invitations to my own events, even make those crazy cool wall signs – I love it all.  But on a scale of 1 to 10, my artistic talent sits at around negative 23.  I have the ideas, but I’ve never learned to translate the pictures in my head onto paper (or wood, or cards – you get the idea).  So I bought my first Cricut Maker last year.  AND I bought a one-year premium subscription to Cricut Access.  Let me tell you, I was off to the races!

Since purchasing my Cricut Maker, I’ve made birthday cards, Christmas gift tags and a Valentine’s Day Garland.  I’ve also made labels for bottles, jars – you name it.  I absolutely LOVE how easy it is to create using my Cricut Maker!  And by clicking on this link >> Shop Cricut <<, you can get your own Cricut Maker, delivered to your door. 

Be sure to add in the Cricut Access Premium subscription (the link below will take you there).  What I’m really finding is that when I maybe don’t have a huge amount of inspiration, I can scroll through Cricut Access and find exactly what I need.  There are so many great projects to try, you won’t even know where to start!

 

 

 

Getting Organized is a Breeze!

Like I said before, I’m even making labels for my bottles at home.  I make my own Natural Air Fresheners, and I created my own shiny labels for the bottles.  Love them!  Cricut has an amazing array of adhesive vinyl for this purpose, so you can really go wild!  Try colour-coordinating your pantry items or body care products.  There’s virtually no limit to how you can use them!

Save Time and Money!

What??  Save time AND money?  Yup, count me in!  Yes, of course, there is an initial outlay of money for the Cricut Maker, but when I look at the cost of birthday cards these days and then start adding up family members who receive cards from us, the Maker pays for itself inside a year.  And that’s not counting Christmas gift tags and any other crafts I choose to make throughout the year!  Say what???  I’m sorry, but it’s just totally worth it right there.  Then, if you are able to whip up a card from supplies that you already have at home, you save yourself the trip to the store and, if you’re anything like me, the cost of whatever else you decide to purchase while you’re out!  It’s a win-win, for sure!

It’s NOT Just for Paper!

Have you looked at all the amazing things you can do with the Cricut Maker?  It isn’t just for cutting paper anymore – did you know that you can cut fabric (helloooo quilters), textiles and even some lightweight woods?  The possibilities are practically endless!  Get your Maker and get your craft on!

As a final note, if these reasons haven’t yet shown you why you need to get a Cricut Maker, check this out – there are so many amazing sites out there that can show you new and amazing ways to use your Maker, and how to make use of Cricut Access Membership Plans, that you’ll never be lacking for inspiration.  You’ll be turning out new projects on a daily basis!  So much fun!
