I couldn't wait to try it out. But with purpose. Not just anything....a project. Father's Day seemed to be the best reason to get a project started.
Theo and I downloaded the software from the Cricut website. Plugged in the machine and seriously that's it. After less than 5 minutes, we were ready to go.
You get this amazing sticky mat that keeps the material in place. The gridlines match the gridlines in the software. So basically, what you have on the mat on screen, prints out on the mat in the machine. Super cool.
You have access to free content within the basics library but you can buy downloadable stuff online through the Cricut Craftroom website.
We decided that we wanted to make 2 cards for Dad. One dedicated to Theo and Dad's fav passtime; video games.
|£0.99?? How can you beat that???|
You pick the image from your library in the software (you can search by keyword too) and bring the image up on your on screen mat.
It's done. All you have to do is peel it back from the sticky mat.
|Someone's pretty pleased with himself|
I went back and printed the insert on yellow paper to make the image pop. What'd you think??
I can't stress enough how easy this was! I can't wait to see everything it can do!! There is over 80,000 images to chose from.......amazing.
