It comes as no surprise that I love crafting – I am all about making pretty things! The Cricut Maker has totally changed the way I craft because of how versatile it is for us crafters. The Cricut Maker offers something for everyone – whether you are an avid sewer or just like personalizing gifts. The machine makes it SO easy to create whatever your little heart desires. The Maker was definitely made with us crafters in mind because they continuously come out with new materials and tools to make our crafting better.

Versatile Tools

Cricut Maker Tools

The Cricut Maker has so many different tools to help your crafting needs. They recently released 4 new tools (Cricut Maker Tools) to take your crafting to the next level. I’ll share some of the projects I made with those tools so you can see a little bit of how they may work for your projects. Here are some of the tools that you can use with the machine – they are specific to your needs.

  • Compatible with Knife Blade for thicker materials up to 2.4 mm (sold separately)
  • Rotary Blade for cutting virtually any fabric without backer
  • Compatible with QuickSwap™ tools to quickly switch between scoring, engraving, debossing, and other decorative effects (sold separately)
  • Compatible with Washable Fabric Pen for marking pattern pieces (sold separately)
  • Adaptive Tool System™ for professional-level cutting performance and expandability

The possibilities are endless when it comes to the Cricut Maker. If you are new to sewing having the ability to cut material and create homemade projects easily has been one of my favorite things to do.

More than 300 Different Types of Materials 

The machine not only gives you different options to cut but the abundance of materials you can use is pretty amazing! From the most delicate paper and fabric to the tough stuff like matboard, leather, and basswood. Because the Maker cuts thicker materials that can open entirely new possibilities for your crafting. For example, the Maker doesn’t cut through thicker acrylic material but it can engrave which can make beautiful personalized signs – perfect for weddings and anniversary parties.

That beautiful sign was made using an acrylic sheet, the engraving tool, and vinyl. Using a dry erase marker to give the lines definition.  One of my other favorite materials to cut is leather. You can do so much with leather material – like earrings, bracelets, or engraving a beautiful cover for a notebook.

Personalization is a Breeze

The ability to create t-shirts, tote bags, onesies, and more really makes the Maker one of a kind. Every school year my kids ask me to personalize their school supplies. My daughter wanted a unicorn backpack this year so that’s what she got! You can see how to create your own unicorn back or personalized clothing.
