Cricut Explore 3 is smarter and faster than the other Explore cutting machines. You will be amazed at how quickly your projects are completed. Both Cricut Maker 3 and Explore 3 are compatible with Smart Materials™. These materials do not require a mat so your favorite materials – removable, permanent, and iron-on vinyl are available! 

Cricut Explore 3

Imagine the potential when you have a smarter and faster cutting machine. The Cricut Explore 3 gives you just that – limitless possibilities for all your crafting needs. As a small business owner, I use my cutting machine to test my SVG designs that I create for my customers. It takes time to test all of my designs but now I am able to cut designs so much faster. It has been a game-changer for my small business. 

Here are some key features: 

  • Works with 100+ materials – from popular craft materials like cardstock, vinyl & iron-on to specialty materials like glitter paper, foil & bonded fabric.
  • 6 different tools – Cut, score, write, foil, and more!
  • 2x Faster than Explore 2
  • Compatible with Smart Materials™

The machine comes in a beautiful light mint green color. I love it so much! Explore 3 has many of the same features with an easy-open button, loading button, and start project button. You also have a storage area to hold your tools. 

What is Cricut Smart Materials™?

Imagine cutting without using a cutting mat! Well, that is what Smart Materials™ allows you to do. Just load your Smart Materials™ and select it from the list on Cricut Access when you are ready to cut. Your project gets cut easily! 

I love how easy it is to create bigger size vinyl projects with ease. You can cut up to 12 ft! Creating that mural on your wall just got a lot easier! I wanted to put something on my bare walls and it was a breeze to create with Smart Materials™. Using Cricut Transfer Tape to place it on my walls was easy. The material is easy to weed with a wide variety of colors, effects, and material lengths. I love that that Smart Paper™ Sticker Cardstock requires no glue! Just cut, assemble, or stick wherever it is needed. 

The Cricut Roll holder is a great accessory to have for Cricut Explore 3 or Maker 3. It holds the vinyl easily and has a built-in vinyl trimmer. Just cut once your project is complete. It makes it SO easy! I used multiple colors for my design and I just needed to switch between them. 

If you are on the market for a new cutting machine, now is the time to invest in Cricut Explore 3 available for $299.99 right now! 

What will be your first project?
