Sorry I have to take down the Design Space video

Sorry, I was asked by Cricut to take down my video until the 5th of February. I will put it back to public then and have more videos. I will post them all here.

I also want to thank Cricut and my subscribers, it is because of you they are sending me the machine and letting me try their software early. Cricut believes I have an audience they want to reach. I have the best audience ever! You guys are awesome!

I will post other projects until then, Thank You!

Here are a few videos from Cricut

 

Cricut Design Space Software video

Here is a video of the New software Cricut Design Space. The software looks stretched a little, the next will be better. The software is better quality than it looks in the video.

This software can only be used with the New Cricut Explore machine.

This is just a first look, there is so much more to show you I could have gone on for hours, but this video is 25 min.

Leave me comments and tell me what you want  to see in the next video.

Cricut Design Space

I am playing with the New Software for Cricut's new Machine Explore. You are going to be amazed, I was. Here is a picture of what I created in the Design Space Software from a jpeg.

Here are some pictures of the cut file I created using only the new Design Space Software.

 
 

This is the picture I used to create my cut file. I had to make different layers as all the different colors in the software is a different layer. I think I did a pretty good job as this was the first time I have ever used this software and I had no instruction. I just played around with it to learn it.
 
I can not wait to cut this out, I will not have the machine until feb 5th. I'm so excited to make videos for all of you.
Please leave questions in the comments. Tell me what you want to see in the software. I will try to make videos of what you want to know about the software.

Cricut Explore is the new machine


Cricut Explore is the first product to be released as part of this new era for the brand. A versatile cutting, drawing and embossing machine, it works with powerful software that lets you create a HUGE  range of craft products.






Despite the picture making it look small it will cut on a 12x24 mat.
There are significant feature upgrades in the machine and new software it is Easy, Precise and Versatile and is Bluetooth so no more cords.

The new machine will draw, emboss and cut. But more about the software...Cricut will be offering a Subscription service for over 25,000 images (about half of the library) for a monthly fee of $9.99.  You are able to subscribe month to month and cancel anytime.  They are offering it as an annual subscription for $99.99. That's only $8.33 a month if you buy the annual subscription.

As you can see in the picture below you can cut from a tablet.

Looks like 2 blade housings, one for cutting and my guess the other for drawing? It does it all at the same time, see picture below of the Thank You.
That's not all! Just wait til they announce more! You will not be disappointed So Much More to Come!

HSN has announced it will be for sale 2/12

MSRP Only $299



Here are pics taken at the ALT Summit from other bloggers, They are saying it cuts SVG and more.

This is where the cartridge goes.



This was made in only one pass of the Cricut!
