Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best machine EVER!! I bought the cricut express air 2 at my local store and was over the moon to get my hands on the last pink one! I’d wanted this for a long time but seriously, nothing prepared me for how amazing it is and just what this aching can do! It’s totally amazing and I can’t fault it atal. Totally in love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was really dubious about spending this much money on what I classed as a glorified die cutter... but then I got it home. I am in LOVE. It was worth every penny. I have completed so many projects that I was putting off because my handwriting is terrible. This thing is just amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cri-cut looks stylish and works like a dream! I have been looking at these cutters for a long time - on my recent visit to hobby craft saw that there was a special price and bonus of a 3 for 2 on accessories - bargain!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine with endless possibilities. This machine makes me have several ideas a day for new ways to use it! Quick and accurate cutting with very simple to use software and lots of support and demonstrations. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Circut Air 2 I bought purely for my wedding diy personal touch and love it! There are no limits on designs, no more buying die cutters as you can design and make anything you can creatively think of! Great for bulk cutting as you just loading and un loading at a press of a button. Money well spent. Knowledge on how to use a PC is key but there are many online videos to help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Excellent customer service. Complicated product The sales assistant went out of her way to explain the features of the Cricut machine and advised the additional items which would be useful to start crafting. She could not be faulted however the machine is so complicated to use it's now in the loft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE! I bought this Explore air 2 in exchange of the Cricut Maker. I took the Maker back as it repeatedly chewed up my vinyl and card. It cut really well with iron on but nothing else. Ive exchanged and recently learnt that you MUST purchase the standard mat or the vinyl doesn't cut properly. This is the same with the explore air 2. However, I am still having cutting issues with smaller more intricate fonts. This means that my designs are compromised and I don't like having to use different materials or fonts in order for my design to be created well. On the whole, now that I am using Fablon instead of adhesive vinyl and using the premium vinyl setting, it is working a dream. Teething issues are obviously going to happen at first and unfortunately I have wasted a lot of materials in the process but now I am happy with the machine. Please learn from my mistakes and use the correct mat and choose the right materials. I find the software ok to use but I always design using GIMP and import images from there so its not a problem. It can be quite restrictive but not if you use other programs as I do. The machine looks great and is really easy to use. The start up is superb how it talks you through each stage of the process and how to do your first project. Overall...I would say I like the explore air 2 the same as the Maker (now I have sorted the teething issues) and it is better value for money than the Maker, as I dont need it to cut fabric. Hobby Craft have been AMAZING with the support they have offered with my issues. I have been back to the shop a number of times and they are always happy to offer advice and solve the problem. One staff member (James) has even offered to come in on his day off so he can give me a 1:1 session to help me further understand the machine! This is OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE! Thank you so much Hobby Craft. You dont get this level of care from buying online through other retailers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision ever Went to my local store to buy a die cutter, staff were super helpful, told me about the explore air 2 machine but went away with my manual die cutter. Until several weeks later I was back to buy this machine with what the staff have told me still in my head. I decided to go back and buy from here (despite it being cheaper elsewhere) due to the no pressure highly informative staff. Thank you ladies, this machine is my new best friend. I have never used an electronic plotter but this machine is easy to set up, super easy to use. My favourite feature is being able to upload my own images. Loads of inspiration on line if you have a little block on a project. If anyone is on the fence, don’t be. Great investment.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Q&A

The Explore Air 2 is ideal for crafters who wish to make their papercraft projects more intricate, as well as for creating personalised vinyl and iron-on designs. The Cricut Maker comes with an additional rotary blade for working with fabric-based projects, as well as for working with heavier and thicker materials. The Maker features all of the functionality of the Explore Air 2, with a more powerful cutting system.

Blade replacement depends on how much you use your Cricut machine and which materials you choose. They are designed to last well, but replacement blades are easily available for when you do require a new one. To get the most out of your blades, ensure you use the correct blade and machine settings for your material.

The Cricut Explore Air 2 cuts a wide range of materials, provided it is less than 2mm thick. This includes paper, vinyl, iron-on, cardstock, fabric, poster board, foil, burlap, canvas, sticker paper, craft foam, cork, duct tape sheets, thin faux leather, felt, flat cardboard, light chipboard, glitter paper, parchment paper, washi sheets, wrapping paper, wax paper, vellum and window cling.

Cricut Design Space is a free, cloud-based software that is used in conjunction with your Cricut machine. It is available for download on iOS and Android devices, as well as desktops and laptops. An internet connection is required to use Design Space.

Within Design Space, there are thousands of images and projects that can be used to create your own projects, and you can also upload your own designs. On first logging into Design Space, you will be taken on a tour and shown how to create your first project. However, if you need further help, there are lots of tutorials on the Cricut YouTube channel that take you through Design Space’s many capabilities.

Projects that are created in Design Space can be saved to the Cloud so that they can be accessed anywhere you are (as long as you have an internet connection). Alternatively, you can save projects to the device you are creating them on, though you will not be able to access these on any other device.
