First layouts using my Cricut Explore

I must say, I am totally smitten with my new Cricut Explore! it cuts so nice, is quiet and the software is easy peasy to work with. I've been smiling all night while working on some layouts.

Continuing on with the zoo trip I started the other day. (Yes, I will have a zillion zoo layouts!) 

If you've owned a Cricut before you know how frustrating it was to get a good cut and you couldn't cut things very small. Well, they have fixed those issues by 200%!! The title on the More Desert Dome Animals was cut at 1 inch and on super thin, super old paper and it cut like a charm!

I also love that the software breaks down the layers for you on more complicated images like the cactus and monkey and separates them on the mats so you don't have to do all that tedious work yourself! here's a close up of those~

I am also loving the subscription they have as it has access to many (I think it's 120+) cartridges plus whatever ones you may have bought or will buy in the future. It will also cut SVG files. 

I also had an awesome customer service experience with Cricut as I had a cartridge that wouldn't link. They took care of it, got it linked and were super helpful.

Yup, I'm one lucky, spoiled, happy girl!! 

Have a wonderful night!

If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

How fun Danni! I'm glad you are having some quality time with your new machine.... Love the layout, and I'm sure it more advance than the expression.... But I'm still die hard with my machine, when it first came out my hubby asked if I wanted to get it.... In away I said yes, than I changed it to no.... I don't want to part with my Expression, still love her...LOL!
