Hiya, I am so super excited to be sharing with you my new Cricut Explore. I had hesitated for some time about getting it, you all know I love my Cricuts, but although I thought the machine looked amazing I had been hesitating because of the software side of things. I had begun to feel that those concerns I had had were being addressed so the temptation was returning, and then they showed the print and cut feature and that was it. Wham in the basket, paid and on its way lol!

Today’s videos are all about the setup, which was soooooo easy! but I didn’t know that when I was making the video of course, I also added in the how to set up the wifi attachment and the calibration of the Explore ready for your print and cut if you should want to make use of that feature. After the video are some photos of the card you saw me make and another one that you part saw made on the video and the photos show how I put the elements we cut into a card. I would like to also remind you to go on over to my instagram as there are always exclusive photos on there, as well as ones you would have seen here. And on there right now is a cute little card I made on the explore using all three of the features – cut, score and draw! Anyway lets set the machine up:-

And Finally as promised here is a video I uploaded for you a while back showing how to get Design Space working on your computer:

So thats all the videos of the setup and do keep watching as there will be some projects coming soon for you that I made using the Explore, but for now here are the photos of the projects we made during setup:-
