What I Wish I Knew Before Getting A Cricut & Baby Blocks!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

Part of my job on A Bubbly Life is to share projects I make and the materials I work with and I started working with Cricut a few months ago and I am now recommending it to everyone.  All the time.  I am probably annoying about it. The Cricut Joy is to crafting what the air fryer is to cooking.  I cannot stop talking about either one.

I really wish I knew how easy the Cricut Joy was to use because I would have owned a Cricut for years now.  I honestly had not purchased a Cricut in the past because I did not feel like learning another system, I figured I could just make anything the Cricut could do.  Now that I own the Cricut Joy, my huge regret is that I did NOT buy it sooner.  I cannot believe how easy it is to use, how much party decor I could have made… the list goes on and on.  As I am using it day to day, I am learning more and more.  When I first opened it, it was essentially plug and play, I figured it out very easily, without any help from tutorials.  Now, I do look up what materials i need to use and may check out tutorials to learn tips and tricks, but otherwise the machine is intuitive and easy to use.  Cricut Design Space is the software/app you use to design everything. It is so easy to create your projects and the design space has so many images and fonts to use.  I am more modern boho style and find tons of images.  Farmhouse, modern, cutesy- you name it and the design space has an image and/or font for you.   I can also download the app and use it on my phone, making it even easier to create projects in a little amount of time.

Here I am enjoying the Cricut in Flagstaff (no mat!) I think my camera is bigger than the machine lol.  It is definitely lighter and that is one of the reasons I love the Cricut Joy is the size!!  Cricut Joy is so small and compact and you do not need a mat.  I like as little supplies as possible because we travel to our home in Flagstaff nearly every Summer weekend to beat the 120 degree weather at home.  The Cricut Joy is easy to travel with- the vinyl rolls take up more space than the machine, lol.  

My latest project is another one for Cole- baby blocks! Or I should call them toddler blocks for him?  Check out the project on Cricut Design Space to make your own!

Here are a couple projects on the blog that I have made with the Cricut Joy. Most of the projects have been geared towards my cutie pie Cole.

My next project will be a decal for Flagstaff (so yes I will be traveling with it again!) It will be my first time using transfer tape and now that I find everything so easy to use, I am excited to try something new because I dork out on any new craft materials.

You can pick up the Cricut Joy here or try another Cricut machine- I prefer thee small, travel easy one but you may want another one!
