It’s a great day to stock up on Cricut supplies – here are the Cricut Black Friday Deals:
Earlier this year I invested in my first Cricut machine.
It’s a mint Cricut Explore Air II.
I have to say that at first I was intimidated. So much so that I didn’t even open the box for a couple of MONTHS.
But eventually I drummed up the nerve and very methodically got started.
I have so much to tell you about the process but because it is Black Friday – and in the interest of time – I will jump to the chase.
Cricut is offering up to 50% on products sitewide. It’s a great deal.
Especially if you are thinking about picking up your first Cricut machine.
Here is a little advice …
Advice for First Time Cricut Buyers
Don’t make the mistake that I made.
To “save money”, and because I didn’t really know anything about the Cricut machine – I just bought the machine by itself.
Once I opened the box, I kind of realized that I needed a few Cricut tools to get started.
But I didn’t have any.
I also needed some materials to make projects.
What I should have done was buy the machine plus EVERYTHING starter set.
For example, this is what comes with the Cricut Explore Air II machine + everything starter set:
• Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape 12×48
• Cricut Replacement Blade x2
• Cricut Basic Trimmer
• Cricut Vellum Metallic Sampler 12×12
• Cricut Printable Iron On Light, 4 sheets
• Cricut Window Cling 12×48 Black
• Cricut Printable Iron On Dark, 4 sheets
• Cricut Printable Sticker Paper, 8.5×12
• Cricut Faux Leather, Wood Grain Sampler 12×12
• Cricut Poster Board Metallic, 6 sheets
• Cricut Premium Outdoor Vinyl, Light Blue 12×48
• Cricut Dry Erase Vinyl 12×48
• Cricut Window Cling, White 12×48
• Cricut Vinyl, Home Sampler 12×12
• Cricut Tools Basic Set
• Cricut Metallic Pen Set
• Cricut Multi Pen Set, Gold
• Cricut Scoring Stylus Tool
• Cricut Deep Cut Blade With Housing
• Cricut Cutting Mat, Variety 3-pack 12×12
*Items may be replaced with those of equal value based on availability.
And with the Black Friday special – you get it all at a huge discount
What I Had To Do
Because I didn’t have the tools that I needed – I ended up having to order them separately.
And I had to wait for them to get here.
Then I had to go looking for materials.
I would much rather have had everything at my fingertips ready to go – and learn.
Starter Sets on the Cricut Maker
The Cricut Maker is one of the newest machines from Cricut.
If I had to do it again, I would probably buy this one because it cuts many more materials like fabric, leather, and cardboard.
With the Cricut Black Friday deal on the Everything package, it is also a good value.
