What is Cricut?
Cricut is the brand-name of a range of home die-cutting machines (or cutting plotters) used for scrapbooking, made by Provo Craft of Utah. The machines are capable of cutting paper, fabric and vinyl sheets.
The design needs to be made out of components stored on cartridges. This can be done on a PC with the Cricut Design Studio software, on a USB connected Gypsy machine, or can be programmed directly on the Cricut machine. There are currently over 275 cartridges available, to be bought separately, containing fonts and shapes, with new ones added each month.
While some cartridges are generic in content, Cricut has licensing agreements wit hDisney,Pixar,Nickelodeon,Sesame Street, and Hello Kitty.
The benefits of the Cricut Design Studio software are that the user can combine images from different cartridges, merge images, and stretch/rotate images. It also allows the user to see the images displayed on screen before beginning the cutting process, so the user can better visualize the end result.
The original cricut had cutting mats of 6 x 12 inches, the larger Cricut Expressions only allows mats of 12x12 and 12x24. The largest machine will produce letters from a half inch to 23 1/2inches high. Both the Cricut and Cricut Expressions require mats and blades which can be adjusted to cut through various types of paper and even vinyl.
Cricut is among several electronic die cutters available now to paper crafters, card makers and scrap bookers. The Cricut line comes in a wide range of prices, but the cartridges are interchangeable, although not all options on a cartridge may be available with the smaller machines.
