I really do not need it for anything else and thinking that I can make the toppers from cardstock once I have the form and all would only be for me and my family so doesn’t need to be fast and the best. looking for the have to have and not “nice” to have. was thinking the joy? thoughts

    • Hi Tinelle. Thanks for commenting!

      If you are only wanting to cut cardstock and vinyl for friends and family, you can choose the Cricut Explore Air 2 or the Explore Air 3. The Maker line will allow for thicker cuts though. Is it possible in the future you might branch out into other types of crafts that require thicker materials? If so, you may want to choose from the Cricut Maker line. Otherwise, for vinyl and cardstock, if you want to make long cuts, opt for the Cricut Explore Air 3, as you can cut vinyl without a mat on this machine. Otherwise, you can use 12″ and 24″ mats for the Cricut Explore Air 2 for vinyl and cardstock. Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank You for your very informational video. I think I am getting the “Cricut Bug” (LOL) and looking into Buying my Very First Cricut. Want to mainly do Iron on Transfers for Tshirts, Sweat shirts, Sweat pants and Leggings. And maybe cards. And then branch out and do Other things. I think I’ve Finally settled on getting the Cricut Explore Air 2. Can’t wait to get started!!
