Some Info on the New Cricut Explore from Provo Craft

Well have you heard the news? Provo Craft is releasing a new Cricut Machine. This one is called the Cricut Explore. I'm super jazzed about this.... I've been following the hashtag #explorecricut all night as they are revealing this new beauty.

From the photos and info I've gathered so far it is an AMAZING machine. It's priced at $299!!! It Cuts, Scores and Prints all at the same time... how cool is that?! It even has an iPad app that you can use to work with it. Woot Woot! SVG files... Yep Yep! You can even buy images for 99 cents, upload images, use cartridges and/or pay $9.99 a month for access to half the library (opt out anytime).

I can't wait to use this new machine with our Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridges... Artiste, Art Philosophy and Artbooking! They are seriously the best Cricut Cartridges out there and the fact that they coordinate perfectly with our Close To My Heart My Acrylix Clear Stamp Sets... they are MUST HAVE cartridges. I was on the edge of my seat making sure you could still use cartridges with it and the answer is OF COURSE, YES! Happy Dance!

A few things to point out... there is no screen so you will need a computer to work with it. I know there is going to be an iPad app for it... no word on Android yet but I hope so as I also have a Samsung tablet I'd like to be able to use with it. You won't be able to use the Gypsy with this as it has it's own new software. You also won't be able to use Cricut Imagine cartridges either. The awesome think is the settings/speed/pressure are already preset. You now just select the type of material you're working with... paper, cardstock, vinyl, etc.

I can't wait to hear more. Provo Craft will be releasing the full details on January 21st but just wanted to share what I've heard so far. The Cricut Explore will be available for purchase starting mid February on HSN and then will be available from other retailers in March.

So what do you think? Will you be ordering one?

Do the CTMH cartridges work with the Cricut Imagine?
