Giving Away a Cricut Explore

As part of our participation in the Cricut Design Space Star Contest, Cricut has given each team a Cricut Explore to give away to our readers. A Cricut Explore is a personal electronic cutting machine. Imagine taking a design you've dreamed up, pressing go, and having the paper and fabric cut out while you wait. That's a Cricut Explore.

Even if you've never used a Cricut Explore before, trust me you'll still want to enter this giveaway. It's easy to get started creating and once you make your first project, you're going to be hooked like I am. The ease at which it cuts complicated designs on paper is amazing. (Oh how I wish this machine existed in 2010, our wedding invitations would have been a breeze to make!)

Participating in Cricut Design Space Star Contest

I'm both excited, and very nervous, to be participating in the Cricut Design Space Star Contest with nine other creatives this Fall (from top left, clockwise):

One reason you want to get a Cricut Explore now is that you can create alongside us. We're learning to use the Cricut Explore and will be sharing tips and tricks for bringing your ideas to life. You know you want to join us, making with others is much more fun than alone.

Together we are Team 12 (#DesignStar12Love). Together we create. In July, we dreamed of Endless Summer, inspired by a 1966 movie about two Californians who decide to surf the world. And, Gretchen of Three Little Monkeys Studio made the Top Ten with her surfboard inspired DIY wood veneer earrings.

Today's the last day to help her win this round.

Each round, Cricut chooses the top ten best designs. And then you (yes you!) select the best project. For this round today's the last day to cast your vote. So, right now, head over there and choose Gretchen's earrings. Then come right back and enter to win your very own Cricut Explore.
