Cricut has once again pulled out the stops, expanding their product range to include skin tones, reflective and on-trend colour ways.
Cricut offer a very broad range of materials to support any crafting project. From Everyday Iron On, Heat Transfer Vinyls and so on, you can’t go past the quality and reliability of Cricut products.
I’ve previously written a review on the wonderful Cricut Maker 3. You can find the review here. Read in conjunction with the Cricut Heatpress review here , you get an idea of how the Cricut world is an infinite universe of craft options.
Let’s check out these new products, shall we?
Iron-On 12 x 12″ Skin Tone Sampler
There’s so much scope for enhancing your craft project with the Cricut Skin Tone iron on sampler.
There are ten sheets in the sample pack. Each one approximately 12 in x 12 in, so they will fit perfectly on your cutting mat.
Cricut have answered the call for a more tonal selection, giving consumers the ability to embrace true creativity through this array of tones, ranging from an off white to black, and everything inbetween. Faces, bodies, backgrounds, accents; the application options are endless!
Reflective Heat-Transfer Vinyl
This one will be a hit with the kids; Cricut have developed a wonderful heat transfer which reflect colour under bright light. As you can see in their promo pic, it is very effective and pretty cool I think.
I can envisage a variety of uses, from simple embellishments/pics on children’s clothing, to using as a reflective option on adult clothing.
Alternatively, you could use it on camping gear, animal collars, stickers and so on. If you’ve got a black cat who likes to hide down the back yard in the dark, the collar option is a real winner (because I can’t technically heat press the whole cat, okay?!). The list is pretty much endless.
I am LOVING the Mint, Rose Gold and Coral selection new to the shelves. These colours are very on trend and bring a sense of calm to any item you choose to embellish.
Tea towels, t-shirts, towels, linen, other clothing items, School Book Bags, and so on; get your creative cap on and go for it!
Keep in mind you MUST mirror all images if you mirror the first colour… because otherwise your design layering will be out of sync. And then you might have to cut each flow hole/petal ring individually. And press them individually. And you really wouldn’t want that. *whistles innocently
Not sure where to start? Cricut’s impressive App, Design Space, is a great step off point for all craft inspiration. I’ve used it extensively and can highly recommend the app. You benefit from multiple creators sharing their finished products and step by step instructions. Or you can design and create your own craft project from scratch. Cricut helps turn your dreams into reality.
And don’t worry, you’ve got tuition options galore, so no need to feel paralysed by fear at the thought of making your first few projects. Design Space walks you through everything step by step, plus there’s a whole community of like-minded crafters on Facebook, TikTok and Youtube.
Failing that, remember the golden rule of crafting: It wasn’t a mistake, it was meant to be that way. *coughs
Once again Cricut anticipates the crafting market needs and delivers. Reliable products at a competitive price, Cricut’s product range is diverse and gives you a quality outcome every time. Cricut’s new range of iron on vinyls can be found at all participating stockists. Order online or, if you’re near a stockist, head in and check out Cricut’s extensive range of materials.
I’d like to thank Cricut once again for their faith in my crafting skills (!), and the opportunity to review their new materials range.
