Before I got this machine I really had NO IDEA how to use a Cricut and wasn’t fully aware of the tons and tons of amazing projects you can make with a Cricut machine.

Well nothing prepared me for how incredible this machine is because of all it’s able to do in a tiny little machine. Read on to find out 5 Things I love about my Cricut Joy and why you definitely need to get one for yourself.
