Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition

If you already have a Cricut machine or have used one before, chances are you were awestruck at the amazing abilities of the machine. Cutting intricate shapes and font variations out of paper, fabric, vinyl, and other media is amazing in and of itself, but the Cricut does so with an extremely easy-to-use interface. While the previous Cricut Expression machines were great to begin with, the new Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition is even better. All of the minor grievances you may have had with your previous machine have been addressed and improved upon in the new edition. For instance, there’s a cutting area light on the Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition so you don’t have to squint to see where you’re cutting. The updated machine also features an LCD touch screen, so you don’t have to keep track of your keypad overlays anymore. Another cool improvement I noticed is that you can see all of your shape options right on the screen, so you don’t have to keep referring to the cartridge handbooks. Both of these features are a definite plus for someone who has a tendency of losing things!


Many of the other upgrades will benefit a more experienced crafter, such as text wrapping, multiple mat cutting, and mat preview. Plus, this machine comes with four cartidges (two of which are exclusively bundled with the Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition) and—get this—it’s compatible with all of your other cartridges too! So don’t worry about what to do with the cartridges you love from your Cricut Expression or Cricut Imagine—you can just pop them right into the new machine. If you want a pleasant die-cutting experience, I would already recommend trying a Cricut machine, but if you want a top of the line, luxury die-cutting experience, make sure you try out the Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition machine!
