When I first got my Cricut Explore Air 2, I wasn't exactly sure what I to do with it. I'm not a card maker, and I don't scrapbook, both of which are popular uses for a die-cut machine. The machine almost went back as I kept thinking, maybe I didn't need it.

Was I wrong!

If you're new to the Cricut Machine world, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed on how to use the machine, not alone what to do with it.

Of course, there are a bazillion things you can do with a Cricut machine, and I can't possibly list them ALL, but here are some of the more popular ways to get your creative juices flowing!
