I was asked to participate in the Cricut Design Space Star challenge! How fun is that?? So for the next few months, I’ll be posting projects that I design and create using my Cricut and the Cricut Design Space software (you can finally cut any svg or even jpg you want! Yay!)

So the first challenge was to create something related to Fashion or Gear, my team chose “lace” to be our team theme. I knew I wanted to do some sort of jewelry type item, and I hoped that the Explore could cut leather. So I went about and did some research about all the materials that the cricut explore can cut, and then went on youtube to see if it could actually cut those things. After watching a few videos about cutting leather on the Explore I felt pretty confident so I ordered some shiny gold leather (of course), and a deep cut blade.
