Today, I’m Black Fridaying from my couch. Because I care too much about my sanity…and my knee caps. I would prefer to leave both intact. So couch shopping it is!
All year I’ve been crafting with Cricut. I made this, this, and this was by far my favorite! And let’s not forget that time in January when I won $10,000 for this project. So yeah, the Cricut Explore is my jam.
I get a ton of emails from you guys asking about where is the best to place to buy your own Explore. The Explore is pricey and any savings is downright necessary when you’re shilling out hundreds to support your crafting habit.
So for this Black Friday, I’m doing what I can to get you a new Cricut Explore! If I could, I’d come over and gift wrap it for you! Here are the most up to date deets on Cricut deals – let the shopping begin, and your kneecaps will remain intact!
The Deal: Extra 10% from the Cricut Store plus free shipping and you can stack this deal with other discounts. Score!
The Code: DOORBUSTERS
The Dates: valid through December 15, 2015
My Picks: There’s really no way to go wrong with coupon code that gives you 10% off everything – especially when everything is already discounted. I’d suggest you start by filling your cart with some of the items in the Clearance section. Why? You ask? Well – mostly because you can get this beautiful floral folk art embossing plate for a whopping $1.79. I’m a sucker for floral folk art designs.
The Deal: $0.99 clearance items
The Code: 35DIGITAL
The Dates: valid through December 15, 2015
My Pick: Rob & Bob are my current faves when it comes to Cricut designers. Their Christmas Cheer image set is right up my alley. Super bright and super fun. With the 35DIGITAL code, you can grab the Christmas Cheer image set for $6.50, which workds out to roughly $0.07 per image. Yeah. Deal time, sisters. Deal time.
…but wait, there’s more (in my best infomercial voice!)
- Join the Cricut email list to get deets on the one day only Black Friday Mystery Box!
- up to $50 off Cricut Explore Bundles – I recommend this one because you get the most goods for just thirty dollars more than the price of the machine alone.
- $14.99 or less for all Cricut cartidges (physical and digital) – visit HERE to check out many of the available titles.
- receive a $10 credit for every $250 you spend on Cyber Monday
Phew! Now I know that’s a hefty dose of information, so I’m gonna break it down for you. If you want to bring home an Explore and start crafting with it, I’ve got your to-do list right here complete with all the links and codes you need. Let’s do this…
How to start crafting with Cricut for less than $250 …and that includes shipping
- Grab a Cricut Explore if you don’t already have one. This one is the best deal, since you get the whole shebang for only thirty bucks more than buying the machine alone.
- Snag two rolls of vinyl or iron-on material in one of the many colors on clearance. There are approximately twelve butt tons of colors available, so yeah – have at it.
- Pick up a pack of printable sticker paper or printable vinyl. They are both on uber-discount and they’ll allow you to play with the Print Then Cut feature of your new machine.
- Get the Rob & Bob Christmas Cheer Digital Image Set – it’s cheap and a great way to get a ton of images that can be used for the holidays and year round.
- Enter “DOORBUSTERS” and “35DIGITAL” at checkout – this will get you 10% off everything PLUS 35% off digital content PLUS free shipping.
With all these goods in your carts, and those sweet coupon codes, your grand total will be $246.91 which will save you about $175 and you’ll have enough supplies to craft your way through the holidays. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can make with the goddies you just scored:
- Use your vinyl to make this for your holiday table
- Garland gets a gingerbread makeover with this project using plain ‘ol cardstock and printable sticker paper
- Shine bright like a…tote bag? Use your new iron-on vinyl for this simple pretty project.
- Since you have plenty of Cricut pens, try a writing project like this card from my beloved Rob & Bob
- …and of course you can make the photo props I’m wearing in the photo up top.
Now, you’ve got the info…all that’s left to do is sneak the packages into your house before anyone sees you – wrap them up in some pretty paper then act suprised on Christmas morning when you open everything. You can just say that “Santa” dropped it off for you.
Happy crafting and happy cricuting.
