I love Cricut projects and I love Cricut so much that I have the Explore Air 2 and the Cricut Maker, but I am SO excited for the pint-sized version, the Cricut Joy! I’ve been busy organizing my home for Spring and I just LOVE an organized home. I used to use a label maker for a lot of these projects but a label maker just isn’t very pretty. Thankfully, Cricut just released their all new Cricut Joy machine which fits in the palm of my hand but produces gorgeous labels (and much more!!). I’ll show you 5 easy projects you can do with your Cricut Joy to get organized!

What’s Cricut Joy?

Cricut Joy is the newest cutting machine released by Cricut! The Cricut Joy is meant to work as a compact cutting machine for your craft projects, card making needs, labeling projects and so much more. It’s so compact you can hold it in the palm of your hand. Its compact design means that you don’t need a craft room in order to have the space for this machine. You can use this cutting machine on your kitchen counter, your coffee table or even take it on the go with you! And one of the best parts is that you can instantly set it up and put it away quickly too.

Why do I need a Cricut Joy?

A Cricut Joy can make your craft life heaven, as it can cut, draw and even write for you. Sounds great, right? Cricut Joy also adds a personal touch to anything as it can help you to customize, personalize and organize your everyday work – sounds like a perfect deal if you haven’t Marie Kondo’d your crafting life.

And there will definitely be joy when you use this Cricut Joy to perfectly cut the materials you want. Kiss those long sharp scissors or dangerous cutters goodbye. This smart machine can work with more than 50 crafting materials including cardstock, vinyl, iron-on and construction materials.

If you find crafts like cupcake toppers, gift tags, decals, cards, school projects and custom decor to be intimidating then the Cricut Joy is for you! Itt makes crafting a cinch, even if you aren’t crafty. And I think this would especially be good for families like us who are constantly working on one school project after another. It will be much safer to hand over the machine to your kid as compared to pointy scissors. Also, it will cut down the time it takes to make the project.

You can even customize monograms or any labels by using their pen without even lifting a finger. Sports T-shirts are easily doable too along with inscribing invitation cards – all this without a hassle of a cutting mat!

This device is also claiming to be a supportive tool for calligraphers. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

What is so special about this crafting cutting machine?


Its built-in sensors can easily measure the required material for your project and get the cutting done without a mat on board. You just need to load it and go with the flow. I’m so excited about this mat-less feature!

In fact, the machine will work like a smart tool to cut shapes like hearts, stars or even confetti leading up to 4 feet with repeated cuts up to 20 feet. High-five technology!
