If you’re on the fence about getting that Cricut Access Subscription, this list may help you decide. There are SO many ready made designs you can create with your Cricut Explore Air!
You know I love making my own designs to use with my Cricut Explore, but sometimes if I need to make a real quick craft, I know I can find something amazing with my Cricut Access Subscription. For Week Four of the 24 Week Cricut Series, I’m going over the many reasons you should consider signing up for Cricut Access!
Also note that Cricut Access is for use with the Cricut Explore only, so if you have an older model and this sounds like something you need, you may want to consider upgrading!
No design experience necessary with Cricut Access Projects
I love working with Make it Now Projects because you literally just press a couple buttons. You see how to did that to create the beautiful favor gift boxes you see in the image above. You can use any paper you like and the Cricut pretty much does all the work for you!
Easily Customize graphics in Cricut Access
Once again, this requires little, if any design experience, but you can personalize any Make it Now projects or other graphics in the Cricut Access library like I did with this Boho Feather Decor Project.
Large Graphic Library
Cricut has over 30,000 images that are included in Cricut Access! They’ve also made searching for images so much easier, as you can see in my post, My FAVORITE Updates to Cricut Design Space. Chances are, if you want a certain graphic, Cricut Access will have one included in your subscription. It includes single cut images, 3D projects, multi-layered images, and more! You get instant access to all these images once you sign up.
Huge Font Library
Along with graphics, and projects, Cricut Acess also includes over 370 fonts! I LOVE me some fonts, so this is a major plus for me. If you’re only in it for the fonts, Cricut has a Fonts only Subscription!
Discount on Graphics and Fonts
Cricut has some amazing fonts and graphics that are included in access, but if you see something in the store that you absolutely love (trust me…you will), you will get 50% off of many of the items in the shop with a Premium Subscription and 10% off with a Standard Subscription. Note: The 50% discount doesn’t include items from some licensed companies, so make sure you read what is included.
Discounts on Physical Cricut Products
If the discount on digital products doesn’t get you, then maybe a 10% discount on Physical products might sway you. If you are creating many Cricut projects a month, this subscription you could save on vinyl, mats, and other Cricut supplies.
Exclusive Sales for Cricut Access Members
Along with the everyday savings, you’ll also get notified of exclusive promotions and sales. Once again, if you plan on creating a lot of projects with your Cricut every month, this could really come in handy.
Now that we have some of the benefits of Cricut Access Membership, let’s talk about all the things you can CREATE with Cricut Access.
Easy Party Decor Creation
I think my friend Britni did a fabulous job with her Summer First Birthday Party, and she created much of her decor with Cricut Access projects! Don’t get me wrong, throwing a party is a LOT of work, but at least with Cricut Access, you’ll have much of the design work done for you. I highly recommend searching through the vast collection of graphics and Make it Now projects before planning your next party.
Create Unique Projects
Something I never really thought I would create is jewelry, but the Cricut made that possible. I had a lot of fun making my own design for a Faux Leather Bracelet, but this Butterfly Necklace made with a Cricut Access Project is AMAZING, right??? I just love that you can get creative with already made projects. I’m also loving this Wet Bathing Suit Bag…genius, right?
Easily Create Homemade Gifts
You could literally create everything you need for the perfect gift with designs from Cricut Access. From the Homemade Gift Card to a fun gift like these DIY Dish Towels, Cricut has you covered!
Create Gorgeous Home Decor
I use my Cricut all the time for home decor. I love my Gigantic Floral Vinyl Walls that I created with my own design, but you can easily do the same with a Cricut Access Project. Another fun decoration idea is this Felt Board with a 3D Flower!
So, bottom line…if you use your Cricut Explore often and want to create projects faster, Cricut Access is definitely for you!

How do I give the subscription as a Christmas gift?
I would buy a Cricut Gift Card the amount of a yearly subscription or I believe you purchase Cricut Access and apply the code. If you message customer service, they should be able to help you out 🙂
