Has anyone gotten ahold of the list of bloggers who have or will have the Explore? Scrapalette stated in another post of mine that she would try to get it, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet. Does anyone know who they are? I know Tater Tots & Jello, Obsessed with Scrapbooking, Melody Lane--not sure who else. Unsure

I would think they could as soon as they get their machine. Joy from Obsessed with Scrapbooking did an out-of-the-box video just showing everything that comes in the box. Hopefully soon! Smile Smile

Is Joy the only one that has made a video? I went to these blogs and looked for updates but have found nothing new that is not already out there. I don't see any one cutting with it. I understand not everyone can be as excited as me, but I just don't see much excitement. Come on bloggers show us a little something.

pc must be holding them all hostage. They all are posting the same stuff and still no action videos.

Let 'em go PC. You sold out at launch, so ransom has been paid!

I google daily and go back 10 - 12 pages...... there isn't much happening.... after the party it seems that 90 of the 100++ bloggers have gone poof :-).I wonder where their excitement is?

Its odd because if I had been given such royal treatment AND a free machine... I would have been posting like crazy. It looks like a fabulous machine, so there must be some external/personal reason (like real work or family getting in the way) as to why they aren't posting.

Because the scrapbooking market has faded hugely, many companies are having to reinvent themselves to stay alive. The bloggers are not scrapbookers...... they are a new demographic for a hobby that has lost huge numbers. Most of these gals are young and have young children. They don't have the time that the PC MB people have to craft and play with their toys. If my DIL is any indication of what life if like for a 30+ year old mom, the bloggers won't have much to post about a new toy until their kids are about 18 ........ lolol....... Certainly not on a daily or weekly basis.....

ETA: I also am happy to see that just because the bloggers were given a free toy, that they don't feel beholding to the company to get out there and advertise for them ASAP and as often as possible..... I find that refreshing!

I LOVE yours, you not only enhanced my excitement but I know I can open my box and play away with all that you have shown us.

I can't buy that as an excuse. These people are also successful bloggers. That takes time. They have to produce content, write it up, post it.

But for a lot of these ladies, their blogging is their job. I see them posting a lot and I don't buy that "they don't have time to craft and play with their toys". Smile

Please post links for us. TIA

ETA: I just read you didn't know how to post a link. Highlight the URL in the browser address bar, copy and then paste here....... Right click for copy and paste commands in some browsers..... Not sure which browser you are using or I could give more specific directions.

I saw a post and video on SVGcuts. here is the link. I really liked the video - it must have been made before they got their Explore, perhaps they just had the software???

One of the bloggers.....Courtney Lane Designs is giving a Cricut explore away....you have to make a CTMH order to enter....I wonder if she is giving hers away. If she has to buy one....how many CTMH orders does she need to get to break even....


All the new bloggers seem to have lots of advertising for tons of stuff on their blogs. These are not the blogs that started up because of Cricut...they already have followers and provocraft is just wanting to cash in on that. Not sure how that is going to work though as they are all about the finished project rather than a product they used to make it.

The make it now projects seemed to have been made by some of these bloggers,so maybe that is where their obligation ended. Anyway I would have never found the bloggers ....kinda fun and interesting to know crafting goes on....everything comes around again. Good time to be alive....

Yes, Maureen, this video was done before SVG Cuts actually had the machine. Leo said he would do another video of the Explore cutting when he receives it. Smile

Also found this: Katie Adams


She 2 videos- i)opening the explore --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYvpzkLXq6w

and ii)making a card---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbEX8fEhL2s

She has a blog: http://www.thecraftyblogstalker.com , but I haven't found anything on her blog in regards to the X, maybe someone else can.

ETA: at first I wondered if she was just a customer who got the X early (yes, people have started to receive the XWoot) because I couldn't find anything on her blog but then I found this: http://ink361.com/app/users/ig-47875289/photos

so she went to the reveal party.

Looks to me that existing cricut owners are using and posting about their new explore...but I don't see any new posts from those bloggers listed above (excluding Joy & Melody Lane...of course, their stuff is wonderful)....just saying....

Without a doubt, if it weren't for Melody Lane's vids and blog, it would take me forever to figure it out and I'd probably send it back even though I love the writing feature. IMHO PC should put Melody on their payroll for doing such an outstanding job in selling their product.
