After I did my unboxing video I decided to test as everyone wants to see what it can really do. I am so excited I can hardley type. I did all this with camera on too. Turned it on for first time. put a 6 inch doily from Artbooking on mat and just to really test it I added a 3" doily thinking it would not work but testing it anyway. They both were perfect!!! and 3 perfect circles 1/4", 1/2" and 1" circles. I will be posting to my blog. It was in 1 try! I was shocked, I didn't have to play around with settings and my paper and stuff.

Here is the video of the first time I turned on my machine and see and hear it cutting.

You should have seen me after the Fed Ex guy dropped it off. After I took his picture I had to sign it and was shaking. I was shaking right after that everyone in a facebook group was waiting for me to get it as I told them it was out for delivery. I came back to tell them I got it and I could not type I was shaking. I realize this is all sounds ridiculous but it is true, my vlog video today you see just how excited I am, I recorded a little on my drove home with my new baby. And then some after I am home and show my baby.Love Love Love

My vlog video is processing and will be ready soon.

I was eagerly anticipating the arrival of a package and when it was delivered by a very handsome young man, and I said "I'm so happy I could kiss you!"

Can't wait to see the new video!!BigGrin

WOW that's great! Was it shipped earlier then expected? I'm waiting on mine and it looks like the payment was taken out of my account so hoping it gets here soon. My date given is 2/27/2014 but hope to see it earlier as I bought it for me for my 60th birthday which is this Friday.

Cricut sent it to me I did not get it from HSN.

Just learned something new as I was playing and cutting. You can choose different colored pens, I knew that nothing new, BUT if you choose the different colors the machine will stop and tell you to add the next color it needs, Or the scoring tool. And it is so easy to change not like before when you have to take the blade housing out.

I didn't know I could get more excited than I already was, waiting for my pens and scoring tool from HSN.

TFS Melody. Looks good. How does the 3" doily cut compare with cutting it on an E/E2? (I forget which one you have). Just curious if you see a difference.Smile

great videos, I must say I am impressed with what I am hearing about the explore, and I am becoming more and more anxious for mine to get here already BigGrin

just wondering are you going to do a video of you playing with the software? I think that's what everyone is waiting with baited breath to see Drool

The scoring tool and pens and blades were out of stock...hopefully they will be available soon. Can you use other style pens or just the ones they showed?

probably because people canceled their orders or their cards were denied or for whatever reason they found stock they did not know they had. dose it have the Anna griffin content and 3 mo subscription?
