  1. Ohhhh geez! I have the Maker in Champagne, I wish I had waited to buy it because I bet you will be coming out with even more colors! Frustrating, as there is just no way to keep up! 😕

  2. I love, love, love the pink one. My craft room is done is white, light grey and pink, so the new pink one would look amazing on my desk. I absolutely cannot do any crafting with out my Cricut. Made 32 T-shirts for my family last Christmas and ornaments with their names & a design. What can’t you do with the Explore Air 2? I scrapbook too.

  3. I have a real problem with all these colors. Hobby Lobby had a color assigned to its store, JoAnn Fabrics had a color assigned to its store only. If you really want to match your accessories, they don’t always make them in the color you have. And now they are adding even more colors? If I want to buy the 3 sizes of the press, it only comes in Raspberry. Are them making them all to match a HL color or a JoAnn’s color? I’m sure there are alot of people that just can’t keep buying new colors. And what about the light pad, does it come in all the colors? Personally I don’t want such a mixed color combination. I keep waiting thinking they will eventually get more accessories in other colors. Doesn’t seem to happen. Disappointing to me.

  4. So… I am pretty new and I thought the Maker was basically the latest model. In essence replacing the Air Explore 2. So…my question is..why offer both? Price point? Is there something I need to know about the Air Explore 2??? 😀 Might need a friend for my Maker.

    • Hi. We are still making the Explore Air 2 machines. Think of it like regular vs. luxury cars; both are great and work well. We have the Maker as our “luxury” model that can do so many things like cut crepe paper all the way to leather. Some people don’t need or want the capability to cut fabric, for example, and find the Air 2 completely suits their needs.

  5. I love the persimmon, but am planning to buy the Maker so I can work with fabric (I’m a seamstress). Any idea if the Maker will be offered in Persimmon anytime soon?

  7. I am not a Cricut owner yet, I love the Sunflower color. I’m thinking of getting the Explore Air 2 and was wondering if you all planned on having this color with any of your other tools/ accessories. I’m planning on getting the press and the light pad.

  8. The colors are nice and I have some favorite’s, but I prefer a mixture of the white trimmed in purple of my cricut explore. The colors for me are just a little bit to dramatic! I love color with an accent!

  9. Only one thing…WHERE IS ORANGE?????????? Have been waiting for orange. You have all these pretty colors..but im an orange girl . Please please make it in orange please. Thanks (and i mean orange not peach 😉) thanks

    • Beatrice,
      There is orange–it’s the persimmon one. It’s gorgeous. I have it on my desk and it’s my favorite one.

  10. I just received the Raseberry its pretty but on the pink side vs red side. Hard to see true color on line. Not what I was expecting but the color doesn’t matter, how it preforms matters. I will keep it. Happy crafting…..

  11. I would love a bright white on bright white on bright white!!! Please make one for us girls who love white!!!
