DIY COLORING PAGES WITH THE CRICUT EXPLORE

Hey Everyone! Ken here with another Ken's Kreations! So I always have little kiddos wanting to come play in my craft room with me, and i just adore having them. Sometimes I am on a time crunch and need to have something to occupy their time while I am finishing my project. Well I found something that my CRICUT EXPLORE does just amazingly!! 

In this video I show you how you can create these custom DIY coloring pages using your CRICUT EXPLORE and CRAYOLA FINE TIP MARKERS. You can use either Cricut Library images or SVG files. For this project I used PPBN MEMBER ONLY EXCLUSIVE SET. However I highly recommend using Cricut Library Images which are already layered and make this process very easy! The best way to get access to over 25,000 images is to subscribe to their CRICUT SUBSCRIPTION PLAN INFORMATION. Here is some examples of the coloring sheets I made and then I have made a youtube video on how you can make your own!!

Here is A Step-By-Step video on how to make your own Coloring Pages using your CRICUT EXPLORE and CRAYOLA FINE TIP MARKERS. Below that you will see all the images I made to show you how they turned out!







SUPPLY LIST FOR THIS PROJECT:

Machine: CRICUT EXPLORE

CRICUT EXPLORE VS. CRICUT EXPRESSION 2

So one of the main questions I get on my YouTube channel is on my comparison videos. Of course by now I am sure many of you have seen how I compared the SILHOUETTE CAMEO to the CRICUT EXPLORE. Well I started to get a ton of requests asking me what I thought of the CRICUT EXPLORE compared to the CRICUT EXPRESSION 2. Now I have personally owned both of these machines and I knew that the CRICUT EXPLORE was the best machine to go with, however I wanted to make a video to show my subscribers exactly why. So in this (long) video I go over:

1) What each machine comes with
2) The writing features of each machine
3) The cutting feature and compare the cuts
4) Compare the designing program (Cricut Craft Room and Design Space)
5) Final Thoughts


Here is a Shorter 10 Minute Version for the weak of heart! LOL!!



After making this video I have to say I cannot believe I EVER used Cricut Craft Room. I became so frustrated with this program all over again. It reiterates the fact that Design Space and the CRICUT EXPLORE  are the next generation of cutting machine and software for the american crafter! It is my final verdict to 100% buy or upgrade to the CRICUT EXPLORE!
