- As part of the Cricut Design Team, I have created a series of party projects that you can create using the Cricut Explore™ and I am sharing my first collection today. It’s called the Heart of Gold Party Collection!
- We are now stocking the new Cricut Explore™ machine and accessories in The TomKat Studio Shop! We have a special package deal going on right now for the stock we have on hand (limited so hurry)!
- I am heading to London in a few weeks to speak at the Cricut Explore™ Launch/Press Event! I’m so, so excited and I’ll be sharing more details soon!
What is a Cricut Explore™, you ask?
It is a design-and-cut system! The Cricut Explore™ system blends an electronic cutting machine with Cricut Design Space™, the free online design software, to help you make polished DIY projects. Create by using the hundreds of ready-to-make projects, the 50,000+ images from the Cricut® library or by uploading your own images. You can even use the Cricut® cartridges you already own!

I have had so much fun using the Cricut Explore™ to easily create adorable party decor! You may have a seen a few projects here and there, like these adorable pink bows and Kate’s “sweet dreams” banner, but I am so thrilled to “officially” share our first party collection with you all today. I love how it turned out! Like most of my designs, it is simple and clean and can work for a variety of celebrations! I used my favorite “tomkat” heart shape through the projects, making it super simple to re-create this party setup with just a few supplies. Keep in mind, you can create my party projects and use any colors you choose! Just buy the colors of cardstock that works for your theme. This theme would be perfect in pinks and red for Valentine’s Day, too!
Cricut Design Space makes it so simple to make these projects! You simply choose a project, gather the list of supplies and hit the magic button, “Make It Now”. Everything is formatted and sized so no need to make any adjustments, just follow the easy instructions and start feeding your paper/mat through the machine!
My projects for this party theme include:
- Cupcake Wrappers + Flags
- Celebrate Banner
- Embellished Paper Party Cups
- Gift Wrap Embellishments
- Heart Confetti
- Heart Notecards
- Bow Invitation Wrap
- Heart Pillow Boxes
- Heart Treat Boxes
- Heart Tote Bag
Projects and images range from $.99 to $2.98.
My head is spinning with project ideas for this incredible machine and I can’t wait to share more projects we’ve completed and come up with more great ideas to make life easier! From school projects to home decor (and parties, of course) you can look forward to fresh, new ideas from The TomKat Studio using the Cricut Explore™ machine!
If you are ready to purchase your Cricut Explore™, now would be a great time! With every machine purchase, we are including a FREE Cricut Iron-On Roll in Gold and a FREE white tote bag so you can start by making this adorable heart tote project! (while supplies last)
