My Explore came from Craftsulove and came with...
one cutting blade and housing,
one drawing,writting pen adapter,
one 12x12" cutting mat,
a simple guide and a selection of materials—including cardstock, iron-on, vinyl and two Duck Tape® Sheets
I decided to go with the bundle...

Today I had a little play.
One of the things I was hoping for was the Explore being able to do intricate cuts on small images. So I cut a doiley out with patterned paper. It was 2 1/2 inches across and cut perfectly.
So I then decided to decorate my Explore with vinyl. I was very impressed with the cut. The small clocks are only 0 .5 cms in height and came out perfect.
I have a lot to learn on how much it can do but I will be posting on here regularly to show you what I have achieved.
