Cricut Explore

Yesterday my Cricut Explore arrived but I didn't have much time to play. I have it hooked up using the Cricut bluetooth adapter and a bluetooth adapter. 
My Explore came from Craftsulove and came with...

a bag,
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...

You also get 2 weeks free library access.

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.
