Here are the most popular Cricut projects, tips, tutorials, and educational posts from Lela Burris of Organized-ish in 2021.
This is my fourth year working with Cricut as an ambassador and I have really become more confident as a teacher and leader when it comes to Cricut machines and materials this year. I am constantly making my own organization labels, DIY organizers, and fun crafts during my off-time, along with sharing all the tips and hacks I’ve learned along the way. Here are the most popular, most pinned, and most visited Cricut posts of the year.
1. Unboxing The New Cricut Maker 3
This summer was HUGE for Cricut fans, because two new machines came out at the same time. The Maker 3 and the Explore 3. I got my hands on a Maker 3 as quickly as possible and shared the full unboxing and setup process here on the blog. Thousands of other Cricut lovers and I learned how to use this bad boy together, and we are collectively in love.
2. Vintage-Inspired Book Covers
No, those aren’t vintage books at all. I made these minimal book covers out of textured cardstock and Cricut’s Foil Transfer Kit. They make bookshelves look so much less cluttered, and you can customize them however you’d like. I think this might be my favorite Cricut project ever, and I know it’s yours too, because it was shared over 2000 times.
3. Cricut Starter Shopping List
In March I had a whole Cricut beginner series going with posts just for newbies, and this starter shopping list was the instant favorite. I shared exactly what to buy when you’re first starting out with Cricut based on your crafting hobbies and goals. This post remains one of my most popular Cricut posts not just from this year, but from all time!
4. Best Cricut Fonts For Labels
While I do make a lot of crafts with my Cricut machines, the projects I’m making most often are labels for organizing. For two years in a row, my most popular blog post (not just Cricut, but ALL categories) is my Cricut Font Pairing Guide, so this post about the best fonts for labels is a follow-up to that one. It’s been cycling Pinterest all year and is about to catch up to the Pairing Guide’s stats.
5. Scrap Vinyl Projects & Storage
As a Cricut crafter, we end up with a lot of leftover scraps, right? I’m clearly not the only one who saves scraps for future projects, because this post with 10 ideas for using vinyl scraps was one of the most visited Cricut posts of the year. And tied with nearly the exact same amount of views is this post about how to store and organize material scraps.
