If you are a first-time craftsman, I think you will find it very easy to use. Cricut Joy is great for vinyl, as smart vinyl doesn't need a mat. And Cricut Maker is perfect for paper because I can load full sheets of 12×12 sheets of scrapbooking paper. Joy's selection is more limited, and Cricut doesn't currently offer a bulk pack of Joy pens like they do for Maker.
Cricut Joy cuts, writes and draws for you so you can bring happiness to practical, everyday projects, from organizing your entire home to adding your personal touch to almost anything. You would have to print on full-size paper and then cut it to fit, so it went against his vision that Cricut Joy was designed for less complicated projects that could be prepared in any room in the house. Yes, your creator can make Cricut Joy card designs in Design Space, but it will require a lot more work on your part. Find out how having both Cricut Joy and Maker keeps you ready for any project without wasting time or materials.

The brilliant team at Cricut knew they needed to find a simple solution for quick projects and eliminated that goal from the park.
Both machines run on Cricut's proprietary Design Space software, and both machines require a Cricut Access subscription to get the most out of their manufacturing experience. But before you leave the next IG post in your feed of a Cricut Joy project, read these 5 reasons why you might want to own BOTH machines. Whether you're a hardened craftsman, a craft enthusiast or someone just starting out, Cricut is the right tool to help you share your creativity and bring your projects to life. These specific materials feature a thicker backing that allows Cricut Joy to easily cut or draw them without the need for a mat.
I consider myself a bit of a craftsman at heart and I have long wanted to get my hands on a Cricut, but I had been putting it off because I wasn't sure I was using it enough to justify the purchase. You can also design your cards in Design Space if you needed a card for an occasion that Cricut Access doesn't have.
