How to use Cricut for your business: branding

April 30, 2020

In the wonderful world of crafts you might be thinking of how it can benefit your business! Well I’ve teamed up with a few friends to show you how we use our Cricut machines and accessories to promote and aid in the growth of our businesses. You can find the links to their blogs at the bottom of this post!

I use my Cricut machines for everything and anything. I love using cricut for my blog because it helps me in so many ways. I.e. photo props, signs, recipe cards, clothing, kids activities, etc.

One big thing that Cricut has helped me with is branding my sites identity. I am Kay’s Daily Insight.

My blog is my job and I want to share it with everyone! So I’ve made a beautiful sign to hang in my room and a shirt I can wear anywhere!
