So tiny you can hold it in the palm of your hand..

Have you ever found yourself wishing you could cut designs without a mat, or longer than 24”?

Are you still trying to decide if the Joy is a necessity?

Still waiting to pick which machine is right, but never used a Cricut cutting machine before?

If you already have a Maker or Air 2, Cricut Joy opens additional creative possibilities with unique features and is the perfect companion for quick, mat-free projects and long cuts.

Compact & Portable: Cricut Joy is Cricut’s smallest smart cutting machine ever! It fits in a cubby or looks great on a counter. Cricut Joy packs away easily and sets up instantly, making it super easy to move from room to room AND the perfect pair with the Cricut Mini EasyPress! Not having to transport a mat, combined with the smaller material size, makes the whole system compact and portable. No craft room required.

5 little ways:


  1. Looking to tidy up your kitchen? Do you have an everyday routine, that might get you a little more motivated if organized? I get asked a lot how I label certain items around my house, and a lot of people don’t realize implementing a Cricut machine in your life, can seriously open up so many opportunities for projects! I recently purchased an abundance of containers to store my daily protein shakes + more, and I knew this was the PERFECT opportunity to dive into my FIRST project with the Cricut Joy. You won’t believe where I did this….my kitchen counter! No mats, no mess! I simply grabbed my laptop, Joy + materials and placed it on the counter. Using specific Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl - Permanent in white, I was able to label my entire container collection making for a whole new look to my everyday routine!
  2. OOPS! You forgot its his birthday, TOMORROW, and you can’t make it to the store in time. HELLO, Cricut Joy! With the new card mats and insert cards in an abundance of colors, the Cricut Joy just saved your life! It’s time to hide in your room, pull out the Joy pens and put her to work!
  3. Just because you can use the Cricut Joy without a mat, doesn’t mean it’s not an option! So I have a bride that wants a few shirts made up for her bridle party; small + simple. Joy materials include iron-on! I whipped up a simple design in Design Space, and was able to cut on one roll of iron-on - pulled out my mini press, and ironed on each design to the pockets of the shirt!
  4. Your best friend gifted you the infusible ink coasters as a wedding gift; she clearly knows your love for crafting! Introducing the exclusive Cricut Joy Infusible Ink transfer sheets + markers! Draw a design using Infusible Ink Pens or Markers on laser copy paper, grab your coasters.Transfer design with Cricut EasyPress or heat press that reaches 400°.The results are bright, beautiful, seamlessly smooth transfers that never flake, peel, wrinkle, or crack!
  5. Summer is almost here! You have a few tumblers lying around that you’d like to bring along on your beach trips this season, but you want to label them to make sure they don’t get mixed up! This is where Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl - Permanent, comes in handy, AGAIN! With so many color options, the design opportunities are endless! Design your name (or others) in Cricut Design Space, choosing the font to your liking, and measuring properly to fit the cup. Simply insert your vinyl (with or without) mat and cut your design. Using Cricut Transfer Tape, weed, then adhere to design, and simply transfer to your tumblers; voila!

A beginners dream, and an experts most wanted addition to his/her collection.

If this quarantine has taught me anything, it’s how to perfect my crafting, thats for sure!

Cricut Joy is the perfect companion to quickly and easily personalize anything with one cut and one color, in 15 minutes or less. It is fun, functional, and simple to use. Practical, everyday projects have never been more accessible or easier!
