Lets Craft!

Oh my goodness guys! I don’t know why it took me so long to buy this! I should have jumped on it when it first came out! Have you seen the Machine Tote by Cricut?

I got it in the mail last week, and to be honest I had to clean a space so I was able to take pictures before I opened it! If you are anything like me craft organization isn’t your first priority! I’m telling you right now the Tote by Cricut and the other mystery box I opened will help with that!


Can you believe these beautiful boxes just sat in my living room for over a week unopened? Well they did! My cat loved them, he had his choice of boxes to sleep on every night. He was taller then ever before and had a great view of the living room!
Well I finally took them upstairs today and opened them, and I fell in LOVE!! The pictures I took and the pictures you’ve seen online do this tote no justice, it’s so much more beautiful in real life! Seriously how pretty is this?

It has 2 extremely convenient side zipper pockets which I am going to be using for the 4power cords. The inside is padded too! Last August I took my Cricut on a road trip to TN, and I worried about it the whole time. This summer I won’t have to worry about it because look at this padding!!! I didn’t take any pictures of the machine in the tote, however I will take some later on and I will post them on our Facebook and Instagram pages so make sure you keep your eyes open for those in the future! I truly can’t say enough about the quality of the tote. It is so beautiful. Again, I’m slightly ashamed that I didn’t buy it sooner, if you all could see my craft mess you would agree! I almost forgot to mention that it also comes with a shoulder strap, I likely got a little too excited over that!

So, I thought….. I can’t just have the Machine Tote, I’d better by the Rolling Craft Tote too! How could I have one and not the other??


The details on both of these totes are amazing, and I took almost 140 pictures while I was un-boxing because I was so impressed. I won’t post them all here, but I will post some of my favorites.


Look at the details! The stitching! The logo on the zipper! They went as far as padding the handles for comfort! I was truly impressed! I took about 50 detail pictures as I stated above and these were just a few of my favorites.

The rolling craft tote has so much storage, and it’s laid out brilliantly! Cricut thought about tools, vinyl, mats and so much more when they created this travelling storage system!

12I wish this would have been on the top of the box, and that is my only complaint because when I looked at the tote before finding it I thought the wheels looked a little weird. I even made a FB and Insta post about it. 10 minutes later I found the wheels and the instructions and felt extremely silly!

I know I’ve said this already but I am extremely pleased with both of the totes. The tweed is so pretty in real life, everything I’ve seen online about the totes does not do it justice at all. The details are through the roof! I will proudly carry this around with me, whenever I need to craft on the go! I am really glad I purchased it, and again a little upset I didn’t get it sooner… I’ve learned my lesson for next time!
