I also like that the Explore can cut smaller images better than my Expression did. I don't think I would have bothered doing a sun this small before.
Having the ability to quickly search for images means that I am using more of the cuts I have available too. The sun is from Pooh and Friends and I hadn't used that cartridge in awhile. The grass is from Paper Doll Dress Up and I probably wouldn't have looked there for grass. The searching function seems to work better than the one on my Gypsy too.
