View Full Version : Anyone have a Cricut machine?

If so, which one? I want to get one to make cards and for school projects for the kids. Possibly to do some minor scrapbooking too (I stopped after DD was born due to lack of time). So far, I'm liking the Expressions one. Amazon seems to have a best deal. Or does Joann or Michaels go cheaper with a coupon? Does anyone use the Sure Cuts a Lot software? And where can I get cheap cartridges? I love the concept of the whole thing, but the idea of paying $50 for a cartridge does not sit well with me.

I have a Silhouette that I love. I've had mine two years and they've improved since then. It's the same idea as a Cricut, but uses the fonts on your pc instead of cartridges.
You can pay to access their images, but 90% of what I do is letters and basic shapes so it has worked great for me.

I have a cricut. I received it as a gift and I think my mom bought it from ebay, availibility was a huge issue at the time. I plan on getting sure cuts a lot, but the time issue has been my holdback here.

The coupons usually exclude the Cricut products from what I've seen. I don't own one.
There is a blog I read on occasion that recommends some tips and tricks though....here's the link:

I have one and use it for scrapbooking, making the girls' chore chart, cards and assorted other things. I think I have 3 or 4 font cartridges so I can mix things up a bit. :)

Well, I have one. I bought it, new in box, at Salvation Army last summer. It's still in the box - just haven't had a chance to use it.
I know I've seen cartridges at Big Lots. I don't know how the price compares though. And, one of our local scrapbook stores rents the cartridges for $5 for a week. I think that's a great deal if you want a specialty one for a particular project.
