My boyfriend is in the market for a new motorcycle and in order to sweeten the deal for me he has agreed that I should/need a Cricut machine (I'm pushing for the Expressions model)

Just wanted to know if anyone has had a nightmare with theirs or if everyone is totally in love??

i don't have a first-hand review, but my fella's mother has one (he would say: "oh, that printer-looking thing?  it has those funky little cartridge things, right?  she's ALWAYS using that!"  Tongue) and she loves it.  i don't know which model she has exactly, but i know she's never had a complaint, and i can at least testify that the scrapbooks she makes always look gorgeous.

I'd love to find out more about these machines too.  I found the best deal so far at Walmart.  I'm also wondering if people have any recommendations for cartridges.  Which ones are nice?

will you take me to gang practice? yis?

i would say if he is getting a motor cycle, you should push for a pazzles machine (technically i have the wishblade, but from what i hear, the pazzles is more user friendly)

the cricut is awesome, and i am actually going to get one (just for the DIsney stuff) but after a while 30-60 for a cartridge everytime i wanna change fonts is ALOT more than the 450 my wishblade cost...

i think im back....9 months almost to the day but i miss art, and i missed you guys!

Well i did get the Cricut expressions and I believe my crafting addiction has reached a whole new level!! I went to work 3 days in a row with bags under my eyes, my co-workers asked if I was ok, I said "I'm just tired up all night playing with my new cricut" They just don't understand the joy of a "paper cutting machine" (as one non-craft person referred to it as)

I did get it at Wal-mart b/c it was $100 cheaper then Michaels and i didn't want to buy it online in case something was to go wrong and I had to return it.  I live in Canada so Wal-mart and Michaels were my only opinions for getting my hands on a bug.

Now I'm trying to convince my BF that I need a cuttlebug to emboss with....did I mention I have a crafty-tool problem??

I got one when a new software program came out that allowed me to use all the fonts and dingbats on my computer. I have a mac and that's always been a problem with the digital diecut machines. Anyway, there's a program called Sure Cuts a Lot that lets you use what you've already got. No buying cartidges. I make lots of files to cut on it too. It's a great machine.

I love my cricut!  The BEST place for cheap carts is EBay!  I have gotten a few for $30 each.  MY favorite is the Bags, Tag & More.  I also got Doodle Charms but haven't really gotten to play around with that one.  I really wanted the zoo one with all the animals, but that one is HARD to get!

Put me on the list of those who love their Cricut.  At first I bought a lot of cartridges but then I went to my local scrapbooking store and found out that they rent out the cartridges.  No more having to buy carts for me.   Grin

Now I can't imagine cardmaking or scrapbooking without my cricut.
