I just recently jumped on the Cricut bandwagon. I got a Baby Bug clearance priced at Joanns for about $30. It came with a couple of cartridges, and then I bought a couple (I now have 50+) - but the one cartridge that hooked me was the Elegant Edges cartridge. It had virtually every single Nestie shape that I ever wanted. And I could make it in any size I wanted. I will never buy a die cut again. Ever. Don't need to. And I've gotten to the point where I can whip out a cut almost as quickly as I could run one through my Cuttlebug.
I just wish I had researched the electronic cutters before getting involved with the Cricut. But - it is what it is. For now I love my Cricuts.
But still use my Cuttlebug. I will keep the Nesties that I have, but definitely won't be adding any more.
