I truly feel that each of us is different in how we like to create. That said, I have watched my scrap booking friends use the Cricut and the other die cutters like Cuttlebug. They all work well, I like the idea of buying individual images that are kept on my computer and the ease of changing sizes and also using the fonts that are already on my computer. The Cameo is so easy and so versatile and it's the newest techie thing. Glad that we all find something that is best for us! Enjoy the end product....... the creativity!!
