I totally agree about how some of the dies are just the best for the edges!! I think of Spellbinders sealing the edge nice! haha
I bought a used Cricut Create and absolutly love it!! But also agree that I think no matter which machine you go with, your going to experience at times a rough edge or something because you don't get blade setting or pressure just right for type of paper or card stock being used. I would love a have a Silhouette too if I can find a good deal on a used one. Let me know if anybody has a good working one they want to sell.

As far as the Cricut cartridges taking up space(other comments above)...that's only because the collectors want them. I have found out quickly there are only a few cartridges that are needed to really have a huge selection of patterns. So if I end up buying anymore than those it's my own fault for lacking self control. haha I really love what I have and can use it along with my stamping and other projects.
Paige, I had to laugh when I read your reply about self control. If that is the case, then my Cricut friends are ALL addicts....LOL. I use the Pazzles Inspiration and Martha Stewart punches....depending on circumstances at crops. Sometimes, there is room form my machine while at other times, there isn't...and so I use the punches. When I got my cutting machine, I didn't throw the babies (punches) out with the bath water. As a result, I have been redoing my craftroom to make room for MY addictions...papercrafting, sewing, knitting, and painting...an all purpose room full of addictions!
