Default Help - need advice

I am considering the purchase of a cricut machine and am wondering if I should. What can it do? When will I use it? What all is included with the purchase of the machine? Do I need to purchase a lot of accessories? Any more advice??

Thanks!

I like mine. I use it a lot for scrapbooking and when making invitations. It's great for cutting out multiples of letters/numbers. I am making my husband's 40th birthday invites and it's just so easy to cut out 20 numbers (who would want to do all those 40's with regular sizzix or cut out stamped images???!

The biggest expense is additional cartridges. They do go on sale now pretty regularly. I have 3 other friends who also own cricuts, so we share our cartridges, which is really great! We all have 2, so that's like having 8!!!

Good luck with your decision!

Default I love mine...

My DH got me mine for my Birthday last year. It is the reason I got into cardmaking and scrapbooking...I have not looked back. I really love being able to have so many choices and the quantity without hand cutting or using my Sizzix.

My SU demonstrator was jealous b/c I came to stamp day with all my little precut rectangles and they only took me 5 minutes to do!!!
