Default Cricut AND Silhouette???

Does anyone have both? Do you use both? I love the idea of being able to cut any font on my computer with the silhouette. I have a cricut and about 50 cartridges. I don't want to buy more carts to get more fonts....

I can only speak for the Silhouette, I have the older model, not the new Cameo, but the reason I went with a Silhouette, is exactly as you say- you can cut any font, any size or style. The ability to weld letters to make words & greetings is ace. Also, remember that there are many 'dingbat' fonts available, where you have images instead of letters. I have masses of them now, and can cut things like flourishes, clocks, hands, you name it, the chances are someone has created a dingbat font. Urban fonts, DAFont are both good safe sites.When I bought mine, about 5 years ago now, the price was roughly the same as for 3 alpha sets for a Red Sizzix, so it was a no-brainer really. Also, with sites like UKScrappers forum, you can get loads of info/tutorials, and when you have been a forum member for a month, access to all the cutting files the members share- literally hundreds.

I have both and do not care about my Cricut anymore. I really struggled with the Cricut. For me the Cameo Silhouette is sooooo much more user friendly. You do have to know somethings about a computer but just the basics and you are good to go. And you dont have to worry about buying cartridges and then you are limited to what Cricut allows you to do with them. Anything you can imagine you can find or create on your computer to use with the Cameo.

I have both also, and like Stampnf1n I don't use my cricuts any more, I know very little about computers but found the software easy to learn. I love the fact that if I can imagine it, I can create it with the cameo. I love my cameo and I use mine almost everyday.
