Default I'm stressing!

I've been wanting to get a cricut for a long time and now I have a staff appreciation project due and I really need to buy one this weekend. Because they are so expensive I'm afraid to buy the wrong one. Can any of you help me pick which one to buy?

Since you have so little time, is there a scrapbooking store near you that - for a fee - allow you to use theirs? That way you might be able to "try out" different die cutters before you commit your money.

Oh I love mine but it is 4 years old. At the school from which I retired they have the big one and the teachers love it. Did you know that if you buy it for work use it is tax deductible????

Default cricut

I guess it all depends on what you need in the way of what you are cutting out....
If you need something really large then the cricut expression is the best bet...it is the most expensive because you need it before it can go on sale, if you need something smallish the the regular cricut is good..the cartridges are expensive....or there is always the sizzix big kick....more limited dies but will work too

I adore my cricut
If you have AC Moore near, they usually run the best prices on Expression
Too bad you do not have enough time to order on line. Usually way cheaper

I know I'll use it over and over. The last time I had to do a poster I went to the local scrapbook store and spent hours punching out letter after letter.

I bought the expression. I love it. My mom bought her's to use for school. She can cut a bunch of things all at once and save a ton of time.
