I am also curious about cutters. I currently have a Cricut personal. I love it, but wish I would have gotten a bigger one. I am also using SCAL2 on my cricut, and love that. Im wanting to upgrade, but am cruious....if I buy an new Cricut...can I use SCAL2 on it, or would I be better off buying a machine that I can you SCAL2 on or update to SCAL3. I want to be able to cut bigger than te 6x12 I am able to cut now. Any advice?
