its CRICUT there are three sizes the baby 6X12, the Expression 24, the create 6X12 with the functions of the expression. YES YOU NEED ONE Which one depends on your needs...but I would suggest Creative Express right now has the expression on from $3something down to $159 and I suggest getting SCAL (sure cuts alot) I cant scrap without em'

A cricut is an electrical die-cutting machine. A cricket is an insect (or an English game). Sorry, couldn't resist.

But, both Cricut and cricket are pronounced the same.

my Mom called me from a trip she was on and said she found a Cricket Outlet. I was super excited until I found out Cricket is a brand of cell phone.

Circuit and Cricket are both common mis-spellings of the word CRICUT, which is pronounced like the bug CRICKET. They are all the same brand. there are 3 different cricut machines (with a 4th coming out soon), and which one you get depends on your needs and price range HTH!

I have the cricut create. I would love the expression, but I just don't have the money for it yet and in this small townhome, a create is about all the room i have plus, i find that the create is about all i need for scrapping. i want the expression for larger jobs like party decorations and vinyl cuttings for our walls.

I have the original "baby bug" Cricut, and wish I had waited and gotten the Expression. The Expression is more expensive - I think I've seen around $250 or so compared to the $125 I paid for my machine a few years back.

There are other machines for die cutting, but I love the Cricut! So much that I'm ready to buy a 2nd bigger machine (the Expression) when it comes down in price. (Which I'm hoping will happen since a new Cricut - the Imagine that prints and cuts images - comes out soon.)

It's spelled...CRICUT Expression...not Circuit Expressions. And it's pronounced like a "Cricket" the bug...that could also be where your BF was getting that from. I have one and though I don't use it nearly enough...I love it! I believe there's a separate thread here just concerning the Cricut so you could get lots of info there and of course on the Cricut.com site as well.

Okay I know the Cricut as a die cut machine. Could the other you are referring to be the supplies line of Cosmo Cricket?

Yep, but if your Cricut starts sounding like a Cricket, call the help line!

Great to hear.. I suppose the cartridges are a fortune ahha.. I never really paid attention to all the machines out there.. although I do have a slice and its sitting collecting dust.. Im assuming its a cadillac version if the slice?
