So, today is my birthday and I have the opportunity to get myself a birthday present - a Peppermint Cricut Expression with 4 carts that I don't have for $230. I've already got the baby bug, so I'm waffling about whether I "need" the E or not.

What think you? Should I or shouldn't I? Deal or no deal? Comments, opinions, snide remarks?

Happy birthday! The E is very nice and does quite a few things that the baby bug doesn't. Carts are going for around $40.00 now so you'd be getting the machine for $70.00.

First - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

Second - Yes, get it. I was going to ask a bunch of questions like size of LO's, do you have a gypsy, do you find yourself limited with the bug, etc. etc., but just get the E. I love my E!

I think it's a good idea - especially with the carts that are included. Oh Happy Birthday

Happy birthday!

I'm all for getting it! That is a great deal for an E and 4 carts. Especially if you have ever wished you had one to cut something bigger than 6x12. It is so nice to have the option to cut a full sheet.

Well, I don't know if it helps, but I paid $185 for mine with only two carts, so it's like you're paying another $45 for two more carts....if they are ones you like or think you can resell, it's sounds like a deal to me :-)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Want and need? %&%$#? That's the question. I ask myself the same question. I don't use a machine myself, but there are many things I do, that are expensive. I think it's a good deal. The least expensive carts I've seen have been at Michael's on sale at Christmas. They were marked down to $35-$40 per, and almost sold out. So I think your Peppermint Cricut is a great deal with all 4 carts. I hope you had a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Go for it!! Stephanie

What else is on your wish list? If nothing jumps and grabs you, I'd say go for the E. But you must train yourself to use it!!!! I have both the bug and the E. But only use the E now. I think it is an excellent price -- real good deal. Probably because they have come out with the E2, which I have no interest in. Kinda a hybrid of the E and the Imagine. Again, I'd go for it. Happy scrapping and a happy birthday to you.

Depends on whether you think you will use it alot or not! Do you do lots of 12x12 layouts? I personally don't so I just have a baby bug. But it does sound like a good deal, especially if you don't already have those carts. Or would you rather get lots of small stuff with your bday $$? Happy Birthday! Let us know what you decide.

It's a DEAL....

I say go for it. If you find you don't like it enough, you cn resell the carts and then the machine and almost not be out any money.


Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday.

If you are happy only using carts than it's a deal.
