I'd be embarrassed to post what I've made. My pages are all kind of boring. I'm not sure if you know about it but on pinterest you can find lots of free svg files to use so no ink scape.
I found a new cricut expression nib on eBay. I question the seller what firmware it had. All he could tell me was that it was version 1. Do you know if all version 1s have the correct firmware?
