a Cricut and another electronic die cutter? Do you use your cricut still? I love my cricut however, i get frustrated with its inability to cut small and/or intricate shapes. I am considering a Cameo and was curious how many of you have both and use them both?

I have a Cricut and a Slice - use both of them. Was using the Slice more, but now have Cricut Craft Room and using it more. Cricut put two more free full-cartridges in my account today as a complete surprise.

One is "FRIGHT" and I forgot the other name but I like it! I think I have about 4 free ones from in the past month or so.

I don't know why and it doesn't make sense but I seem to be getting more delicate cuts with my cricut since I got CCR. I'm cutting things I couldn't cut out at all before.

Another cute one added to my account today is called "Gears".

I saw the new carts as well! Haven't had a chance to look at them as I was working on some specific projects and being very focused. I have just been wondering if other machines would be able to do small and detailed cuts better than the cricut..... especially when purchasing digital cut files that are not ProvoCraft....

I have a cricut expression and the original silhouette. I use both and since I have started watching silhouette tuts and have learned to download fonts from the internet, I foresee me using my silhouette even more. My silhouette cuts intricut(sp?) shapes much better than my cricut,but I have cartridges that I really like so I am keeping both (for now).

Cricut for now. Not interested in another tool.

My Cricut died. Sounds like I should try the Cameo.

I have a Silhouette, but I've always been attracted to the Slice.

I own both machines and I use them both often. I scrap daily and I switch between the two. I like them for different reasons. I will never get rid of my cricut because I invested quite a bit into my cart library and my Cameo I pay as I go. The Cameo cuts more intricate things, but I love welding things on my Gypsy and cutting away from a computer on the Cricut.

I all of a sudden feel that I am not alone in having a cutter and wanting another one..... For a while I thought I had a gimmie sickness!

I'm thinking i'd like a cameo but I'm not quite to the point where I'd break the bank to get one just yet. So i'll still use my cricut E and be happy till that time i just have to have a Cameo

This is how I have been feeling. I like my Cricut and will most likely always have one, so I am trying to decide if I need a Silhouette or a Cameo....

I have a Slice and a Cricut. I have to say I like my Cricut best. I am scared, leery, lazy (?) of connecting my cutting machine to my computer. As to intricate cuts....I found that the type of paper you use goes a long way in making neat cuts. I love CorDinations paper.

I don't have an electronic Die Cutter but I do have the Cricut and a Big Shot. I guess the difference to me is simply the image. Whichever one has the image I want is the one I use lol Cricut is better if say I'm doing a Halloween album, I can cut a bunch of images from an all Halloween cartridge and play around with, move them etc and already have many cut to choose from. The Big Shot is more like a quick access type thing, like suddenly wanting a single ornate edge photo mat or something to that extent

I have been saving my pennies for a long time to get my Cricut. I got it this summer and wish I had gotten the big shot. It's on my list next.
