I can't believe how quickly the Cricut Expression became the central tool in my scrapping room. I love, love, love it. I'm not very talented in the creative area, but the Cricut allows me to make beautiful, creative and easy scrapbook layouts. It also allows me to make words and pictures for my walls. And... I make gift books for friends and family members, I make all of my greeting cards (talk about saving money), and I understand that I can even etch onto glass. I'm going to help my darling Mom make a gift for someone's 25th Anniversary. She doesn't have a lot of money - and the Cricut Expression is helping me to help her... how can I not LOVE IT? This will become your favorite tool too!!!!
