So handy!!! (20 May 2008)
I received my Cricut for Christmas last year. It has been a godsend! I love the versatility and size of the machine. It can cut through cardstock, patterned paper, chipboard, etc. It is very easy to use and there are a variety of cartridges that you can purchase. The only slight issue I have is the cutting mats. They don't last very long, but are easy enough to purchase.
