Yes that is correct, I got bit by the Cricut. Like most bugs I tried to avoid it for a very long time, I researched and read everything I could about the little critter. I used to go to its website every day to read what the humans were saying about it....
I already had 2 die cutters, both really fine. They weren't bugs and very red. So why on earth would I "need" another?
The little scrappers out there were raving, they were wild about the Cricut they were selling off everything all for the Cricut. I was so unsure but took the big plunge and bought one of these amazing bugs. It exceeded my wildest dream. It cut clean, it had amazing features. I simply type in what I want, what size, set the dials and I cannot help but sit and watch the magic begin.
Any negative thing I read is long forgotten now that I have my bug. I can do anything in scrapbooking I want...nothing holds me back. I get titillated when I buy another cartridge or as they call them in the craft CARTS.
So yes, I have been delightfully bitten & loving every second of it!

I'm what you might call a budget scrapbooker. I would rather spend money on tools that let me make many embellies rather than spend money on stickers and such. I had been researching Cricut for some time. I already have quite an extensive collection of another die cut machine. I had spent a lot of money on each of the dies (that were only one size). I'm a very lucky girl!! My Dear Father In Law knows that I LOVE to scrapbook. We both have a love for shopping and he's usually my shopping buddy. We usually include one of the local scrapbooking stores in our trips. And I have his box of pictures that I've been scrapping so he bought me one. I love the way my letters can be small, medium or huge!! I haven't bought any other cartridges because I'm still using all the different features. I'm amazed that one cartridge can do so many things. Between the different sizes, the fonts can be cut in oval tag shape, in a sign shape, shadow and outline. The different features also applies to the shapes too! Don't get me wrong, I've scoped out the other cartridges and have a few on my wish list.

The Cricut is the most amazing die cutting machine that has single handly taken the scrapbooking industry to the next level. No more getting fustrated because you can't find the right embelllishment or letter font for a layout!!! Wiith the right cartridge you can cut out your own using the colors and papers that you want. It is easy to use so you will make your titles and embellishments right out of the box!!
Yes, I will say that the Cricut is pricey but you will get hours of enjoyment out of it and will save you time and fustration in creating your perfectly wonderfully layout. Once you have the Cricut, you will not imagine how you lived without it! Also, once you get the Cricut, either the baby Cricut or Expression, you will be happy to know that all the cartridges will work on either machine. The cartridges that Cricut has out now are amazing and I love them all.
Recomment the Cricut to my friends, oh yes!! I have recommended this to total strangers that I meet in scrapbooking and craft stores.

This is absolutely the best item I have ever had for scrapbooking! It has become something I cannot live without! I love the different features on the cartridges, and couldn't live without the software now that I have that.
The only issue I think I ever have is that I use it too much and my mats get used a lot, so I replace them often.
I would recomend this to any scrapper, new or pro! It is easy to use and there are endless possibilities to what you could do with it.
If you are someone who does a lot of craft projects outside of scrapping, (ie with kids school porjects and so on) I might recomend getting the large machine. It is nice to be able to cute the larger items. For me it wasn't really worth the extra money because I wouldn't use it that much.
The cartridges have a great variety of items, but they are a bit pricey, so pace yourself on buying those!!

Yes this is true I finally caught the bug! As a college student that just does scrapbooking and paper crafting as a hobby I put buying this product off for quite awhile. I looked at reviews, looked as less expensive die-cut machines and none that I found measured up to the Cricut. I started watching infomercials about it, started hitting up the website and did alot of thinking. One day it dawned on me! I am going into Early Childhood Education, most centers require scrapbooks to be kept and this would be amazing to make bulliten boards, name tags for cubbies and chairs and my mom passed along that any supplies I buy for it would be tax deductible so I took my college graduation money and got one. I opened the box set it up and made 5 cards and 4 layouts that same day!!! I love it!! Can't wait to save up money for more carts.!!!!

i love my cricut , this is the first one i ever bought, kept looking at them and starting watching the craft shows that displayed the cricut. bought mine over a year ago when they first came out and starte withtwo carts.
have used this over and over again have tons of cards,and used on my scrap pages, saves a lot of money buying sticker and embie. because you can cut them out ,color them in anyway you want to. for cards and displays.
have done sone small gift packages with the flowers, and stars,animals to dress up themes for birthday. . and for my grandchildren for school .
they love it also. my dgd uses it when she comes up to make cards and do her scrap pages.

I bought the Cricut because I was tired of investing and yes, wasting my money on sticker letters and cardboard accents. Let's face it, how many z's, w's, q's, etc do we really need? This way I get the exact color, pattern, and size of the letters or accents I need to make my layout absolutely perfect. Don't wait for anything else, this is the product you need. It is self-explanatory and a GREAT investment. Just sit down and add up all the money you have spent on sticker letters alone....pretty scary, huh? I would recommend this to a friend or anyone that is getting into scrapbooking or who is an old pro like me. You won't be disappointed.

I got this machine as a present for Mother's day and I just wish the cartridges would be a little less expensive, but anyway I think at the same time is worth the expense. It just made my life easier and it cuts whatever you want and is really easy to use. You can switch from one pattern to another one in just a click and you can even put the machine in paper saver mode that way you don't waste paper, it is incredible what you can do with this machine, I can fix cards in minutes and I just need to add some embellistments to it and all done!! I am really happy I have it! I will recommend this product to everyone, excellent!!!!

I don't know what else I can say about the Cricut! It's such an essential tool for any scrapbooker or card-making enthusiast. The only problem is how addictive it is! If you shop around you can get some good deals online for the cartridges. For all that you can cut and create with each cartridge, I think in the end you will save money. I have had mine now since December and haven't changed the blade on it. The blade is cheap to replace, I think around $6 or 7. The mats to cut on are around $10 and I use mine forever before I replace them. Check out the Cricut "board" in the forums for ever more tricks and tips!

I am just brand new to scrapbooking - and after barely scratching the surface of all the pages in the gallery I was hooked. Just had to get a cricket machine to create the gorgeous layouts that everyone has. Pulled Cricket out of the box, read the easy 1 page instructions, loaded in the printing cartridge that came with it, stuck a paper on the cutting mat, choose the letters/words I needed, choose the size I wanted, pressed cut - watched in fascination as it cut just the letters I needed for the page, unloaded the paper, peeled off the letters and voila! So simple. So amazing. Love it!
It is on of the best investments the I have made. I am on a budget and I was going crazy when I saw it. I would go to different stores and visit it, while I was putting so much money away perpay check to by mine.
I use mine all the time, for traditional scrapping, cards and crafts. Now that I am learning how to do digital scrapping I love to use it to make it a hybrid layout.
I you like to do almost anything with paper this is the machine for you.
Come one, get bitten by "The Bug." Resistance is Futile.

I finally, finally bought my Cricut after eyeing for over a year in the store and I am so thrilled with it; couldn't be happier. The things you can do with it are almost limitless. I love being able to make my own diecuts and not having to choose from the so-so amount available at Archivers..and I can always get them in the size I want! This machine is so much fun and I have several friends who are now insisting I bring it every time we scrap. I just wish the cartridges were a bit cheaper... GREAT PRODUCT!!

My husband bought me the cricut as a present and I love it. He couldn't have picked out a better gift. I was worried that it would be hard to use, but it isn't. It is very easy to get the hang of and figure out in no time. I can do anything with it with the push of a button. I like that I can do all of my titles for my pages. Its graphics are amazing and there are so many things you can do with it. Its an amazing machine and well worth the money. I would suggest any scrapbooker pick it up and give it a try.

Well, I must say that this is one of the greatest inventions ever!! I absolutly love the cricut. At first I was uneasy of buying something so big, and then my husband made the plunge for me. I came home from work and it was on the counter. What a great man he is!!! This machine has made my life so much easier. It doesn't just work great for scrapbooking, but also kids.
I have 3 children in grammer school and it helps with their projects and the classroom parties. I really love this machine.

However when my honey found out I had been saving for it, and he felt that I deserved to not wait but get it now!! I love you honey. I just got it 2 days ago and I love it as I knew I would. I'd watched videos, anything I could find. To learn how and what it will do. Every review your reading here is great, you'll wonder why you waited so long!!

My cricut has lived up to all my expectations and more. I love that it does all the work while I sit there and watch (or better yet, sort thru photos or pick paper). It is EXTREMELY easy to learn to use and you will be cutting in minutes from unpacking it! I was thrilled to see it would cut thin chipboard (cereal boxes) and vellum. It has so many great features like shadow and blackout shadow for letters that make it so easy to get lots of different looks from one cartridge.

I also am an avid scrapbooker, and can not imagine scrapping without it! My friends and I have scrapbooking parties every month, and 3 of us have now purchased this machine!! It is amazing. I also THROUGHLY recommend the Design Studio program that Cricut makes. The software is very cheap at WalMart, and is worth EVERY penny!!!

Honestly though, I get ALOT of mileage out of the George cartridge that it comes with. I am not big on the font, but the extras on the cartridge will keep you busy! This is a great machine and well worth the investment!!! Just hop on over to the gallery and check out some of the artwork that was created with the Cricut!

I have recently recieved the cricut. I have fallen in love with it and brought a few people with me. I love that I can make my own stuff for scrapping. Whether it is alphabets or just simply embellishments. I find that i can make embellies out of any paper I want and if I were to go to the store, I would have to "settle" for the colors/patterns they have. Not what I want to do. If you are on the fence about it, go get one! you will love it

How did I ever live without this? I originally started out with the red cutter, and I hated it. I bought the Cricut and fell in love. The basic George font is an adorable font and really all you need, but you will soon collect more. You get sucked in.
I would love to see the Cricut come in other colors- maybe as a limited edition item. Like pink, and some of the proceeds to go breast cancer research
Used in this layout: What was I thinking?
It took a lot of research and savings to make the decision to finally buy a diecutter, and I chose the Cricut! This was the best decision because of its versitility and ease of use. I now have 10 carts and can't wait to get the Cricut design studio for it!! I love that you can choose your size and font without having to sacrifice a lot of time and money! This is the best cutter out there (IMO)!!!

I absolutely love the Cricut I recently bought. I got this smaller version instead of the Expression mostly because of cost, (HSN.com has a great price and quick shipping) but for card making and scrap booking you really don't need anything bigger. It really makes all your projects easier and in the long run you'll save money by not needing to buy all the different size/color words or images.

I have had my Cricut for about a year now and I love it. It isnt the first die cut tool that I have owned, and it will be the last.

There are a number of options in each cartridge and you will always enjoy the outcome!

This is the best money I've ever spent! I've used the Cricut for home decor, party decorations, school projects, cards AND scrapbooking. My son even used it to make a stencil to design a team tshirt.

Cricut is my first "cutter" and I love it! While I haven't used other products, I see no reason to! This little guy does everything I need it to do for perfect fonts and embellishments.

Used in this layout: Napping with Papa
I got this regular cricut for christmas. I do love this little machine! The things I don't like are that the only quarter size you can do is 1 1/4, then it jumps to every half inch... I really really wish it had more quarter size options...I also find brand new cutting mats super sticky and sometimes rip paper. Also you kind of have to play around because sometimes while its cutting the paper rips. I try to use my cutting mats as long as possible I clean the mat and mix "tack it over and over" with some water and brush it on and let it dry, it gets super sticky also so I tap my hands over it a few times. This method works well to further the life of the mat but once it gets too cut up you'll run into problems with cutting paper. If you have the money for an expression buy that, I thought I wouldn't use anything bigger that 5.5 inches, but at valentines day I wanted to cut my own window decorations, and 5.5 wasn't big enough for what I wanted to do. The expression is too much money for me but maybe one day...

I purchased the machine and several cartridges and had used them extensively over the past year. However, I did not REALLY enjoy the system until I purchased the new Cricut Design Studio software to go with it. I feel like I have an entirely new system again. All the old cartridges are getting used again in a new way. I'm "nudging" my letters together to get some really fun words and designs. I am also creating boarders now by nudging my images (like flowers) together before I have the Cricut cut them. The Cricut alone is very functional and useful, but now that I have the additional software, I'm having a blast.

I jumped on the cricut bandwagon after it went down in price. I am glad I bought one but am extra happy that I got a deal on it! I bought it primarily to cut out alpha's but after getting the Storybook cart. I really like the shapes and designs you cna cut out at different sizes too! It has some idiosyncracies that with a computer based machine for instace wouldn't be a problem but overall I'm happy with it. Unfortunately I have been through 7 mats because they lose their stickiness too quickly but not enough that I wouldn't buy it again.

I love this little machine! I had wanted it for a while and it was actually purchased for me as a gift. However, once I had it, I was trepeditious about using it. I tried it out once or twice, but didn't really do anything else with it until I had a friend ask me how to use hers. Once I did that and we tried several different things and cartridges, I busted mine out and went to town and haven't looked back!
Since I've started using it again, I have used it for lo's, cards, signs, tags, and much more! I've done projects for a couple of co-workers which turned out fantastic too.
I also love the fact that you don't need the computer to use it. That was a big thing for me when I was looking into die-cut machines. I'm not computer savvy in the least when it comes to using it to scrap, so I wanted something that didn't require it to be hooked to the comupter and I couldn't be happier.
This is definately one to think about if you're looking into getting a die-cutter.
This amazing machine can do so many things-it will truly knock your socks off. I am not great with computers, or complicated tools-but this machine was so easy to use, I was able to plug it in, insert the blade (all by my little self) and use it right out of the box! I cannot imagine another tool that can do so many things. Each cartridge offers TONS of different ideas, and makes each layout so unique!
Truly, the only thing that has topped this machine for me is the Cricut expressions! Both machines are wonderful (the expressions machine does 12x12 or 12x24" things which I use a lot of)! They both do basically the same thing-so if you can't afford the expressions, it's no big deal-this great Provo craft personal electric cutter will do the same thing for you! Don't be scared to spend the money on it-you will NEVER regret it for even one minute!
When I was 16 I wanted to buy my first die-cutter. I was gonna buy something very big and red. Along with the bulky red thing, I would have to buy a board with a sharp cut-out on it- it would only cut that ONE die-cut in that ONE size.
I was so excited to buy something with my very first paycheck, ever, I was gonna go for it. But, my Dad had my back. He saw this digital machine in a glass case on a store display. He convienced me to save a few more paychecks and I had my very own Cricut :)
I have had this awesome little machine now for 3 years and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's always new and changing with the cartridges that have TONS of die-cut options.
In short: I love my cricut and it's worth the investment because it will last for a while :)
At first, I wasn't willing to believe all the great things I was hearing about this little machine. I had tried a couple of other die cutting systems and found them less than amazing although they had cost me a pretty penny. So when I began to hear the buzz about this "Cricut" thing that could cut anything in any size while you sipped your lemonade, I was skeptical. But then I saw a live demo and my eyes opened wide as I imagined the possibilities. And the savings! Now I could use this one machine to cut letters, numbers, shapes, flourishes, charms, tags, bags, boxes, cards... in miniature or jumbo sizes!!! It was like a whole new world! I might have been twice shy before I got my Cricut but now that I've been bitten by the bug, I'll never look back!
I WAS PREPARING FOR MY DAUGHTER'S BABY SHOWER AND WAS IN THE STORE READY TO PURCHASE AND PAY $17 FOR EACH TABLE NUMBER BECAUSE THEY WERE LASER CUT. WELL, I WENT TO THE CRAFT STORE AND ACCIDENTALLY BUMPED INTO CRICUT.
IT TOTALLY MADE MY DAUGHTER'S BABY SHOWER AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES MY WAY A SUCCESS INSTEAD OF USING TABLE NUMBERS, WE NAMED THE TABLES BABY NAMES IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES. IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS, SO MUCH SO THAT I NOW DO THEM FOR ALL MY FRIENDS. IT IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE EVER USED.
I HAVE A SIZZIX BUT NO WAY DOES IT COMPARE TO THIS. AND IT IS USER FRIENDLY AS WELL. I CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT IT.
THANKS FOR CREATING THIS FASCINATING LITTLE MACHINE.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
I wish I would have seen this and bought this when I first started scrapbooking! It would have saved me the money that I have spent on scisssors, cutters, trimmers, and various other tools I have purchased over the years. Not to mention having the room to store them all, and then finding them when you need them. The Provo Craft Cricut doesn't take up that much room and is easy to set up. I love mine! It does take a couple "test runs" to understand how to get the right blade pressure on your paper, etc. So it is a good idea to start with some "test paper" until you get the hang of it. It doesn't take long & once you do...you will love your Provo Craft Cricut just like I do!
I was so excited when I got the Cricut for my birthday 2 years ago. I was constantly buying letters for my scrapbooks. It seemed that it was all I was buying. This machine has saved me time, stress, and money. I spend so much less on letter stickers now. I can cut letters to my desired size and to match my layouts perfectly. It's nice to be able to type exactly what you want to say and have it cut so you don't have to fool around with it. It's also nice have the needed amount of letters without having to buy another pack of stickers because you need another letter 'r'. This little machine is wonderful!
I absolutely LOVE my cricut! At first, I was worried that this would be one of those gifts that I would have out for a week and then place on the shelf to collect dust.....NOT so!
I have had so much fun "experimenting" with this nifty machine. I use it not only for my budding scrapbooking hobby, but as a resource tool for creating items for the classroom.
I recently walked into a local scrapbook store and what do you think I saw on the work counter??? A Cricut! They were actually using the machine to make items to sell in the store...I thought to myself "Now I am ahead of the game..."
I had watched the commercials on this and my mind began thinking of all the ways i could use it. The price made me hesitate. This is a wonderfull machine. Cutting most everything you could want for scrapbooking, cards, bulletin boards, letters, figures. Its very easy to use to making hours of hand cutting disappear. You can adjust the size of the item you cut which is wonderfull. If you watch all the on line stores you can also find it cheeper than the tv ones. Mine had four carts and ink pens. Which is also another way of using it. Put the pens in the place of the blade shaft.
I love this machine! I have had mine for several months now and still am delighted with it. I know others have wondered about the newer, bigger electronic die cutters but I am not one bit tempted by those more expensive machines. I love the portability of this machine, I love that I can cut whatever I want in several sizes out of exactly the color paper I want. I have never, ever wished that it would cut something bigger than the 5.5 inches that this machine will handle. And with more and more new cartridges coming out, I am looking forward to a long and happy time with my "bug"!
WOW! What a machine, you can't ask for more! This machine does it all for you, you could actually stop buying alphabet stickers after you get this! No more running out of letters, no more can't peel the sticker off or, ripping! Just simply type in what you want to say, and you can choose any size you want it to be! There is also shapes and sayings included with the letter kits! Say if you went on vacation to Disney World, and you wanted to scrap, they have a Disney themed kit with some of the characters! This may seem a little pricey, but it's an envestment well worth it!
Since I already have die cutting machines, I didn't think I needed the Cricut added to my ever growing list of tools. I'm very glad that I purchased it because I love the versatility of it. I also like the fact that you can print on any size of paper and it's easy to use right out of the box. The cartridges that you purchase seperately are unique, which is something that I look for. I don't like things that look like everything else. I would recommend buying the tool kit as sometimes smaller pieces are hard to remove from the cutting mat.
I just graduated from high school. I heading off to college in about three weeks. I love scrapbooking. It's so much fun! I've been scrapbooking for about a year. I used my graduation money and bought this cricut die cutting machine after researching and watching infomercials on television. I am so pleased. It was totally worth the money. Although the cartridges can be expensive, I watch the ads and buy them on sale. If you love scrapbooking, you should definitely invest in a Cricut. You won't regret it.
I am scrapping at a friend's house for NSBD. She has a Cricut machine and introduced me to it for the first time today. I LOVE it! I only used it for letters so far but am sure I will love all its uses.
I have always used stencils or stamps to write out any wording on the tops of my pages. Now I'm saving my pennies to buy myself a Cricut. It was so fast in cutting out the letters and they had clean cut edges. And I can have the same font in different sizess.
I have had my cricut for almost 3 years and I absolutely love it! It is the greatest thing I have spent my money on. Its easy to use and tons of fun! I love getting the newest cartridges and having fun with them! There are so many great things you can do with this machine and other machines by provo craft its insane! This is the perfect gift for the ultimate scrapbooker if they don't already have it and the perfect gift for the new scrapbooker to get started!!
I scrapbook all the time and have almost every tool imaginable. This Cricut Cuttter is by far one of my favorite. I would much rather spend the money on a tool that will cut the words and letters for me than pay $20-12.00 for an already cut saying or word....that can get very pricey for someone who scrapbooks as much as me. I only wish it would cut something larger than 5.5 in but that is truely the only downside I see. Wonderful Product!
I love, love, love my bug! I dont know how I would scrap without it. I was hooked on it from the beginning, and now I love learning what else it can do. It is for sure worth the money. The only downfall, is that at crop nights, everybody wants me to cut things out for them. I strongly encourage them to get their own, and let me scrap!!!!! Even if you are kinda considering it, buy it! You wont regret it.
Why oh why did I buy the Accu Cut and then the Sizzix?? Because this was not out yet!! This is all that I need and ever will need! I just love that I can use it without the computer. And now that there is software, I have even more versatility with the computer!! It is great. You can find deals on the cartridges on line and on ebay. I try to build by collection by getting cartridges for $50 or less.
Its portable and I love that you don't have to have it hooked to a computer.
Its made monograms so easy to do. I love making tags and it has so helped when it comes to me making cards. I am a card making machine and this die cut machine is a life saver. I love all the cartridges for it. Goodness knows that I need more of them. But I love this product and got a great deal on it.
i love this cutter. you can do so much with it, and i love how u can use a bunch of scrap papers on the mat; it's a total paper saver! i use even the smallest pieces. i have a bunch of cartridges, and i cant pick a favorite one. i like all of them. i find that paper pups is exceptionally cute tho. =) since i've gotten this cutter, it's hard to sb without it.
I purchased the Cricut Electronic Cutter just recently. WOW what a great machine. It took me awhile to figure it out and I think there is a lot to learn but I love it. You can do so many things with this machine. I truely believe that every scrapbooker should have one. I set and watch this machine in awe. It is great and I highly recomend it.
I recently got the 24" Cricut and absolutly love it. It has been so handy to make cards and help with school projects and most important to add to my scrapbook pages. I am doing pages faster, cuter and I love it. This is my first cutting system that I have bought and I don't see myself needing anything---- except each cartridge!!
Like so many others I've been bit by the bug. I recieved mine as a Christmas gift and I absolutely LOVE it. It is so easy to use and the cuts are perfect. Before getting my Cricut I used to trace and cut my letters with a craft knife, so to me this is the best thing since sliced bread. Thanks for making such an awesome machine
I was in the dark about die cut machines for a long time, and I did a lot of research on various machines and finally decided on a cricut. This machine is very easy to use & I can do so much with it. It has helped make my cards & pages look so much nicer! I highly recommend this product to scrapbookers on any level.
I have a limited budget to buy my scrapbooking supplies. Since I see the Cricut and I think I'm in loved. But it took several months to make sure it was the right choice for me. After some research I purchase my Cricut and I don't regret it. The Cricut is the best purchase that I have done. I recommend it.
this one is the best on the market!! i have the expression. it totally out weighs the other products on the market. it is very simple to use and is very fast! the cartridges are great & the instructions are very easy. i especially like that it goes to many different sizes. it cuts thin to thick with no worries.
I got a cricut for Christmas this year. My mom and step dad, brothers, their girlfriends, and two of my friends all pitched in and bought me a cricut for Christmas!! I was so happy! I had already used my BFFs, but it's great to have your own. Now I have to work on getting more cartridges....lol.
Oh my this is the best thing thats been invented!! Save your money and buy one.. My husband bought me mine and I just LOVE it. No more remembering to pick up die cuts any more at the store. Just make them and go. I just love doing the transpairacy and shrink sheets. AWESOME!!!
Before I even started scrapping I saw an infomercial on the cricut. I thought "wow, that looks cool." Then I started scrapping and this is one of the "must haves". I have horrible hand writing so the definatley comes in handy. I just love all the things I can do with it.
I got the cricut for christmas this year and absolutely LOVE it!! It is so cool, it can do SOOO many different things and it saves tons of money, I hardly buy stickers anymore. I use it for seriously every page I scrap. I couldnt be more happy with it.
I wanted a Cricut for so long and I waited to get the Cricut Epressions (not the one posted) and I absolutley love it!! This is the best invention ever!! It is a bit pricey but well worth the money. I highly recomend this scrapbookers dream machine!
I said I would recommend it to a friend and I definitely have! I have demonstrated for them how to use mine and they went out and bought theirs shortly after. I use this everytime I scrap and I don't spend money on alphas anymore! I love my cricut!
Great Product!! This is one of the BEST investments I have ever made to my scrapbooking supplies. Just when you think you can't find that PERFECT title or embellie - pull out your Cricket and make it yourself!! A must have for any scrapbooker.
I got my Cricut as a Birthday/Christmas present. I love it. It's so much better than having to but letters. You can never find the right color or size. With the Cricut you get exactly what you want everytime!!!
I absolutely love my Cricut. I have the original Cricut and the Expression. I use it all the time. I use it on every card and LO I make. Couldn't live without it. A MUST HAVE!
Can I express to you how much I love it. I do find that it can do just about anything. I haven't bought the software for my computer, but I feel that when I do I will love it too.
I love this tool! OMG it helps me so much I acan do anything, less cutting for me and more scrapping. This machine can cut all sorts os shapes sizes and letting! Makes everything so much easier!!!!
I was also bitten by the bug but I have a sting of confusion lingering with me. Over The weekend I adopted some Mini Monsters ,these little guys are so cute and adorable but are a menace to create. They are very colorful and sweet in there little booklet but when animating them some of the phases needed to complete them are unavailable on the cartridge. A picture is worth a 1,000 words but poor instructions and insuficient tools to bring these little guys to life is a real downer
