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!
