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.
