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. If you are new to scrapping, this is one of the few tools you will ever need to purchase. If you are an experienced scrapper, you know what I am talking about. Nothing else out there compares.
