Anyone own a cricut?

I'm thinking about asking for one for Christmas from my hubby, but I was wondering if they're really as great as they look. There are three different ones, and I'm looking at the personal one (the $300 one) any advice?

  • I have the personal cricut & I love it! I wish I could have got the expression but its a lil' out of budget, I say I will get it for myself when my kids get older so we can use it for school projects as well! I also love the Cricut Create its exclusive to Michaels craft store. but its as small as the personal with alot of benifts of the expressions.

    It depends on what your hubby is useing it for. how large he would want his cuts to be. 6in. & under is big enough,personal is perfect . But if he wants larger (up to 12 in) then Expressions or Create would be money well spent.Theres alot of cool cartrides that are only useful if you can cut larger than 6 in. (for example Tags, Bags, Boxes & More).

  • I have the original Cricut (new in the box, never opened) and would like to sell it for $150. I already have one, so this was an extra one and I couldn't take it back.

  • I have the personal, and love it, but if you're gonna spend $300, go to Wal-Mart and get the expression, it's $289.99 in my store. If I had the money for it, I would upgrade...
