Hello!! I have a Cricut and love it. I don't have the expressions. I have the small one. Are you a scrapbooker, cardmaker or crafter?

Hi,


I do a little bit of everything, but before by hand or printer. So really excited to get things done faster.

You will love it! Research the carts before you buy. I google pics for weeks before deciding which ones I like. I highly recommend create a critter or create a critter 2. You will always find a reason to use that cart.

Cricut craft room ( free online) is another awesome tool. Design on the computer, try out colors and size before you cut. Wastes less paper. Plus every now and then they will have digital carts you can use for a week or so. Great way to try out carts before you buy.

Google YouTube videos how to's. you will learn tons!

I'll post a few pics

This is one of my favorites. Baby steps cart. Chalking or inking the edges can make each cut unique.

Create a critter 2 swing card. The bear was supposed to be holding a heart. Thanks to craft room I was able to change it to a gift box instead. The bow was also an ad on, not included in the regular cut.

Last one. I think this cupcake was an accessory on create a critter 2. Each cart has many more possibilities that pics don't show. I got the layout from Pinterest.

Oh and get good card stock ( like the bazil card stock michaels has in open trays) it cuts better. Regular paper will usually tear.
