Question by Sabrina Gordon: New Cricut Machine…what should be my first buys?
I have a brand new Cricut machine and an Amazon gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket. What should be my first buys? I have three cartidges already (Simply Charmed, Accent Essentials, and Plantin Schoolbook). Please let me know of any great cartridges you suggest or tools I should buy. Thanks!
We have a Cricut machine at my work and I’m the only one who uses it. A lot of people complain about it being complex but I find it very easy to figure out. I loved it so much, I asked for one for Christmas. I plan on using it for scrapbooking and cardmaking mostly. Thanks for the suggestions!

Stop and think a moment about what you are mainly going to use it for. Are you going to want to do letters? Die cuts? Those cake decal things? What?
If you do not have definite ideas jumping to mind as to what you primarily want to do with your Cricut, I suggest you play with the three cartridges you currently have.
Make notes of your thoughts as you go. Are you thinking something like “This set is great, it has everything I need in it” or are you thinking “I wish there was a ________ with this set” or “If only I had a set with ___ in it” or just what?
That is how you figure out what to buy next. Use the ones you have and see what’s lacking in them.
