I am looking into buying a Cricut machine. Which one would you suggest?

Question by Yani20: I am looking into buying a Cricut machine. Which one would you suggest?
I love to scrapbook. I’m crafty
but I do that on my free time. So I don’t think that I want to spend 200+ on it. I was thinking about the mini but I don’t know much about this machine. Help.

Answer by drip
My sister teaches classes for the Cricut and Gypsy. The Cricut has a learning curve to it. Do not expect to take it out of the box and start scraping. You are going to have to sit and practice on it. Imhighly suggest trying it out at a scrapbook store before you buy it.

There are different ones on the market, and to be honest, I do not like any of them. Cricut, Cuttlebug are two that come to mind right away. They are not cheap, and you have to purchase cartridges that will allow you to cut out certain shapes and fonts. What I really dislike about them is that the paper you use has to be a certain size and has to stick to the surface of the cutting board. If you are not using a good quality card stock, the shapes and letters will be difficult to remove from the cutting surface and will most likely wrinkle or tear. I love the sizzix system (although that will get pricey as well), because it will cut a wide variety of materials (even fabric!). When I need a font or shape that I do not have for the sizzix system, I just print it from my computer and cut it out. With a fine swivel xacto knife you can get very intricate. My circuit machine is collecting dust. After 3 tries, I gave up.

Answer by gator girl
They make a cartridge that is ocean-themed with fish, starfish, etc. I assume a whale shape would be on it. The best prices for cartridges are on ebay.

Have you ever gone to the website Cricut.com they have a message board. It is free and there are a lot of teachers on the message board. Just go to the website and then go to community then go to message board. To be able to ask a question you have to sign in but it is free and very helpful.
