never likes the Cricut. It is not user friendly. takes forever to figure out. Blade is picky, you are constantly fooling with it to get a good cut.
Look in to the Cameo. If that is out of your price range. Try the Sizzix machine.

Q&A: Why won’t my Cricut Mini cut?

Question by : Why won’t my Cricut Mini cut?
Ok, so I have an image in my Cricut Craft Room, my Cricut is plugged in, my paper is loaded.
I click cut and the screen pops up, I tell it what kind of paper, click cut again, and then the screen just disappears and my Cricut does not cut.
I’ve tried calling customer service but they are no help at all. 🙁 please help if you know anything about these machines.

Can you use mini cricut machine without cartridge?

Question by Teresa: Can you use mini cricut machine without cartridge?

Best answer:

Answer by Mommiedearest
Cricut cutting machines work well for making many craft projects, but the cartridges can be expensive. The Cricut machine works without a cartridge if it is attached to a computer with the correct software. as of November 2010, one software program makes the Cricut cartridge free. The program is “Sure Cuts A Lot,” and is available for PC or Mac users. The software costs between $ 65 to $ 120 depending on which package you want and lets you design and print any design on the Cricut.
