The Expressions is the only way to go. Once you get started creating things, you will be thinking of more and more things you can create with it. The possibilities are almost endless! I have even incorporated it into my quilting by using infusable webbing on the material before cutting it with the Cricut. It has taken my quilting to a whole new level with the shapes and lettering options!
I originally bought it to do scrapbooking with my 22 yr old daughter. She has been making scrapbooks by using all the stencils, special scissors and other expensive what nots. Forget doing things that way ever again!
The Cricut also makes crafting easier and for those of us with health conditions concerning our hands. You won't have to give up doing projects that you enjoy.
The Walmart price is also lower then the Cricut online sight or ordering it thru the TV promotion and you get all the same things included! Please keep the stores and the online site well stocked with all the Cricut items. There are alot of us folks that will be coming back time and time again to purchase more items at these terrific prices.
If you are reading this and haven't bought a Cricut from Walmart yet, do it soon. I recommend the Expressions because it enables you to do more intricate piecing designs, has larger sizing options and is computer compatable with the Cricut software. Get your Cricut today and you won't ever regret this purchase!
I am happily crafting in PA!
I was reluctant to spend this much on the Cricut Expression but now that I have it, I love it. For those that have not yet purchased this product, just to let you know that the machine is just the beginning of the cost. All cartridges will run $50-90 (but I found some online for as low as $30). Mats and cutting blades will need to be replaced periodically (based on your use). And then of course all the kits you can get (a kit to make your own stamps, a kit to make you own embossing folders for use in the Cuttlebug). It's endless, but worth it if you will enjoy it and use it often. I am:)
I ordered my Cricut Expression on walmart.com. It is approximately $10 more than just buying it at Wal-Mart but you receive the Accent cartridge. It is priced $100 cheaper than craft stores!! Great price for the product!
I have been able to make home decor, decorate for my school classroom, and will soon venture into scrapbooking with it. All of my family and friends have been fascinated with the results and everyone wants one now.
The machine is easy to use and can do so many things once you read the instruction manual. I usually just jump into things and start reading instructions when I cannot figure things out. I have discovered many different things this product can do.
I have used different types of paper and vinyl so far. I have not tried cloth but do not imagine any problems with cutting it.
I have made so many projects so far. Several people have asked me if I have considered going into business selling items because the machine makes very professional products.
I had previously owned the Cricut cutter, which is limited to a 6x12" mat, so I decided to upgrade to the Expression which can use either 12x12" or 12x24" mats. If you are like me and like to cut cards, scrapbooking overlays, and home decor, this IS the product to have. It will cut almost anything, including fabric, adhesive vinyl, chipboard, cardstock, foam, magnet material and SO much more! paired with the Design Studio software or Gypsy, the possibilities are truly endless. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product, and you will too!
I'm really having fun with the Cricut cutter! I will say that the instructions are a little sparse and not difficult but they leave a lot out, especially to someone who has had no experience with the tool. If the instructions were listed in order, it might be a little more fool-proof. I have made errors because it was not made clear the exact order in which to punch the buttons.
I have had a cricut for over 2 years and thought it was wonderful. Yesterday I got my new cricut expression and it is absolutely fantastic. I scrapbook a lot, and this is a must have for my projects. I never want to be without them. However, I did go in one store and just happened to check the box before I bought, and the second cartridge was not in either box. I went to another WalMart and again checked before I bought, and the cartridge was there. Be sure and check the contents before buying.
i got this for christmas, it is the best gift ! its very easy to use after reading all the instructions.the buttons and cutting items are very easy to access.the only thing is- i think it should have come with the spatula or some other tool that will help remove the item from the cutting mat.i have torn many things trying to get them off without it. its about time someone came out with a unit that can connect to your computer so that you can design some things yourself and send them to the cricut to process ! I LOVE MY CRICUT!!
I have lots of different cutting systems and I must say this is the cadillac of them all. Absolutely wonderful. And the company has the best support I have ever seen. Whether you do scrapbooking, cards, projects with the kids or household crafts it is great. The creativity with this is endless. You can't go wrong with this one.
My Cricut broke after very limited use in 1 1/2 years time. Since it was after warranty, the only option Provo Craft offered was for me to spend $120 to get a refurbished one that has a 90 day warranty. I didn't pay that for the new machine! The housing that holds the blade stopped applying pressure and won't cut. This is something that can't be fixed. Very disappointing. According to Provo Craft, a year warranty is generous. It is the same length of warranty I got for my new refrigerator, but my fridge is still working after a year of running 24/7... (and if it were to break, I'd be able to get it fixed!). I will not be investing anymore money into a disposable product until it is offered at disposable prices!
I got to use my friend's Expression a few times and was very happy with the results.. I too had problems with it cutting thru heavier cardstock which I remedied by using a mini blade to pop the letters out (my letters were 3/4" tall)... I am wondering if I had used the Deep Cut blade I might not have had the trouble... although the blade she had in her machine had been used already to cut thru about 160 designs.. it might have been in need of changing. I cannot wait to own my own so I can help my son present professional looking school projects and help make awesome signs for our cub scout events. Yeahoo!
I love my new cricut. if you are a scrapbooker,teacher,crafter it is the most fun yet. I love that it takes the larger 12x12 in paper. I have the smaller cricut but this is the one.
This machine is great! I purchased it to use on the bulletin boards at school. It was easy to learn for both me and my students.
My bulletin boards have never looked so good!!!
Love It, Love It, Love It! I purchased my cricut almost a month ago and have found so many uses for it and I don't even scrapbook. I have made cards, envelopes, letters for the kids school poster projects.
This is truly the best product I have purchased for my scrapbooking! But it works for other creative things as well. I am still learning the ins and outs of the product, but I absolutely love it. I would recommend going online and purchasing the Sure Cuts A Lot software. This is awesome software that works just with the Cricut and you don't have to purchase anymore cartridges!! This is a must have for anyone who is scrapbooking or likes to be creative!
When I first got it the mat, it was too sticky and I couldn't get my perfectly cut shapes to come loose. There wasn't anything in the instructions about this. But I googled the problem and found a couple helpful suggestions from other users: 1) rub a T-shirt on the mat and 2) increase the cutting pressure. Now it works really well, and I have great looking cut outs for my scrapbook pages. I'm using a lot more cut outs, now that I can easily make them myself, and my pages are already starting to look better.
This product is so awesome! I have to agree with the other reviews that the mat is very sticky, but after several cuttings and wetting the mat, the paper started pealing off easier. I have already made items for my scrapbooks and now working on making baseball signs for the dugout for my son's team!
Great item, so easy to use great for beginners. And that is what I am
But doing good with it, any one that has thought about a cricut, get it
From walmart great price, you will love it.
We all know this product is fantastic and amazing. The reason I bought the Cricut from Walmart is simple....best bundle and best price!!!!!
First one I ordered did not cut, was told to return it. Re-ordered and the new one still did not work, had to return the second one. The site is now sold out so I can not give the machine a third try.
have had cricut for years but now I have the larger one because I do use mine a lot. I have also got into the Cricut Craft Room and am having so much fun and able to do so much more.
