I hadn't planned on buying one...but I do love that red color. Picked this one up off of Ebay for less than $90. Such a steal considering it was just released last year for a retail price of $430. Lesson learned...never buy a Cricut when it first releases...you really don't need it that bad. Ok...I don't want to talk about why I "need" 4 cricuts. To be honest...I own 5, but one of my baby bugs stays up north. Each of my Cricuts have their own function and purpose.
Cricut Cake is my newest addition. She's meant for cakes. I figure if I don't use her much for cakes...I'll convert her to a regular pretty red expression.
Cricut Imagine prints and cuts. She was really frustrating to get used to because she had to get sent back to the manufacturer for an update. I think I didn't get to use her until about 1 month after I bought her. Now I use her often, but not as often as my expression.
Cricut Expression just cuts paper. I love the autofill function because I can cut shapes in bulk. I do this all the time! She can also cut up to 12" x 24".
Baby Bug is portable. She can go anywhere, but can only cut 6 x 12. I picked her up for really cheap from one of my favorite places to buy cartridges...I think she was $30 with a cartridge that I can sell for about $30.
In all, I realize how blessed I am to own these tools. I'm working on a plan to use my creativity for other purposes besides my own stress relief. God's putting a "bug" in my heart again - so I'm praying for direction, and I'm confident he will respond in good time. Until then....stay tuned!
