Hi ladies. Sorry I haven't been around much. I started going back to school, so between working full time and going to school 3 nights a week, I don't have much time for JM, much less scrapbooking! LOL.
Anyway, I made a pact with myself that I am going to start scrapbooking at least 1 hour on Saturday and Sunday IF I spend 3 hours studying. Yeseterday it really worked. But, I did have some extra motivation. My coworker let me borrow her cricut! I am in LOVE! I was cutting out everything I could! I SOOOOOO want one. And hubby decided since I loved it so much he would buy me one.
So, I am debating between the cricut expressions and the cricut. I know the expressions can cut 12x12 or 12x24 paper. It is also twice as expensive. I am okay with spending the money on it, but honestly, am I ever going to need one that cuts that big? Is there anything else the expressions does that is better than the regular cricut?
I feel my judement is clouded! LOL. DH said if I want the expressions I have to wait until December, and if I want the regular one, I can get it now. I want it now but I don't want to regret not waiting and getting the expressions. What should I do?
I have used both. My mom has the regular, and I now have the expression. I feel like you have many more options with the expression. I love being able to cut out larger objects, big circles, edges, etc.
If I was going to spend the money on it, I would just bit the bullet and get the big one, but thats just me. I'm also impatient and I wouldn't want to wait till December either, lol.
Thanks ladies. I appreciate all of your suggestions! I think DH is going to let me buy one next weekend!!!!! He saw how much I love the one I am borrowing and all of the cool things I can create with it! I am estatic! This will definately give me something to keep my mind off of TTC for a while!
Yea!!!! I got my Cricut Expressions! I am so stinking excited! DH and I went out to dinner last night and he surprised me by stopping at the store and letting me pick one out! I can't wait to start using it!
As far as the mats go, 2 12x12 mats costed me $10.50, so thats not too bad!
