Does anyone have the Slice? I know the review here isn't that fond of it...but I still wanted to ask.
I've thought of getting a cricut, but I'm afraid I won't use it that much. I didn't want to spend the money on the expressions....so I was going to get the basic cricut. But then AC Moore has the Slice for $120. So a few questions:
What would be the best price I could get on the Cricut anyway? And where? And are there things I need to buy on top of that? For instance, I know I'd want the spatula...(besides carts of course).
I really want something mostly for fonts, but I'm sure I'll use it for other things if I do get it.
Any thoughts on the slice or the basic cricut are more than welcome!
I have the basic Cricut (Personal Cutter 6x12) and I'm having a blast with it...after thinking it was a waste of my hubby's money!
I'm pretty sure he got it online fun under $150...
I'm really clueless as to what the "Slice" is...so I really can't compare. Sorry. But I did want to say that I'm loving the cricut and right now...see no real need for the Expression. I don't need to cut large items, or fabric and vinyl. I'm using my Cricut for catching up on scrapbooking so that cart that came with it (George font and shapes) was good, then I splurged and got the Sans Serif Sloution cart and Paper Dolls Cart. I guess you can say I am addicted!
I also have the basic Cricut and LOVE it!! I did not buy any of the extras because I would rather spend my money on a new cartridge! So, I do not have any of the tools (spatula, etc.). It comes all ready to use! The only thing I have bought is a new cartridge, and I found it for $29.99 at customcrops.com! This site also has the Cricut machine for anywhere from $119.99-$149.99 depending on if you want it to come with a cartridge already...which I would really recommend! The shipping is also free from that site! Good luck!
I'm bias seeing as I've owned 2 smaller Cricuts(sold one to buy the Expression and then gave my sister the other)
I'm not to fond of the limit the Slice gives you for making fonts and shapes. At least on the Cricut you can cut up to 5", I think. The Cricut cartridges may be mors expensive but you can get so much more out of them.
Example, if you have alphabet cartridge you can do 26 lower case, 26 upper case, 52 shadows or 52 shadow blackouts. That's 156 letters possible. Some cartridges have even more features adding to the total

Yep....like the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge! Sooooo many different little things!
