Hey everyone! I haven't posted much in here yet, but lurk around to see all your amazing layouts!! My mother-in-law and I are avid scrapbookers and she just purchased a Cricut. I am pretty sure she got the Cricut Expressions...not positive. It only came with 1 font cartridge so we can only choose from about 2 or 3 fonts, and I want to get her another cartridge for Christmas! I was wondering if you use the same cartridges for the regular Cricut and the Expression, or if there is something different for the Expression. Also, those of you with Cricuts, where do you get your cartridges and do you have any recommendations for good ones?! Thanks so much and I look forward to getting to know you all better. I hope to post some of my layouts soon!

For the cartridges I usually use customcrops.com for mine. They usually have a sale. Michelle would know more about the swapping of the cartridges from the baby to the expressions. But I am pretty sure that you can use the baby cartridges in the expression one. But I am not sure about the other way around.

The blinky is clickable!!

The cartridges can all be used with each machine, you can also use the Cricut Jukebox with each of the machines. Great item if you use different cartridges at once like I do.

I usually get my cartridges at Hallmark Scrapbook.

As for cartridges to get first that depends on what you will be working on. The GRAPHICALLY SPEAKING I can't rave enough about. It's so versitile. When I first got it I did a number of pages of different subjects. Any of the font cartridges are great, can't have to many fonts IMHO

You will have so much fun using it!! I know I do and it's more than paid for itself
