Wow, where to start? I love my Cricut machine! I use it in almost every single layout and card I make. Since buying it, I have not purchased a single greeting card and I never have to buy letters, shapes, etc. It allows you to cut only the letters you need, instead of a bunch of extra waste. And you can cut whatever you want in any color paper you want. Scraps work great for titles! Smile Alot of us paper girls have one, so you can look at threads with paper layouts and see if it mentions carts, etc.
Here is the link to the cricut website.

I use it a lot for titles of pages and occasional shapes on pages. I use it A LOT for cards.

neat
I will have to see if the craft store here does classes. Me and technology don't usually get along to well that is why I paper craft and not digital to start. But I have seen them in the store craft section but did not pay them much mind as they look like a computer printer if you don't know what you are looking at.

As far as technology goes, they are pretty easy to figure out. I like the fact that you don't have to use a computer with them. They have made several advances with the Cricut and I hope to be able to do more things with it. I know some have the design studio which allows you to combine cartridge designs. Also, there is a new program out there that allows you to cut different fonts from your computer. I haven't ventured there yet but Cricut.com can tell you all about it. Beware though because those message boards can get you hooked.

LOL so I wake up today and what is on TV but a circut infomercial. It looks addicting and fun. Not only for paper love that it cut fabric too.

that infomercial made me want to try the Armour Etch glass stuff! I was watching it the other day too. Smile Have any of you done glass etching yet?
