Sizzix does awesome at cutting chipboard. The cricut, well, technically you're not supposed to. But there are ways around it - but it will wear down the blade quicker.
Ok ladies. I want one of these. Can you ladies be so kind as to give me a link to one so I can see what all it can do and the price? THANKS SO MUCH!

Go to Ebay and type in Cricut! There are tons on there for some really great prices. I told "Santa" that I wanted one for Christmas. hehehe. Dh was pleased at least I gave him an idea.

So what is the difference between a Cricut and Sizzix?
Where I'm just starting with the paper scrapbooking and just spent $$$ getting my scrap space set up, I'm thinking that the Sizzix is cheaper?and the machine is manual?
Can it the do the same functions as the Cricut? Is the quality of the Cricut better?
sorrry for all the questions..
The thing about the cricut and other electronic die cutting machines is the versatility in changing the size of the cuts..the 1st cricut cuts sizes as big as 5.5 inches - 11.5 and as small as 1 inch the new cricut expression cuts up to 11.5 - 23.5 inches and as small as 1/4 inch I believe so that is the big advantage and to be able to do more than one cut at a time

with the cricut, you buy cartridges (for less than the cost of a Sizzix alphabet) and you can do so many things with just one cartridge (each are of a different font).
But there's pros and cons for each, so I'm glad I have both. for chipboard, Sizzix is actually better, but like Schona said, you only have the one size.
