    Default cricut software

    i am thinking of getting a cricut (you ladies are a bad influence). my concern is spending a ton of money on cartridges. does anyone have the software? i'm not sure how it works, can you edit the images only from the cartridges you already have? or can you start fresh and make anything you want ... if that's the case, then theoretically, you wouldn't need any cartridges, right? anybody?

    you have to have the cartridge to use the cartridge's content with the software.

    I don't have the software, but I *think* it only cuts the images of the carts you have plugged into your Cricut, but you can see and play with every image from every cart. But the software does soooo many cool other things like welding letters and using a variety of carts in one cut, etc. I forgot to download the trial version before it had expired, but I think Gwen has it. It's something I may get in the future....like next year sometime.

    DH bought for me about a month ago, whatever cartridge you have, you can incorporate into a design. DH tried it one day and used 3 different carts to create his designs. The machine will actually instruct you to place each cart in the machine and it downloads it to memory. You got 6 carts, you can use an image from each cart into 1 design. KWIM? HTH!

    I think you might be more into the wishblade if you want computer only. Also, I think QuicKutz has a computerized cutter now.

    If you can afford it, the new BossKut Gazelle is TOTALLY the way to go!! It can cut chipboard, thin fun foam, and full 12x12 sheets!!! You can buy the Gazelle here for 449.00 and it is honestly worth it's weight in gold!! I cant WAIT to be able to upgrade!!

    I have a Quickutz Silhouette and I really like it, but it can only do Bazzill cardstock as it's thickest medium and also only sheets 8.5" wide.


    I forgot to add both of these are digital cutters meaning you can download an endless supply of images as well as fonts that can be resized and cut numerous times!!
