Hi ladies. I used to post here before I became super caught up in life with a baby, haha. I don't know if you'll remember, but I was the one who made my daughter's whole first year album pre made? If you don't remember, that's fine. Just thought that might ring a bell.
Anyways, my SIL invited me to a crop night at a scrapbook store that her and her SIL and mother go to, and I had sooo much fun, I've been bitten by the scrapping bug again I'm super excited about it, and we've even planned on getting together at least one SUnday a month to do this. I've been playing around on Picasa getting all my pictures together, and ave realized that Izzie's (my daughter's) first year album is going to be getting a whole lot bigger now that I'll have some time to do this.
While at the crop, I did get to play around on one of the girl's cricuts (expression) and it was a ton of fun. I'm super excited to do so again! However, now I'm also thinking I may want one for myself, considering I will be doing some scrapping on my own too, and she won't be able to make it to every single crop. I've been looking around and have found the Cricut create at walmart for 145! This is way too much to be spending now, DH said to wait for Christmas, but I'm just curious about this so I can do my research and put together my list of cartridges and such.
For those of you that can help -
1. What are the big differences between the create and expression? (am I right in that those are the only two? ... and other than the price, haha).
2. What cartridges do you feel are MUST HAVES? Font wise or shape wise?
3. Any websites/stores you know of that you can get cheaper cartridges?
4. Any other advice you can think of when researching to buy a cricut?
Thanks so much for any help!
