Shopping for Cricut :)

So although I just started...but have done a lot I think in the last 2 weeks DH said I could buy a cricut. Yahoo I think they are the neatest tools.

Anywho.... First I know I'll be buying it online. The ones at the craft store are just too darn expensive.

Which kind should I get? It looks like there are 3 different ones but I can't really tell the difference.

What are some websites I can shop around at?

I'm excited...

Personally, I've used all three, and my favorite is the Cricut Create. I had the small bug for a year. Then traded up for my Create. My really good friend has an Expressions and I've used it many times too. The Create is the small convenient size of the smaller bug, but has all the awesome functions of the Expressions. I don't know what your space options are, but mine are very limited, so it's the perfect machine for me. Smile

IF I were to choose, I too would choose the Create. Charys said it well. I have the baby bug, but I would like the Create if I had the $.

I have the baby bug. When I bought it, the Create didn't exist. If I had the option to pick now, I would get the Create.

Ditto!

ETA: If $ is an important factor, I thought I should add that I am happy with my baby bug. I just would choose the Create if $ were no object! Smile
