So I’m totally in love with more than one cricut project I’ve seen other bees post in the DIY section of this site. I think I may just cave and by a cricut myself (I KNOW!!!). I’m looking at the Cricut Expressions, but can’t help but notice the cheaper option, Cricut Create.
Does anyone have the Create? Any reasons why I should/shouldn’t buy it? Any info you wish you knew before buying it? Can I use the Sure Cuts a Lot software?
Some of this, I know I can find on Cricut’s site. I just wanted to see what the word was with you bees! Thanks for any guidance on this!

If you are going to get one, in my opinion, it would be in your best interest to get the Expression. You can use the same cartridges with each of them, but the Expression is bigger, so it can do bigger and more cuts. It is not as limited as the other ones.

I have an Expression, my mom had the Create – she comes over to use the Expression alllllll the time. The Expression is the way to go if you are going to get one at all. Cricut is also releasing a new software (to be released in April I think)that will be like the Cricut software and the Sure Cuts a Lot software – but you can use it online – so it’s better. I LOOOOOOVE my Cricut and use it all the time. It’s completely worth it.

I’m reading all the other Cricut posts and am getting a lot of useful info. People keep mentioning that there are things they needed the bigger model (Expressions) for. I just want to make invitations, table numbers, thank you cards, stencils to etch glass, and some scrapbooking stuff. Shouldn’t the create be fine for that? What would people be using the bigger one for?

I have the cricut create. I kinda wish I had gotten the expression, just because it can cut larger designs. I got the create because it was on super sale on black friday a coupe of years ago. I think it depends on what you need, but the expression seems to be more versitile.

At this point I would go with the Expression (which is what I got, in the end) or the Imagine. But I’ve already done too many things where the Create would have been too small, so I’m glad I didn’t go that route.

thanks for the advice everyone!!! I just bought the Cricut Expression on eBay for about half of what it costs at Walmart (the only place that sells them in my area). Yay!
