    Ooh I am interested to see how this turns out. The cricuit seems so cool I am just not sure if I would get my $$$ worth.

    It’s not really an "or" question — they do different things. What are you using it for?

    I have both (I’ve had the Cuttlebug for a few months and the Cricut Expressions just since this past weekend), and the Cricut doesn’t dry emboss. At the same time, the Cuttlebug is really designed for card-making and as such, can only handle small pieces of paper, so it can’t handle the high-volume that the Cricut can.

    I like my cuttlebug, but most of what I do is smaller projects.  If I had the money, I would buy a cricut right now, though.  A friend has one and it is awesome.  You do have to buy all of the cartridges, though, which can add up fast.  There are other computerized diecut machines out there that don’t require cartridges and let you make your own designs.  I guess it all depends on what you want to do with it.

    cost wise, they are different. A cuttlebug can be about $50, whereas a cricut can be $300!

    a super crafty friend of mine told me that the cricut seems to be plagued with problems. With miss cutting, the blades wearing down very fast and of course it be costly. 

    But it does look so cool on the infomercial.

    I agree that they are both different things.  I love my Cricut Expressions….I made wedding signs, scrapbooking pages, making decorations for baby showers/present wrapping.  Rebecca pretty much summed up the difference.

    I have both and I love both!!!!! I also have the Cricut Design studio which allows you to do way more with it, and allows you to hook it up to your computer and the design possibilities are endless….and our local scrapbooking stores allow you to rent the cartridges so you don’t have to buy them…it’s AWESOME!!!!
