I was wondering if anyone can give me some insight into the Cricut personal cutter vs Cricut Create?? I am trying to save money by DIYing a lot of the paper products in my wedding but I’m also short on time and I think the cricut will help tremendously in design/production. I’d rather spend less on a Cricut but just wanted to be sure I could still do what I wanted to do with the most basic model. Is there a big difference in functionality between the two models and is it worth the price difference? Can i accomplish what i want (table numbers, place cards, labels, programs, etc) with the personal cutter or would it be better to have the Cricut Create…the big difference I can see is the size of the cuts I’d be able to make. Is there anything else to consider? Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

I bought a cuttlebug for $50 and did my escort cards & favor tags I love it! Its more time consuming because you have to put everything thru it youself.

I originally bought the Cricut personal cutter but later upgraded to the expression. THe biggest difference to me was that when mass producing items, I can cut more on the Expression. With that being the only REAL difference that I use it for I say get the personal cutter. The Expression does LOTS of cool stuff but I’m not really using any of that for wedding stuff. Just my opinion…:-)
P.S. I’m not sure if they do it all over but on the last Friday of every month, you can go to Michael’s and for $5 use their Cricut and ALL their materials, cartridges, etc. for 5 hours!!! It’s great! I take my Cricuts and nass produce EVERYTHING! With my helpers in tow, it’s a great time saver.

I have a cuttlebug and used it for our invitations and what not…..I just bought a cricut personal and love it! I just can’t justify spending that much on the big one. But I also got the cricut on sale at Joann’s for 80 bucks! and….shop ebay for the cartridges…..they are less than $20 for them and they are brand new….tons cheaper!

I recommend getting the expression. It is bigger and you will save yourself a lot of time. You can make more cuts at one time with the expression. I have used it quite a bit for wedding related items. The personal one would not have allowed me to do everything that I have done so far. I also have the Cuddlebug, but I haven’t used it yet.
