I did not DIY my invivations but I use my cricut daily. What are you looking to do? You could ABSOLUTELY DIY your invites. Easy! I chose not to because I fell in love with a local person and am doing so many DIY things I didn’t miss the invites. But you can DIY them for sure with a cricut!

I love my Cricut machine! If you look at my DIY post, I made them all with my Cricut.

If you are a crafty person, I say go for the DIY invites. I opted not too because I am a perfectionist and I know the smallest wrong detail would set me off. I also compared the price to making them with the price of ordering them (through Vistaprint.com) and it is cheaper to order. I plan of adding some embellishments and some inserts.

I received my Cricut expression 2 as a gift from my fiancee.

I sometimes think I should have bought the Shilouette. Mainly because the reviews say the images are cheaper. You can buy individual images as opposed to buying a whole cartridge.

My advice for you before you buy is to go to the Shilouette website and browse through the images. Do the same on the Cricuts website and see which brand has more images you would want to use.

If you end up buying the Cricut, I would be more than happy to answer any question you have or give you any tips.

Cricut can cut fabric, vinyl, and chipboard. It just requires different settings and/or a housing and blade.
