I have the Cricut Expression 2 but I’ve never used it (got it for xmas and haven’t had anything to make yet) so I can’t really give you any tips or anything. I’ve heard it’s awesome though! If I would have had it when I was wedding planning it would have made my life soooooooo much easier.

I have a cricut expression and I absolutely love it!  I am a beginner, and it was a hand me down from a more experienced crafter.  They gave it me because they didn’t like being confined by the cartridges.  They work fine for me right now, but that might just be because I haven’t used it for much.  I have heard that the zing is more expensive, but that it lets you do whatever you want.

My Mother-In-Law has the original cricut, and had never used it, I pulled it out of the box the other day and used it for the first time. I absolutely fell in love. I did all of our table numbers with it and the cartrige that came in the box. They came out fantastic, and I will definately be using it for future DIY wedding things along the way. Its so easy to use, and makes life so much easier

@jhoyle7608:  You should try the free software on http://www.cricut.com it makes using the cricut so much more fun, you actually get to see how your projects will be laid out before you cut them, and you can weld letters together to form whole words……oh I could just go on and on

@dancingunderthestars:  Nope SCAL will not work anymore, unless you have a first generation cricut and can find a secondhand copy of the software. (It’s not for sale anymore). Cricut.com has some neat free software though and you can get the cartridges on sale quite often so that does help with the costs a bit. Also a friend of mine and I do a cartridge swap every once and a while so that we get to enjoy a larger amount of images at half the cost 🙂
