I suggest that you total up how much you would spend on Etsy and then compare that price to what you would pay for a Cricut and any extra cartridges you might need, and then decide. I have used my Cricut a lot for our wedding items and I will continue to use it after the wedding, so for me, it has been very worth it. Also, just an FYI, neither Joanns or Michaels accepts coupons when you purchase the Cricut or the cartridges. You can use the coupons on the accessories though.

I have a cricut and have realized i can be ohh so frustrating when i have a lot to do. I would go the etsy route. also have to keep in mind that after several uses the matts will lose their stickiness. which means you have to buy more or go the removable adhesive route.

I would definitely say it depends on how much you plan on using it for non-wedding things. 

Perhaps ask around and see if any of your friends/family have a cricut? my sister has one so i’ll just be using hers, and prob just buying the cartridges i need.

it’s definitely a big investment.

@missmature: Which Cricut is it? There are lots of different models.

@missmature: That is a really good price, but it is probably for the personal one. Make sure you check out the Expression one. I am sure it is on sale too. It is bigger, and you will be able to do more with it. Give some thought to what you are going to use if for, and then decide on the size you need. I have the Expression because I knew I wanted to use it for more than just the little stuff.

@noritake22: Agreed. I have the Expression too.

If you DO invest in a Cricut, skip buying all the cartridges and download Sure Cuts A Lot. It really opens up what you can do with it. You can download tons of free fronts and dingbats and cut just about anything you want. It voids your warranty, but I haven’t had any issues with my Cricut so I’m not worried about that aspect.
