    I don’t own either, but I have been able to play with my neices Cricut and I thought it was very easy to use, and it seemed there was alot to do with it. I am really wanting to buy one for myself.

    I am not too familiar with  silhouette. I do have a cricut and literally just got sure cuts a lot 2 a couple of days ago and I am completely obsessed with it! It is fabulous! So obviously that is my preference. 🙂

    I voted for Silhouette SD because I just got one for Christmas. Have not used it yet but the reason I chose it over the Cricut is because I did not want to buy cartridges. I like being able to buy individual designs and using any font you want. Not sure how much sure cuts a lot cost, but that would have been an added expense. Plus the Sil was cheaper. It also has the drawing pen feature and can do rhinestone appliques. So far after looking at tutorials on you tube it looks very easy to use.

    Yes, there is quite a difference between the personal and the Expression. I have the Cricut Create (which is between the personal and the expression). That may be a good solution for you. I have been using my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 allllll day today and it really is awesome. You can get an image from the internet and it can cut it out for you. I doubt I will ever need to buy a cartridge other than the one that cam e with it. You can get an instant download of SCAL2 for $49.95. It is totally worth it in my opinion.

    I would definitely recommend getting the Expression.  There’s a huge difference in space available.

    I haven’t used Sure Cuts a Lot, but I’ve used Make the Cut, which is similar.  I don’t cut anything with the cartridges and only with the program.

    I love working with sure cuts alot, its very easy to use and theres lots of tutorials out there on how to make you own svgs and use all the features.

    I would definitely go with the Expression it can cut up to 12in x 24in, where as the personal only cuts 6×12. You can cut more at once or do larger projects.

    @snuggles, I just completed my invites on my Silhouette. They came out GREAT!!! It is all a matter of preference. After my research, I decided that I did not want to buy cartridges and I can buy individual images, plus they offer a free image every week.

    I did not wnat to buy software which is why I decided against the Cricut.
