I love my cricut! Well, more specifically, my mother’s cricut. Right now I’m making signs using them. They’re fantastic. I saw them on sale yesterday, I believe it was at Michael’s. They also have a 50% off coupon on their site, but not sure if it would work for that!

I use mine for scrapbooking as well. If you’re not a big scrapbooker or card-maker, I don’t think I would bother buying it for just the wedding. If you’re going to use it outside of wedding-related DIY projects, though, I think it’s worth the investment!

It depends on how much DIY cards and scrapbooking you do.  I brought one but I didn’t actually use it that much for my wedding stuff because it didnt’ look as classy as I thought it would be.  you have to also factor in all the extra mats and blades you’ll have to buy.  When it the mat lose it’s stickiness or the blades are dull the cuts looks horrible. I used mine to make escort cards and I needed at least 2 mats.  Overall I’ve purchased about 4 mats for wedding projects and changed the blades once.  They say you can restick the mats yourself but I couldn’t get it to work very well.

@Shoppingdixie: Hmmm…, maybe I can borrow yours when you are done 🙂 I’ve never heard of a cricut until I started reading weddingbee. I see what they can do and I am intruiged to say the least.

I got mine on ebay too, I used it a bit on wedding things and now that the wedding is over I am finding more uses for it, still not 100% it was worth the investment but now that I have it I want to try and make the most out of it!

I want a cricut, but I’m not sure it’ll be the best investment for our wedding projects.  I mentioned it casually to SO, and so he went out and researched the holy heck out of it, and after a long conversation on the subject we decided that we probably don’t need it right now.  Doesn’t mean I don’t want it, though!

And if I’m lucky, I’ll be able to change his mind.  I’ve got some serious scrapbooking projects I want to start, and I’ve convinced myself that they just won’t be as fabulous unless I have that darned cricut!
