I don’t have one but would love one!  I checked Ebay and there are a a lot of vendors selling them for $270 with free shipping.  Worth a try to save the money.

I am using my sister’s Cricut right now.  Honestly I bought cartridges off of Ebay that are normally 30-60 bucks for ten dollars and free shipping.  There is a new Cricut Mini coming out that cuts 12×12 paper.  I am waiting for that one.  They also have an online store opening as well.  I have been debating both machines for awhile and will probably go with the Cricut.  I know its an investment but think of all the money you will save making all your own paper products!

Originally I had been looking at the Expression, but after reading a heap of people reviews, and also wanting to have more freedom with designs you do, I went the way of the Silhouette Cameo. The cutting of the Silhouette is also superior as the Cricut often rounds edges that are meant to be square/sharp. I definitely think its worth your extra $$. It does seem expensive, but I personally wouldn’t bother with the cheaper ones after seeing this one.
And if you are going to use it quite a lot just think of what you will save on buying die cuts and letterings etc.

If possible go somewhere that you can have a demo and see the machine in action.

Good luck! And if you do get one, be sure to let everyone know what you think 🙂

I’m planning on going to a workshop at Paper Source sometime in the near future–they have the Cameo’s in-store and if they aren’t busy or you make an appointment, they’ll show you how to use it and let you play with it.

@daisy40:  I just bought one off of OhMyCrafts for $202 (with a online coupon)! They are backordered until mid Feb, but it is worth the wait. I got the Silhouette SD last year and I have used it like everyday, this machine is worth the money!
