My friend Cynthia is toying between a Cricut & a Silhouette (or Cameo or other electronic, hook up to the computer cutter.) On the one hand, the Cricut has shapes. On the other, you have to buy cartridges...as opposed to just using free fonts you can download & cut on a different machine.
I have a Cricut Expression, and all I can really do it hit some buttons and, most times, cut the image I was hoping for. I have had a Wishblade since they released them, and I love it...but I can't do the shapes and stuff on it. I'm just not tech savvy enough to figure it out. Most of you out there own one or the other, and some of you may have both or be looking to change. you're Cynthia's best resource!
So...which do you own? Which do you prefer? Please post your opinions and WHY (or why NOT) below to help Cynthia figure out which is the better choice for her.
Thanks in advance!
