    I received my Cricut for a Christmas gift 2 yrs ago and have tried using it several times since then for many things and I just don’t care for it. You have to use fairly thin or lightweight cardstock to get it to cut all the way through and lift crisp and cleanly from the sticky paper, even after increasing the depth of the cutter blade, etc. I keep going back to it thinking that the more I play with it and get used to it, the more I’ll like it. It’s just not happening and it just sits in the corner of my craft room, unused. I’m going to try to sell it. It’s a shame, too, because I have 6 cartridges to go with it. I really like my other die cut machines better, especially my Wizard, which not only cuts, but embosses, as well. My mother-in-law has the Cricut, too, and loves it. Seems to be a personal choice. I would recommend you try using a friend’s or one at a scrapbook store before you put out the money to be sure you’re going to like it and use it.
