PostSubject: Electronic Die Cutter question   September 28th 2011, 14:27

I have a Cricut Expression, a Gypsy, and quite a few cartridges. Last year we built a new house and my scrapbook space went from a huge room to a small space in the corner of the master bedroom. I will get a scrapbook room when we finish the basement in our house but for now I'm squeezing into my cozy corner.

So......I've been thinking about selling my Cricut and accessories and getting a Silhouette because of the space issue AND I'm not intending to buy anymore Cricut cartridges.

Do any of you have a Silhouette, do you like it, how expensive is it to buy the cutting files for it?

Thanks for your help!

Awe, Becki... this makes me sad:(
I just love my Cricut stuff too much... I can't even imagine giving it all up.
But You must do want YOU want to do, girl!
If you decide to sell your carts you better leave me know first, lol! Wink

Andrea...HUGS to you! Don't be sad!! I love the Cricut. It really is a space and a $$ issue since I won't be getting free carts anymore Sad
I haven't completely decided to get rid of it all....just thinking about it. I'll let you know if i decide to get rid of anything, although I'm pretty sure we have most of the same cartridges Wink

I'm with you Becki. I have a Cricut Expression and a Gypsy and am considering getting rid of both for the Silhouette. I was really unhappy about the whole lawsuit thing between Provocraft and SCAL. The reason I purchased my Cricut was because I could use it with SCAL, allowing me to print fonts and images from my computer and svg files. I completely understand why they sued however, for my purposes of using the Cricut, I was disappointed because that was the reason I bought it. I just will not be buying cartridges that maybe have one image that I will use. I think I'll get much more use out of the Silhouette where I can just buy the images I want and not have to deal with the cartridges.....I've heard from a lot of people who have made the switch that they are completely happy with the Silhouette.

....Just my two cents!

I agree Sheri. I never did have SCAL but I did have a DT gig that got me free carts, without that I am not willing to pay the $$$ for new cartridges. Also the space thing for me is a big deal right now. I don't have room for all the cartridges. Humm...I think I'll decide what to do after I get back from vacation in the middle of Oct.

LOVE hearing all your opinions Smile
