Look What I Bought…

As you may know, I’ve owned a Silhouette Cameo cutter since 2012.  I love it, love the cuts I get with it, but one thing that has been giving me problems over the past 6 months or so was the Print and Cuts.  Print and Cuts are when you print an image on cardstock and then place it on your mat and let the machine cut around it.  Mine was cutting off to one side so I was never getting a good result.  I love me some Print and Cuts so this was really disappointing because, as far as I knew, Silhouette Cameo was the only machine that did that.  But then came the Cricut Explore.  I used to own a Cricut Create but you had to purchase cartridges to obtain your cutting file.  Not so with the Explore.  Just like the Silhouette Cameo, you could cut any image you have on hand .. whether it be an svg, png, jpg or other. This was fantastic news!  So, with my birthday money in hand, I set off to find me a Cricut Explore.  As of last week, I am now the proud owner of a new Cricut Explore. Yay me!!  And ohhhhh what incredibly wonderful Print Then Cuts you can achieve with it! Wowza!!

That is really neat! Hope you are enjoying your new diecutting machine! I'm still sticking with the regular cricut, but I can see why people would like it! :)
