I'm interested in trading for cartridges I don't have... so list any you're willing to swap in your comments

Power Problems

Hi, I just bought a Cricut Expression off of eBay, brand new never been used. It came today but when I set it up and tried to use it, the LCD display doesn't come on and none of the buttons are responsive. I'm just devastated because I was so looking forward to playing with it today! Has anyone else ever had this issue? Is it just my bad luck? I emailed the eBay seller and if nothing else I hope I can exchange this one for a new one, but I would much rather make this one work! Thanks in advance!

Best and Worst Cartridges

My favorite: Wild Card
If all of the cartridges were this good, I'd have bought them all this week. I love all the variety of cards I can make and since I use it more for cards than scrapbooking, this is the one I'd recommend every one have.

Most disappointing: Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More
It should be labeled a bunch of useless tags, a few bags and boxes, and the more is just a lie. Also there is no way that I can tell to judge the size of the boxes. I ended up making a supposedly 7 inch box to get a 5 1/2 inch box for a cd.

What are yours and why?

Sale and new to group

Cricut cartridges are $39.99 at Michael's this week. The design studio is $49.99.

I just got the Cricut Expression from my mother as a gift a week ago with a number of cartridges. I bought the design studio yesterday and installed it on the computer last night, so now I'm tired after playing on it too late. I have never scrapbooked before, but I have two babies so the opportunities are ripe for me. So far I have only used the machine to make cards and a small gift bag, but I'm pretty excited about the possibilities. I've been playing with google looking for example projects and also for information on fabric cutting (I'm a quilter and sew quite a bit).

Cricut Jukebox on sale!

Just a note: The cricut jukebox is on sale at Michaels for $59.99 until Saturday!!

Big Sale!


So, I'm very interested in getting a Cricut, but I'm wondering how "worth it" it will be. I'm in college, so even getting a discounted one on E-bay for $100 is a big buy for me, and I want to make sure it's not going to be a waste. Do you really love your Cricut as much as the people on the commercial claim? Has it really been worth it to you monetarily (i.e., do you save money by doing your own stuff instead of buying them at a store?)?

I guess what I'm probably worried about the most is the whole cartridge deal--how many cartridges do you have? How many would you say you "need" to make the Cricut worthwhile? I can't seem to find a place that shows exactly what shapes come with a cartridge. Does each cartridge come with multiple fonts or only one? A few shapes or many?

Also, as I'm looking at buying options, where would you say are the best deals? It looks like you can cut about $150 off by doing E-bay, but I wasn't sure if there were packages (machine + several cartridges) available somewhere.

Finally, are there any similar machines that you've used? Which do you prefer?

Thanks for all your help!!
