Clarification on Cricut Create

There's still some confusion on this machine. It has five of the functions of the large machine. It is being sold in the UK. It is Michaels exclusive for at least six months. It is $299 at Michaels, and comes with the Don Juan cartridge.

Wal-Mart has the Cricut Expressions for $289 with Plantin Schoolbook. This takes 12 x 12 paper/mats (as well as 12 x 24 mats) and the Cricut and Cricut Create only take 6 x 12 paper/mats. Unless I'm really missing something, I'd sure go with the Cricut Expressions at Wal-Mart. If you have the original baby bug, buy the Design Studio software and you'll have all of the functions of the Cricut Create & MORE!!! I can't recommend the Cricut Create at all unless you a) hate computers, b) don't like large machines, or c) you just want the Don Juan cartridge and a & b apply. If I'm missing something, feel free to leave a comment...

  1. I feel the same way. I have the baby bug and the big E. I will not waste my money on another cricut machine when mine can do everything I need.
