Cricut Expression 2--and take a look--at "CraftRoom"

This bug:
  1. operates via WiFi
  2. cuts from both regular and Imagine carts
  3. uses a screen instead of the plastic overlay (they will continue to make overlays for the carts for a few years)
  4. has a light near the blade housing
  5. you can save settings, but the blade does have to be manually adjusted (kind of by its nature)
  6. and today is just day 2 of CHA!

CraftRoom is a new online tool designed to work with Design Studio. It's an online design site which will be free at first--I'm sure you'll still have to have the carts to do the cutting.  Great news for MAC users--it's both PC and MAC compatible.

I got this from Joy, whose blog you simply must visit--she is an incredible crafter and a wonderful person altogether!

Statement from Provo Craft:
