Great first machine
I have had this machine since it firstcame out. I now use it with adults with disabilities training them how to use the machine. It is a great starter machine for those just getting into making cards or other paper crafts.

I love my cricut machine it is wonderful. It is very easy even my 11 year old daughter can use it and does for many school projects. I love that you can make different sizes.

This was my first Cricut machine. It is very handy for travelling but does not have as many features as the Expression. It is a great starting point.

Good Cutter- not big enough
This was the first cricut machine I bought. It cuts well and was a great little machine. The only problem I had is not really with the machine, but I found that it just wasn't big enough. Only uses 6x12 in paper and that was a pain to cut all paper down to be able to use it. I would recommend the expression if you are thinking of buying a machine, as it has more features and I think is easier to use.

I simply LOVE my Expression. I also own the Baby Bug--but after a couple of months, I realized that I liked the flexibility of the more advanced machine. Still use my baby every now and again.

The personal electronic cutter was my first Cricut machine. Affectionately called "the baby bug" is so easy to use and portable. It's easy to keep handle for really quick little projects. I'll never get rid of my baby bug.

The Little Cricut That Could
The Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter Machine was my first die cutting machine. I have been hooked on Cricuts ever since. I now own the personal cutter, the expression and an E2. I kept my personal cutter because it's a great little machine and much easier to take to crops. I also let my daughter (age: 8) use the personal cutter to make die cuts for her friends, etc. It's easy to use and a great assest to my scrapbooking arsenal. The Cricut machine is a must have item for my scraproom.

Bought in 2006 and still going strong!
I got my baby Cricut in 2006 and it is still going strong! It is used almost every day and I have never had a moments trouble. Cricut works hard to make sure all of their products are well made and built to last, so I never worry one second about spending my money on any Provo Craft or Cricut product, as I know I will get MORE than my money's worth.

Love it, but very loud
Just love my cricut expression, but it is very loud when cutting the images out that I need. When you have alot of images to cut the noise of the machine really gets on you nerves.

I think the personal cutter is ok, but feel like most ladies that I teach move on to the expression very quickly. So for the money it is well worth buying the expression.

The cricut is easy to use and does so much. Whether scrapbooking or making cards, I use it a lot and it helps me finish my projects in record time.

Great little workhorse
The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because it lacks the features of the Create...but it's a great little machine and I can't imagine NOT crafting without a Cricut.

I had a hard time deciding between this item and the imagine. I went with this one because it's small and I store it away when I'm not using it. It cuts great and I use it for just about all my scrap booking. The PERFECT machine for someone who doesn't have a lot of space.

Like Magic !
I wanted a Cricut since they came out, but got a Cuttlebug instead. LOVED my CB, but still wanted the Cricut. Fast forward 5 years, and I was able to get the baby bug from a friend who upgraded. My only issue is that I wish I had a 12 x 12 mat, and maybe one day when someone gets the next best thing, I can get an Expression. I am so happy that PC created the Cricut Craft Room because it gives the baby bug all the functionality you could hope for.

I had my original Cricut for about a year and a half, used it carefully and bought lots of costly accessories. My grandson loved the crafts we created together. Then one day it just stopped working. Customer service essentially told me ,That's too bad. Now I hesitate to upgrade to a more expensive machine that may only work until the warranty expires.

I've had this machine sitting in the closet for 3 years. Never used it, never plugged it in...and then I took a basic class at a scrapbook store and took it with me. I should never have been intimidated..it does exactly what I wanted it to do and I love it. On the way home for class I stopped at JoAnn's and bought 2 cartridges!

My Husband bought this for me a few weeks back and I love it!!! I had been wanting one and he surprised me with this. I can not wait to buy more stuff for it. It's very easy to use and it's really cool.

I have had this machine for almost a year now. I had to have one after using a friend's to make some vinyl letters for my rec league cheerleaders. I LOVE it. I personalize everything for my daughters. When my oldest went to camp this summer even her soap dish had her initials on it. It's a great way to make cute crafts, gifts, and of course to scrapbook. I could NOT be any more pleased. I love this little toy!

I bought mine in 2008 but did not use till 2 years ago. I didn't know what I was missing. I use it now all the time with my grand kids, and they make their own cards for Christmas, Valentine's day, St Patrick, birthdays, and etc.

tried 8 times to do the firmware updates, then it freezes and nothing will seem to get it to unfreeze.
