Been watching this for over a month but couldnt justify the price on my budget, others charging up to £300 for it. Crafters love this machine as you do design on the internet and the machine prints them out for you when your ready, cards, boxes, flowers, t-shirts, cups, signs, etc. etc. Watch the Youtube videos to see what it can really do. Its so amazing, only thing is will it drop more or should I give in a buy now??? One went secondhand on Ebay this week for £210??? Maybe a short lived price glitch?

Hmmmm. I don't really see the point. :|

So it's a printer that cuts things out?

Silhouette cameo 3 just launched so cameo 1 and 2 probably cheaper.... Uses any font on your pc, many thousands of designs and can do larger pieces too

Is imagination really that hard?

Crafty is the lowest form of creativity.

I'm trying to think how someone like Stefan Sagmeister would use such a device.

I've got a Cricut Explore. I was lucky enough to get it cheap from the Amazon Warehouse Deals. They are good machines and can be used for a lot of creative things. You can also cut a wide variety of materials with them whereas as I don't think the silhouette cuts as many. I'm impressed that the silhouette can cut larger pieces though and you can also use their software offline which is a bonus. I've heard you can design things with their software too which is good. You have to be connected to the Internet for the cricut. Unless you use the app. ;) I think the £200 is a good price considering the Explore One is the same price. Hobbycraft is selling the air with a bundle for £60. Just depends if the added bundle is worth the extra £60. ;)

You're entitled to your opinion but it sounds like you don't have a clue about the different types of crafting out there. To say it's the lowest form of creativity is quite an ignorant opinion to have. Says a lot more about you than the people who enjoy crafting. X)

It is a great price. I have a Silhouette Cameo though so can't really justify buying this. The software for the Silhouette is pretty amazing and I've not had any difficulty in creating designs or pulling images from the Internet and converting them to a cut file.

My favourite toy ;) I would love to try this one out though just to see its capabilities with cutting thicker mediums which the cameo struggles with!

I got the cricut air business edition (came with accessories) on Amazon prime day for £180 and I was so disappointed. The blade wouldn't cut the card design on the card provided that you have to do to complete the basic set up. It just sort of half cut, half tore the card.

I also had a go at the software in the iPad and thought it wasn't great.

I sent it back and can tick it off the list of things I wanted to try X)

I REALLY wanted it to work smoothly as the idea of cutting fabrics and all of the other things like vinyl for stencils or decorations really interests me, as well as the card making.

I got so frustrated with it and hated the software that I don't think I'll be willing to give it a go until a different, newer model comes out as the cricut air and I did not get on :(

Here's one of the cards I attempted, following the instructions and using the frustrating software...it was supposed to say 'Happy Ruby Wedding Anniversary Bid & Ed'.

This can happen when the settings are not right for the item you are cutting, you have to do a trial first and adjust the settings to make sure its cutting properly, the thicker the card the more higher a pressure setting you have to apply. Hope that helps but this is normal for beginners, its a setting problem not a machine problem.
