I just received my machine last Tuesday, October 25th and have used it everyday since. I have been wanting a die-cutting machine for over a year. This was definitely worth the wait. I have already finished one project (baby shower clock) and am using it to finish my other Christmas projects. I can't wait to get more cartridges, as I only have the two that came preloaded with the machine. Happy Scrapping!
After being unimpressed with the Cricut Imagine...I was very excited to get the Cricut Expression 2. I regretted selling the original expression after having so many issues with the Imagine. This machine is very easy to use and has new functions that are really great. I personally like the light on the cutting blade and the touchscreen so you can see where your image will be placed on the page so you do not waste paper. I have only used it a couple times but I think it was a great investment!
this was a LONG awaited and surprising gift I wanted it for a good 5 years it was given to me as a Christmas present and I really like it just be aware the mat does not stay sticky for long then you might try cleaning it or replacing it. I am not as happy with it as I thought I would be but if I were you I would check out the new siloutee America before investing. great machine but I was not impressed.
