    new cricut...

    Ok so cricut has to get on the ban wagon of being able to cut SVG files... check it out?

    What I don't understand is why they didn't make the current machines compatable... OH I know they need more sale of new machines! lol

    Can you tell I'm not a fan! lol

    I was never a fan of cricuts either. I never liked how nonversatile they were (I don't think that's a real word). There are so many cute SVG files out there for sale and for free.

    Yeah, I don't think I'll get this one. I'm more interested in the cameo at this point.

    Maria... if you don't have the cameo...don't purchase now... there will be a lot of good ones cheap for sale... but then you will need cartridges for it... you may want to consider this instead... or check out the knk zing.... watch videos on youtube.

    No Clarinda, cameos do not need cartridges.

    Maria, if you are really interested in a cameo, download the free program now and play around with it to get used it. Find some videos on how to use it too. The silhouette software supports studio and gsd files. If you want to use SVG files you would need to purchase the designer edition. It isn't much but places will have specials with some freebies; SVGCuts will offer the DE along with some credit for their stores.

    I am probably going to purchase one in the next year. It's so darn versatile! I was going through my embellishments for the weekend and am buying fewer and fewer.

    I have a cricut expression with a lot of cartridges, so I am not going to buy another one. All this SVG stuff, I am not familiar with. And I would think I would be by now....lol.

    If, in the future, I decide to buy another cutting machine, I will likely buy the cameo.

    Cricut does need to get with it on some of it products

    Agree with everything you said. I would need a one-on-one class so I could learn the SVG things.
