You will love it. If you get the Sure Cuts Alot program then you can plug your Cricut into your computer and cut ANYTHING! You don't need those expensive cartridges. I use my cricut so much more now. The cartridges are SO expensive.
There are literally thousands of SVG files online for free.
Not to mention the fonts.
Cricuts are so much fun!!

I have the expression with the SCAL program...it's awesome. I recently learned how to convert files to an SVG file too. I thought it was hard but it's way easy. Now I don't have to search for free SVG files. If you are interested in learning, it's way simple!!!

Do you use Inkscape? Between the two of those programs the Cricut is way more useable!!!

Make sure you "unsticky" your mat first by putting your hands all over it first. There is a you tube video by cricut dan on this. The mat's are too sticky and paper is hard to get off. Once you do this it is cake. I've had the same mat for a year and use it very very often!
Enjoy! It is addictive!

yes, I use Inkscape with the SCAL program. I use Inkscape for other things also.

As for the mat, when it starts to stick less. Use goo gone all over and remove any trace adhesive. Wash and dry and then spray with the adhesive craft spray lightly. Viola...new mat. Haven't bought a new one yet. Works like a charm.
