  • The best money ever spent

    Omg I love my cricut so much that so am actually writing a review. I have had it for a week thus far and have literally used it or designed something everyday. Im going craft crazy and I love it!!! Its also awesome that I can pay monthly on this thing because for some odd reason it just feels better paying in small portions. But this machine is well worth the money. The only thing I didnt like is that it didnt come with many start up supplies, I get it , the company want to make money but for the price we should at least get a 2 pad of different strengths. But over all BEST MONEY EVER SPENT IF YOUR A CRAFTER!!!
