I purchased my Cricut Expression a year ago and to be honest I really haven't used it near as much as I thought I would. I had big ideas and grand goals that never really developed into anything at all. I STRUGGLE with the stupid sticky mat and literally have thrown one away because I couldn't get the paper off of it. I know all you Cricut users are gasping right now but I was so frustrated that I just gave up. I know it's suppose to be super sticky to hold everything in place but when your project rips because the mat won't let go then whats the point! Anyways I have been looking at other options and I think I am going to sell it and get the Silhouette Cameo It's the same price as the Cricut but you don't have to buy the entire cartridge to get one image, which I have never really done that because I have the SCAL program. So wondering if any of you have the either machine and what are your thoughts on them?
