I have found that the website for Hallmark Scrapbook will have the cheapest prices for all of the cartridges. Last Christmas, I bought 12 cartridges and only spent about $150 (qualified for free shipping icon_smile.gif )

If you watch that site, they will have several specials on the machines as well.

I purchased my expression machine off ebay for about $200 thumbs_up.gif and it came with 2 cartridges. I had the baby (original) machine before that -- I bought that one at Sam's Club for $225 thumbsdown.gif (but it came with 3 cartridges, 4 cutting mats, the tool kit and 4 extra blades).

you just have to be patient with the purchase ... when the timing is right -- you will know icon_biggrin.gif

Hope this isn't a stupid question, but how do you clean the blade after using it to cut gumpaste or fondant?
I have a Cricut, but haven't used it yet because I don't want to ruin the blade. Anyone?

I just got the Cricut Expression (craigs List) but I thought I couldn't use it for gumpaste unless I had the deepbut blade? Not the green one but the purplish/blue one.....I would love it if I could use it now without waiting for my blade.....thx

Depends on how thin you can get your gumpaste . . .

This may be a common sense question, but...

If I use the Cricut with gumpaste, can my sis use it for scrapbooking still? Just wondering if switching mediumns has an effect on the machine.

It can still be used for all you Scrapbooking needs! I would just use a different needle! It was built to last! LOL icon_smile.gif

It's a Cricut (pronounced just like cricket, the bug) and it's a computerized system for cutting paper. Clever cake people have adapted it for use with cutting gumpaste and fondant. If you do a search on "Cricut" (not circuit), you will find a TON of reading about this wonderful tool. You can also go to www.cricut.com

i am also very intrigued by the cricut and spent last night reading about it. it sounds perfect for those of us whose fine motor skills aren't so fine.
what i haven't figured out is getting one for under $150.
i'm assuming that the $99 machines were bought on sale - please correct me if i'm wrong.
