Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to use and fun! I thought it was just for cutting vinyl, but it can also draw, cut wood and leather, and lots of other things. I would go on YouTube and research how-to's and get an idea on where to start. It's a little addicting being able to customize so much.
I bought the explore 2 and the standard mats. I tried to make a sign to put on top of a cake. They told me I had to figure out the settings on my own because I wasn't using the Cricut proprietary card stock. Then I bought their card stock, and it wouldn't come off the standard grip mat. So they told me to buy the 'light' grip mat. I did. The card stock still keeps getting stuck and the paper falls apart. They won't take their product back if a month has gone by after the purchase date.
My advice: try any of the other brands. It can't possibly be more aggravating or expensive than Cricut.
I get all sorts of email about great with Mo instructions that explain how to collect them into my design space. At a scrap book retreat none of us could get phones or iPads to work with design space. Not exactly thrilled [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I recently purchase a Disney font and I am so in love with it, I am currently making T-shirt for my immediate family for our next trip to Disney all personalize with Mickey's face, hearts and fonts. I haven't finish them all yet but in the process. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
