Am buying a cricut machine. In the future will you be using the cricut maker 3 more?
Hi Beverly! Congratulations on your new machine. We use the Cricut Maker for at least 90% of our projects on this site and provide the SVG files for the cutting machines. Hope this helps.
This has been such a great and informative video – thank you! I definitely feel like I have much more information about cutting machines if I want to take the next step and purchase one. Up to now I have been cutting by hand the felt patterns for all the stuffies I make for friends and family, which is definitely fun but it does limit me to the designs that I can actually cut by hand. Adding a machine would definitely expand my crafting horizons…thank you once again!
You are going to LOVE having a machine. It will really change your craft world. 😉
This is by far the best informative video on cutting machines. The tips on using the machines are invaluable and very helpful. I love that she doesn’t spend a lot of time going on about her personal journey, etc. She gets to the point and any personal references to the machines make a point about using the machine. THIS WAS VERY HELPFUL IN COMPARING THE MACHINES AND THEIR BENEFITS.
Thank you, Susan!
Thank you, that’s helpful. And you have managed to get my shortlist down to two, but I still cannot decide between the Cricut and the Maker.
I was drawn to the Cameo because Cricut ties you to their software, and that software lives in the cloud. It seems you might be able to use 3rd party design apps such as Make the Cut for the Cameo. But, honestly, I don’t know if this will be an issue any time soon. And the Circut machines seem to be more common here in the UK, which might mean an easier time getting additional tools and consumables.
Maybe I will toss a coin. Heads or tails, thanks again.
Hi Zack. I hear you! If you are comfortable with software the Cameo does give more flexibility. The Cricut software can be frustrating sometimes. The machines themselves, the Cricut are solid where the Cameo feels like plastic. I wish we could just merge the best of both for the perfect machine.
Lia this was a really valuable course. I know next to nothing about cutting machines, but I know I want to get one after cutting out several files by hand. The different topics you covered answered so many of my questions. Thank You!
I’m so glad this was helpful Sandra!
Do you ever use the Cricut maker to cut the fringe? I have a hard time make thin, even cuts.
We have but it definitely depends on the paper, stickiness of the mat, etc! Fringe or micro tip scissors are usually our best bet.
I’ve just watched this course – 11 Things to Consider Before Buying a Cutting Machine. It was so helpful in making my decision. Thank you.😀
It was interesting to see the machines side by side. I love my Maker!
So Do I Cynthia I bought Myself 1 foy 50th Birthday I use it Everyday and am Going to Start a Little Business It cuts so Many Things With it 😃
