    I’ve been thinking of getting a cricut. I don’t even own a laptop yet. 🤦‍♀️🤣 With that said and I’ve never used a cricut would you jump all in with the maker or start slowly with the joy? Also, is it easier to use with a Mac or does it matter? I haven’t decided what kind of laptop I need either. I usually jump in with both feet then panic for a little while. 🤣🤣🤣

      I heavily suggest a Silhouette, and this comes from someone that owns a Cricut. They are notorious for making their machines obsolete, to the point they do not work. Their software is also shaky at bet and can not be depended upon to work often times due to it being internet based. Lastly, the company has been wrought with scandal through out their existence-the last being that they were going to limit outside uploads unless people subscribed to their Access program. They decided this to lure in shareholders as they are trying to go public. They did back pedal some on that after a massive uproar and threats of class action law suits for false advertisement, which also threatened them going public. So now they slipped in the caveat that machines registered before the end of the year will have unlimited uploads, but who knows what they will decide 2022. I am willing to bet Explores will rapidly become obsolete and unusable, so they can force new machines with limited uploads. I suggest loads of research and proceed with caution, if you choose Cricut.

        Thank you also for your response!!! I may have to do a little research on silhouette.

      I would start with the Cricut joy. It’s simple, small, but it does the same things that the other big ones do. The price, when it’s on sale, is also great. You can use it with a laptop, desktop, iPad or even iPhone. I had a bigger one and recently purchased the joy back in December and I love it! I have done so many things with it, signs for our high school swim team, shirts, big wooden signs, cards, stickers, etc. you will not regret it.

        Thank you so much for your response!!!

    How do I register my machine? Thank you!!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I found this information:
      Open Design Space for Desktop.
      Choose New Machine Setup from the menu in the upper left corner.
      Select your machine.
      Follow the on-screen prompts.

    I recently got a Cricut for mother’s Day. There are a few things I wish I knew. You need either a windows PC, Laptop, or an apple device to get the app to work fully. Android and Chromebook versions are really lacking, sometimes un-useable. Also, Cricut is very greedy. They charge for 90% of the products in the app, as in fonts, etc…so they can really get you there. It feels like they are charging you rent to use the machine you just paid $300 dollars for, plus materials…almost not worth it .

    • Krystal

      This is why I have never bought even a joy despite my interest. It’s truly a “hobby” every aspect of it costs money and simple project really are pricey if you add it all up. I can’t spend that much on a machine to spend more on every time I want to use it.

    I own a cricut maker. I enjoy using it but find that there’s Always a glitch or a software bug and they have to shut down and then you have to update. I would consider looking into a silhouette.

    • NikkiLLM5

      Good to know!

  5. Mamamia

    So something many may not know : you spend x amount on the machine but then you spend an extra $150 or more to buy the staples to get the machine going :different types of vinyl, transfer paper, heat press, stylus, pens, scraper or other accessory set needed to use vinyl, etc etc.
    I was able to score my cricut 2 through amazon warehouse for $100 a couple months back…but heck if I had just spend$400 only to spend another $15, o would put up a fit!

    And no you don’t need to buy a monthly subscription.

    • NikkiLLM5

      That’s what I’m thinking. Since I’m starting from nothing how much am I going to spend just to get started? 😫
