    Some of them take ages to make Keith.
    For example many of the Disney characters are made up from several layers, with each layer being one of the different colours of their attire and some of those bits can be really tiny.

    You could always take out the inserts Keith then mail them to someone else, simply putting in a new insert!

    I've had mine for almost 2 years, I guess, and I make all our cards.

    There are 2 Mickey cartridges (one contains mostly figures and one has Disney fonts), 2 Pooh cartridges, 2 Princess cartridges, a Cars cartridge, and a Tinker Bell cartridge. And there are tons of non-Disney related ones as well. For example, there are 3 different Christmas cartridges.

    There are cartridges for travel, sports, etc. And the nice part about the Cricut is that you are not limited to just the size that many of the other die cut machines create. My Cricut Expressions can cut things from 1/4 inch all the way up to approximately 23 inches, I think, and everything in between. The smaller Cricut doesn't have quite the variety of sizes, but they both use the same cartridges.

    Thanks wdwgrandma Im so tempted

    the expression can even do glass etching and vinyl I think and definitely seems the one to have

    Are they really hard to use though and do I need a computer?

    Yes, they can create the stencils you'd use for glass etching, and you can cut vinyl to create wall "pops".

    I think the Cricut is super easy to use, and you don't need a computer unless you want to purchase and install Cricut Design Studio - which is a great item tool! It allows you to create your own "welded" words, or items such as the Mickey Snowman on this year's Christmas cards.

    I meant to ask, does it take standard card or do we have to order special things from cricut themselves?

    My DW uses all sorts of card and paper. There is no need to get any special stationary.
