I’m somewhat tempted. I have a first-generation Cricut (Old School … hollah!). I think they call it the Baby Bug. I don’t use it all that much but I sometimes do, especially at scrapbook retreats where I can set it up for an entire weekend and use the heck out of it.
I’ve resisted the computer-dependence part of an electronic die-cutter which I know has me way behind the times. But when I think about a Silhouette Cameo, the cost, having to sell all my Cricut stuff because the carts, Jukebox, and tools will be useless … well, then I change the subject and move on.
Anyhow, I’m thinking about the Cricut Mini now. That video was very helpful. It’s small enough I could keep it hooked up on my desk. I can use my existing cartridges plus Cricut Craft Room. I’d get a tool kit. It’s cheap. And it will work with my Mac.
