I am looking to possible buy a new die cut machine. I currently have the Cricut Expression. What have you heard about any of the other ones on the market? Should I stick with my Cricut?

The Cricut is a great machine and if you enjoy using it, it's probably a good idea to stick with it. However, we really enjoy using the Vagabond machine from Sizzix. This machine requires dies that can be purchased separately, and it does not offer the option to change size and shape like the Cricut does. The Vagabond does have the strength, however, to cut up to seven sheets of cardstock at once. Another machine we like, similar to the Cricut, is the eclips, also from Sizzix. It cuts the same way the Cricut does and also require the use of cartridges. However, the eclips has a preview laser that allows you to see exactly where something will be cut, saving you tons of paper. Stop by your local Archiver's anytime and they'll be more than happy to show you one or both of these machines! Hope this helps!
