Check out the Cricut Create!

By combining the size and portability of the Personal Electronic Cutter, with the bells and whistles of the Expression, this middle of the line die cutter known as the Cricut Create is quickly becoming a favorite among crafters.  Although the Expression is the most popular die cut machine by Provo Craft, the Create runs a close second, especially for those who like its portable size for attending scrapbooking crops and swarms, as well as crafters needing a smaller machine that can be easily stored in a closet between uses.

This die cut model typically comes with the Don Juan cartridge.  However, all Cricut cartridges are cross-compatible, and can be used with any of the three machines.  There are now more than 100 different cartridges available, providing plenty of versatility for any paper crafting projects.  The Create can also be used with the Design Studio Software, as well as the Gypsy - both allow users to modify and customize the cuts on the cartridges - for example, by welding individual letters together to make custom words and phrases.
