For years I used my Cricut Explore and loved it. Then I bought a Silhouette. Oh my let the creativity flow. Sadly I have not used my Cricut since I discovered the flexibility and open forum of the silhouette. While I do find myself purchasing individual designs price wise per use I'm spending less than the cartridge I would have had to purchase for the Cricut and I have more flexibility to modify the designs, shapes and sizes. As well as create from scratch. The possibilities seem endless.
My most recent Fun included an intro and closing page for the Safari Annual Auntie Week. These animals were purchased from the Silhouette library and customized to meet the needs of my pages.
