    Hi everyone,

    I enjoy all types of papercrafting, especially card making but looking around my craft room its more collecting craft tools than making cards lol...I also love die cutting and I am trying to start scrapbooking so I can use all my die cuts.
    I also love machine embroidery, making my own designs and seeing them stitched out is really great.
    I found your forum while looking for information on the Cricut I am looking to invest in one but cannot make up my mind between the Craft Robo or the Cricut.

    Hi Gozilla,
    Welcome to the forum I make allsorts of stuff mainly using recycled/repurposed materials. Machine embroidery sounds interested - do you have one of those fancy embroidery machines? If not I'd love to hear how you do it.

      Hello and welcome!

      Hello Zillah and to the forum from a fellow papercrafter! It's a nice forum here, I hope you can join in often so we can get to know you.

      I have been considering the cricut and the Craft Robo as well... I am leaning towards the Craft Robo at the moment because I am more computer orientated with my crafting. Just still not 100% sure and it's alot of money to spend and have made the wrong choice!!

      Look forward to getting to know you.

          Hi and welcome to the forum. I have owned both the cricut and the robo (still have the cricut). The robo is great if you are computer literate and very patient to learn, the downside to the robo is that it doesn't cut heavy cardstock. The cricut is so simple and easy to use and will cut through much thicker mediums than the robo, downside - you have to buy cartridges (these are quite cheap from the US) but the one it comes with has a lot on it so will keep you going for a while. Although the cricut is cheaper if you buy from the US if you do the warranty will be void so bare this in mind - buying cartridges from there is fine though.

              hiya and to the forum.

              I don't make cards, but wish I did - there are some lovely ones out there and the price the shops charge, we may as well buy home made unique ones!!

                    Thanks for such a warm welcome

                    Hi all,
                    Thanks for such a warm welcome...I am really looking forward to joining in all the discussions, this must be the next step to complete crafting...not just crafting but talking and sharing with like minded crafters.
                    My machine embroidery was how I began card making...I have several embroidery machines I was going into business but like most things they never pan out the way you want...not very business minded. I like to stitch out new designs to see how they look, You can imagine after a few years you have lots of designs on spare pieces of material...not into quilting yet I used then to make cards that was five years ago and since then I am well and truly addicted ha...
                    I love Sizzix have tried most die cutting machines and have so many dies but would love a cricut or Craft robo..mainly because the dies take up so much room ha ha...and I love my PC apart from a little housework and looking after my hubby and youngest son I spend most of my time crafting...I do have to work to support my hobby I should add ha...
                    if you check out my web page it might help although its about five years behind the times ha...Thanks again Zillah
