Is this a good one to get? I was going to get the regular Cricut but if this one is better I just might have DH get one for me for Christmas. icon_lol.gif

How can this be? I know the price has gone down but this seems "too good to be true". What's the catch?

I have bought from them before and never had a problem. It is only a one day sale then the price goes back up.

Seriously?! That does seem too good to be true. I have been wanting one of these for a long time. Don't know if I would use it that much, but you can't beat that pric3e icon_smile.gif

Quite a good price. I bought one a while ago at JoAnn's for $99, but returned it before using. (wasn't sure if it would really work well with fondant and gumpaste). For this price, I may just give it a try again. Thanks for the link!

I am partial to the Silhouette Cameo due to the fact that you run it through the your PC, but that is a great deal!!!

Works perfectly once you learn how to use it. I ONLY use modeling chocolate with mine never been able to do use gumpaste or fondant. Modeling chocolate works very cool and easy.

I sure hope it is a legit website. I just ordered mine. I have a cricut that I use for scrapbooking. The no shipping cost was an added bonus!

ok so I have wanted one a long time, read very bad to very good about them , price is right so I am going to order it. Did it on Pay Pal, I work for a credit card company and will watch this like a hawk . will let you all know. Crossing fingers, I know there are companies this happens too but watch your card on line or call and check your charges and balances often, Change your number on the card if you are concerned at all. The banks will help you block or put a hold on the cards and work with you to clear them up. Best wishes everyone. and I hope it all works out

Thanks for the warning on the card scam/paypal scam that is the risk for this link.

I saw the warning after purchasing through them, but luckily I paid with Paypal.
I recieved an email this morning saying:

Quote:

Dear Value Customer,


We regret to inform you that some of your personal data (full name, email, home phone number, etc) are incorrect .Please re-enter your personal data correctly.




This was (apparently) from Paypal, and me being half asleep, I clicked on the link. It said that my account was restriceted & it was asking me for my full name, address, email address, date of birth & all credit card details. I could tell that is was fake & went onto the proper Paypal site which was all normal.

The sender's address from the email is [email protected]

As I said before, thanks you for the warning, as I made sure that I removed all card & bank details from my Paypal account after the transaction for the Cricut machine had gone through.

Glad you were able to catch this before anything else went fishy. I`d continue watching your information just in case anything else does pop up.

HTH

Do a Google search on reviews for the original site posted. There are many people complaining of credit cards/Paypal being charged for purchases they did not make through the original site, or being scammed in other ways.

It is a risk, so buyer beware. The link I posted to some of the reviews is here: http://www.twopeasinabucket.co.....id=3055135

As far as I know it's not a fraudulent site, but I don't think their security is very good. I will let you know when my order arrives.

you can buy the mini and regular cricut cake on ebay for low prices. I think from people who haven't had much luck with them. That would be my guess.

Also I have seen them discounted for clearance at many stores and even on HSN they were marked down along with the cartridges

Has anyone gotten the Martha stewart cake cartridges? I have a total of 6 cartridges if I include my regular cricut. I just need time to play with them.

I have heard great things about the frosting sheets to use with the cricuts how do I find them? (not wilton.)

The premium sheets from icingimages.com work the best for me. I've tried other brands and they tend to slide off the backing when cutting. I trim a little off each side of the sheet( leaving the backing) and tape the backing to the cutting mat. I have no problem cutting small, detailed images.

labmom Posted 15 Nov 2011 , 7:34pm

I agree they did come off the backing when I did try the one from cricut

Do you put the crisco or shortening on the matt to hold it? or just use the tape?
