What is the latest on the Cricut?  I have a Cameo and I hate it.  You have to roll the gumpaste so thin.  I just can't get it right. I do love being able to scan any image in, though.  I was reading old posts about ways to use the cricut, but they are no longer available or allowing designs without a cartridge.  Help!

AI roll my gumpaste to a 4 on the kitchen aid and have no problems cutting with the cameo. I use the cricut deep cut blade. Cardstock. Speed 3 thickness 1

AIn my opinion you would be downgrading getting a cricut. I hate that cartridge business.

The new cricut machine does not need cartridges.  Have not seen one in real life, nor do I know how easy or not it is to convert your own images to it.  It's called a cricut explore.  I'm sure if your went to their website they will tell you all about it.  I do know that you cannot use it unless you are connected to the internet so I lost interest at that point.

I have a cricit cake and I love it and have no problems cutting with it, I would however like and cricut explore now as you can download any image to cut and also use any cartridges you have. With the cricut I roll the gumpaste with the smallest guides on my rolling pin, put it on the greased mat and roll over it a couple of time then let it sit for at least five minutes before cutting. When it has finished cutting wait at least five minutes before trying to remove and it works great. I do know anything about the cameo so I can't comment on that but should imagine you have to roll the gumpaste pretty thin for both machines.
