*This review assumes that you have at least some basic knowledge of the Cricut line from ProvoCraft. If you do not, I highly recommend that you do two things. 1) Visit the product line website through Provocraft and 2) Visit any number of scrapbooking clubs or just general scrapbooking message boards or websites. You can use your favorite search engine to locate one. The ProvoCraft site will introduce you to the product line, give technical specifications, and show you applications through pictures and graphics. The message boards from scrapbooking fanatics will provide you with real world usage ideas and give you a real feel for how the machine may or may not work for you.*

ProvoCraft introduced the Cricut Expression, meant to be an expansion of their smaller, more mobile Cricut Create product. The idea was to create a product, not meant for transport, that could do what the Cricut does, but on a larger scale. The improvement to the LCD screen is meant to further enhance the product, and now "shows" better than the original screens.

Is bigger better? Well that's only a question you can answer. Is it worth the extra money? (as much as $200 more?) and further, what to do with your existing smaller Cricut?

First, for non-scrapbooking uses, you may find that the larger Cricut Expression has real application in a wide variety of settings - schools, school projects, promotions, etc. The fact remains, being able to cut larger sized letters and artwork has big advantages when you're creating large items for people to view from a distance. But you cannot ignore the added advanatages of a larger machine in the scrapbooking world either.

Expression vs. Slice
There is no comparison - if you can only get 1 machine get the expression - it's worth the extra money...why?
I have the Slice - that was my first machine (I got it 2 weeks ago) only because it had the designs I wanted (tags) and also had some cool accessories and it's my first die cut machine. You have to hold it down to use it, there aren't that many cartridges and if you wait for sales - they are both about the same $. If you need a machine to cut a couple of things here and there and go for the slice. (Read my Slice review for more details).

Expression vs. Personal
The personal cricut only cuts to 5.5" - and it's pretty much like the Slice - around the same price point as well. It does NOT compare with the capabilities of the Expression. Expression cuts in larger sizes, more feature - the LCD screen is more detailed, it's a far more sophisticated machine (think of composition notebook vs. laptop) - also spoke with a cricut user at a store - she said that the Personal wastes a lot of paper

Expression vs. Sizzix - I didn't even really look at the Sizzix, I get they're cheaper, and they have a lot of cartridges and they're cheaper...there's a reason why the machine and cartridges are cheaper - they're VERY BASIC (it's like comparing 3rd grade education to graduate school), reviews on the Sizzix weren't very "WOW" and if I'm going to invest $$ - I rather get something WOW - the functionality and capabilities of Cricut products (even the personal) is far superior than the Sizzix

Expression Features that makes this machine SUPERIOR:
Cuts 1/4" - 23.

I started out with the personal cutter; within a year, I'd moved up to the Cricut Expression. I purchased (all in one combo pack through Walmart) the black cricut expression, the tool kit in the green pouch, design studio, cutting mat (12x12), a spatula, and plantin schoolbook cartridge, as well as an instructional dvd for something around $285, which was the absolute best price for all I got! I got it site to store, so there was no shipping and handling, although it took about a week to get it. To save money on cutting mats, I had read that you could scrub them with a baby wipe and reglue them with a sponge tip brush and one part water to one part Aileene's tack again and again; I only had to scrub it with a baby wipe and it's like a new mat. I have done the vinyl wall art, glass etching, card making, mini albums, scrapbooking, posters for school projects, posters for girlscouts, ATCs, and probably a lot more that I can't even think of right now.You can purchase the cartridges very inexpensively ($20-$30 max) at Big Lots and Ebay, as well as at the Big Box stores during their sales (usually someone has them $35 or so around every other week: Michaels, ACMoore, and Joanns). I have around 25 cartridges right now, and reuse probably around 90% of them, as even the small seasonal ones have a ton of great images. I can't say enough good about the expression; just wish I had not spent the money on the baby bug and gone right ahead and gotten the expression first. This machine is amazing. You can make lots of beautiful gifts and save a lot of money this Christmas: etched glass vases and water glasses, decorative wall decals, stationary monograms, all-occasion card sets with envelopes. The best cartridges: Plantin Schoolbook, George is a close second; Wild Card; Tags, Bags Boxes and More; and Joys of the Season.
