My DH recently bought me a Cricut Create! I have watched the paid commercial for the Cricut Expressions a million times but $500 to spend on a cutting machine is definitely not in our budget! So, I settled for a more compact version of the Expression called the Cricut Create and boy do I love it! I literally use it everyday! I have made some of the cutest accordion photo albums for my in-laws and even for my DH. He was excited to take it to his office today and put it on his desk.
