I received lots of emails saying they want a cricut but cant afford one. yes, it is a little bit too much for some. even for me! but what i'd like to say here is, the machine is good if you are really a serious crafter, who's really into paper crafting and scrapbooking. who doesnt mind spending most of your money on crafty stuff and forget about those summer dresses and sandals. bear in mind that you need to have lots of cardstock papers once you have the machine, and not to mention change the mat and blades too. so, study what's in the market. there are cheaper cutting machines for starters before you commit.
This card for example, requires no cricut. its just combining the colours and add your own creativity and softness towards it, you can still come out with good results without the expensive machine!

Oh yes, i forgot, another alternative for cricut is punches. paper punches. you can get them big, small, tiny, and mega ones! now, that's something you should really consider and worth every cent!
This can be quite an expensive hobby. but it's basically making do with what you have and can afford to at the moment. that's how it all starts. challenge yourself with your creativity and you'll be amazed!
Hope this helps.
