New Cricut Machines!!!

So I have heard at CHA Cricut is releasing two new machines...

Cricut Mini™
Cricut Mini is a small, lightweight, ultra-portable way to make almost anything you want – out of many different types of materials, including thick and thin paper, fabric, vinyl, magnetic material, craft foil, and lots more. With Cricut Mini, it’s easier than ever to make projects and be more creative!
  • Small, portable, and lightweight for ultra space savings.
  • Works with any computer PC or MAC with a standard wireless or wired Internet connection.
  • Simply plug it in, turn it on, connect to Cricut Craft Room – the online design tool where you can see and design with every Cricut cartridge – and start making projects..
  • Cuts up to 8.5” x 12” paper and other materials. Cut small shapes and fonts from ¼” to larger cuts up to 11½”!


Cricut Expression® 2
Introducing Cricut Expression 2 Personal Electronic Cutter. We've taken everything you love about Cricut Expression and made it even better. All-new machine design, bigger, full-color LCD touch screen, material setting, and a cutting-area light are just the start. Cricut Expression 2 will do everything Cricut Expression can, plus lots of exciting new features like:
  • Still 12” x 24” cutting capability: Enables large-format cutting and creating.
  • Compatible with ALL Cricut cartridges – including Cricut Imagine cartridges. (Cricut Imagine cartridges will just cut images, not print images or patterns.)
  • Larger, faster, full-color LCD touch-screen display with stylus. No keypad overlay required!
  • Mat Preview: See shapes you’re cutting and where they fit on the mat before you cut!
  • Material Setting: Choose a default setting for materials you like to cut (cardstock, regular paper, chipboard, etc) OR customize a material setting just how you want it.
  • Layer View: See all creative features and layers right on the screen, including shift layers. No need to keep referring back to the handbook!
  • Wireless-compatible: Connect to Cricut Craft Room with your Cricut Expression 2 wirelessly.
  • And many more!

I will be sure to tell you more about these machines when I when I see them in person!

The mini is cute. I assume you still need mats w/ it? Unfortunately it seems that Cricut tends to roll out and put their machines on the market before all the "glitches" are worked. Personally if this machine stands the test of time I may be interested in purchasing it in a couple yrs. I can't afford to be paying hundreds of dollars for a machine that's going to break down after one or two used like SO SO many E2 and Imagine owners have had happen to them.

NEW GAGETS / MACHINES ALWAYS ARE AN EYE CATCHER !! I DO TEND TO PUT IT ON THE 'BACK BURNER' UNTILL I HEAR MORE ABOUT IT. USUALLY THE COST IS A BIT CHEAPER IF I WAIT- SOMETIMES WAITING IS HARD TO DO WHEN ALL THE NEW FUN IS GOING ON. BUT I LOVE CRICUT AND ENJOY ALL MY MACHINES!!!

You link the cartridges you own through the machine to the craft room, the E 2 anniversary edition came out months ago, this is the E2, non anniversary edition

My Cricut Craft Room said...

The E2 and E2 anniversary have some different cartridges than each other... so i've heard. But yes color difference is there.
