This is a great deal, BUT I already have the Imagine (which is my primary cutting machine), a 5 year old E that is in her tote for retreats, a new baby bug in it's case for crops AND a pretty red cricut cake, that I can make work for me, on refrigerator, do I really need this one too?

If this machine won't work with my Gypsy, then I don't want it as I won't ever use CCR.

Opinions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Need some intervention, HELP!!!

The Gypsy works with the Mini and the Mini is a lot smaller and lighter than the E!

I would say no. You have the baby bug and it will work just as well.

I bought mine a while back and love it! It cuts better than my E and I find I have been using it when I am cutting smaller things and don't need the big mat.

If you have a gypsy this machine works great with it. However, if your gypsy breaks you'll be forced to use CCR because it is not a stand alone machine.

As far as how it cuts, I think it rivals some of the really expensive other machine brands for the little intricate cuts.

Do you need it? No you don't.

I did my own intervention - I stopped watching HSN - LOL

I ended up getting the envelope punch and the Purple Cow anywhere stapler/staples. I am going to convention next month in Portland and need to save a little money.BigGrin (at the rate I am going, it will be very little).

I was debating on getting a mini (sale price $69.99 / free shipping ) from teameag10 on ebay, OR the CTMH Artiste cartridge. I bought the cartridge.

For those of you in Tampa - the HSN outlet has them for 70% - the one on Hillsborough had 3 and 4 E2's also 70% off.
