Trying to decide on Your Story...will I really use it? What I am assuming is the original Your Story is on sale for 30 bucks or so (big bundle) at cricut machine http://www.cricutmachine...nfo.php?products_id=613 seems too good to be true...thoughts?
TIA

I bought it. I don't know how much I'll use it -- I'm hoping I'll use it a lot but it's hard to know. I like that it laminates, too. I mostly bought it because it seems to be a really good deal and I might (I sure hope so) find a good use for it.

I keep wavering...I want the smaller one in terms of space issues but think that down the road I will be disappointed I am unable to do any larger size album then 5x7. I am sure I'll find use for the 12x12 laminator, I do have a xyron but it's the 510 so i isn't wider then like 6 inches I think. What to do, What to do...LOL....Let us know how you like it when you get it!!!

I was all set to order this bundle, then looked at the shipping the cheapest way to ship is $37.75 which is way more than the bundle. Disappointed but I just can't justify that kind of shipping $$$$$.

Yikes!!! Just saw that....okay so now it's no cheaper then many other sites. Glad I waited and now the desire to "have it" is over.

When I ordered it yesterday, my shipping was under $11. I think it depends on where you live and how you have it shipped. I just chose the cheapest shipping method because I don't need it right away.

I am glad it was much more reasonable for you:) I am in VA and the cheapest was 43 or 47$ oh well, nothing lost and a few bucks saved! Enjoy the Yourstory and give us all a review laterLaugh

Ihad a yourstory when they first came out. the binding feature is GREAT the laminating however........is NOT. even with really simple one layer cuts, there is air pockets all around it.

i just recently bought a purple cow laminator...LOVE IT ...no air pockets and nice quality

So I went back to take a look this morning and they had put the regular FedEx shipping back in for $14.97, I know I saw it on there yesterday morning when I looked and it was $13 something. Last night all they offered in shipping was the higher rates. So I went for it and ordered this morning, looks like a fun machine to have on hand, looking forward to playing with it.

Where is a good place for extra glue strips and binders in all sizes?

Thanks everyone, have a wonderful weekend!!

I ordered a Gypsy from them so I included the YourStory for $24.99. I also ordered a cricut cartridge and my total shipping was $16 for all of it, not too bad.

Looks like a great price and includes several book covers so seems like a great deal just for those alone. It looks like they increased the price to $29.99 today for some reason.

I bought mine, I love that it is a binder AND laminator. I got mine for $27 on Ebay, shipping included. It comes with a really cool Cutter, which is work the $27 in itself. I already used the binder! You can make your own materials to make awesome notebooks! I'm making some as party favors for my sister's Quinceañera and will be mkaing her photo album with it, too. I think its an awesome buy! check out ebay! :) Ohmycraft!
LOL Love

I bought the YourStory bundle from PCP for $22 and shipping was $8.60. I also had a few bottles of yudu ink on my order.

I really LOVE the laminating and have yet to use the book binder part. What I don't like about the large machine is... THE SMELL! When it's heating up it has a very strong hot plastic smell. I have the small YourStory Photo but have yet to use it but I've read that it doesn't have that smell.

Yeah, me too, I saw that with the reduced price the other day too...

I bought several, thinking they were nice little gifts, Christmas, a scrappin' party favor
or a RAK or something little and not too expensive..
but I would have waited if I'd of thought they'd of gone cheaper than the $19.95!!!!Crying
