Hey guys, How many of you saw HSN yesterday?? I totally missed that they had a scrapbooking day, which was a bummer, but I did catch the tail end of it, just in time to see the best part, which was that they had the Cricut mini!! First, I did not know that they were having a Scrapbook day, which featured the new Cricut mini, which again, I didn't even know that there was a Cricut mini! Did any of you know about it?? Anyway, it was my birthday yesterday, so I said to myself, on my birthday, self, we need to have this, so of course I bought it! It is so cute, and I think that it weighs only about 5lbs, I think that is what they said, anyway, it was their Today's special and it came with some stuff, and $25.00 to spend in the Cricut Craft Room. I know what you are thinking, "Karen, the Cricut Craft Room is free, why are they giving you $25.00 to spend there?" this is the best part, you can go into the craft room, and for pennies, you can buy a certain die cut, and you can just pick from different cartridges, and buy 1 thing from a cartridge without having to buy the whole cartridge!! I know it is so incredible!! You can also use your regular cartridges, and use the craftroom the regular way!! The best part, is that it is really small and light, to bring to Crops!!! It still cuts like the regular personal Cricut, it cuts, 8-1/2 x 12!! I know, It also comes with things already installed inside! It also cuts everything, and it even cuts felt, which I know that everyone that I have talked to this is the one that will actually do it! The price last night was $129.00, or 4 payments of like $32.00 !! I don't know how much it is now, but they said that it will not be available on Black Friday, and limited places before Xmas, and if you can find it, i think that it will still be under $200.00. It also comes with Xmas ornaments to make installed also, but i think that is only if you buy it from HSN. I can't wait to get it, and try it out. OH OH OH you can also do all the Kerning, and stuff that you can do on your Gypsy!! I am really excited about the size, it will be really portable.
