Advice on choosing a new machine

Post by scrappingmad »

Hi there

Until recently I've only had time to dip in and out of this fantastic site where I've always received great advice. I now have more time on my hands and would like to consider getting another machine. I still have the original Cricut basic and a Cuttlebug and am still using the original Sure Cuts a Lot version which has worked very well for me.

I have been looking at the Brother Scan and Cut which sounds like a great option and I understand it will also work with the newer version of SCAL.

If anyone has advice on newer machines on the market they found great I'd love to hear - whether it is die cutting or a scan version. I have a birthday coming up and will request monetary contributions so any advice appreciated.

Many thanks

Will do. I'm liking the sound of the Brother scan cut but it is expensive.

Both of those last two machines are names that are new to me. I am in the UK so maybe not available here but I am reading all the info posted to see what's available. Now off on holiday so may not acknowledge further posts quickly.

Thank you
