Happy New Year everyone!! I've been out of the loop for a little over a year. I decided to go back to school to become a Travel and Tourism Specialist (Travelling is my other passion besides Scrapping)and after graduation started with a new agency and really haven't had too much time to scrap. Well....I'm back! "Thank God". I have the Imagine. I have loved it, since I got it. Yes...bumps along the way with Craft Room etc...but stuff like that never really bothered me. I noticed that there aren't any new cartridges for the Imagine. Does anyone know if they are planning on updating the cart library for the Imagine? I was told the Expression 2 can use the Imagine carts, but does the Expression 2 print? If so...does that mean the Expression 2 carts work on the Imagine? I'm so confused. Can someone please help? I would really really really appreciate it. Like I said...I LOVE my Imagine and would love to continue being able to get carts and ink for it. Looking forward to your help.
Have a nice weekend!

Hi, welcome back to the scrap world. No, the expression 2 dose NOT print. You can only cut the out shapes – no details. But we can use all carts on imagine. The rumor is that provoraft has done away with the imagine and no longer making it (but will continue to support it). Again, I say rumor – we have heard from reliable sources, but no official announcement that I have seen. I think the latest cart for the imagine was word of mouth. They have not made any new carts in a while which would be consistent with it going the way of the dinosaur. I think someone said they found another ink refill cart that worked – not sure what that is thought. And, imagine still doesn’t play really well in the craft room – it is a better “stand alone” machine. Sorry for the downer-news, but happy scrappin’!

Congrats are going back to school and graduating! :) That sounds like a fun job to have. It is discontinued per the link that was posted. They've yet to answer some questions about it still or are flat out ignoring them. You can buy ink. That link tells you which HP cartridges will look. Some have done the refill thing with success. New cartridges is unknown. They put some up on CCR, but you can't buy them the last I looked the other day. However, they have been slowly going back and making images from regular cartridges such as Create a Critter layered already with the colors. You have to repurchase it though.

E2 - doesn't print. You can use the Imagine cartridges just to cut the image so you will always end up with the outline only and have to layer. It works for some things such as the Fonts and some stuff on Blast Off, but not well for others in my humble opinion.

The plus to the above - if you don't own all the cartridges, they're selling really cheap everywhere. Clearanced at Michaels and Joanne's.. ebay, cricutmachine.com, and at times cricut.com I believe. Or if you have Rewards points, bunch there too.
