Hello everyone...
Okay..I bought my Espression about 2 weeks ago..learned quickly..taught my daughter and her friend..and we have been doing LOTS of vinyl. Coffee mugs, acrylic glasses, making our own coasters....and having a blast. Then I started reading and seeing people talk about the Design Studio...so I found one at a great price on Amazon...

It comes today..we install it...and I'm so excited..up until I realize that I can only cut from the cartridges I have purchased so far...AND THAT IS 3....lolol

So, needless to say. I'm going to continue doing what I can with what I've got...but, do I feel really stupid. I'm disabled and started doing this to make extra money. I have already sold alot of what I've made,,,and am doing my first little local craft on the 5th of March.

So hope after that I can buy some more cartridges...I have learned so much from everyone here. Thanks.

Cartridges on Ebay can the best buy and since you only have 3 you're in a good position. There are a lot of vendors that have free shipping all the time: Memory Miser, Proudparents & Auctionalysis to name a few. I'm sure others will come by and name more! I find that the supply is pretty high and the winning bids have dropped considerably. I've picked up several lately for under $15 brand new, factory sealed and free shipping. If I want a new release I find if I'm patient and watchful I can pick it up for no more than $25. Also some of the scrapbook supply companies hold sales on the "older" titles but some of them are my most favorite! Good luck!

Congrats on purchasing your Expression and WELCOME TO THE BOARD. I remember staying up late the 1st night I got mine BigGrin. If there's a Big Lots in your area, they usually carry some of the older titles priced between $15-$20. Good luck on your upcoming craft fair and make sure to post pictures of your work.
