Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Explore

Which one would you buy and why? Or would you recommend something else for a 1st timer?

TIA

If you are going electric I would go with the Silhouette since I heard you can make your own shapes. Cricket cartridges are a bit expensive, but if you can afford it, then kudos.

I found a Big Shot machine at a thrift store. Big Shots are not electric but is cool.

Thank you I just ordered the cameo bundle from HSN. Can't wait to get it in and get started making things with it. For those of you that have the cameo, have you made anything Disney themed? Would love to see pictures of what everyone has made.

I have the cameo - I love it! Here's a couple of shirts I did using heat transfer vinyl!

Oh I love your shirts.. I have been watching youtube videos while waiting for my machine. Several videos I watched are on the split letter monograms. These people are using the Regal font from dafont.com. However, I have searched hi and lo on the website and cannot find the regal font. I really love that font too. Is it certain times they have it or is there another website I can get that font?

TIA
