Just received my E2

Hi Paper Lovers...

I just wanted to share with you that I already received my NEW EXPRESSION 2 from FedEx tonight. When I got home it was sitting on my front door step and I was so excited. I opened the box and read all the manuals, plugged everything in and have cut 2 Easter Chicks from Create A Critter Cart at 4". I have to tell you though Im not in love with this machine. For the one's of you out there that LOVE your Gypsy you'll LOVE this machine...That is what its like, the Gypsy and I do not like the Gypsy all that much. I have all kinds of trouble with the sizing etc...this new E2 has all the features the Gypsy has. Its taken me 2 hours from opening the box to cutting 2 little chicks. Im thinking of returning this but I am going to use it for a week and see how I feel about it. Im going to give it a shot.

Thanks for listening to me ramble on..Im kinda bummed. The original Expressions is very easy to use, anyone can use that but this new one its going to take some time to get used to all the clicks you have to make to get the end results...there are so many new steps..not as fast as the old one.

Im looking forward to seeing what others say on their blogs about it. Im interested to see a YT video on it too.

Have a great evening and a sunny tomorrow :)

Hope it gets easier for you! I didn't jump on that bandwagon. (I guess you'd actually have to do more than just plug your cricut in and use it once or twice a year to really be into it! LOL!)

gina, I'm so sorry that you're unhappy with your new e2! I was just at a crop on Saturday, there was a cricut demo lady there and she brought her new e2, she was having trouble with hers. she said it wasn't syncing correctly and causing cutting problems. she said that they were suppose to be getting an update in about 2 weeks. so you may want to give it some time for PC to work out the bugs!
liz :o)
