Oh if you are card maker ... yes yes yes! I love this sweet lil Cricut Joy and it is perfect for card makers and embellishment creators too! The Joy is great for smaller cuts...super quick and easy to take with you! The Joy can write but not score.
Here are a few of the Pros:
Uses Design Space software so lots of images and of course my Simple SVGs
Ready to Stamp Simple SVGs let us create with our favorite Stampin' Up! papers, inks and stamps
Small size so you can have it set up on your desk ready to go
Loads and cuts quickly
Cut and Draw with this Joy
Can cut many vinyl projects
Perfect for smaller items and will not waste a full sheet of paper
Joy has special mat that allows you to cut the front of a folded card . (I love these non-Cricut brand mats and they are a great price too!)
Joy has special Smart Vinyl created to cut without a mat!
Mat is smaller 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and a longer 4 1/2 x 12"
Joy can not score
Joy can not cut heavier materials (but is perfect for paper crafters and vinyls)
I love this Cricut and think you will too. Here is a free Ready To Simple SVG for Cricut Joy to try it out.
