    I have a full sized cutter that takes up lot of room. The Cricut mini would be perfect for the smaller projects that I tend to do more. I like to make minicards so this would be perfect

  34. Mary Lee says

    I would love to have the Cricut Mini. I don’t use my big Cricut near as much as I could cuz I don’t have room to leave it out. I have to make note cards for a baby shower with duckie’s on them and I have to clean up my OTHER desk so I don’t have to clean up my craft table to cut them.

  35. calamityjane says

    I’ve used the regular sized Cricut and loved it but I don’t have room for that. This one is my size! I have always made my embellishments by hand cutting them. I have an album I’m making of my son, Jake, who passed about in 2004 of cancer. He was 30 at the time and not a day goes by that I don’t try to do something positive in his memory! It takes time to hand cut items for his ever-growing album. I would use it to help me finish his album!

  36. Lorianna says

    Who wouldn’t want to win a Cricut mini?
    This really looks like a piece of equipment every crafter can have fun with!
    But would love to make Christmas tags for the nursing home tree, instead of hand cutting them!
    Thanks so much for the chance to win this FAB candy!!

  37. Melissa Mericle says

    I would use a Cricut mini to add fun accents to my Project Life album! And probably for some fun craft projects with the kids, home decor, kids, etc. :)

  39. Diane says

    I would use it to cut different sizes of things. This is where these shine vs the die cuts.

  40. says

    I would use it to cut out lots of hearts and make a really cute valentines window display! Then I’d make a new display for every holiday! Matching cards, stencils, I can think of a lot of things!!!

  41. Carmen Lucero says

    What a neat giveaway!! I would love this smaller version because I can use the 12×12 mat. I sold my little one to my niece, but I like to make bigger projects. Thanks for the chance!!

    I would use the Cricut Mini for making cards for family and friends and I would use it for scrapbooking. I have 3 kids and each gets their own albums. Plus I make scrapbooks for family for big milestones, like 16th birthday, 50th birthday, 50th wedding anniversary. I’m sure the Cricut Mini would be well loved at my house. :) Thanks for the chance to win one. I’ve been dabbling at home decor items too.

  57. TAMMY REDEKER says

    I would use it to help start up a ministry I would like to do….Making cards for not just shut ins, but for people that have not been to church for a while, sick, or just going through something in general to let them know we are thinking about them…To make cards for the Missionaries and also to make cards and sell them and take that money and support a Missionary Family or a family in need in our church!!!

  59. ValindaK says

    I could really use a Cricut Mini to finish my daughter’s Distinguished Young Woman (formerly Junior Miss) scrapbook. There simply aren’t a lot of stickers and other embellishments that “match” the theme of this scrapbook. Imagine how much more beautiful it would be if I could cut embellishments to match the theme!

  60. Donna Collins says

    I would use it for smaller project and just onsie-twosie cuts rather than my big machine that takes up lots of space.

  78. says

    As I like to send out cards for all occasions, I would use the cricut mini to make some nice handmade cards. I love the die-cuts that it would make for accents.

    I have just used my regular old Cricut a few times – just getting used to it; but this looks so much simpler.I make cards and am alwayse looking for die cuts. I’d much rather make them than spending time looking all over I’d also use the letters because you can chang the sizes, in my collages.

  91. julie m says

  93. Bunny says

    My niece has just recently gotten into the arts and craftsy way of life. I knit, she adores paper crafts. I would absolutely love to give this to her for her birthday. She’s 13, so anything she can do that’s wholesome fun is REALLY FANTASTIC in my book.

  109. Holly E says

    My friend lets me use her Cricut, the things you can do with this machine is endless! I would love to have one of my own!

  110. Jane says

    Well, the first thing I’d do was read the manual…. My dad thought me well…. then I’d have a whole day set aside, so I could figure all the cool things I could do with it… Then I’d just cancel the rest of the week and have fun with it! Sounds like a plan!

  111. Nancy D says

    I have never had any kind of cutting machine before. I just can’t justify the cost right now. But I would love to have one.
