NEW Cricut Mini Machine

There’s a new Cricut in town!  The Cricut Mini!  I just saw it at Summer CHA 2011.  It’s got a sleek new design.  Check it out:

The best new function of this machine, in my opinion, is its ability to cut 8.5″ x 12″ instead of the previous 6″ x 12″ of the other baby bugs (Cricut Personal or Create).  It’s made to work with the free Cricut Craft room online software.  Will it work without the Cricut Craft room?  I can’t quite figure that out and I forgot to ask.  If I get by there again tomorrow, I’ll make that a priority.

The Cricut Craft room is currently still in beta testing, but when the Cricut Mini machine is available (coming soon), I was told that the Cricut Craft room software will be ready for everyone as well.  Yay!  I’ve tried the Cricut Craft room software for the past few months and I think it’s a nice program.  It basically replaces the Design Studio software and is online and FREE which is super nice.

This machine will retail for $119 (or $129…I can’t remember which.)  Still I thought that was a nice low price.  It’s a perfect pairing, I think.  A low priced machine AND the free online software.  Pretty nice. 😉
