Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Expression 2?

Hello guys!

If you have read my previous posts, I am very decided on the Cricut. But now, my heart is again torn with the Expression 2 and the Silhouette Cameo.

It will be very much appreciated if you could help me decide on what to get?

Please share your thoughts and experiences on using both machines.

I love the fact that the Cameo does need cartridges to work, that is very convenient, though it is a little expensive than the Cricut Expression 2. But the Cricut images are so adorable and very cute, perfect for projects for kids. I just want to know, are there websites where I can find pretty images as well? Like Disney characters and wedding images?

Since I haven't owned any of the machines, how about it's ease of use? The noise level? Any opinions on any aspects of the machines are highly appreciated.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I've owned a Cricut Expression for several years, but follow blogs using both the Cricut and Silhouette. I think if you have design talent and are very creative, the Silhouette offers the best option. But, if you need help with creativity, the cartridges for the Cricut make it so easy for you to create many cute and fun things.

    1. Hello Coelle! Thanks for the tip! I have finally made a decision on what to get. Since I don't want my cuts to be limited to the ones in the cartridges, I got the Silhouette Cameo. And I am so excited to have it. :)
