If you REALLY want to make your Cricut do more for you, please buy the software called Sure Cuts a Lot by Craft Edge. You can cut out anything with vector files (svg) that you can find all over the internet. You can also make your own files plus converted most clip art into files. I wouldn't live without out. You can get tons of free files from www.svgcuts.com/blog - check it out. Also, it uses all the fonts on your computer so you can cut out any letter separately or weld together to make one word.

You would need to either buy a cartridge with those pictures on it or buy the Cricut program (cheaper at Walmart than Cricut website) or one called Sure Cuts A Lot where you can do your own. Either program goes on your computer and you plug your Cricut in with a specific cable (comes with the Cricut program). You can use vinyl but haven't experimented with much else yet.

You can go to youtube.com and search cricut expression, to watch some of the infomercials and advertisements they have for it. Also, a lot of people have posted idea's and how-to video's. A great place to get lots of info on the cricut machines. :) Hope this helps.

No, just the 12 x 12. Found out smaller mats for smaller machines are not compatible with this machine (the 6 x 12 mat) and you can buy the 12 x 24 mats, too. Have only found these at Michaels though so far, $15 for two.

just the one 12x12 is included
I really suggest that you get another set at least & switch out - they last longer that way - when they get unstick you can restick with zip glue

Yes it is. My 4 year granddaughter loves to use mine & does a great job! Her favorite cartridge is Paper Dolls & Hello Kitty. She makes things all the time when she is at my house & I even bought her an 8 x 8 scrapbook album & her mom & I print out pictures & she is scrapbooking her own album! She is so proud of that album!

There is very little programing of the machine. You simply put the cartridge you want into the slot in the front right side. Place the rubber button mat on the top. (each cartridge comes with a rubber key mat, it effectively programs the machine for you). simply load the paper on the cutting mat and press the buttons with pictures or letters you want and press go.

The process is extremely easy. Do a few cut outs with her and she will be able to handle it very soon on her own.

The spatula is the "largest" of the various tools designed to remove your cutouts from the mat. The surface is approx. 1.5 in x 1 in. I find it most useful when removing intricate cuts as you can "scoop" them up w/o tearing them up.
Don't know what the most popular cartridges are. I suppose it would depend on what you are planning to do with your Cricut. Being fairly new to the Cricut family, I've purchased 2 additional font cartridges (Lyrical Letters & Pooh font set), 2 Christmas cartridges (too much Santa for my liking, but did have enough "holly," trees and candles to make the "sale price" worth it ... both are being retired), 3 multi-category cartridges and the new HERITAGE cartridge which is loaded with surprise features which are also found in separate cartridges being "retired." I'd suggest getting the HERITAGE cartridge because of all the bonuses found on it. For $89 (full price on website) you can own the equivalent content of 4 cartridges for a savings of $267!

I purchased the spatula to get the CUT paper off the sticky mat. Unless you have long nails (which I don't) it's hard to get the smaller pieces off the mat w/o tearing them because the mat is so sticky.

What is the difference between this machine and the one for $374 online?

Having just recently purchased the Expressions machine for $374, I did so because of all the "accessories" that were included with that price. I went to Cricut website store and priced out the cost of the things included as well as local craft stores and found that they amounted to well over the "difference" in price between local stores and other "online" dealers' offerings and the TV price. Add to that, the fact that some of the DVDs included were not available "for sale" and I have found them to be extremely helpful ... something another responder was looking for as to directions, etc. By the way, I LOVE my CRICUT even though I "hate" crickets!
