Probably not. I've never known an Expression machine to be preloaded (at least not legally :) The images come on the cartridges. You can purchase a Gypsy machine which you can load with images off of the cartridges, but you wouild still have to acquire the actual cartridges to do that.

My cartridges were not pre-loaded. They were simply packed in the bottom of the box.

Yes, just be sure to use the multi-cut function and a deep cut blade and housing if cutting very thick foam.

I believe so...but you must also purchase the deep housing blade... that is the newest blade from provo craft and it cuts thru all the thick stuff like chipboard and the blade cuts thru material to make your own stamps... This machine comes with a regular housing blade as do all the Cricuts... The deep Housing blade is sold seperately but can be used on any of the Machines and it will cut through thick stuff... I hope this helps you...

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.

Question

How much fabric can you cut with this product?

I want to use this product for quilting only. Will it stand up to only cutting fabric all the time? I understand that you can only cut one thickness at a time but how long will the cutters hold up to cotton fabric?

The best way to cut fabric is to use iron-on interfacing behind it. You will have to replace the blade more often if you only use it to cut fabric but it works great. I cut fabric with mine and made tshirts.

Fabric is gonna kill your cutters faster than paper will; depending on how much you want to cut, be prepared to change blades at least twice as often.

I have never tried it, but I would guess it would...might have to use the Multicut feature...possibly a deep blade housing unit, but I wouldn't think so.

answer 2
I'm sure it can, be sure to set the pressure for a lower level, otherwise it may rip the transparency.

I have used it to cut the fun foam...I use a deep blade housing/blade to do it, and I do the multicut feature on the Expression. It has worked very well.

I would think so, as long as its thinner than the height of the blade. Also would need to play with the cutting pressure
