What two cartridges does this come with?

I just wanted to make sure that they are the Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials cartridges, since the site doesn't specify.

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.

can this machine be used with foam sheets?

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...

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

answer 1
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!

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
