I am an Accuquilt Go! Cutter fan. A die to cut perfect half-square triangles is a must have if you have a Go! Service from this seller was great as well.
They shipped quick and were exactly as I had ordered. I haven''t used them yet, but I would imagine they will be just like the other Schmetz needles that I''ve used previously in my machine.
This machine is very easy to use. It came with an A plate, two B plates, and an embossing folder. I''m very happy with this purchase and will definitely be buying more Cuttlebug embossing folders and die cuts.

Not having been a Cricuteer till 2011 I missed out on some of the awesome cartridges from previous years. This encompasses the best of a lot of different cartridges1 A really nice way to step into Cricut world!
Exceeded my expectations. Fine cutting detail is extraordinary. Reasonable price. Give yourself time to figure out the cutting mat (i.e., watch some YouTube videos on working with the sticky mat and removing cuts). I''m using a Cricket cutting mat for my cuts (Cricket mats are more reasonably priced, sturdier when you need a replacement or if you need to purchase a longer 24" mat) . The Designer Edition software is worth the price for upgrade if you want to use your own designs (e.g., using Adobe Illustrator to save your designs as SVG files for importing into the Silhouette Designer software). Installation/hookup to PC very easy, especially after you understand no hardware drive necessary to use the Cameo (just read the instructions or use the website support page if you need more info to figure out). I did a YouTube video search to learn about cleaning the cutter blade (I cut a lot of acetate sheets) and suggested settings, speeds and cutting depths if you don''t find defaults for your projects.
Don''t buy this. Buy 2 door stops, place in back of your featherweight (or any sewing maching) and it works the same. Don''t mean to downgrade this product but it really is not a "needed item".

I purchased this memory card for the Slice Elite specifically for a few of the shapes on it. I have used the shapes in various sizes repeatedly and a few others as well. I''ve been very happy with the choices available on this card and know I will use it alot in the future.
