Die cutting machine

I have been wanting a cutting machine for a while now. I really don't have an interest in using it for vinyl, but I really want a machine to cut stickers out of sticker paper and for cutting paper.
Pro and Cons of the machine you use?
Cricut Joy? I want to cut my own designs and not be limited to Design Space and I don't want to have to pay for a subscription.
Silhouette or Cricut or Other. I know Brother makes a paper cutter.
What do you all think?

I want want want a Brother Scan-N-Cut... so bad... I've been saving for a while now but stupid stuff like CAR REPAIRS keeps jumping in front of it! LoL smiley

I have a Silhouette, Cricut Maker, Brother Scan and Cut. I never could figure out the Silhouette.

I was using Scan N Cut full time (you don't need computer) until I got the Cricut Maker now it is my go to-- I love the print and cut feature. If you go to any FB forums Cricut Maker is always the favorite for ease of use. I did a video on making dex cards with Cricut Maker at https://youtu.be/xtpHHi38dYg

The Brother Scan N Cut is good if what you are cutting is not to complex. It could not cut out my dex cards.

I ordered the Cricut Joy (deoes not have print and cut feature) but it hasn't arrived.

@Robin I can't wait to hear your review of the Joy.

@Robin Thanks for your opinions on all of these. It may make me reinvestigate my Wishlist while saving up again. LoL

I've got the Cricut Maker. I'm hoping to use the print cut feature soon. I've done a lot of vinyl projects and a few engraving. Before I had the Maker I owned the Expression for 10 years. I really watched a lot of youtube videos about the features on each of those machines you're looking at. It helped me decide.

I did it! I bought an Explore Air 2. I have been watching a ton of videos to get to know it before it gets delivered. I got the Everything Bundle so I can craft my little heart out!

Seems like a good time for a new tool!

I'm a learning how to use it. Not a difficult as I expected. I suppose if I was not experienced with software that I would have the most difficulty with Design Space, but so far so good! I have watched a ton of tutorials on YT already.

I have the cricut air and I picked up the cricut maker yesterday.
