Well now we know why the Expression is so cheap lately.
The new Expression 2 features a full color touch screen, a few new options and most all the abilities of the old Expression. AND it uses all the cartridges including the Imagine cartridges which is a nice feature. It's available for only a short time (according to the video) but PC gives us no information as to price or where to get it.
There's a video over on the Cricut Facebook page. Click HERE to go watch it now. (You'll have to LIKE the fan page if you've not already done that.)
