 UPDATE:  If you are looking to buy a copy of Sure Cuts A Lot you can get Version 3 at the links in the review below!  Version 3 is not compatible with Cricut.  You can no longer buy it for the Cricut.  I would highly recommned going to the links below and checking out the Sure Cuts A Lot package deals with machines.  They have one at $279 and one at $429 depending on what machine you want.  I have not tried either of these machines but am looking into doing a review on them. If you don't already own a Cricut I would recommend going with another machine (partially because I am so upset they won't let their customers use Sure Cuts A Lot) and mainly because you will save a ton using sure cuts a lot instead of buying cartridges!

Bottom Line is......  Sounds like Make the Cut has more customer support and helps you through issues more.  They support most machines but not Cricut Machines.  Therefore, if you have a Cricut I recommend Sure Cuts A Lot (I've hear it works just as well as Fairy Cut & is MUCH MUCH cheaper).  If you own another machine I would probably recommend Make the Cut but really if you would rather have Sure Cuts A Lot I think it is just as good but they just don't have the seminars to walk you through everything!

See all the coupon codes, etc. below!

You all probably know from my Sure Cuts A Lot Review that I am a huge fan!  I love especially that I found this product when I very first bought my Cricut Machine so I never needed to waste a fortune on Cricut Cartridges.  I love how easy it is to use and all of the fonts I can use just from downloading the software and having these fonts on my computer...  I just absolutely love this product and recommend it to EVERYONE!  You can buy Sure Cuts A Lot here and I'm not positive if this code works but it looks like it will (it issues the 10% off in the cart but I didn't complete check out since I already own the product) 10% off Code is 9388463.

However, I have recently heard of another software Make The Cut.  I know a lot of people are asking, Should I buy Sure Cuts A Lot or Make the Cut?  Which has more features?  Which is easier to use?  Which one is more worth my money?

Well I contacted Make the Cut and although they are unable to let me do a product review they do have a trial.  So sometime soon I will be doing the trial of it and letting you all know what I think and which I like better.

In the mean time if anyone has used either and wants to comment with their thoughts that would be great!

If anyone wants to purchase either one please remember to use the coupon codes below!!!!
Prices are as follows (and coupon codes listed below also).

Make The Cut is regularly $79.95 for the download and $90.94 for the download and CD.
Use Make The Cut 2011 Coupon Code - MTC327 and it will knock the price down to $58.36 for the download or $69.35 for the download with CD.

Sure Cuts A Lot is regularly $75.00 for the download and $90.00 with the download and CD but on sale right now for $59.95 for the download and $74.95 for the download and CD.
Use Sure Cuts A Lot 2011 coupon code(aka Craft Edge 2011 Coupon Code) 9388463 for 10% off and they will be $53.96 for the download or $67.46 for the download and CD.

So Sure Cuts A Lot ends up being about $5 cheaper but is Make the Cut worth the extra $5......  hopefully I will be able to let you all know soon & anyone who already has an opinion on this please share!!!! 

Disclosure:  All opinions in this post are my honest opinions.  I have previously been sent a copy of Sure Cuts A Lot 2 to review, but the opinions on this software all still MY opinions.  If you buy products from my site I may receive a small commission for you doing so and very much appreciate you doing so.  Thank you all!  If you like my reviews please feel free to rate my site on AND/OR comment on the posts you like.  I love all your comments and all of your input is VERY appreciated!

I am interested in acquiring a legal copy of SCAL v.2 for the MAC 10.7 or Win 7 and paying a reasonable price not the eBay rip off prices. Many thanks for help with this request.

I am not sure where to get them, unless the person in the comment above your still has some. I recommend buying a different machine so you can use Sure Cuts A Lot and get your full moneys worth out of your die cutting machine. You can read my most recent post on this here.

Do not buy Doesn't answer emails and software stops working.

I have recently heard of another cutting software Easy Cut Studio from . It is easier to use and more worth my money.
