cricut owners - i am thinking about getting a MAKER. could you help w some project ideas?

Submitted to Community Café

i am just wondering about the maker, since i am looking into cutting wood and harder stuff than vinyl, but i would be happy about all kind of project ideas, since i am unsure if this is a good investment - also in regards to variety. can it also cut all that paper shadow box stuff? well i read and watched a lot, but i still feel tooooooooo uninformed to run out and get it...maybe some of you can help? thank you!
