Welcome Pam! Congrats on your new bug. Did you get the original cricut or the expression? Your DH will just have to get over it! Watch out this thread is gonna cost you a lot of money. You have been warned. Just ask some of the other gals that have only been here a week or so. Have a great trip to Hawaii and I'm sure your bug will wait patiently for you while you are gone.

Can't wait to start creating!

Oh, BTW, Robyn, those pages are fabulous! That cake...oh my! I am so glad I have that cart!

And after reading all these posts I need to leave telling myself no, no! You do NOT need a BIA! Nope...No...No..*yes, I do* in a little voice slinking away...

There are always sales like this going on. Quite frequently Michael's has the carts at $50. They will go down to $45 and even $35 at times. So hold off until the next big sale. The lady at Michael's said that, at her store, the carts go on sale for $35 twice a year. Yea!

You are right about asking the right person. Glad I had a chance to go back!

Forgive my ignorance. What is a BIA? I really shouldn't ask because then I am going to have to go out and buy one.

Welcome to all the new cricut owners! Get ready for a lot of fun. I second hart2heart's sentiment. This thread has a wonderful bunch of enablers. You will find more ideas and needs for carts than you ever thought. In case you didn't see it, creativexpress.com is having a huge sale. If you buy 4 or more cartdriges, they are $27 a piece. With shipping, they come to about $29 a piece.

BIA = Bind It All

I don't own one either. Yep, that's right, another thing Robyn doesn't own. Most of my money has been going into Cricut stuff only. I don't mind, though, I don't think I need a BIA. Now HUSH about it or I will want one!

Not sure if this is the correct place to post - I posted on the FAQ thread as well - I am on the fence with the expression, but I have a cartridge question. Is there a cartridge that makes an oval shape besides the George cartridge? And I am looking for an oval shape without a hole for a tag. Also - can you place a piece a precut card size piece of cardstock on the mat and cut a circle, square, oval, etc. in the front of the card in a precise place? I guess what I am asking is will I be able to do that like I do with a hand punch in the lower right corner (For instance) of a card? Make sense??

Glad I could help. There's a website, I think it's called zuttersisters.com that has all kinds of info and little movie clips about how to use the BIA, too. Sounds like you have had a lot to celebrate lately!

ANd to say I think its okay to have it wait in the box while you are on vacation... I wish I had something to wait in a box why I went to Hawaii. Well maybe some day. You'll have some neat stuff to scrapbook when you get back I'm sure. So pretend its research!
LOL!!!!!!! (Sorry, I couldn't help it! lol)

See, I told you, LOL!!! You have time to get your stuff organized and ready to go once you're able to get that box opened, though.

Oh sorry, a BIA is a bind-it-all. I've been using mine a lot to make mini scrapbooks, post-it note holders, and chipboard calendars. There's a website called zuttersisters.com that's full of info on the bia.

Would you believe that I just WON a Bind It All? I actually forgot that I even entered a contest. I had a sweet email message waiting for me on Friday afternoon. Granted, I already own one, but it is so cool to have WON something!! I was thinking my mom might like one. I don't know what she would bind, but I'm sure she'd think of something.

Oh wow! I don't think I've come across that sale yet. Although that one week when Hobby Lobby didn't exclude the Cricut stuff, that brought the price down to $35 - since theirs are $59.99 regularly. I bought quite a few that week. LOL Man, I can't believe that after the five cartridges that I've ordered arrive, I'll have 24. TWENTY FOUR! Sheeesh, I think they multiply on their own.

Curiosity is killing me as to what the inside of a cartridge looks like. I mean, what's in there to store the data? Is an SD card or something? I don't want to open one to find out since I typically can't get things back together again.

  • Alphalicious has a plain and scalloped oval. I think if you use the shadow or blackout feature, you won't get a hole.
  • Fabulous Finds has a plain oval - use the Inserts feature.
  • George has a plain oval.
  • Jasmine has a plain oval.
  • Tags, Bags, Boxes and More has a plain oval if you use the shadow or blackout feature. No holes or slots cut with those features.
Some of the cartridges have the card feature to cut a shape out of the center of a card. With a little trial and error, you should be able to move the blade to where you want your shape cut out. The trial part would be to figure out just where on the shape does the blade start cutting so that you start in the right place on your card. So if it starts at the absolute bottom center of the oval, you could make a little pencil mark on your card where you want the cutting to start and then load the card and then move the blade to that pencil mark and cut the shape. The obvious error part is that you had it in the wrong spot. I think I would tend to lean towards the error part myself quite a bit as I have a bad memory anyhow. I have most of the one-page sheets printed out in a binder with each sheet in a page protector so I suppose I could write myself a sticky note on the starting points for the various shapes.

Here's the link to the one-page shape reference for each of the cartridges:
http://www.cricut.com/information/ca...e_library.aspx (Click on View in the Samples column next to the specific cartridge.) The new ones aren't all there yet though.

I hope this week!! I also hope that I am "in" on the first shipping. LOL I just pre-ordered a couple of weeks ago. I'm not in any rush other than I just want it! LOL I think this will be the cartridge that my in-laws give me for Christmas. I have four other cartridges coming from Creative Express, but the PD cartridge "looks" like it would be more fun than the other ones I ordered. (At least in their eyes!) LOL

Robyn can answer for sure, but I believe with the Expressions (NOT THE ORIGINAL) that you can place your blade to the center of where you want the shape cut out. Then you tell it how big you want the shape and hit cut. On the demonstration video (on cricut.com) she centered her blade on a picture of her and her spouse, then cut a heart around them.

Yes, you are correct. You can use the "center point" feature on the ebug. I haven't tried to cut out the front of a card yet but you have the capability.

I got to Cricut yesterday. I finished a few more of those layouts in the storage box. I also made a Christmas Countdown.

The first one is a few pictures from our wedding reception. We met at the Billiard Hall the reception was at. We had a small civil service with some family, so this was perfect for us. Maybe one day when we win the lottery, we will have that huge wedding I always dreamed of.
The second is of my DD a few years back at the army summer picnic.
The last is my Christmas Countdown. It was much easier to Cricut those numbers than the last one that I stamped.

I spelled the address wrong. it's *zutterzisters* instead of zuttersisters.

Here's the link: http://www.zutterzisters.com/

Sorry about that!

Awesome Consuelo! Did you purchase any of the carts from www.creativexpress.com when they were 4 for $27 each?? That was the best deal I have ever seen.

I bought quite a few that week. LOL Man, I can't believe that after the five cartridges that I've ordered arrive, I'll have 24. TWENTY FOUR! Sheeesh, I think they multiply on their own.

Curiosity is killing me as to what the inside of a cartridge looks like. I mean, what's in there to store the data? Is an SD card or something? I don't want to open one to find out since I typically can't get things back together again.

Kimberly
Ok, I hadn't thought about what the inside of the carts look like, now I'm going to wonder too, LOL! I KNOW I'd screw it up if I tried too look though, so no experimenting from me, lol!

Thank you.
I used the Keystone font for all the letters and numbers. The star is from the George cart.
The squares are 1.5" (cut with my paper cutter). The letters and numbers were all cut at 1" (Cricut made that go Soooooo much faster). The cookie sheet is from the dollar store. It only took 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper (Holiday Harmony) and 2 sheets of Naturals White cardstock. A couple strips of ribbon and two 3/4" x 8.5" strips of Always Artichoke. I held the main background with sticky strip. The squares are held on by snail and the numbers and letters I ran through my Xyron 150. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch the top holes for the ribbon to hang it.
I haven't covered the chipboard shape to mark the number yet. I don't know what color I want it. It has magnets on the back.
