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.

I think and dont quote me that the school plantin cart that comes withthe expression has an oval.

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.

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.

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.

Its just a green electronics circut card like inside a computer. You can see it where you plug in just a chip soildered(sp?) on it holds the info. It's whats inside the SD card, I think they made the cards bigger so people wouldn't lose them. I miss place mine every where

Oh, I see. That's a good idea to make them bigger.

It's totally not your fault which online places shipped faster, or that you didn't know about the cart sooner. It's just hard to wait for anyone, I think. I'll probably have to wait until tax time to get it myself, but luckily I have a friend who shares, lol.

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.
You catch on fast and now you are a big enabler just like the rest of us! LOL!

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.

I took advantage of that screw up at HL too. I got 6 cartridges that week. I will have 32 cartridges after my paper dolls arrives on Wednesday and my creative express order on Friday. I agree they must multiply on their own. Too bad they don't do that for free!

You can do that with the center point function. I haven't tried that function yet.

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.
Great pages and countdown calendar. I have been working on one since Saturday and I am almost finished. Hopefully tonight.

Hi! I sent Kim an email preordering the Software but she hasn't emailed me back. Does anyone know how long her turn around time usually is?
Thank you.

I have been waiting for months, but I waited until Sunday to place my preorder. I couldn't pay for something and then wait months for it to arrive. I am not that patient. I waited so long to order because I was trying to decide who to order it from. I was going to order from Kim, but then when I saw that custom crops had shipped some of their design studio software on Friday I decided to go with them because Kim was saying the 17th for the software. I played the game and luckily I chose the right place to order from. I hope that Kim got hers in too so that everyone that ordered from her will get theirs soon. Anytime companies have things for preorder it is hard for them to get the product to everyone at the same time. We demos play that game with Stampin' Up every time there is a new catalog. A few lucky people get their catalog a day or two earlier than the majority. It is really frustrating but it happens. Don't feel bad. It's not your fault.

I preordered withthe software from Kim this last week, But I beged her to save me shipping and ship it with the software so she is so I wont get mine until after the 17th...Sheesh...She has a thing to day saying she ordered the software according to preorders so no refunds...Wonder why she didnt say that before. I dont think she thought they would both come out on time and they did. I can wait, havent been doing much crafting any ways... here's hoping her software comes in sooner.
