Hi!
For those looking for the Cricut at a good price, Wal Mart has raised their prices back up. Or at least the Wal Mart in my part of Central California. Again I am so happy that I got mine when I did.

I've been using it a little and having a great time. I didn't realize the Happily Ever After princess cartridge did so many other designs too. I cut out the shoe and I want to try cutting out the mice next. Now I have to save up for the other cartridge. Right now I need to check out my paper supplies for cutting all those layers, this is so much fun.

Okay, I did it!!!!! I ordered the DSS from Kim this morning. They are supposed to ship on Friday of next week. I am thinking that it will be a gift to go under the tree from my grandma. She sent us money this year and that still gives me money left over to get each of my children a gift for under the tree. Isn't it funny how I rationalize everything??? I really do need the software, though. I am buying some vinyl from my friend for super cheap and I want to weld some words together to put up on my walls.

Woohoo!!!!!! You will love it.


I bought some Wall Pops from Lowe's the other day. I'm going to make some fun things with those, but it will probably have to have to happen after Christmas.

I got SYI.
Longstory, but a mistake in my favor, I guess. I been back and forth abotu getting it since my B-day, and Kim accidentally put it in instead of Paperdolls, so she said just ship it back and I said what if I was thinking of buying it anyway, she said she'ld sell it to me without shipping cost and no extra paypal fee, so I got it for what she sells a cart for. Makes me happy because, I have it and I have wanted it and Dh said just Buy it instead of sending it back, shh...He doesnt really know what they cost ...

I can't figure out SYI? It must be fun though!?
I just finished cutting my own Word Album (like Bo Bunny's) I was able to make the whole album using the DSS and preview it, to make sure that everything lined up right and then cut it. I did it by opening a new page for every letter and then hitting preview and it will show you the whol album. I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, the letters are similar to the bo bunny albums. There is a square that I welded the letters to. It worked really well.

I have been running into a few more problems...
1. don't press stop on your machine while it is cutting.....hit the cancel button on the computer screen if you need to stop the cut. If you hit the stop button on the machine, the software cut button doesn't work anymore. Then you have to shut down the software and reboot it to be able to cut again.
2. Everyonce in awhile there will be an error message that pops up, it seems to be when I am wanting to move the letters to align them closer. but it will bring up the error message and a big red x box appears on the page and you have lost your work for that page. I think that it does it more when I am on the 200% screen. I use that screen to make sure that everything is really well aligned. Has anybody else run accross that error, and do you know exactly what is causing the error?

I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am with the DSS. I can't believe we have lived without it for this long.

Oh, another thing, Provo Craft just offered us a good deal on cartridges, you may be able to get them cheaper from your favorite retailer! Keep your eyes open. (we don't do online sales....so this is not to benefit my store!) Just a heads up to all you ladies!

I succumbed to the cartridge deal. I tried to resist when I got the e-mail this morning but wasn't strong enough. Paper Dolls and Tags, Bags Boxes and More are on their way to me from Custom Crops. I'll send in the rebate form and go from there. Merry Christmas to me . . . . again! (I must stop buying cartridges, I must stop buying cartridges, I must stop buying cartridges . . . )

SYI=Stretch Your Imagination
I did run into the 1st problem, my paper came unstuck from the mat during the cut. but it was fine onece I shut everything down and restarted it.

I havent had the other problem, but I havent used the 200% screen.
Thansk for keeping us informed.

But.... Did you actually take one of those bundled boxes to the price scanner thingy? They still ring up at $119. I just bought one of those last week. They had all the signage to say it was $184 (the shelf sticker and the sign that sticks out) but it still rang up at $119. I think once the two-cartridge bundles are gone, that's it... and they won't get them back in stock.

They changed it in their system and they no longer ring up for $119. A friend of mine called me from Walmart yesterday at the checkout counter telling me about it. Just last week they rang up for $119 but yesterday they were ringing up for $184. They would not give her the lower price. It was the box with George and Keystone in it.

I know. I feel bad for my friend, though, but she did wait until the last minute to buy one. I still think $184 is a great deal with two carts.

Thanks for the well wishes. Today has been the best day I have had since Saturday. I decided to take a day and ignore everything I should have been doing regarding the situation just so I could attempt to de-stress a little. Now, if only in reality it was that easy.

Here's the link, it's from the Cricut website: http://www.cricut.com/get1free/

Unfortunately, the free cartridge is from a list they provide, but if you already have it you could sell it on ebay or to a friend.

Well, it could be your Darling (or Dear or Devilish) Step Son OR... the new Design Studio software that came out that works in conjunction with the Cricut machine. You don't have to have the software to use the Cricut machine though.

Yes it is the software. There is a link to the free trial a little ways back in the thread it came out last Thursday or Friday, so you'll find the link a Week ago. Goodluck its very addicting, but if you only have the bug and the carts it came with you will be happy with just the Trial version....For Now..

Just clicking on any of the letters until it becomes dashed opens the box.

SO Gale you got it working or did you go buy it?

I have new arrival and haven't used it for one baby thing yet. I have used the animals on there quite a bit on my pages.

Smile Cricut Chatter

I had to use my cricut to cut out the circles of transparencies for making 100 ornaments for 1st graders to make the glass ornaments for their parents for Christmas presents. Sorry if the pic is not very good....had a hard time taking it.

I am just a little curious how long is the longest you have kept chirping without stopping? I was just wondering if the bug would get to overheated. A friend said hers started smoking one day & told me I should not use it very long at a time.
Also do you go through a lot of mats? Boy mine sure don't seem to last a long time & I do change which side of it I put in so I am not just using it one way.
I like the New Arrival Cart. also although I have not bought that one...YET!

Very cute. did you put the transparency inside an ornament or does it just look like a full ornament.
I had not though about cutting out the circle/shapes until after I had gone out & bought a circle cutter then got to thinking the bug will do it. Took the circle cutter back

Hey Gals, I posted last night but can't find it!! I have been a member for a while but haven't posted much. Hope someone can help. I have a cuddlebug, do not know how to use it and I want a cricut, hubby wants to get me one for Christmas. Which one to get? I am a SU hobbyiest and make cards and scrapbook. What is difference and for what I do which is best? And if I am too dumb to work the cuddlebug can I work a cricut? I am on disability due to a bladder disease called Interstitial Cystitis, can't get out much so the PC is mostly my way of getting info. I hope you all can help me. Cause I am sooooo frustrated!
Thanks,
Kimber
ps if anyone can find my post from late last night where folks answered please tell me how to get there!
Thanks a mil.

Kimber, if you go to the top of the tool and product talk forum there is a cricut FAQ thread. One of the gals copied our responses to the question about the differences between the 2 bugs in that thread. I hope that helps. I have both and if you have the money then I say go for the expression. I bought the original cricut thinking I didn't need the big one and less than 6 months later I owned the expression. I haven't used my original cricut since.

Tell your friend that if her Cricut is smoking then something is definitely wrong with it! She needs to call PC or take it back where she got it. Mine has never overheated and I have used mine hundreds of times! I use it practically every day and just last week I had to change the paper on my mat over 60 times within two hours. It worked great!
