I've had my cricut for a while, but haven't used it much. I just got MTC and want to start actually making stuff! I have what might be the dumbest question ever and honestly, I'm sort of embarrassed to post it. I have an image for MTC with 3 layers that will be 3 different colors - how do I choose to cut just one of the layers?

To selectively cut layers, turn off the "eye" on the layers that you don't want cut (I usually verify this with the preview to see exactly what is going to cut).

You might want to join in the fun on the as well - you'll probably get faster answers there. I hope you like MTC as much as I do.

I am so excited for a couple of reasons.

My dh bought me the Teal expression for Christmas. I have been tinkering around with it lately but have wanted to do more. I saw this ladies blog and she made something that looks like those expensive pages. So this leads me to the the second reason why I'm so excited. I was at Michaels and found the Jukebox on clearance for 9.99. (I was there two days ago and it was 39.99) go figure.

Anyway, I am going to do some housework and then I'm playing...

This has probably been answered somewhere on here but there are over 100 pages to read thru and I don't have the time right now.

I know that I have seen things that people have done with the Cricut that they have taken the images off of the internet and they say that they have special software to do that. What do I need? I am needing to make a ton of things for VBS at church and there is no way that I can find all the stuff on cartridges, there are none at the local Michaels that will work for Chinese things. Any help here would be appreciated. I thought it was the Design Studio that I need, but the box says that it requires that you still need the cartridges for that to work.

Thanks

I have a program called Sure Cuts a Lot that I purchased online. The site is called ScrappingTable.com. They are having a special right now for Mothers Day. She also has a lot of free SVG files that you can download. (That is the format for cutting with SCAL.) here is the link to the site:

Anyone have this problem? When I turn on my Cricut Expression everything lights up. I put it a cartridge and it recognizes it. I load the paper and it recognizes that it is 12 x 12. I press a figure, choose the size for example 2 1/2" and when I press cut it says that the image is too large for the paper. I have done all of the reset suggestions that I have found here and it still says the same thing. It is now out of warranty. Any suggestions or does anyone know a person or shop that fixes Cricuts?
Thanks,
Cheryl

Have you gone to cricut.com? They have a message board with everything you need to know about the Cricut. Someone there may be able to help you.

Default Rotating

Hi, everyone!

I just got a Cricut (the small one) for my birthday. I also got the Design Studio and downloaded some great .cut files. I found one that is on a 12x12 mat but looks like it would fit on the 12x6 mat. Is there anyway to rotate the image so it would fit on the 12x6 mat? I can move individual pieces but I don't think I can get them lined up the same way. Any help??

Thanks!!

mzinkspot.....The image you are trying to cut may be 2.5 in the one direction but may be too large for the mat in the other direction. You don't say which image you are trying to cut so there is no way to say for sure. I doubt it's a default in your machine.

Try setting your size dial lower to see if it will fit on the mat.

There is no "repair shop" for the Provo products.

I hope I'm in the right area... I recently bought the Silhouette and love it so far. But I want to make a banner that is longer than my cutting mat (I would like to make it about 2' long). How do I do this? I only see one size cutting mat.
Help!!!

You can make a cutting mat yourself. Not sure how you'd make one that long-the only thing I can think of is cutting down a 12 x 24 cricut mat. Some people use that quilting plastic template material but I don't know if they make it that big-it might be worth checking out.

Default I need some help!

I recently received a Cricut for Christmas (personal size) and was wondering if I can use with it all of the available cartridges. I was recently at JoAnn's and saw some Cricut cartridges that added color and cut? Cricut Imagination maybe? I would appreciate any advice!

Hi. In answer to your question, I am afraid that you can only use the regular cartridges with you machine. The ones that print and cut are only good on the Imagine and the Cricut Expression 2. However, even with the expression 2, the Imagine carts can only be used to cut as the Expression 2 does not print. Hope this answers your question...

Does anyone know if there is a list or website that lists which Cricut cartridge(s) images "match" die cut images sold by Stampin Up / Sizzix? This would help a ton with prepping for classes. Thanks!

There is no program that lets you use svg files with the cricut. Provo Craft put a stop to that. Sorry.

I have the Camp Out cartridge with no tri-fold. Does anyone have this cartridge and willing to scan their tri-fold for me? I tried printing out the one on Cricut.com but it was so small I would need a magnifying glass to look at it. I would pay for a copy. TIA.

I don't have the cartridge. I always wanted it but never got around to buying it. I did try to get the Camp Out TriFold bigger for you. Here it is- http://www.cricut.com/res/handbooks/CampoutTrifold.jpg

I hope this works. If you hover over the picture you will see your mouse turns into a magnifying glass with either a - or + sign. If you click it will make the picture bigger or smaller for you. I don't know if that helps any.

I tried this site but it wouldn't print at the larger size. I printed yours and it's a little bigger but not as big as I would like. Thanks for all your help, I'll try to live with this one.
