Sorry, Col. I don't have anything that can open a KNK file. If I could see it, I could cut it, but ....

The Cricut Create is small like the original with the functions of the Expression. That's the newest one.

the only thing have seen different about the various cricuts is the size of the machine itself? is this correct because i've only seen one and not for long....the carts fit all machines, does the little key pad cover thingie fit all machines too?? i'm just trying to be "prepared" so i know how to use it when i do get it....thursday....lol (i'm trying to pass the mojo vibe to my hubbyman....lol)

I got my Expression for my birthday, and here's what I did. I emailed DH with a link to the deal on HSN and told him that's what I wanted for my birthday. I also told him that I would shop around for a great deal, and I found one. With my husband, I can't be subtle. I have to come right out and show him what I want. If you're not sure the hints will work, you might want to try that too. I hope you get your Cricut, and Happy Birthday!

The format for the wrappers is a knk not an svg. How do I convert this item to an svg and then use my Scal and Cricut to print them? I really hope someone can help me as I have no idea what I am doing and I would like to make these for my SIL wedding.

Thank you.

Here is something she said that might help you!

"If you have KNK Studio, then you can export as SVG, but Iím guessing thatís not why youíre asking. Judy is now providing these in .PDF format so that they can be opened in Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape for conversion to SVG or DXF. Join the CutterVenting Yahoo group and you can get the files this way."

Oh, very good. I forgot to mention that I ordered it myself. I wasn't going to take any chances. Let us know if he got it for you. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Happy Birthday! I hope you get your Cricut. If he doesnt' get it for you, I think you should get it for yourself. I learned years ago to buy myself a birthday present every year. Enjoy your day!

Help. I have the Everyday Paperdoll cartridge and I can't get it to make a fence that is 3/4 inch tall any longer than may 2 inches. I would like to make a fence that is 8 1/2 inches long and 3/4 inch tall. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Gio,

No expert here, but what size mat are you using 12 x 12 or 12 x 24? If you're using 12 x 12 please try 12 x 24. Good luck!

Thanks for the tip. I was using the 12 x 12 mat. I'll try the 12 x 24 mat and see what happens.

I'm not sure about this, but could you use the "Fit To Length" option (set to 11") and set your size to 3/4"? I haven't tried this feature yet, so it's just an idea. Let us know what works for you, and good luck.

I don't know of any discussions but I would be worried that any adhesive would gunk up the blade and I know that adhesives can dull your scissors so I would use caution in this area. Just my humble opinion....

I use adhesive all the time. I run the paper through my xyron first..put it paper side down so it will stick, if you are making letters make sure you use the flip feature, if there is no right or wrong way, go ahead and cut. I do put my blade depth at 6 and the pressure on high. if you want to be extra safe to make sure it cuts, use the multi cut too if you are doind intricate areas. My blade is fine, but if you want, you can use the alcohol wipes and carefully clean the blade, but I dont and its fine. I think it will wear out before it gets gunked up

Unfortunately she can't set it to 11" and 3/4" both. The size for fit to length is set on the same dial as the regular size. I think she will have to use DSS or piece the fences together.

Default Explain This to Me

I haven't used the Cricut much; so this was my first experience with cutting and piecing parts on to an image. I cut a snowman from the Winter Wonderland cartridge. After I cut the scarf and hat separately, I assumed they would EITHER be a smidge bigger than the snowman base hat and scarf OR be the exact size so you could easily place and glue on top. They were NEITHER. Instead, the hat and scarf are smaller than the base hat and scarf; so you are forced to cut them off or trim them down on the base snowman. Is this true for all the images that have accessory cuts? This just doesn't make sense to me. Wouldn't it make better sense to size them the same or larger than the base?

My blade is fine, but if you want, you can use the alcohol wipes and carefully clean the blade, but I dont and its fine. I think it will wear out before it gets gunked up
So it will mean having the xyron machine! I was afraid you would say that. Don't have one, might soon be in the budget though.

Thanks for the help, will definitely follow these instuctions.

You're welcome, Lolita. (Don't forget to change the mat setting back to 12 x 12, if you use that mat size more often.) Please let me know if it worked!

That is so AWESOME!! I need to go check that bundle out. I have the original bug but really, really want the expression. You are going to love it. The software allows you to weld letters together so they cut out as one piece, you can create your own images with the weld feature (made my own soccer ball), weld images from multiple cartridges. The mat is shown on your screen so you can place the images wherever you want them to cut and turn them, resize, OMG, it just does a lot! Can you tell I like it?! PM if you have any questions. There are several pages in my gallery and on my blog that I have done with the cricut and the design studio.

Check out all the tips here and look for videos too, those help me a lot when I first got my cricut. SCS is a wealth of info with some experts and some talented people who are more than willing to help.
