Good afternoon everyone. I am thinking about getting a Cricut, probably just the little one, but would love the big one. Does anyone know of anyplace that has a really good deal on these?

Cricut.com is where I went. Click on product, then cartridges, then the individual cartridge you are interested in. There's a box in the top right that says "cartridge sample" and it will show you what it looks like. I printed out sheets for every cartridge I have and put them in my sample duotang (has samples of all stamps, inks, pens, markers, embossing folders, punches, etc) so I can easily pick out what I'm looking for. HTH.

Have fun!

Humm. I tried Cricut.com and customcrop has more detailed information but i thought there was a place that had a directory basicly. Maybe in a spreadsheet form- with the contents shown and the name of the cartridge. I can't believe cricut has made 100 cartridges- oy!

You are right. I tried the fit to length and it doesn't work. I need to piece the fence together. Looks like DDS is on my list to buy list. I think the software would really take the Cricut expression to the next step and be well worth the insvestment. Thanks for all your help ladies.

Did you find what your looking for? I know Cricut has a picture of all their carts. I've gone there many times.

That educators deal works out to about $40.00 per cart. With a free cric included that might be a pretty good deal!

mommarocks, I know exactly how you feel, I have only had my CE 2 weeks and I was so excited when mine arrived, and I have drove my poor husband crazy, telling him how much I love my cricut, lol, I know crazy. Deer season opens here this weekend, so I have my 2 days all planned out, while he goes hunting, I am staying in my pjs in my craftroom, only to come out for food and bathroom breaks, hehe, have fun when it arrives!

YOu can only import a file that was created on Design Studio. You can create your own images and designs by welding images from the cartridges you have. I use the George cartridge a lot for this because it has all your basic shapes. Can you post a picture of the logo?

i can post one, but i think you've already answered my question cause the logo was an original, done in photoshop in (if i understand correctly)pdf layered form or something like that...hey i never claimed i understood this stuff....lol...anyways!!! i will ask dh when he has a minute to see if it can be done in design studio.....

i finally got to play some yesterday(night)....will play more when all "distractions" are in school....lol

question: chipboard. it dont cut all the way thru it. i went and got the deep cut blade, have the blade on six, the pressure on max(if i understood the lady in the video correctly...) and it cuts it, but it doesnt cut all the way through. what might i be doing wrong? does it cut all the way thru normally?

another question: the mat is super mondo sticky. i know it's supposed to be that way, but it curls the paper when i gently pull it off.

thanks for all the help.

you need to still use the multi cut function on the cricut to get through chip board. I thought that was why I spent the extra money on the deep cut blade to avoide that but nope!! and the mats are super sticky. If you are using paper, then I would either rub the mat on your jeans or stick your hands on it or flip on the carpet just a little to get some of the stick off..it is kind of a catch 22 because the sticky wears off rather quickly then you need to use spray adhesive to make it sticky again, but I agree it is way to sticky to begin with

Cool - thanks so much! I had BD $ that I had been saving. I ordered 2 so I can get another Jukebox and the Design Studio. I've been wanting to try the DS but I wasn't sure I would like it. Getting it for free is great so if I don't like it at least I have a cartridge I like! WooHoo!!

Design Studio will show you all the cartridges; but in order to cut with them, you must have the physical cartridges.

Default Pretty disgusted

I've had my Expression for 2 weeks now and I cannot even begin to describe the amount of expensive paper I have wasted trying to get a clean cut from my Cricut. I need help. Is there a cheat sheet with cutting settings to use when cutting Bazzill or Papertrey Ink cardstock? Now matter what do my pieces are shredded or not cut completely through the page. I am also using Scal 2.0 so the multi cut option isn't an option.

You should be able to multi cut with scal. If there isn't a multi cut option (I have scal 2 but haven't really used it much yet) you can just copy and paste the shape over itself and it should cut it out twice.

Be sure the blade housing is set to 6. Not sure what other settings you can change or modify via SCAL2.
