I had followed a link yesterday I believe from scs and they had cartridges for about $40, but I can't find it today. It was late last night and I forgot to save it. My mom got a cricut for Christmas and I want her to buy more cartridges----he-he. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

might be creativeXpress. they usually have sales dont know the exact website address but their might be a link in the cricut chatter thread the first one. also Supergal Ithink w/66 on the end sells carts on ebay for 35$ plus 5$ shipping. she is lousy at communicating with but she usually throws in free mats or blades and sends the carts the week she gets the payment, I have been pleased with her deliveryand havent had a problem but it can be frustrating if you want to talk to/or email her...HTH

Thanks for the links. The customcrops was it. I knew you all would know. I love this site. It really shouldn't be just a stampin' site, it should be it's own seach engine. Google, yahoo, scs..................... Thanks again, now I can quit driving myself crazy.

I have trouble with the blade chewing the paper up. I was using the pea pod design when this happened the most. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Tam

Default nestablities & the cricut

NOTE TO THOSE WHO ASKED WITH OUT QUOTING EVERYONE:

Cuttlebug for nestabilities,

Cricut has multiple ways for cutting Like nestabilities;

W/O the software you can cut cirles and squares using the Mini Monograms Scalloped & Regular foundations. These scallops arenot as tiny as Nestability ones are...But I use them and like them just fine, use them all the time.

Using the software:

You can make the scalloped circles and squares into ovals or rectangles just the loops are elongated.

If you want to take the time. You can use the shapes in george and the circle and make it tiny and copy and move them all around the edge of the shapes and make your own scallops, and then weld them, but once you have the template made and saved you can reuse them multiple times to cut what ever you want.

To emboss the edge like nestabilities you just need to cut the original shape you put loops around out of chip board and use a mouse pad and emboss in the cuttlebug after you cut the shape with your cricut the edge embosses the card slightly inside the loops or the same making the original shpe slightly smaller about 1/8th of an inch for the straight edge. I know its work, but doable...some people like me, sometimes have more time than money. silhouette shapes can be embossed the same way. I dont use a mouse pad but use my rubber mat I got with my Big Impression starter kit(BISK) the same one I use to emboss with the brass templates in my Cuttlebug..

Default Does anyone have the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cricut Cartridge?

I'm wondering if anyone has the "Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cricut Cartridge" and if so how large you can make the boxes? The main image that describes it says 1" to 5.5" but I'm not sure how that relates to the boxes? are they really small even at the 5.5 setting?

I was wondering this very same question!! I have the Cricut Expressions, I might give it a try later tonight to see just how big I can get...only thing is, I only have the 12 x 12 mat that came with the machine...WOW! I just can't afford all of the "neato attachments!" LOL
Most are all on my "wishlist"!

My bff just bought hers at our local Wal*Mart for $184.00...SOOO I would say if it was for $100, that might be a good deal, but you also mentioned it did not come with the George cart.
You might be able to find that cart or others cheaper.
I just bought "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More" at our local Hobby Lobby for $35.00
(which almost had me PIMPing!)

Thumbs up Mats too sticky? Read on...

This was in the Cricut e-newsletter today:

TIPS TREASURE CHEST - Mat too sticky?

Question:
I got a nice supply of mats to go with my Expression. Problem is . . . they are too sticky and hold onto the paper for dear life. I'm still learning and I end up tearing up a lot of newly cut projects when removing them and having to scrape paper residue off the mats. Is there some way to "tame down" the sticky on new mats?- RosemaryHagedorn

Answers and Suggestions:
1. It may be the paper you are using. If it is light weight, like printer paper it will stick and be hard to remove. Cardstock works much better. I use the little hook in the tool kit and it works well.- MaryDirector

2. I too had the too sticky problem. What I do is use heavy card stock first, before I use paper. This method seems to wick up some of the tackiness and allows me to use paper without it tearing. -eja

3. The spatula works wonders for removing the cuts on the first super sticky run, and the scraper is a lifesaver!- knarrly

4. I just got mine and I tried a tip from another site that dental floss works well to remove the paper without making it curl up! It works really well! I was able to take off the unused paper and then remove my cut items more easily.- TeresaSmith

5. My mats were not quite this sticky - however, I bent the mats slightly which helped the paper pop off very easily - i did many christmas labels and decorations and bending the mat slightly worked with different papers and designs - the little hook tool helped with the rest - hope this helps. - BarbaraHanson

Default Can't find 12x12 mats locally...

...you can cut those 12x24 mats in 1/2. Yep, I did it...I hummed, and hah-ed, and waffled between "should I?" and "shouldn't I?", and then, I just pulled out the scissors and snip, snip, snipped my way to two new mats! The cut was easy and clean, and I did it on the 12" line. I've cut a full page embellie and some smaller stuff and no problemo folks! So, if you're WM or Michaels sells only the 12x24 mats (makes no sense, I know) then do it...just go buy those big mats, and cut one down to size!!!

if you don't have the expression, the flower top box is small..it will hold a tea light maybe 2....but if you have the expression, dial it all the way up and you will have a nice sized box, still small, but nice for favors etc.
I really like mine..I made 75 little flower boxes for a shower, made the window in front and put a tea light in each with the bride and grooms monogram on the back.

Should I buy the Cricut or the Cricut Expressions. Is it worth the additional money for the Expression? What is the USB port on the machine for?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I own both, and I use both. I have the expressions hooked up the my computer. The USB port is for interfacing the cricut to the computer. The software is pretty neat, you can weld, and it actually has helped me not waste as much paper. Because you can rotate and move your choice shapes all over the paper. The question of which to buy depoends on size of your cut outs or shapes. If youre primarily a card maker, the original is great. If you do layouts or want to mass produce, then the larger one is helpful. Sorry, but in the end it comes down to what you would like to do with it. Either way you CANNOT go wrong. It is such a fantastic product.

I have 12 cartridges (gasp!) and I would have to say that the one I find most all-round versatile is doodlecharms. It has something on it for just about any occasion ~ baby, halloween, thanksgiving, christmas etc. Just my .02 of course, but probably the one I reach for most often.

Default cricut

Yes, you have the blade in wrong...I did the same thing...you need to have the green thing almost at the paper...it looks like the locking thing goes around the middle of the green blade holder, but put it down farther and see if it locks in .

scrapinnut620........I have several of them. For very small things, I use the X one, works terrific! I also use the 500 and the 2 and 4 inch hand held ones. The 900 one I don't use all that often, but do at times use it on my cards.

Default X one

I have the X Xyron. I must be doing something wrong as when I put the aplabets in there I feel like I am either scrunching them up since I can't see where they gat places, or I am wasting adhesive, or they just won't stick well. What is the 2 and 4?

When using the Xyron with really small letters, put the letters onto the sticky side of a post it note that is small enough to fit through the Xyron first....no lost pieces and you just take the post it off the top of the letters when you take it out and the sticky is on the back.

That is such an awesome tip! I never would have come up with that one! Thanks.

Default basting temp spray on Mats

I clean my cutting mat with soap and water and then dry. A light spray of basting temp adhesive (in the sewing section) keeps them like brand new. Haven't had to by a new mat since!

Can this be done? Does it depend on the cartridge? Can the original cricut do this? Do I need the cricut software for cutting out whole phrases/names??

TIA!!

Yes, you can do this - but only with the software. That's a huge benefit of having the software. The software opens up unlimited options for Cricut owners.

I have welded everything including shapes to make borders to go across the page. It takes a little work, but you have a preview button that allows you to see what you cut, before you cut. Yes, names or places, whatever, can be one word. No more individual letters unlesss you choose. It's a great thing. I'm kind of an addict I suppose. Either cricut can do it. Any cartridge, and yes this requires the software.

I was watching the infomercial on the cricut and say that they were using a sticky material that she put on the wall over the door. Has anyone seen this? Anyways i was wondering if anyone knew what this was and where i might be able to get it..

Are you referring to the wall words, or quotes she put over the door? I too saw the infomercial. It is cricut vinyl, and I just ordered some off of ebay. It is a vinyl with an adhesiving backing. You cut the letters you want, peel off the backing to expose the adhesive and stick it on the wall I can't wait to try it, as the wall words are soooo pricey!
