I will be glad to make you a .jpg that you can import into SCAL if you will tell me what you're looking for.

(As long as you have SCAL 2)...

You can check out SVGcuts.com or MyScrapChick and browse their winter files for a mitten shape. Or, you could do an internet search for mitten images and see if you can find one that you can make your own SVG from. HTH!

From what I have read on various boards is that each machine, no matter what size, is a bit different. So the suggestions for pressure, blade depth and speed on one machine may not be exactly the same as on another machine. Best advice I found - test your machine with the paper you want to use (in the corner or off to the side where you'll have scrap) to see how it cuts best with that paper. Use different settings and WRITE DOWN your best performance settings with that paper. Tape it in the lid of your machine for your reference. Sometimes I get bad cuts on paper too and the settings still have to be tweaked a little, or I need a sharper blade. But when I find the right settings, my E works like a champ!
Thin papers are usually good with 3 and below blade depth, thicker paper definitely more to the high end - my machine is almost always at a 6 even with a new blade. I like to use Bazzill Bling cardstock and it's pretty heavy weight paper.
The more detailed the cut, the slower the speed.
It really depends on what paper type you are using as to the pressure settings - small sharp points on the Bling paper are tough ones for my machine, but I have the deep cut blade and use that on a lower setting and it usually works for me. The multiple cut feature I've had problems with, so I need to work on that area more.

HTH,

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I totally agree and you have said it so well. I want to add one thing that I think it also depends on the age of the blade. My blade is just about ready to be changed and I have noticed my settings need to be a little "tweeked".

Also check the scal forums. Sometimes people share shapes there.

this is wonderful! I just got my bug and a gypsy. I'm learning to use it and MTC on my laptop. I'm glad I have some place to check for technical stuff when I get stuck.

This question may already be on here, but wondering.....can I get by with the Cricut Create or do I need the Expression? Will I regret getting the smaller one and always wished I bought the Expression? Tight on money, but tired of holding out! I need a Cricut!!

Thanks!

TOTALLY depends on how big you need to cut. I LOVE having my big Cricut, but was happy with my baby bug for a long time. If you thing you will ever need/want to cut over 6x12, then go ahead with the big one.

I started out with the smaller cricut and I was happy. My suggestion is go online and watch some videos of both and think about what YOU want to do with one. Then think about which fills the bill for you. Also, there are some websites with some great prices on the Expression. So I suggest shopping around, as you might find a great deal!

I agree with Vivace and Shell. I had the baby bug first because that was all they had. I was very happy with it. I just got the E for Mothers Day this year. Think about what you will be using it for. I got my E from Ohmycrafts. sign up for their emails and you get a daily discount code which can be used for Cricut things. I happened to get lucky and got a discount and free shipping.

Also, I might be considered lazy (and that's alright LOL!) but I love the fact that I don't have to cut down paper to fit my mat. Plus, I mainly have 8 1/2 X 11 solid colored cardstock so to cut it down to 6 X 11 waste A LOT of paper. Really it's about time too.

If in doubt go big. For the price difference it is so worth it! IMO! To me the only appeal of the Create is the portability of the size but I have taken my Expression on crops!! Oh and I guess it is a little cheaper. Someone here got an Expression somewhere with extra carts for a steal of a deal. Plus, with the new Imagine out maybe the prices will go down even lower.

Whatever you decide you will love it!!!

Had a baby to start with as it was all I could afford and only a couple of months back bought my E, love it, if you have the $ I'd go for the E instead of the baby.
My tags bags and boxes cart was hopeless with the baby one, the first thing I did on the E was make a decent sized box lol

Can anyone tell me where I can find the best deal on an Expression at the current time? I am looking to purchase one for our school for the teachers to use and we are wanting to surprise them and get it for them before Thanksgiving, so they will have it to use for bulletin boards, etc.

I bought the Expression because it does more plus you can only put paper in that is 6 inches wide in the original Cricut and the Cricut Create.

I got mine in a very good deal on Black Friday a couple of years ago ($179 + a cart) - honestly if you can wait it could be worth it and you can spend that extra on either cartridges or other bits and pieces for it.

Welding letters with the Gypsy

I can't get this to work, can anyone help me? I've followed the directions and the letters seem to be welded together into one continuous word but when it cuts each letter is cut separately. I've tried welding images together also and they cut separately too. Any advice???

It might help to watch some videos on youtube. I know that helped me a LOT.

I have Design Studio, and I've watched one of the Gypsy videos. It seems to be the same idea. Be sure that you are clicking "weld" for each individual letter. HTH.

Are you overlapping those letters slightly?
They need to slightly overlap each other, then click weld for each one otherwise it will just cut
where the lines are and if they are only just touching it will still cut as individual letters or shapes.
Hope that is understandable LOL

Can anyone help? We are trying to cut chipboard, we bought the deep cut housing and blade, we are using the multi cut option and it still won't cut through completely or it eats up the chipboard.
I'm trying to help my friend and she needs this done today.
Thanks for any tips.

Would anyone be able to tell me if the Cricut Cake cartridges can be used in the original Cricut machine or are they made specifically for the cake machine?
Thanks in advance!

Happy Veteran's Day ladies.

Remember to thank a Veteran or his/her family for all that they did in the past and are doing today to keep our great nation safe and free.

Here is a card I made for a Veteran's Lunch hosted by my church.

Thank You Veterans!

I used my Cricut, Photoshop and Make the Cut.

Congrats!!! I have had mine a year now and I'm still LOVING it and using it tons. I was feeling intimidated by the whole thing, so spent some time watching various YouTube videos. Took all the fear out of the way and I hit CUT and have been off and running ever since.
ENJOY your new tool!! (yeah, I know - TOY).

Go to www.aboverubiesstudio.com and purchase a copy of Cricut A to Z. It helped me a lot as well as the videos on you tube. I love my Cricut and you will too. Good luck!

You guys are a bad influence! LOL After reading this, I went and checked it out and bought one, except I bought it on Ebay. I am a fairly new Cricut Expression owner and want to learn how to utilize it to the fullest!
Have a good day!

Just found out about this at aboverubiesstudio:

go to cricutsearch.com and find any image on any cartridge you might be looking for. This is especially great for those of us who don't own design studio or gypsy. LOVE IT. Going to look for a new cart now. check it out.

Here is the post, if you want to read it yourself:

A friend and I tried cutting CTMH chipboard on my cricut with the deep cut blade, and it made a mess of the chipboard, and would not cut correctly at all. It was WAY too thick, even when hitting cut for the same shape multiple times. However, I have used cereal boxes, soda boxes, and other items, and it has worked awesome!!!
