I'll have to try again. Everytime I try to update Design Studio freezes on me.

Added: Thank you! By downloading the update directly I now have the cartridge in Design Studio.

Has anyone heard when the Cricut Expression 2 will be available? I want to upgrade from my baby Cricut to one capable of doing 12x12 but if a new one is available soon I will wait.

Glad that worked for you! Your welcome.

Sorry, no I have heard nothing about Cricut 2. Will keep my ears open though.

Thank you again "davesgram". That is pretty much the same news I've read about it but the articles do not mention when it will be available. I need to know! LOL

I wish they would! I read on someone's blog that HSN or QVC would have it 4/26 but I haven't seen that anywhere else nor can I find that blog again.

The Expression is the larger one and uses a 12x12 cutting mat. The regular Cricut and Cricut Create is smaller and uses a 6x12 cutting mat. Some people call the smaller Cricut the Baby Bug.

I'm in a brain fog so help me please - I already have DS for my cricut and am happy with it and the carts I have can I run SCAL along with it or is it an either or situation? (warranties for my products are long over so I just want to know if I can have the best of both worlds if I so choose).

SCAL does not work with the Cricut cartridges, but it does allow you to cut all sorts of images and fonts that you have downloaded onto your computer. I use it and really like it. I use my Gypsy to design with my Cricut cartridges. It would be neat if there was one program that could do it all.

Provo Craft just announced that they will be opening up a Cricut Craft Room, which will be an online design studio and we will be able to create and cut from their whole library of images. That would be great! If you would like to read the information here is the link: Cricut News

Question How do I use SVG files?

If I have a SVG file how do I use it with my Cricut? Do I have to have SCAL or another similar program?

To use an SVG file you need a third party software, SCAL or Make the Cut (MTC).
I can only go on the software I have MTC, that you can cut many types of files besides SVG. I don't know about SCAL.

This is not quite accurate. According to the "Cricut News", you can create from the whole library of images, but will only be able to cut out images from cartridges that you own.

Darn, I misread that. I was wondering how they were going to make money on that kind of a deal, and now I know. That isn't going to be any different really then the Design Studio.

If you want to know more there is this facebook group "Cricut Craft Room Users", it should tell you more, probably yahoo groups that will talk you through it as well.

What is better-the Cricut Expression 2 or the Cricut Imagine? Do you think Provocraft will be coming out with an Imagine 2 soon? Will the Expression 2 be able to print? I am very excited and can't wait to get one of these, but I want to make sure I make the right choice. Where do you suggest buying them? I want to get the best price possible. Someone told me that she doesn't have to spend $90 on the cartridges and can get them for $20 or $40. Do you know where that might be? Thanks!

Just got an email from "All things Cricut"...site that sales cartridges for 50%to70% off. Anyone ever dealt with them before. Looks like they just open up 2-2011....a bit worried they might not be safe? Looking for someone who knows anything. There is no message about being new...and have no idea where they got my address? Help...really good deals...Maybe?

I have purchased from them at least a half a dozen times and my best friend as many and neither one of us has had any problems. I work in identity theft so I am very careful about companies I deal with and have never had any problem except for pizza delivery. May I suggest never using your debit card for pizza delivery as my money ended up in Istambul without me! but no problem with cricutmachine.com.

Cricut Experts,

Does anyone have experience using bulletin board paper in the Cricut? I have the new Quarter Note cart and want to decorate my classroom with large images. I would imagine because it is so thin that I would need to use a slow setting and low pressure. Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.

I would use the deep cut blade set and experiment with the settings. You would think that the settings would be uniform between machines, but they are not. I got one after using my friends and falling in love and I assumed that I would just set it to the same settings as hers. Mine needs to be at a harder pressure. I love that cartridge you got, I have been thinking about getting it but I am trying to be good about spending. I bet your classroom decor turns out awesome! Take some pics and share.

I love that cartridge you got, I have been thinking about getting it but I am trying to be good about spending. I bet your classroom decor turns out awesome! Take some pics and share.
So, I took some of the bulletin board paper home to practice with this weekend. The fibers come right off onto the mat and make a huge mess. I think it is on the level of construction paper...messy and not worth it. I think colored cardstock (even the cheap stuff) is MUCH better.
