You are going to love it! I bought mine about 2 months ago and haven't tired of using it yet! LOL I am still learning things and enjoying doing so! Have bought several cartridges since.

we are visiting our son in san francisco in may and my daughter-in-law always takes me on a tour of the craft shops so I just wondered where you get the discount coupons from for micheals and joann`s as I`ve seen websites advertising discount coupons but was wary of going into them. Jan

They are published in the newspaper on Sunday. But I think you can go to the websites and print them out. JoAnn's are published in their by-weekly mailer. You can sign up in the store to recieve them. Hope this helps.

If you go to the store web sites and put your email address in for their newsletter they will send the coupons to your email when they come out. The same ones you can find on the Internet or newspaper, you just don't have to go looking for them. HL, M and JoAnn's do this. You can print out two or more and use them for more than one visit (one coupon per visit), or in my case, more than one store. San Antonio has several M's and HL's and they each carry a bit different selection.

An other great website is mommysavesbig.com. They always have the latest Michael's & JoAnn's coupons on there.

Default Traveling Cricut instructor??

Does anybody know anything about a lady from down South who travels around teaching a class on everything you would ever want to know about your Cricut? A friend asked me if I would be interested in such a class as a friend of hers is looking to have this woman come to our area.
Thanks,
Lauri

I was in Michael's and saw a flyer on the checkout counter. This saturday and Sunday Cricut cartridges are $9.99. It didn't list any specific cartridges except excluding the Imagine ones. I suspect they won't last long though.

I am in need of some guidance. I am trying to make something like this, but I am a little confused. Does anyone know of any blogs that could help me with the instructions on how to make these "overlays". I looked on youtube but didn't see anything.

I think I have all the tools for this. My dh bought me the teal expression for Christmas and I just bought myself the jukebox at michaels for 9.99, plus I have the design studio. However, I do not own a gypsy. Do you think this will matter not having the gypsy?

I think you could do it with the design studio, pretty sure.

Yeah, I went back and read the description. She used the welding feature, which you have on DS. Just place the shapes the way you want, then weld them. Look for videos about welding.

Diana,
don't forget, instead of letters, you are using the shapes, squares, rectangles, whatever. HTH

Thanks Vivace. It must have been too early in the morning with not enough coffee. I will check it out. I have tried a layout and saved it. I should cut it but don't want to waste the paper...

I know that my Cm consultant here in the States has them for sale. She said CM contracted with provocraft to make some exclusive ones for them. She thought they would do more for them also. HOpe this helps.

Yes I have used it. It is different but I like that I can use regular Cricut cartridges with it too. I did make some great Thank-you cards with it. I am so busy I had to mail them before I took pictures of them. I will try to upload a picture of one card I did make a card with it.
I realize most card makers here on SC love to make their own images by stamping, or die-cutting. I love that too. The Imagine just adds another dimension to card making and scrap-booking. I feel I will get the most use out of it for scrap-booking.
I am still learning and I am still starting my cartridge collection.
The hardest thing for me about my Imagine was learning to calibrate it so it cut the images printed just right. I wore out my first cricut imagine mat learning to calibrate. I simply went out and got some new Imagine cutting mats, and it's working fine! I do love it! Little does DH know that I will always be collecting cartridges now!! He thinks I have enough. I have so few because I'm new at it! He just doesn't get it! LOL! He will though. I am just glad he appreciates the work I do with cards and scrap books. That he got me the Imagine was very thoughtful indeed!

They are only offering what they have left in stock at each store from 2007 to 2009 regular Cricut cartridges. Each store has different things. They did not bring in any extra cartridges for this sale. They are just getting rid of their older stock cartridges at this price. I went as soon as our Michaels' opened and they were out of stock on almost everything. I got today Paisley and Pagoda--not ones I would typically get, but they did have some pretty flowers, and some cute images and for this price, so I did get them. These were the only two our Michael's store had. This is not the sale we would wish it to be, but a good price non the less for what they have.

Default Having Problems Linking Cartridges to Gypsy?

I posted this on the Cricut Gypsy forum, but I wanted to share it here as well. It's hard to believe this works, but it does! I tried it with the George cartridge too, and it worked again.

I just spoke with a very helpful young lady at PC who helped me link my Walk In My Garden cartridge, after I had tried everything I could think of and read about for over an hour. I told her that I would share the info.

While the status bar is progressing (if you can get it to that point), run your stylus along the bar from left to right. You have to keep doing it until you get the message that you've successfully linked the cartridge. I used the stylus and then my finger, because I didn't want to scratch up the screen. It worked! I asked her why that worked, but she didn't know. I asked my husband, who is a computer engineer, and he said that it could be that the Gypsy was looking for some kind of input, and running my stylus/finger across the screen did the trick. Weird, huh?

I'm not sure if it will work for everyone, but it's certainly worth a try. Good luck, and please post to let me know if it works or not

These are sold through CM consultants only. I don't know if it is just US consultants though. The other one is called cheerful seasons. I love the font on Reminisce. I used it with Design Studio to weld the letters for the title on thispage.

I completely forgot about this sale. I have the Paisley cartridge. It has really cute stuff on it but mostly a girly type cartridge.

Try www.scrappingtable.com. I purchased mine from her during the summer and she had the best rate at the time although all of the prices were fairly close to each other. She is still having her New Year's Sale. Even though the prices are somewhat close to each other, her website has wonderful information and she has free theme sets, free fonts, free dingbats and free templates that you can have for free if you purchased your SCAL from her.

Here's an example of what you get with just one of her templates - "Love's Little Surprises" -
"Love's Little Surprises" consists of 15 original Sure Cuts A Lot 2 & Cricut-tested templates including the following:

Candy Carton
Cookie Box
Heart Cupcake Wrap
Heart Handle Bag
Heart Latch Gift Card Box
Heart Latch Square Box
Heart Tea Light Holder
Rounded Flap Sack
Scalloped Cupcake Wrap
Straight Flap Sack
Valentine Basket 3
Valentine Basket 5
Valentine Basket 7
Valentine Envelope 1
Valentine Envelope 2


AND she's available to answer any questions that you may have, even beyond SCAL. Example - I had been told by Provocraft that I couldn't use Design Studio with my netbook. I sent her a note asking about SCAL and the netbook. She sent me a very detailed response letting me know that not only will SCAL work, so will DS, and how to make it happen.
Just LOVE the customer service, and all of the extras!!!

Then when you're ready to learn more about using it, Cara Miller thru My Creative Classroom offers an online class on it. Part 2 starts tomorrow 1/10/11. But she is repeating Part 1 in a few weeks I believe.

Hope this helps.

I purchased mine from Michelle at scrappingtable.com. She had a good price, has great instructions and offers some nice freebies.

If you use that software before your warrenty is up it will void your warrenty. Cricut customer service told me this information.

Only if you TELL them you've used it. They can't tell by looking at or using the machine if you use SCAL.


It's TOTALLY worth it.


If you can wait until Saturday, I will tell you where to get a good deal.

SCAL & MTC are installed on your COMPUTER, not on your Cricut. PC cannot know what programs you have installed on your computer.

For anyone who feels her Cricut's limited warranty will amount to anything, just wait a year (until the limited warranty expires) and then buy SCAL/MTC.

I highly recommend the program. I have been using it for more than a year and wonder how I did without it. I love it!! And it is on your computer, just controls the cricut, just like the Design Studio, which is by PC.
