I have an app called "Good Reader"

from inside the app you can download PDF files

I downloaded both options from PC from the Cricut Library. So I have the view that is the back of the box, and the complete handbook to go with the cartridge. Works great, once saved on my phone I can flip through the pages, zoom in and zoom out.

I'm sure the handbooks look better on an ipad, but I won't be getting one of those anytime soon, so the phone works for me.

Hope this helps

I think I have the ones you are talking about - they look kind of like the 12x12 boxes that you use for paper, but they have the white inserts to hold the carts and books?

They're ok - they are pretty good for storage in my studio, but they were kind of bulky for taking to a crop. A friend of mine has the ones from Provocraft that hold 12 and I'm actually thinking about getting a couple of those. That, or the one from cgull that matches my rolling bag; probably the PC ones though b/c they are cheaper.

That's exactly what I did; I have them on my iPad. Goodreader is definitely one of the best apps for PDFs. You can also put PDFs into iBooks if you don't want to use GoodReader.

I didn't realize the box pictures were on the PC website though - I'm going to have to get them!

This really has nothing to do with the thread, but I was wondering if you could tell me what this means. I just tried to update my gypsy, and my computer reads:
UPLOADING UPDATES Gypsy Imagine-content-full
There is no moving lines (as in actively updating. I left the computer on and left my home because it was taking so so long. I came home to this message on the screen.)
The gypsy hand held gadget still says connected. Do you know if I should disconnect, and have to go through the entire process again? CRICUT.COM is closed for the long weekend. Would you be able to help me with your past experience regarding the uploading update process? Hope you can help. Thank you. Diane

Diane,
I'm assuming by now you've simply unplugged your Gypsy from the computer. That's what I had to do when I did the last update process.

If you do not own an imagine do not download the imagine content (takes up memory space you won't be using).

My Gypsy sat in the cycle for over an hour and I got frustrated and unplugged it. Then I turned the Gypsy off, turned it back on, did the sync again (not doing the imagine update since I don't have one either) and it showed up to date and everything worked well.

Try, that and see if it's working fine.

On the Provo Craft message board there is a Gypsy dedicated forum if you need more help.

There are also some great videos on YouTube about the layering technique. Check um out. Just search Disney and cricut.

Diane,

I couldn't get my Gypsy to update either (I have both an Exprssion and Expression 2). I finally called the Cricut Support # 1-877-727-4288 and was told that the port in my Gypsy was not working. I have to return it for a replacement. The customer service was excellent. I would suggest you call them with your porblem. Good luck!

Thanks Marsh730. I ended up calling cricut support too, and yes they were helpful, and so patient. I wish I had the problem earlier in the work week. They would've been available to take my call before the long weekend. Live and learn, and plan well. Thanks again Marsh.

Ok... I'm very new at all of this digital cutting stuff and think I made a big mistake. I purchased the Cricut and also the Design Studio. After almost throwing it out the window I realized that I can only cut designs on the cartridges... not from free downloads. (If I'm wrong, please correct me) So I'm considering purchasing another cutting machine but have no idea which one. Can I please get a little guideance here from you more experienced crafters?!?! (I'm almost ready to throw in the towel)
Thank you for your help!!!

What free downloads do you mean? If you mean the free .svg's, you can use your Cricut to cut them but you need a third party program to use them. SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) is the one I use, but I know there are issues with Provocraft suing them so you will only be able to use Provocraft's cartridges with a Cricut. Otherwise, yes - you can only cut the cartridges with a Cricut.

I know other people have talked online about getting Silhouette cutter but I have no idea where to get one. You can use SVG's with those. Maybe poke around at SVGCuts.com and see if they have any information on their site or on their forums?

Good luck

Do any of you ladies know where I could get any dinasaur files to cut, apparently our grandson is mad on them so I thought it would be a good theme for his 3rd Birthday card.

Check svgcuts.com ... I seem to remember a cute SVG set that you can cut with SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot).
Otherwise, there are some cute dino's on Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, and I think there may even me a realistic dino cartridge out there somewhere.

I would think it would work. I haven't used that particular re-positional adhesive, but I have used the Tombo Multi Liquid Glue. It can be used as removable or permanent. I find it at my local JoAnn's or Michael's and it is only usually $3 and a little goes a long ways and it works great for getting the mats sticky again as well as gluing all types of paper crafts.

How would you use this glue? Do you spread it on the mat?

This glue has two different sized applicators, so I use the bigger side and put just a little glue on and brush it around with a cheap foam paint brush. Just remember a little goes a long ways, so don't put too much glue on or it will make it very hard to get the paper off once you cut it. Once the glue is dry, I season the mat, like as if I had purchased it new, by running my hands over it multiple times. The oils from your hands will help make it not too sticky. Hope this helps.

Question transfering Design Studio files to Gypsy

Can you transfer files you design in Design Studio to the Gypsy? I like the Gypsy Font but hate designing anything on the Gypsy's tiny screen. I'd like to be able to design in Design Studio with the Gypsy Font then transfer to the Gypsy so I can cut it out. Clear as mud? LOL Any help would be appreciated.

anyone have the E2? mine was a gift and I'm having such a hard time with it. I prefer the side scrolls for changing the size and speed, and I really prefer being able to move the needle directly to the are to be cut.....When I try to upgrade to the new version, my computer gives me the message Windows XP is not accepting the version and it tells me I can mess up either or both my computer and E2. I have posted many many messages on the message board and sent numberous requests to PC asking what to do. No reply from anyone other than one person said ignore the note as she did and nothing happened and another person said contact PC.....

Any help is greatly appreciated...

thanks

I purchased some chipboard for my Cricut and every time I use it with the deep cut blade and housing the Cricut sounds like it is going to die, so I immediately stop cutting. I have used cereal boxes in the past and those work well, but any store bought chipboard worries me. I have a multi-pack that I got at Joann's and a pack that I intentionally purchased from Amazon being told that it was a good chipboard thickness for the Cricut. Any help!?

Morissa, I don't use the Deep Cut blade. I use the regular blade, set speed and pressure to 5, and use the Multicut function. I find that 3 or 4 cuts usually do the trick. The chipboard can't be too thick, though. I've used chipboard that is a little bit heavier than cereal boxes, similar to poster board (which also cuts very well the way I described). I do keep a separate blade for chipboard/acetate. This is what has worked for me since I've had my Cricut. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I think the density of the chipboard is a big factor too. I'm pretty sure cereal box is not very dense due to it being a temporary item (once the cereal, which isn't heavy anyway, is gone-the box is usually tossed).

Just got my first Cricut tonite at Joann's. It's the original - and I am now overwhelmed with what extra cartridges to buy. Do the Cricut Solutions cartridges work in the Cricut Personal Cutter? I've seen a few that I like, but I'm not sure if they will work in my machine.

The Imagine cartridges are the only ones you can't use in the personal Cricut.

That is true. Provo Craft sued the makers of Make the Cut and Sure Cuts a Lot and I believe both were settled out of court, but the result is that they had to disable cricut functionality on them. The programs do work with pretty much every other cutter on the market. Just not the cricut.

To make a long story short, I have not been able to use my craft room for some 9 months. I'm back in there now and just about to start using my Cricut again. Are you telling me that I paid for SCAL and that I now can NOT use it with my Cricut???

If you still have the older version, it will work with the cricut. But the new won't and the old is no longer available to download. So I would back up the exe files you originally downloaded.

I've had my Gypsy for 9 months and have updated it several times, but not used it.

I thought I had to update everything my "computer" wanted to put on it and really I don't? I haven't updated in about 3 months - I guess I should again.....
