I'm so psyched. I just received the 'Ultimate Creative Series Sampler' cartridge. No video with it but I only plan to use it to create cards. Now I have an abundunce of butterflies, birds, & cupake images lol. It seems these 3 images appear on most of the cricket carts. That aside, there are sooooooo many images I don't have cause I don't have that many carts. I'm hoping this will be the last one I purchase for a long, long time. Unfortunately (for me), I'm not a creative person per se. I have no inspiration/thoughts of my own. It takes me forever just to decide on the paper. Browsing through the images, I do have an idea for using the fan and now I can 'create a critter'. YT here I come.
Best,
Mollyz

Default About that Cricut PDF inventory sheet... ???

Then it lets you pick the cartridge you want and on the right-hand side there is a box with some options in it. Pick cartridge sample and it will bring up a PDF file that you can save that has everything on the cartridge. I don't think it works for the Disney ones but all the regular ones should have it.

And like someone else said, the newsletter is great! They give you tips for using your machine and different ideas for the cartridges. They also include a project. The web site also lets you see past newsletters, I think.

Can you tell I LOVE my Cricut???

Where do you see that PDF sample sheet? I too have everything in a binder for quick reference. But I haven't added my Cricut cartridges because I don't have a way of showing all that each cartridge can do.

I'm not feeling the love for this BUG yet I'm still trying to figure it out

If you go here - Cricut® cartridges - there are PDF links under "handbook" for most of the carts.

Default For Canadian repositioning of mat

Just wanted to let the Canadians know that when your mat starts to become not so sticky, you can buy Krylon Easy Tack and lightly spray is on.
Cover your edges so the rollers on your machine don't become sticky. Works like a charm! Found it at a Zeller's store if your believe that!!! . Anyway, just thought I'd pass the information along!

I've just changed my cutting blade and my machine is cutting quite well but I always worry that I haven't put the blade in the housing in the right position, I know the arrow has to go to the front but should it be level with where the join in the housing is or just to the left as it looks on the diagram in the manual.

I found a blog that explained how to use this score blade. You can only use it for the tbb&m 2 cart. from how I read it, and they will eventually make more carts you can use this for? Anyway she goes on to say as an example:
The shift base of the milkcarton for example is actually the scoring feature. You would replace your cutting blade with the score blade for this part. You would then unload your mat, replace the blade with the cutting blade, load your mat and it would return to the place you scored, then cut the Base milk carton. I sure hope the handbook that comes with the cart explains each one for me.

Question

Has anyone used the Scotch restickable glue sticks to resticky their cricut mats? Just saw a tutorial on youtube. Might have to try it! Just wondered if anyone had already tried it.

Default restickying Cricut mats

I have used the Zig wide chisel tip glue. It is a blue tube with a white cap. wash your mat with dish soap, be sure to scrape off any bits of paper and dry it Then go over the mat, inside the border of the actual cutting surface with the glue and let dry. It will be tacky to the touch once dry and will hold the clear vinyl cover. Works like a charm.

I used Aleenes´s tack-it over and over glue for my mat and that works great as long as you clean the mat well beforehand. I bought it from Michaels and you mix it with water and put it on with a sponge taking care to keep the edges clean. There is a youtube about it somewhere.

Smile Cricut 12 x 12 Cutting Mats new vs old

Hi,
I am wondering what the difference is between the new cutting mats that Cricut is selling and their old style. I see the old style going for a bunch of money on ebay, and wondering why. Is there something less desireable about the new one?
Thanks!
Annette

Default Shannon aka AZShann is Amazing!

Not too long ago, Shannon showed a card with beautiful cuttings from her Cricut. She used Paper Lace cartridge. I asked her how she got such intricut cuttings without tearing the images. She replied a great answer, and then went on to really show me what settings and pressures she used! She even told me what kind of cardstocks she used--because she uses more than one! I was so impressed and blown away with her detailed answers and she even showed me her cuts in a Picassa link!
Splitcoast is wonderful because all you have to do is ask someone a question and our wonderful Splitcoast people --and Shannon is one of them--go all out to help! What a place! I don't know many websites like this where everyone is so nice and helpful!
Shannon outdid herself to help little ol' me! I so appreciate it, and want everyone to know how great our Splitcoast people are!
Thanks Shannon, you are the greatest!

The only difference that I know of is that the newer mats do not stick as well. The newer mats I bought only were sticky enough for the first few uses. Pitiful!!! I've seen this mentioned somewhere on this site before, and if I remember right, they started making them differently to either be used on both the imagine and regular cricuts, or because people were having severe allergic reactions to them, causing serious asthma attacks. Maybe someone here knows more about it. Supposedly, you can somehow activate the stickiness in the newer mats by getting them wet and rubbing across them with the water with your hand. You might also check the cricut message board. Cricut Forums I've read info about this topic on that site also.
I'm just going to try to resticky the ones I have. There are videos on youtube and lots of posts on this site and others about making mats sticky again using different types of glues or sprays.

Hi there. I am finally busting out my Expressions 2 that I got from Santa. Can someone please tell me if I can cut out a mirror image. I am trying to make a name frame using vinyl and I need the adhesive to be on the TOP of the letters as I am adhering the letters to the bottom of the glass.

YIKES....did that make sense? LOL

After reading and reading your post I'm confused even more. When I do my name frames I just put the vinyl on the outside of the frame (on top the glass) I just use the sticky back on the vinyl. Now when I put the letters on the inside I just attach it to the cardstock or whatever I'm using for the background. I also use just regular masking tape from the dollar store. I don't use the expensive transfer sheets unless I get it for free. Why do you want to stick it like the way your explaining?

To me it looks like the last name is on the bottom of the glass and the first names are on the top of the glass???

I have been out of the crafting loop and I'm looking to get back into it. I have the smaller Cricut and I'm thinking I want Santa to bring me the bigger one. Well, now there are TWO of the bigger ones. YIKES!
I would like to know whether it's worth getting the E2 or just getting the original expression. I have the personal cricut.

What's the difference between E and E2?

The E2 is the first Cricut I've owned, so I can't legitimately answer that, I can only say the lady at my LSS who gave a class on the E2 felt it was easier than the regular E and I think it's easy to operate.
Everything is on the screen and I love how I can put small scraps of paper down and decide exactly where and how big it will cut. I don't know if the regular E is this flexible, but you can adjust size from 1/4" to 1/10" and do inches, centimeters or millimeters. You can also save paper settings for types of paper you frequently cut, ie Bazill cardstock, Vellum, etc.
I would Google some of the videos and you'll find blogs showing the features of the E2 and talking about the differences. Also this link: www.cricut.com/expression2, or Cricut® Classroom Video Library which is my favorite, and click on the video for the E2 Anniversary Edition. It's a very comprehensive video for the E2, and well done by ProvoCraft.
Good luck with your decision.......

Does anyone know whether you can resell Cricut Design Studio? I want to sell my Cricut "empire" and get a Gazelle. I am finding that the Cricut is soo restrictive and I want to be able to use more then just the carts. I just bought the Design Studio and loaded it on my computer but am not sure, since I have kept the serial information for Design Studio if it can be used when I sell it?
HELP! LOL

Are you using the Transfer Tape? I'm not sure if it helps it stick or not. I put some on a smooth door and it's been there over a year. I didn't use the transfer tape.

I was going to put some on a Terra Cotta plant pot but I was afraid the vinyl would come off when it got wet. Does anyone know if it stays on when it gets rained on?

Transfer Tape is put on the vinyl to help keep the vinyl from stretching or twisting or tearing. I wish I'd known about it before I did my bedroom door. I've done vinyl decorating both with and without the transfer tape and it's 100% easier with the tape. I bought mine from Oh My Vinyl.

I used it to make sunflowers to stick on flower pots for my goddaughter's bridal shower 2 years ago, and it's still stuck. I've planted in them and watered the plants, and nothing has lifted or loosened.

The vinyl also sticks to textured walls. The walls in my house have texture (it's a 40+ year old house). I've had vinyl up on my bathroom walls for at least a year and it's still going strong. I did color some detail with sharpies and bic permanent markers. the bic markers have a better color selection but the color faded. The sharpies are still going strong.

Check out the July 2010 posts on my blog for pictures

I have finally decided to invest in the Cricut, I want the Expression 2, what I want to know is there somewhere you can go to get a break in the price? Places like Michaels and AC Moore, will not let you use coupons for them. Does anyone know where there might be a sale on one right now? I do know that ACMoore has it for sale at $249.99. Is that a good price? I am overwhelmed by the amount of information on the Critcut here, what a fabulous resource!! Now I really cannot wait to get one!
Thanks for the help.

No, I think the Amazon price is for the Expression with 2 cartridges, not the Expression 2.

I have a general cricut question- I have stored my carts in the plastic cart storage boxes you can get from Michaels or Joanns, Is there any reason to keep the original boxes you get when you purchase the cart? I have them in a box currently but if I don't have to keep them then I would like to save the storage space.

Only reason I can think of is if you are considering resale. Personally if I like a retired cartridge I don't care if it is in a box or not when I purchase.

That is what I felt, I have no intention of reselling them, and personally I wouldn't care if its in the box, so to the recycling center the boxes will go, YEAH two less boxes in the basement

Have you considered covering the boxes with dp and making them into stamping projects? They are a nice size for tons of things and the magnetic lid is handy.

I decorated the box. It has many uses. It makes a great little scrappers tool box, a pencil box or a candy box. It's amazing how much you can get in one of these boxes. My tool kit is still in very good shape considering how much I carry it in my purse and throw it in the backseat of my car.

I was wondering ...

I can't afford the big cricut machine, will the personal do just as well. I know it won't cut bigger than 8.5 x 11. But that's not a problem for me.

I have the baby cricut also, and love it too. It won't cut larger sizes, and won't cut the larger shapes like the cards and envies of size on the Just Because cart, but it is still awesome. It doesn't have a few of the options like center point or flip. But one advantage it has is that it cuts perfect circles. Some of the Expressions will not cut circles exactly right. It also takes up less space than the Expression, so that is a plus also. I guess it just depends on what you want...
Around certain holidays, some of the sites put them on sale; Cricutmachine.com etc..

The personal cricut mat is only 6" wide, and will cut shapes up to 5.5" wide.
