FYI for Gypsy owners! PC just released a new update that has most of the new carts from the past year. Most, but not all.
I'm gonna wait until the weekend to try the update.
Hopefully a few brave souls will try it and post back on how it went.

Does anyone here have/use the Expression with SCAL still? I've had mine for about 6 yrs but haven't used it nearly enough. I was not good at organizing my svg files so they're pretty much a hot mess. Plus, I hate not being able to preview them in my documents folder. Seriously thinking about upgrading to the new Explore or Cameo but just can't decide if I want to put that much more money into another machine that may or may not get used.

I actually prefer the Cricut cartridges to SCAL as far as being able to see what cut files I have but I always hated trying to get the right size for what I was cutting.

Thoughts/opinions?

We have SCAL and one of my daughters is a whiz with the program. She can, and does cut most anything she can dream up. I am not good with the program because I have not learned how to use it. I still use Design Studio and am able to get some control of my cutting, but nothing like the freedom my daughter has with SCAL. If she ever [I]has[I] to use just the Cricut or Design Studio she gets extremely frustrated.

If our time comes to replace our Cricut I would never buy another one. I am not a fan of Provocraft. I think the Cameo would be a good option. I've been told it has the same options as SCAL but is very user friendly. I want to be able to control how the machine cuts rather than the other way around. Good luck in your decision.

@Annie, so at this point you're ok with using SCAL or at least your daughter is? Could you ask her if she knows of an svg viewer that might make it easier for me to view/organize my svg files?

We are extremely happy with SCAL. I will ask my daughter your question. I am not sure she will be able to answer you as well as another person here. We tend to cut a shape with the help of Inkscape and really don't have the SVG files, rather an individualized shapes that she designs and we then cut. I am not sure I am making sense. Perhaps this example will help. When my daughter wanted to cut a piece of vinyl of her college emblem, she went online and found the image. She then worked to clean up and perfect the image with Inkscape and SCAL and we then cut it out of the vinyl and applied it to her wall.

To date we have not purchased or downloaded any SVG files from another source since she pretty much designs her own. The next time I talk to her I will ask if she has any advice and come back and post if she has any answers for you. In the meantime perhaps someone will have some great answers as to how you can view and organize your SVG files. HTH

Thanks for the help ladies. I'm embarrassed to say after having SCAL for 5 yrs, I just watched a YT video and learned something I didn't know which helps me to view my files better in the program. I'll be hanging on to it for now at least.

Could someone tell me the best place to find the images for Cricut cartridges? I'm looking at some one Ebay but want to see all of the available cuts/images.

Question Opinion of Everyday Pop-up Cards cartridge?

I bought this cartridge, haven't opened it yet, and think I am going to return it. The little that I have looked up on it suggests that trying to get the shapes to function as pop-ups is daunting. Is that the case? I'm a die fan and rarely touch the Cricut. Although I would like to do more pop-ups I think what I have in mind is pretty basic, and these images will be too challenging.

Got some personal experience with it?

I have everyday pop up cards and don't love it. It's a great idea, but it's kind of fussy to get everything right. I wouldn't recommend. Sorry!

Glad to hear an honest opinion about the cartridge. We're always so accustomed to being fed positive hype from web sites and blogs that it can be difficult to ferret out the reality. Thanks.

If anyone has questions about Cricut please check cricut.com first. They have a lot of video's. You-tube has everything on explore or expression also. If anyone is on facebook there are fantastic people on a lot of pages. Just type in cricut in search on facebook. Two very good groups are Let's learn Cricut Explore and Cricut design space. There is also a group for expression owners called Let's learn Cricut. You can ask to join the group and ask questions.

Hi,
I have a question about a Cricut Cartridge. I thought I saw one with some adorable fonts that look like fairy tale writing. There were a few different styles on one cartridge. Anyone know what that one is??
Thanks!

I just received the Cricut Explore for Christmas 2014! I have made about five or six cards and I just Love It! It is amazing! I love how it cuts-intricate and accurately! So far so good with this machine! I don't mind hooking it up to my computer and designing in Design Space at all. Works well for me. This is one cool machine! It is one of Cricut's best machines they've made! Looking for more card projects to make with it!

I'm sure this has been asked and I apologize. I just couldn't find the answer using the search tool. I also looked at the cricut website but since I don't really know what I'm looking for, I couldn't find it there, either. Anyway, what is the name of the cartridge that cuts cursive letters? Does it cut them attached to each other, like a die, or are they individual? I was looking at a bunch of dies to buy on line and then realized I might be able to achieve the same result with a cartridge. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

Here is a link to all of the font images/cartridges available: Fonts The letters cut out individually and aren't attached. If you want to connect or weld them together, you need to use Cricut Craft Room or the old Cricut Design Studio (no longer supported or updated). Some of the cartridges have words and phrases that are connected, so you would have to check all of the images on each cartridge. Hope that helps!

Question Edge to Edge cartridge

I purchased the Edge to Edge cartridge last night and I realized that it has some really great cuts that would make some awesome stencils! Has anyone ever tried making any stencils using your cricut and some light weight craft plastic/acetate? I was just wondering if I went with the lighter weight could I use the regular blade and not have to invest in the deep cut blade.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Deep cut blades don't need to be an investment. Go to ebay and search for Roland 60 degree blades. They are 5 for $5. From China I suppose. You can use them in your regular blade housing.
This is the blade I exclusively use now. Why cut with a 45 degree blade when the 60 degree blades give cleaner cut? And why on earth pay ridiculous provocraft prices for the exact same Roland blade on ebay?
Metal cricut blade housings can also be had on ebay for $9 each. I just bought 2 in December.

Hey crafters!

I just posted my first thoughts on the Cricut Explore Air (as a Cricut Product Expert) on my blog if you want to see the latest and greatest from Cricut!

Lisa is Busy Nerding: Cricut Explore Air Debut!

There's also a video on today's post that highlights the new design space! I can tell you that so far, the cutting from iPad to the machine is flawless. Amazing stuff!

Thanks!

I took the plunge yesterday AM and purchased the Explore Air! Yikes! I'm so excited! But also afraid I won't like having to use my computer to do anything with it. I started to call HSN to order but changed my mind. Then I thought about my son that will get his teaching license this May, and I decided to go ahead and get the Air. That way, if I don't like it, I'll just give it to him to use for his future classroom (+ he would really appreciate the fact that Design Space now has an app for the IPad) Hopefully I will have my new toy by Monday!

I have a Cricut Create (bought in 2010) and have Design Studio (the older program). They have worked great together until recently. Design Studio says that I need to update the Firmware on the machine. So I did that. It said update was successful. I cut 1 image and everything worked perfectly. After several minutes I needed to cut another image, and when I clicked on cut in Design Studio, it says that I need to update the firmware on the machine. UGH. I will have to call support, but any suggestions until then?

Thanks.

Trish, PC isn't supporting Design Studio anymore, so I'm not sure they will help you. You shouldn't need to update any firmware to use it. Have you tried re-starting your computer? I have a Cake Mini that was doing the same thing. I re-started my laptop a few times, and it suddenly was working fine. I wish I could be of more help, and I hope PC can give you some more help. Please let us know if this gets worked out. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Are there any cartridges out there that cover ALL the major holidays? I'm talking like all holidays on ONE cartridge. I'd like to do a "first year" baby album and would like all major holidays on one cart if possible.

Was debating on whether or not to spend the money on a Silhouette. Now I'm thinking if I should just use that money and just buy a few more cartridges? Whattya think?

I would recommend looking at The First Few Years and the CTMH Artbooking cartridges.
Both of those carts are designed with scrapbooking layouts in mind.
Go to the cricut website. You can download the cartridge hand books and look through them to see all the images.
