What cardstock seems to work best in the cricut expression and which one's should I avoid? Also, I have mostly 81/2 x11 cardstock right now, I can still use this in the bigger cricut, right(I know it's probably a really dumb question)?
Thanks
Susan

I ordered mine from online (same place as the infomercial)
I am doing the payment plan and called them when my card was billed, said they would not bill until it was shipped. It shipped on the 10th, but she said that it does take about 3 weeks shipping
I ask her if they used pony express. She said "we use a priority shipping that will ensure that you get it in great condition and not damaged"
She also stressed that it "usually takes much less time"
So here's hoping our new bugs here soon

You can use any sized paper you want, you just have to line it up with the cutting blade with the arrow buttons.

I think 65lb or 80lb cardstock works the best -I use Stampin' UP which is 80lb, Colormates which is 65lb, and Paper24/7 which is 65lb. They are seem to cut perfectly as long as the blade isn't completely dull. The thin stuff you sometimes get in the craft store brand multipacks shreds sometimes even with a new blade.

Does anyone have Parallels 3.0 running XPsp2 installed on their MAC and are using the Cricut Design Studio? If so, does it work okay?

Thanks 9kids for the info. There are 3 programs for the MAC - Parallels, BootCamp and VMWare Fusion. Will check to see how Parallels and VMWare Fusion compare. At least there is a system that will allow me to use DS on my MAC.

I just purchased the Expression yesterday after doing a demo on it in AC Moore. During demo I only used 12x12 sticky mat.

Now at home I am trying to use a 12x6 sticky mat. When it starts to cut the mat moves so I have to stop it.

Am I not able to use the small 12x6 mat? Must I only use 12x12 as the smallest size mat?

If I can use the 12x6 mat, how do I position it so that it stays straight as machine is cutting?

Any help or info would be appreciated.

You can't use the 12 x 6 mat. Maybe if you cut it so that the length of it matches the width of a regular mat but the mat needs to be under both rollers at the same time. Why are you trying to use a smaller mat?

The 12x6 mat is made specifically for the original Cricut and is not of use on the Expression. The 12x12 and the 12x24 mats are made for the Expression. Why would you want to use the 12x6? You can put ANY size on the other mats.

Shell.......Thanks for your reply. After making my post, I went to the Cricut website and watched the 3 videos on the Expression. I found the info as you told me also that you can't use the 12x6 mat.

The reason for my inquiry is that I have 8 packages of the 12x6 mats and of course don't want to waste them. I'll just have to utilize the original Cricut for smaller projects so that I can use the smaller mats. Oh well, I tried!

Gale.......I don't think cutting the smaller mat to fit would be a good idea, but I'm sure someone has done, just not me.

Thanks again to both of you for responding to my inquiry.

Patti

By the way.......If anyone is new to the Expression, I would suggest taking the time to watch the videos for the machine to get a good background. There are 3 ....Intro through Advanced. I found them to be excellent.

You might be able to sell the small mats here in the BST forum.

I still have my original bug and still use my little mats. I find the little one handy to use for my smaller projects. I don't have as many mats for my Ebug, and they are a bit more expensive. It's good for me to still use the little bug from time to time.

I'm glad you found the videos and that you were able to use them. Can't wait to see what you create with your new big bug!!!

Thanks for your comments ladies. The additional features of this machine are amazing. If I function with 3 printers for my computer, I guess I can function with both Cricuts.

Now I need my local AC Moore store to run a sale on the Cricut items so I can purchase a bunch of 12x12 mats. At least I have 3 stores in my driving area. Wouldn't take the chance of internet ordering. Don't want them bent in shipping.

Can't use coupons on Cricut items, but I can use my Rewards certificate!

Lucky you!!!! I don't have an A.C. Moore anywhere close to me. The nearest one is about 1 1/2 hours away. So sad.

craftsrlb.....Coupons from AC Moore and Michaels state directly on them that they are not valid for all Cricut products. Can't get around that, just have to live with it. AC Moore does put the Cricut items on sale quite frequently
though.

Exception.....AC Moore Rewards certificates are valid for Cricut products though.

Does everyone know that on www.costco.com that the Cricut Expression is $279.99 with s/h included?

And that many cartridges are $59.99...

Good thoughts for Christmas

While I love costco I think you can do better on cartridges elsewhere.

http://www.scrappersmusthaves.com/cr...artridges.html Has cartridges as low as $29.95.

Don't pay $59.99 unless it is one of the newer cartridge. Scrappers Must Have has excellent customer service. I have nevered ordered from Creative Express but I have heard great thing about them too.

I believe the Cricut came out in 2006. As far as I know, NONE of the carts are 'retired' as of yet.

The Cricut Expression came out last year, I think, and the Cricut Create came out this year.

Ink? there is ink? I'm even more new than you! lol

I know I saw on the Cricut website, this video of how the Cricut works. Now the weird thing is that they were holding up a mickey mouse and he was all "colored"....i didn't get it. Wouldn't you have to cut the shoes in one color, pants in another, mickey himself, his face, etc?

Default cricut ink

you insert the markers just like you did the blade assembly....the marker will draw the object, switch to the blade again, and it will cut it out just outside the marker so you have a border on your item....play with it, its fun.

Yes. BUT that's really easy if you have the design studio. You can cut all of the pieces at one time.

Hi, I am new to dye cutting also, and I too am confused about how to get things looking like they are in the pictures. Do you have to have the markers to make all the colors? Or Do you cut the same things in differents colors and overlap them some how. For example I just bought the expression and on the front of the cart. that came with it there is a picture of grass with flowers growing out of it. How do you get the flower and the stems and the grass all to be different colors?

I'm sure this is something really basic that I just don't know, but I've been online ALL DAY today and I can't find how to do this any where. Can somebody PLEASE explain the process to me or tell me where I can go to find more information?

No, you cut them in different colors and paper piece them.

Usually the book that comes with the cart will have a little bit of detail inside showing how to do that. Let me know if you need more help.

Hello All - I am new to the thread but have been lovin my expression for a couple of months now. I'm hoping someone on here has the answer to my problem/question...

for christmas I am making my coworkers some candy and I am looking for a box to cut out using my cricut. I don't seem to have what I am looking for on my cartridges. I am looking for something like a little fudge box. Like the square box you can make on Bags Tags but in a rectangle shape. Or even a two piece top and bottom box like a shirt box.

Does any cricut cart have anything like what I am looking for? Thanks so much for any and all help.

PS Found this on another thread here on SCS and thought y'all would like to see it in case you hadn't yet, its regarding Michaels Sale Thanksgiving and day after

I was in my local M's today which unfortunately isn't the new
prototype, but I ran into someone I know who works there. She had the
Thanksgiving Day (yes the day of Thanksgiving they will be open from
6-9pm) ad
. She folded it up and handed it to me. Here is the damage-

All Cricut carts will be only $29.99!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is freaking
amazing!

The Cricut Create, the inbetween the regular Cricut and Expression
will only be $149!!! That is 50% off. They are usually $299.

The Cricut Juke Box will be only $49.99 down from $99.99

All Storage cubes are 40% off- not bad if you want to buy a bunch in
one day with no coupons.

All wood rubber stamps will be 50% off
