I'm so glad you got to play yesterday Kathy!! My chores are almost done! I just need to get off the computer and mop the kitchen floor. I did most of my laundry yesterday and am not doing it again until tomorrow. OT- I have decided that Monday and Thursdays are laundry day.

I just almost bought Locker Talk. Should I or shouldn't I??? I already have Making the Grade. I am definitely getting Stretch your Imagination on December 1st. I have some extra money from selling a GPS unit on ebay and my DH said "That's just enough for 2 cartridges". Funny how he thinks!!

Talking

Guess what? I got my Cricut Exp. a day early. I visited a friend this morning to encourage her and when I got home there was the box. OK - it's all put together, but I have a question. Where do you set the cutter dial? I've read my manual and it just says it may need to be adjusted with different cutting materials. Is there a general number I should try. I'll probably be using a lot of SU! CS. TIA.

I haven't turned it on yet!!

TRY AC MOORE ONLINE...THEY HAVE A DEAL RIGHT NOW FOR 129.99 WITH FREE SHIPPING ON YOUR FIRST ONLINE ORDER....UNLESS YOU CAN FIND ONE ON CLEARANCE AT MICHAELS, LIKE I DID FOR 79 DOLLARS. IF I HADNT FOUND MINE AT MICHAELS, I WAS READY TO BUY ONE FROM ACMOORE.

I think if you have making the grade you dont need locker talk.

You have trained your DH really well.

I am getting stretch your imagination, I am up in the air with the new christmas one, and strong maybe on paperdolls Definately doing the software. I liked "talking/speaking winter". I know its an alphabet, but I loved the snowflakes and snowmen and I could see using them on and for starting of words in scrapbooking and cards.

SU usually definately 6for blade and 5pressure and speed.

other cs and designer paper usually 3 works good luck, each amchine is diffierent and you'll need to adjust it.
Glad it came a day early have fun

Ya know, I didn't get the Princess carts. I have the other two Disney carts so I didn't think I needed those. My girls are almost 10 and 8 and I don't know how much longer they will be into Princesses. Maybe I will end up with them but I am not sure.

My daughters love the princesses. They still give their friends princess stuff for B-days. and they're in HS and college. A girl is always a princess!

I need to get them I was going to get just one but I think I am getting both.
Just a little tight on funds this year. I just have to wait for the college year and My DD braces to be paid for. 4-5 months then I am getting them both. Now that I know I candraw them and color them I am so looking forward to it.

good for you! when you get it, make sure you use cardstock on your new sticky pad....you will regret it if you use regular paper....it sticks to thin paperthe first time used and is a pain to peel off. the cardstock peels off much easier.

Thank you for the advice! I'm so excited that I'm finally getting one. I originally told myself I didn't need a Cricut, but I'd get bug envy everytime I was around my friends who had one! I got the smaller one because I don't plan on cutting huge letters and I want it to be portable.

For those of you that have the tote, do you prefer the rolling cart or the one that you carry? And what cartridge is your most used? I have to start making a Christmas wish list for my dh!

I was already excited about the princesses, but was a little worried about making them small. Now I dont' have to worry about it! If I need a smaller one then I can use the markers instead and watercolor.

Now your dh knows the right way to think! I don't know what to say about locker talk. I want that one, but I don't want making the grade.

YIPPEEE!! Congratulations! Have fun playing with your new bug. I have my blade set to 6 and I use SU cardstock. I tried to set it at 5 first because that is what I had my little bug set at, but it didn't cut all the way through.

I wish that had been around 5-6 years ago when my oldest DD was in to the princesses. I wanted to put princesses on her wall and it would have been perfect for that. Even though she is not into them anymore and my younger dd never really got into the princesses, I want the cartridges for her scrapbook pages. We had 2 Cinderella birthdays and Halloweens.

For those of you that have the tote, do you prefer the rolling cart or the one that you carry? And what cartridge is your most used? I have to start making a Christmas wish list for my dh!
I use george alot for shapes and alphabet, It comes with the small machine.

I use Mini Monograms all the time for the scallopped square and circle. It is being discontinued so you might want to get the discontinued ones first.

Stamped, Mini Monograms, Christmas cheer, I cant remember the other 3 Kim list them if she has them as discontinued. they are the ones selling for less at more online stores. Zoo is good because it has an alphabet and shapes.
