Cricut Machine Owners Unite!

I am excited to say, that I decided to go ahead and get my own Cricut Expression 2, because we are getting ready for our wedding, and thought it would benefit me now AND later to get one. Only own this cartridge and will hope for more in the future, especially Disney ones.

Let's get this going. See some projects, give advice, share all the fun. Maybe we can convert a few people to join us and invest into these beauties.



Only own this right cartridge right now

I have bought I think all of the Disney cartridges available. Just recently bought the newest one, with Pinnochio & Alice, but haven't had a chance to use it yet.
These always come in handy when I work on the most current scrapbook of our trip. But have also used them for cards.

You got it right The scalloped circle may have been from some other cart I can't remember.

Congratulations on your engagement! The Mini Monograms cartridge has scalloped circles and squares.

This is my next cricut project. This video is not actually mine, but this is what I want to make. Anyone interested in trying it out with me?

We are actually planning our wedding for August 2011, and looking at possibly doing our wedding invitations to look that way. Thoughts?

I just got mine in the mail too, it's still in the box. I also got the design studio to go with it.

I'll learn with you!

Looking forwards to it! I am going to start working on my wedding invitations, so it's really down to learning how to use the cricut machine properly. Will make sure to post lots of photos as I go along.

I have one too (have Mickey & Friends, Pooh & friends, both princess carts)\
but I"m a evil SCAL user so my next machine will have to use that program
see my blog to see with I"m talking about - the new cricut machines can't use SCAL anymore

Just got my Cricut for Christmas.. I have played around a bit... But the problem is after only using it a bit my mat seems to not be sticky enough ??? It grabs the paper off center and messes everything up

I tried the baby wipes helps a bit but not much...
what am I doing wrong ?

I just got the Cricut Expression for Christmas so can I join the party???

I have done lots of googling the past two weeks about using the machine. The one thing I remember reading about a non-sticky mat is to try using dawn and rub it over the mat (see if you can get any lint/paper bits off) and then run under hot water will rubbing it. There are other suggestions out there too. Just do a little searching and see what works for you.

I can't wait to start crafting with this!
