Cricut Tips: January 2012

Techniques & Tips
Cricut Bug 
So I have been using my Art Philosophy Cartridge a lot! I found that if you are using the craft room to design in (a free program you download from cricut.com) that you can change 1 of the dimensions instead of changing the whole size proportionately. What this allows you to do is create oblong shapes for example. So I used heart shape 1 and change the height so it was longer and I was able to use this shape with a stamp I already had but was not typically a criut coordinate stamp set. I hope this is making sense. Another thing I was able to do was create a postage stamp mat by making the width and height perfect for a 5 x 7 photo instead of the standard porportions on the cartridge.

If you haven't got our Art Philosophy Cartridge yet, check it out here and see all 700 cuts for our exclusive cartridge and stamp collection!

Tip from Becky Purvis: Please be aware for anyone who uses the Sure Cuts A Lot with their Cricut...do NOT update your firmware or you can't use that program again.... I would cry if that happened to me. I have so much "free stuff" (thousands) invested to be able to use it with my Cricut.

Note: If you do not have the Sure Cuts A Lot and are having problems with your cricut try updating the filmware by syncing your machine: http://www.cricut.com/cricutsync/
