Hello Mel, i purchased the storage drawer today after watching the show. Love what you did and look forward to getting mine and having a play :)carroll
Hi Mel, I caught your shows on c&c today and have to say I loved the box demo; have it written down so tomorrow, whilst watching you again,(honest, I'm not a stalker ;-) ) I'm gonna have a go at making it. No doubt it will take me somewhat longer than you to do. I always try and catch your shows as you are so inspirational and I find that you explain things really well too. Best wishes, Theresa

Hello Melanie, I've got a problem that i'm sur you can help me with. I bought some cuttlebug embossing plus folders. My efforts are terrible it's either part embossed or part cut. Could you tell me what i'm doing wrong please? Thank you x
Hi Melanie,Was watching you on create and craft yesterday, and I loved your box demonstation, but I didnt quite get your measurements etc written down, so looking forward to you putting this demo on the blog for me to do the box card as i have numerous projects in the pipeline to make using this. Thank you for all your demonstrations, Linda x
Hi Mel, have been watching you this morning and just love your enthusiasm!! Have bought Paper Lace and the pack of Doflex earlier in the week so cannot wait to start! You and Hayley are the best presenters as far as I am concerned because you both explain in such great detail!! Keep up the great work! Best wishesLorna
Hi Mel, a question! I only have the Cricut Personal machine unfortunately, which i have hardly used, but also have the gypsy, my machine sizes will only reduce to a 1 inch but if I connect my Gypsy will I be able to make letters smaller? please help, I am one of those people whose mission it is this year for you to make them use their machines to there full potential lol. Is there much I CANNOT DO on this machine! Lorna x
Hi MelI love watching you on create and craft and I have had the imagine sometime but I have not used it I also have the gypsy which came to me with lots of cartridges on it but I have no books is there any way I can replace them as I feel that's where I will get the insperation from.Yours HopefullyDawnashleigh
Hi Mel, I've had my imagine for about 6 months now but i can't get it to link to my laptop so i can't update the software, I have a couple of normal cricut cartridges then i can't use with my image as it tells me my software is not up to date. any help will be gratefully received xxxxThank you Carolynbagcharmlady@hotmail.co.uk
Hi Mel, I bought the elegant edges, and paper lace this morning. then went back to watch programme, and saw the Art Noveau was also back in stock. So went back on-line and ordered that too.I have the baby cricut(personal) and Gypsy. I watched you do the center point. but it isn't on my machine, So is there any other way of doing this with the baby cricut. Thank-you Janet. email@example.com
HiAll I can say is wow. I had cricut as a Christmas present to myself and have been buying cartridges in sales up til now - had to buy four this afternoon on C&C - oh boy. My fingers are itching to play - just need to tidy some space for it all so I can play.Thanks for the inspirationLisa
Hi Mel, Bought elegant edges and rosettes and borders. I have the personal cutter and I got the Imagine in December. Still getting to know the Imagine. Are there any new cartridges coming out for the Imagine. Can you do centre point with Imagine. Do you ever do any classes in the Exeter/ Torquay area, I would love to attend one of your cricut classes. Thank-you for any info Jane. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi mel have watched your show all day mesmerised.I kept on about thr cricut machine until my husband gave in!!!!What a lovely valentines pressie.I already have the cricut bug but just HAD to have this one and e few cartridges. I would love to be able to come to one of your classes but i live in Bath in the west country a bit too far away so will have to make do with you on the tele. Have a whole day demoing that would be heaven.....Pauline
Loved your demo's over the past few days, but was so sorry when the box card proved a challenge, but you got there in the end. Well done for your great ideas love to watch.Susan
HelloI don't think you can get new books. However the cratridge will be on your Gypsy and you can see each shape on there. When you click on the feature buttons it will change the keypad overlay soo you can see each layer.Hope that helpsMelanie xxx
Hi Have had two Gypsy's. One failed after 10 months (replaced?repaired) and then the second stopped working after 15 months. No help from C & C or Cricut. Not throwing any more money at them. Loads of people on the forums with just the same problem. So have loaded Craft Room, but can't see how I get the free Basics and Fonts. Can you help please. Sorry it seems such a negative post, but that is my experience.
Sorry - maybe my e-mail address would help, Mel. email@example.com. Thanks for any help you can give.
hi Mel, along with some of the others who have commented I'm also going to one of those who you are targetting with your mission. I have pulled my original (v1) Cricut out and it's on my coffee table. I've also pulled out my cartridges (George, Lyrical Letters, Celebrations and the Ultimate Creative Series Sampler) tomorrow I start to learn and I hope to make you proud lol x
Hi Mel, love your demos on Create and Craft, I have just tried to cut a mask from some Doflex I bought before Xmas from Create and Craft. I used Cindy Loo cartridge and my Expression2, I put in a deep cut blade and asked for it to do 3 repeat cuts. At the end it hadn't cut through it though. I ever tried repeat last and did another 3 cuts but no luck, it wasn't even cut half way through. The Doflex is 1mm thick should I be using something thinner or am I doing something wrong? Best wishes Mair Wingfield
P Ann please email firstname.lastname@example.org Tell them I told you to contact them and give them your phone number so they can call you if they need to.Take careMelanie xxx
Hi MelJust had delivered the Victorian Romance did not hear the blurbon the cartridge only that it was on offer so just bought it before they sold out has justarrived and No Book is inclosed only the overlay whichI do not use(expression 2)I thought it was a full cartridgebut it only has 50 designes which is fine but do you knowif it just cuts what is on the overlay or the cartridgecover which means no shadow cuts is this correct no goodringing C&C they will just say send it back if not happydo not answers any questions unlike your youself thank goodness for you.hope days getting easier for you.Edith
HelloI have just had a look in my cartridge and it doesn't come with a book. It mis just the shape and it's overlay which you access using the shift key. It is also better on the larger Cricut as it tells you on the back to cut some of the shapes at a larger size.Hope that helpsTake careMelanie xxx
Hi Melthanks for the reply but I have no shift key showingon my expression 2 after I loaded the cartridge onlythe images?Also must tell you after your advice about the real size key I havecreated a No of diff size Butterflies,2ladies Heads & one of the ladies with the flowing hairalso some swans and fancy circlesplus ass things from the Art Nouveau and items from the heart cartridge all thanks to youif I make mistakes I just start again never thought gettingaround would be so easy only things not keen on is thevery fancy letters on the Art Nouveau not very clear to make out.Could I ask when you next do cricut expressions 2 could youdo something on how the 12x24 mats work do not understand why they show on the machines mat screen in 3 ways? ThanksEdith
