Hello my crafty friends,
Tomorrow I am guesting a Slice Fabrique show. It is a fab little machine so tune in to see more. The show is at nine. Then at one I am doing Jesse James beads with three new stunning sets.
Enjoy and thank you for your support over the past two days.
Brilliant Cricut shows Mel. Now C&C is on longer (after 6 now!) It was nice to see you on the 7pm show.ReplyDelete
I have had a Cricut Expression for ages, but that "baby" machine today was a great price, and with two cartridges too....Brill.
It is always great to get the tips you come up with. Last week I forgot how to centre point, don't know why but just went blank, after looking on your blog found how to do it, so thanks for that. Keep up the good work. Debbiexx
hi mel,hope create and craft gave you my email,about my criccut situation and that you will be able to solve the problem for us. sad about the bo bunny,stam show,wse looking forward to that. i saw it had gone missing from the program guide. i love all your lovely cards,its inspiring. i do a lot of crafting on my own. love bluebell-flowerwood.ReplyDelete
No they didnt give me your email. Please email me with the problem.
Hi Mel, I'm rather new to crafting with a cricut and I wonder if you or anybody else out there could tell me whether I would be Ok to cut self-adhesive sheets on my cricut or will I gum up the blade and ruin it? I have a mind to cut snowflakes and then glitter them!!!ReplyDelete
Yes you can. It cuts really well and you can always clean your blade after.
Let me see your snowflake when it is finished it sounds lovely.
Hello mel the shows were brilliant Iv'e eeven bought beads! I don't know what I will get up to next? I am so pleased you are doing a slice show I love mine and have completed projects with it must be enjoying it.ReplyDelete
Bye for now Anne x

Hi Mel, the JJ beads were gorgeous,have you any more shows planned for these beads? I love your dems. with the cricut and the cuttlebug you are so inspirational, I get so many ideas, I also love it when you don't gloss over mishaps but explain why they happen and what to do to prevent them from happening, you don't rush through dems, but explain things well for the everyday crafter to understand.Thanks Mel:)ReplyDelete
Oh yes! Lots of JJ shows to come"
How exciting. They really are beautiful.
Hi Mel,I just had to tell you how much I enjoy watching you on C&C. It is very difficult to get card making tutorials or classes in the West of Ireland so the internet is my best friend. I just got some money for my 50th birthday next week and I am considering buying a cricut. I make a lot of personalised cards to order and think I would make great use out of the cricut as using the metal dies is very slow and restrictive. I am thinking the larger cricut, the one with the electronic screen and the 12 x12 mat would be of most benefit to me. Can you advise me which would be best please? AS it is a big birthday!!!! my family have been very generous and I think this would be money well spent. I look forward to your advice. Thank you MargaretReplyDelete
Definitely the E2 as it is update able and future friendly. It takes a little getting used to but once you have learnt the icons it is a piece of cake.
Happy birthday for when it arrives.
Thanks for the information. I look forward to playing with it and hope I won't have you annoyed with questions.ReplyDelete
Hi Mel, Please can you help - am considering buying the Cricut Gold Deal from C&C but was wondering if you can tell me whether it will work with the Gypsy & Sketch Pens. Many Thanks, CherylReplyDelete
I have just ordered the cricut and looking forward to using it. I love using embossed dies and have resisted this machine as I was unsure about the cartridges. looking forward to ideas and inspiration from you Mel.
I've just updated cricut with cricut craft room, i've managed to cut with this but now my cricut create seems to have frozen? when I disconnect from the computer and try to use it normally it does nothing,it doesn't even recognise my cartridge and none of the buttons work. HELP.
I want you to email firstname.lastname@example.org. They will sort it out for you. Make sure you include you phone number in your email.
Let me know how you get on. Melanieheaton@netscape.net.
Thanks for the advice, I will let you know how it goes.
I have just joined the Cricut family by ordering the deal off C&C. However I cannot remember what setting you said to put the blade housing on I think it was 1. I have followed the manual and put it on 4 and the other settings I am sure you advised 5 for both (but again I could have got this wrong)and it teared the paper - I am still experimenting but any advice will be appreciated. I am already in love with the machine.
Hi Mel.Just bought the cricut on the Gold deal. You said in one of the clips that there is a way of cutting smaller than 1 inch. Could you tell me how to do this please? Thank you.ReplyDelete
Yes, you can either connect to the craftroom online, or you can cut the shape or the letter using the sign post feature. So apply the feature button, then press what you want and the Cricut will take the dial size and cut the post that size, which means that the shapes within will be smaller. Try setting the size to one and a half inches and cut a heart with sign feature on and you will see what I mean. XDelete
