Can you create any image /font on your computer and then send it to the cricut to cut it out?? Say images from print shop or something similiar. I just bought the expression on Ebay for only $192.

thanks for your help




Scal is a fabulous program that opens up a whole world of possibilities. The cartridges are great for ease of use. You can use inkscape to create your own custom files to use in scal or there are tons of free files for your scal program already made for you. If you check out my blog I have a few files on there and links to other blogs with files!!!

They are different sizes. I got the $99 one this past week. Works great. I used Satin Ice and did let it sit some before cutting. Just takes trial and error.

I found this chart that explains the differences in ALL the different machines out there! I am leaning toward the Silhouette SD as it will take a SD Memory card to copy files from the computer, that way you can move files around and not have to be connected to the computer to use it. AND it does not have cartridges....just uses things off your computer...love that option. http://www.silhouettemachine.com/default.aspx

One site I found shows that ALL the machines are basically made by the same manufacturer! Have been watching Ebay to see what kind of prices I can find on all of the different brands....some used some new.... prices vary a lot.

I watched the thread and now I'm hooked. I've got the Cricut Original which uses the 12"x6" cutting mat. The only thing I'm concerned about, if I use the Cricut for cutting cake decorations, will I need to make my Cricut dedicated for cake decorating purposes only? Folks that use pasta machines for rolling out Sculpey have to make the machine dedicated for Sculpey use only since it is not food safe and will contaminate the machine. I will buy a new cutting mat and cutting blade but will this make the cutouts food safe? I'm always worried about food safety.

Thanks for any help!
