My Cricut Success with Gumpaste

post #1 of 129
Thread Starter 
Ok so I bought the cricut yesterday and used it with gumpaste today and it worked. I rolled the gumpaste to a 9 on my pasta machine. Now I wish I had more than one cartridge. Here's a picture of my testing today.

Sweet! I am so getting one. I don't care much for the price of the cartridges though.

Wow that is so cool - did you let the gumpste dry first - or better yet how did you do it?

Thanks

Yes, please, more detail! My husband is looking at getting me one for my Birthday next week but I was concerned about how it would work with gum paste. What a success. Which model did you buy? Where did you get it? Thank you for sharing, and great timing for me.

I got the small machine for $99 at Michaels. I have found the cartridges are best priced on ebay. I am bidding on a few and will do buy it now on a few. Better prices than at the craft stores and larger selection. I got that other program too but haven't used it yet. Have to play with it. I put the gumpaste through my pasta machine to the thinnest setting. I have the blade on 4, the pressure on 1 and the speed on 4. After I rolled it out I stuck it on the mat that I took all the sticky off of. I used a thin layer of crisco to stick it down. Put it in the machine and cut away.

I got the Cricut this past Christmas, and I haven't had a chance to try it with the gumpaste yet but i have several cartridges... Thanks for posting this!! There's a system you can buy online- i believe it's called like cut anything or something, it shows up on ebay when you search for cricut. It's like 80$ but once you buy it you can do any pics you can find online or the cartridges without having to buy each individual cartridge.

Sure Cuts Alot!!!!! The Best thing that I have found for cartridges! Well with SCAL you dont need the cartridges anymore maybe for somethings if you just want them but for fonts this program is the best buy! It's $75.00 but while worth it! I got it and I love it cause it uses all the fonts on you computer and other things you should check out the Web-site! But you did a Awsome job! Really check out the site! (hobby Lobby has cartridges this week 2/$89.99) not bad but you can check out Customcrafts.com for cartridges to! good deals there!

I got it about 4 days ago and there are so many things you can do withit! I am still learning somethings about the program but you should check out svgcuts.com great web-site to help you use the programs he has some awesome videos!

- The web-site for great deals on cartridges is customcrops.com not customcrafts.com sorry for the mix up! -
