I have to cut 150 leaves on my Cricut to use on my SIL's wedding invitations. Is there an easy way to fill the page with the same cut without having to type what I want in 150 times?

Ah, ok... thanks! Long ago, before I had a Cricut, the lady at the lss cut out 50 "s" for me and she did some cool function to do it. I'm hoping someone else knows this function, too.

My Expression has "Auto Fill"...I think that's the right one. That will cut as many of the shape that will fit on the page. Not sure if the smaller bug has that option too.

Do you have the baby bug or the Expression?

On the expression there is a button that says "quantity". I'm assuming that you could press this button and then enter the number of that item you want to cut.

On the baby bug, the only thing I can think of is to enter the leaf shape like 10 items, let it cut those 10 items and then press "repeat last" and it will cut 10 more. So you would still have to do that 15 times..but it would be easier that entering 150 individual leaves, KWIM??

I got it to work!!! I got to cut out 35 of the leaves on one sheet. I punched in what I wanted then hit "auto fill"!!! Thank you for the advice, ladies. It saved me a lot of time.

Hi, If you have a quantity button( on left side) hit that and the + up to 75 or if you don't have the quantity button you can just keep hitting REPEAT LAST The quantity button is great it will fill the page and stop, so if you need to put more paper it will start again. I hope this helped. Linda

I second the Autofill option. When you switch the paper out for the next sheet, just hit repeat last and you're good to go. I just did something similar with hearts for a Valentine's Day project at church and that's what I did.
