Hi Tiffany ! Glad you checked in. How's the baby ? I am sure by now she is a toddler, but they're always babies to us! (Moms)
Kenya, I will play along on the Cricut Christmas card challenge. CCCC, that's a lot of C's !!
I don't remember where you posted it the last couple years, but maybe if you post it in the reg challenge section, we will get more participants ?? This thread is a bit "dusty" lately as there isn't many visitors!!
Have you not tried the PC CCR program yet? I have all my carts linked through there and it is fantastic, no diggin for carts or switching them out when cutting designs- I love it !
Oh wait.... Kenya said something about using "credits" - I assumed that meant credits to Cricut.com-
And not the reward "points" .
I have a bit over 4000 pts to use, so I need to know if those expire??
So Kenya, which were you referring to?
If it is the rewards pts, I really don't know if it matters, there's nothing on there to spend my points on anyway!!
Although, I haven't checked lately, I should go do that now!
I am forcing myself to use it more. Last weekend I used my Pagoda cart for a nice layout.
Loved the way it turned out. I did 4 different items and I did them in Grey and Silver so they were more graphic than normal. Love love love the way it turned out. I am promising to use it more. I have to stay away from too many new carts. I have too many I have not used.
I seem to use more carts since I jumped into Cricut Craft Room. Its so easy to go from one cart to another that I really am tapping into my cartridge collection more. I have a small collection next to most (maybe 16 or 17 carts) and so many have never been used but with CCR I'm starting to use more and more of them.
When I need fonts I take 5 minutes and check out all the carts for different fonts and have recently used some that previously sat on the shelf in the boxes for years.
I have used the CCR several times in the past, but after getting laptop with W8, the E2 doesn't cut from it consistently and I haven't tried the mini. I don't want to link all of the carts so I guess that is why I haven't used CCR for a while. This was another reason why I didn't use the Gypsy all the time. BTW, I got the black screen of death on that...sigh!
It might be a good idea to make some cuts from the other machines just to make sure the work properly.
Why have you not been using your machines?
Sorry about your Gypsy- the dreaded black screen.
I had trouble updating mine the last time, never was able to, so I just left it. I don't use it anymore since having my Mini connected to the computer and CCR. I am all linked and love it!
Will definitely keep you in mind. Have to see if I have everything that goes with it first. Won't be home for a while though. We are in Hawaii and will be popping in at home for a few days before the end of the year then off for 4 more months.
