Does anyone have this cartridge? I HATE the ones that don't come with any instructions. Apparently anyone should be able to figure them out, but I'm stumped. Do you use 6x12 paper? And are you supposed to set the size or does it automatically cut for cards? It doesn't tell anything - not even what size cards it's supposed to be cutting. (Or am I just having a dumb night?)

I just ordered this cartridge, this is good to know that it does not come with instructions. I hope I enjoy it. I am going to do a little research on it, I will let you know what I figure out.

I'm having the same problem with the pop-up cards cartridge. No instructions whatsoever. So frustrating, I wish I could help you.

My comment to Cricut would be to consider how a new Cricut user would feel if they opened up some of these newer cartridges and were faced with the frustration of trying to figure out what to do. My guess is they would think twice before buying another one.

I would go on the Cricut message board and ask there. You can find message boards on the Cricut site and there's boards all over the place on Facebook.

Alissa.. those are good ideas. But I agree with Ms. Welch... pretty hard when you are a new user and the cart. comes with no instructions. Not very inviting to new users. Thank goodness for this site... so many helpful users and plenty of great advice.

I love this site but I have found that it's not THE best place for Cricut help. Other places that eat, breathe, and sleep Cricut are better for pointing out tutorials, videos, and specific-to-cart information.

dwelch, send me a pm if you need help finding Cricut message boards

On the Cricut Board there aren't any postings about this cartridge yet. They usually have a topic for each cartridge. I'll post a question there though. Thanks for the suggestion.

Dwelch, you should be able to get cricut help anywhere, not just cricut board. I have heard of this cart and have seen several people demoing it. http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com used it recently. Create with Kimber worked with it too! Kimber did a video on this cartridge that is on youtube. Do a search there and you'll find her and others working with it. The Cricut board isn't what it use to be, so you are right to check other resources. Hallmark Scrapbooking still working with the carts. as well. On the Cricut board more than likely Scraplette will be happy to answer your questions good luck. Provo Craft as a new CEO and a lot of things are changing! Not necessarily for the better.

New Cricut carts By Tinadn

I made the sunburst card with this cart. It's about 4x6. I don't remember what size setting I had it on since I was just playing around but was thinking 4. I do remember that I didn't change the size for the chevron card from a different cart and they came out different sizes.
