1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cricut Expressions - Can you use your own images? on: December 31, 2008 12:45:59 AM
You can draw with the cricut by replacing the blade with a specially designed to fit pen which come in a variety of colours. I assume if you draw you can then replace the blade, reload the paper and cut the same image with the blade. The machine is basically a plotter with a blade as standard instead of a pen.

I don't have any pens for mine yet but I only got my cricut this Christmas. They are certainly on the list of things I would like to have though.

Have just got the demo of Sure cuts a lot (SCAL) and am certain I shall be buying that before too long. I use a Mac so will be able to create cutting files in illustrator to cut out on it. Have had a quick play so far and am pretty excited about it.

I have exactly that fabric in my stash from my local Ikea that was bought specifically to make a bag just like that.

I'm gonna have to get my sewing machine out aren't I?

You've done a great job by the way.

Hope you don't mind. Just had to send the link for this to Top Gear. I just hope I haven't broken any rules in doing so.

Very sorry if I have.

Great job.

A good tip for learning to ride a bike that you might try. This worked a treat with my son, who we had been trying to get riding without stabilisers (training wheels?) for two or three years.

Take the pedals and trainer wheels off the bike and let him scoot about on the bike to get used to the balance. When we tried this with our boy he was riding the bike with the pedals back on in 20 minutes. Amazing.

They're lovely.

A tip for the floppy ones. Coat them with a layer or two of clear nail varnish. That will help to stiffen them up. It also will stop any knots in the thread from coming undone too.

I've had this before with the loopy stitching and asked my Mother's DH as he used to work in a sewing machine shop servicing machines. He's a pretty nifty seamster too. He said it was a tension issue, although I cannot for the life of me remember how or how much I adjusted the tension to combat the problem.

I love the bag. What a fantastic idea. And no doubt incredibly tough and durable too.

That's a lovely colour, I think the lace is tape and needlelace rather than crochet though. Very pretty.
