Cricut ladies, you do know using anything kind of spray to re-stick your mats is a void of any and all warranties with your cricut machines. The adhesive sprays can damage the inner parts of your machines. Thats why I only use baby wipes, and they do work. I know some say that the mats are too expensive to replace, but 2 mats for $10 isn't that bad. The Scan N Cut just cost me 19.99 for 1 mat. I'd rather buy cricut mats any time.

Mary

Wow, I was typing in my dark back yard and really couldn't see that well. What I meant to say was that my husband ordered a sloo of new blades for my Cricut Imagine and I just received them Friday. So now I hope that I will be able to get a clean cut finally!

Mary, my machine is so old it has no warranty on it plus I haven't had any problems.

Yay! I got my Imagine to work ! It worked great with the new blade but now I can't get the blade to calibrate. It runs the printed part of the blade calibration but the cutting never happens. I'm so close to getting all my ducks in a row with this machine. Once I master this I will conquer my Silhouette Cameo .

Daria, be careful because it can do damage to the inner parts of the machine. I did receive your card on Friday, thank you, it is beautiful. I love the way you used the butterfly die.

Live4paper,

It sounds like you need a new mat. The imagine mats can be used in any of the other cricut machines but, the imagine has to use only the imagine mats. The imagine reads the mats by the black lines all around the sides, make sure there is no ink or spray adhesive on those black lines.

Oh my, I didn't know how bad i was til I read your lists!

I have:

Original Cricut
green cuttlebug
Cinch
Expressions--sold it
Expressions2
Grand caliber
Silhouette Cameo
Anna G. gold cuttlebug
Fiskars fuse
Big Shot
The new Evolution--haven't used it yet
Ebosser--from Hsn, not arrived yet.

I love love love my Silhouette Cameo! Have not used my Expression2 since I bought this. I am lucky enough to live in a place that has a teacher that does classes every month and teaches us new things we can do with it. Have been going to her classes for over a year and learn so much from her.

Do I have an over load of embossing machines, does Carters have liver pills? (Thats for you oldies out there that remember when your mothers had them in the medicine cabinet) Yess and I like them all except I have never used the Fuse as its too big for me to handle and the letter press dies are too expensive. My dh bought this for me.
I need to sell it .
I need to get rid of some of the other embossers to but want to keep the big shot, the evolution and the Ebosser. my dh bought me the evolution just a month ago and were waiting for hsn to get the motor for it and then I saw the ebosser after we bought that and wish I had got it and decided rather than waiting for a good price for the motor to come out I would buy one built in. So will keep three and try to sell three. Maybe with the money I could almost get the Brother scan and cut. It sounds good but just don't quite understand how it works.
