How to make the most......

of the Cricut Designer Series Software. I love to use my Paper Dolls & Mickey cartridges but they seem to take forever because of all the layering. One thing that I found with the new software is that I can create on my computer, put everything in place on the mat and then cut everything out at one time!! Here is how I placed my paper and how I cut a Mickey. Hope this helps anyone who might be confused.

  2. That is exactly how I do it but you make me jealous of the larger mat....but I must remain content and patient for a few more years

  3. When I get Big I want to be just like YOU! I could never, in a million years, figure that out. I just received the small Cricut for Christmas and will have to be happy with that for a long time. Great job!

  6. First off: CUTE BABY!
    Second: THAT ease of cutting colours and pieces makes the software WORTH IT! I agree, the time involved with all the layering is the only less fun part of the bug...now, you've shared with us all your genius solution! Thanks!!

  9. You know, will all the paper that you used, you could have made at least one other Mickey. What is the point of having a bunch of little paper scraps, instead you could have another Mickey. LOL I just love this idea. I would love to try it, if only I stopped spending so much time posting files for other and concentrated on actually scrapping with those files.
