  8. I had not the faintest idea what end caps were until I watched your video! Then I watched the monogram card video and now I want to find the one about tying bows!

    You need to put these on DVD and sell them!

    Thanks so much!!!

  18. Robyn, again all your videos are great. My SIL actually could have used this video a few months ago. I was over hanging out and she couldn't figure out why it wasn't lining up. turns out she had paper saver on. I think the first one worked b/c the tag is the same hight as the letters and the heart didn't work b/c the heart is actually taller than the letters.

    Keep the great vids coming. DS and I love watching you.

  28. Thank you! Thank you! I have never understood how to do this...until now! Cricut needs to pay you royalties or something!

    thanks!

  31. Thank you for doing these videos. I'm relatively new to the Cricut and your videos have helped so much.

  32. You are the bomb...thank you so much for helping and sharing with all of us...I can't tell you how much I have learned from your videos! One question, how do you keep your mats the right "stickiness"...I am having a huge problem with paper sticking too much, too little and also it seems that you are able to utilize the mats through many cuts, etc. I have a hard time with letters and getting smaller letters to come off. Any advice?

  33. This was fantastic. I had played for at least an hour with this feature at my sister-in-law's house one time. I gave up. After watching, I went to mine and made a thanks card with it right away. It turned out perfect on the first try. AWESOME! I too wake up every morning and check to see if there is a new video. I've learned so much from you. Thank you for all you do.

  34. Thanks a ton for the Cricut videos.
    I've had a Cricut for nearly a year and you just taught me how to use features that I never knew existed!
    Keep 'em coming!

  39. Robyn, you are the best! Thank you so much for making these "how to" videos. I've had my E for over a year and had no idea about the end cap button. Can't wait to use it!

    I hope you keep these videos on your blog for a while, I've watched them more than once, and will probably continue to do so until I get it. ;)

  40. thanks for another great video. I think I tried the endcaps when I first got my Cricut but it didn't make enough sense to come out right.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Robin,

    Thanks so much for your great video tutorials. I learn so much. One thing I would like to see a turtorial on is how to make a border using the border option on some cartridges. Thanks again for all you do.

  49. I had spent most of Sunday afternoon and lots of paper trying to figure out "end caps" before watching your video. Now it is perfectly clear. Thanks so much from a new owner of a Cricut! Sue

  50. hi there Robyn, I just wanted to let you know that I had been making a scrapbook page for weeks now. Adding bits and pieces here and there to come up with the PERFECT LO because it is my wedding pictures and very special to me. I needed a header and could not find the perfect one until I saw how to do the heart tag! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I finished my page tonight and it looks so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks for making that video. This is awesome. though I understand how to use EndCaps, I never thought of the trick of using "repeat last." We always learn something!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Robyn!! I loooove youuuuuu!! You are soooo helpful. This cart came with my cricut when I bought it and never used it much because I didn't know how to use the end caps!! Oh! thanks so much

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh thank goodness. This is the best information. I can't wait to be able to get your video!! I'm a new cricut user and these tutorials are the bomb. But I will so enjoy being able to watch them on my tv, pause, go back, all from my table!! YAY This is definitely goin on my birthday list.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your videos are great! I just bought my cricut expression and I am having so much fun. The handbooks are a little fuzzy in places though and I couldn't remember where I saw those end tag instructions. Thanks so much for making it plain.

    Also - I love that you mat looks like you really use it! i was worried when I cut into my mat the first time. Did you mention re-sticking your mat? How did you do that?

  57. Robyn,

    Thanks so much for this video. I was trying to get an endcap with the two stars at the ends for a layout for my son--and I tried for an hour could NOT figure out how to get the second part--the right side of the endcap--correct. It said rectangle, or something other than star, so I kept thinking that was wrong! :) Thanks so much--after some frustration, I decided to check here at your blog because I had watched other Cricut videos here--and sure enough--there was one on endcaps! I appreciate it! Keep up the great work--it is such a help!

  58. Is the Plantin Schoolbook the only cartridge with endcaps?

    I thought I knew all about my Cricut Expressions and then I saw your videos. I wasn't even aware of many other uses. I will be referring my mother to your website.

  59. First comment ever! I just tried this and it worked. I didn't even know this cartridge could do this. Thank you so much Robyn. Love your videos! You are a Star! Angela

  60. Thanks. I figured you would have something about this. I just got a Cricut and was reading about this, but did not understand. Moving on :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. OH my goodness...I love watching your videos! I watched 1-10 before I even got my Cricut out of the box, but they helped me so much to understand what I was doing! Thanks for helping me be productive!!

    Hi Robyn

    I just came across your channel last night, and boy am I glad I did! My Cricut and I have SO not been the best of friends for ages now, because I'm afraid the books that come with the cartridges aren't all that easy to follow (for me anyway). An example of this is the TAGLEFT and TAGRIGHT instructions - the book doesn't say how to achieve this (ie, hitting the tag key at the bottom right of the keyboard). If I hadn't seen your video about making the End Caps tag, I'd have probably blown up my Cricut before much longer, out of sheer frustration!!!! What can I say but THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU for translating the Cricut instructions into plain English! :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Brilliant videos - they make so much sense!
    Please can you show us how to use the end caps functions on the Cricut Craft Room and the Imagine? Can't find any information anywhere
    thanks

  64. Thank you so much for this tutorial on the end cap feature. I own about 8 carts and need to make MANY bookmarks, maybe about 100, and didn't have a clue how I'd be able to use my Cricut. Not only did I have a cart to use for it, but directions from top to bottom to make a beautiful one for a women's banquet. Many thanks.
