No, do you sell sure cuts a lot? I thought I could talk about what I like since you talk about what you like. I didn't know this could only be about your opinion.

Madge, you must have an older version of Sure Cuts A Lot. The version that I have doesn't need inkscape, it converts to svg files on it's own. I think that it started doing that right before I bought it a year or so ago.

I personally don't use my cricut much, but I'm going to use it to make stencils and Christmas cards this year.

Do you think if you made a stencil on the scrapbooking cricut it would be ok to use with fondant or something just to trace?

Haha, no you can't because I'm wrong about that anyway. I checked,and it's just that you don't need to use svg files, it converts to a scal file without needing the svg format. See how often I use it.

ok so now I'm really confused (I am NOT very good with computers....)
I take it if you buy either of these software packages you don't have to buy additional criket cartridges? If you buy this software is it difficult to use? Do you need anything in addition to these?
now here is the stupid question of the day....how would one get the image from the computer into the criket? Tiggy? help icon_smile.gif

All you need is a USB cable from the computer to the cricut, at least with make the cut, I don't know anything about sure cuts alot except you needed inkscape I didn't want to mess with.

With Sure Cuts A Lot you use the USB cable too. You can either use inkscape and make svg files or get svg files from other places online.

Sure Cuts also has a "trace image" feature that you can use to make a SCAL file from pictures. You upload a picture from your computer and trace it, then it turns it into a SCAL file that you can send to the cricut using the usb connection. That obviously works best with simple outlines and solid shapes.

SCAL also has a bunch of fonts and basic shapes that are in the program that you can use, like hearts, squares, circles, etc. I assume that Makes The Cut has something similar.

You're right costume, make the cut also has basic shapes, fonts, etc. It's just a matter of preference. I believe you cand download a trial version of both and see what you like.

I can't find any of the real good deals on the Cricut cake that yall have. I have never seen one in operation so I too have been confused on how easy it would be to operate. I do okay with quizmos but I'm more of a push buttons til you get results or it blows up kind of girl. With the regular cricut cake can you make the images different sizes? Does it work well with fondant you roll out? I don't have the patience or cash to waste if it's not really gong to make life easier.
If you can't find time it do it right..how will you find time to do it over?
