CRICUT: Handbooks and subscriptions

Recently, Provocraft added a list of cartridges with links to the handbooks. You can find that list here:

You might want to bookmark that page, as so far I haven't found anywhere on the Cricut website that has a direct link to that page. They sure don't make it easy sometimes!

Not all of the cartridges are listed, so if you want a full list of cartridges (whether they have a handbook or not) you can find my list here: (Please click the "Join this Site" to become a follower if you find the list useful! Then I'll know whether to keep updating it.)

Also new on the Cricut website is a list of all the carts/images that are included in the Cricut Image Library Subscription. Again, it's hidden so here's the link:

I wanted to know which carts weren't included so I went through the list and came up with these carts:

CRICUT: Gypsy Linking

PC have advised that the Gypsy Linking process in Cricut Craft Room is currently not working.

They are working on fixing the problem but have not advised how long that might take.

If/When they post that it's fixed I'll update here.

CRICUT: Design Space - Using Hide Contour

Here's a quick demo on using the Hide Contour feature in Cricut Design Space.

I'm using the Berry basket image from the Spring Cottage cartridge and I'll be hiding the handle.

  • Add the shape to your canvas in Design Space and resize it
  • Click on the image to select it
  • Click the Ungroup button at the bottom of the Layers properties box

  • Click anywhere on the image to select it 

Don't drag a box around it or click Select All. 

If you do, the Detach option won't be available!

  • Right click on the image and select Detach from the drop down menu

If you click in the middle of the image the scoring layer will then be highlighted. 
Don't move this layer. Instead.....

  • Click on another part of the image (in this case I clicked on the handle) to select it again.

Again, don't drag a box around it or click Select All. 

If you do, the Contour option won't work!

  • Click the Contour button on the Layers properties box

The shape will turn blue with the edges a darker blue

  • Click anywhere on the handle. The outer edge of the handle will turn a light blue

  • Click any blank section of the canvas to deselect the image.

The handle will disappear. 

  • Drag a box around the image or click Select All
  • Right click and select Attach - or click the Attach button in the Layers properties box.  (You have to do this step so that the score lines are again attached to the main image.)

And that's it! Hope it helps.

Till next time!
