    Default Cricut create question

    So I was reading the big lots thread and saw Charys? mention the flip feature. I just have the normal cricut so I'm not familiar with that. Does that mean you could do fonts in a mirror image?

    I have a nice picture of Karl looking in the mirror and it would be cool to do a play on "Mirror Mirror on the Wall (who's the fairest of them all)" using mirror images of the words.

    Now that I have this typed out, I think I could just cut my letters normal and flip them. DUH!

    See, that's the main reason I wanted the Create. BUT, we found Design Studio of $5 a while back at a local Wal-Mart, so I have to use that. But, I haven't told Randall that.

    YEP! I especially love the Flip feature when I want two images to face eachother. Like I'll cut one bird regularly and another on Flip feature. It's awesome! It also has Portrait (allows you to cut a bigger image than would normally fit on the mat), Fit to Page, Auto Fill (awesome for cutting as many of a certain image as you can on a size of paper) and Center Point. And of course the small Cricut only allows you to cut 1" as the smallest, but the Create can cut as little as 1/4". It's definitely worth it!

    oh and to answer your question, yes, you could cut the letter mirror image. That would make such a cute layout! The mirror image letters are good for cutting vinyl too.

    Where's the flip feature you are talking about?

    I'm planning on getting the expression on Friday and selling my Create. Does the expression do everything the Create does plus more?

    I read on the cricut MB that even though the Create lets you do portrait to cut bigger than 5.5" size, with some cuts, it can't go as big as the E b/c of the width of cut when it is in portrait due to the width of the mat being the limiting factor (if that makes sense)

    Yes Kebrina...the Expression does all of this too. Though I have yet to use any of those features. Ha!!

    On the far left-hand side of the machine. You will see them listed vertically. Let me know if you can't find them and I will snap a pic ok?

    Carrie, once you start playing with the creative features you will love them! The one thing I wish mine had that the Expressions does is the Fit to Length feature. Quite possibly the coolest feature ever. My friend just "discovered" this on her machine. You set your dial size to how long you want something cut. Then hit the object. For example, you want a dog on Paper Pups to be 3 inches long, so it fits in a certain part of a card you are doing. Dial your size to 3", then hit the Fit to Length feature, select object and it will automatically cut the object to that length. (the dial size usually works vertically, not horizontally which is what that creative feature allows.) Does that make sense?

    Glad you posted this thread cause I had no idea that the create was different. I thought there were only 2 cricuts. The reg size and the big E. So is that the only ifference between the create and the reg cricut???
