Randys_Girl79 (Cricut markers)

I found this on the Cricut website. WOW, there's a boatload of info on there! Those markers sound great!!! They made some awesome projects with them!

Here are some basic guidelines on how to draw with your Cricut machine:
1. Load marker into the black arms (right where you would usually place the green blade assembly).

2. Load paper. It is important that paper is lined up with the top right corner of the mat, and be sure you start your drawing there if you intend to cut the image out later.

3. Choose and draw the image(s) with the markers by pressing CUT. (Just as an added reference: type out the entire phrase all at once instead of individual letters.)

4. Once your Cricut is done drawing the image, switch out the marker for the blade assembly (without unloading your paper or turning off the machine).

5. Now press the Load Paper button. This will take you back to the beginning of the paper where you first started drawing.

6. Press the Repeat Last button. It will enter in the same characters that you have just drawn.

7. Press the CUT button. It will cut out the image directly over the color outline.

After this process you will have an awesome cut with a colorful outline! Hopefully this will clear up most of the confusion with the markers, but if you ever have any other questions on how to use them please contact us.

Where on the website are the samples of projects done with the markers? I can't find them anywhere.

Here's one of them. Their website is really slow right now for some reason, but I'll post a few more of the cool pages I found!

Thanks charys!!!
I will check out those links.

When I opened the gift from DH, I was like "OH WOW! Markers for my Cricut!" I didn't want to tell him that I didn't know what they were for b/c I didn't want him to feel bad. Thanks so much for finding the info for me!

Ok, I'm sold! There's a whole board dedicated to just the markers and now I've added them to my wish list. Biggrin It will probably have to wait until Mother's Day, but I can drool til then. haha
