Anyone know how to do really large vinyl projects using the cricut. I have the 12 x 24 mat and design studio. But, I want to know how to do larger projects than the 12 x 24 mat and piece them together. Any directions or vidoes out there?

Thanks for any help!

I posted just about the same question yesterday. We must both be on the same brain wave. The only thing I could figure out was to design it in pieces using my Gypsy. If you figure it out or get any ideas let me know. I want to do something big for my grand kids playroom.

Go to smartbuygal.com/forum if noone can help you here. I'm sure there will be a crafter over on that site that can help you or point you in the right direction.

Guess what Susan...I posted the same question over there and no one replied. I think it is a bit silly to keep posting for everyonee to jump over to that site as an answer to everyone's posts/questions.

You need to make a mark that you can overlap. So I would put a circle on both sides of the mat. Then when you cut the next part of the design you put a mark there that will line up.

The only reason I mention it is because nobody is answering their questions. The last two posts I made regarding going over to Kathy's place, somebody jumps in with an answer "only" after I make a comment. (Why couldn't have someone posted about the Car Decal cart before I posted-it had been 5 days; besides the original poster may have liked where I told her she could go to get the stick figures).

There is so much information that can't be discussed on this MB, which is fine. I'm just letting people know there is an alternative site to get answers or see what others are doing with their Cricuts. There's no reason why we can't go to a lot of different places to get inspiration or questions answered. People post to check our their blogs too, is that any different? It's up to that individual person to check the website out or not.

In these bad economic times, not a whole lot of us can afford to keep buying cartridges, and there is sooo much more we can do with our Cricuts with the internet. Why not utilize those sources. Is that a bad thing? The warranty expires after a year.

I'm glad that Ann Comer and The Busy Bug answered her. There are also two replies to your request over "there" too.

Anyway, I didn't respond to get a whole other nasty thread going with everyone on this forum. Just wanted to set the record straight on where I was going with my post here. I'm not a creative person, and I'm not ashamed to say that I take other people's projects, change them up and then make them my own, and if I can help someone, I will. Take care and have a great week!

Call it what you want but I find it quite helpful. These boards are not the only way to get desired info and right now everybody's loopy over the Imagine which I don't need info on. I come here specifically to be redirected because there are so many other talented people "out there" who are willing to share ideas/techniques and such; this board helps us find them! I very much appreciate those who take a moment to point the way.

Well this is not my post so I hope it's ok to respond. What I was trying to figure out is how to get say a cow for example to cut at say 50 x 50. In other words bigger than the biggest mat. I'm thinking I could just design it in half on the Gypsy and cut it in 2 pieces. Someone suggested something about overlaying the design. My thought was to put a very large design on a back wall of the grandkids play area. Most designs I've seen so far have just been as big as the 12x24 mat.

Actually there is another post that was posted today where someone made a large tree for a nursery. It's perfect and big, big , big. She even tells how she did it. Good luck. Seems sort of haard but I'm confident I can do it with a little thought.
