Hello All,
I have a Cricut Expression 2 and I have no idea what Im doing. I was wondering how do I use multiple sheets of paper on one mat at the same time.

When you place your images on the mat/screen, look to see where the image is and cut your paper in the colors you want and place them in the corresponding location.

Hi, I don't have an E2 so maybe I'm just clueless about this, but ... I do this with my E, but I have to use my Gypsy (or DS) to do this. Can you do this on the E2 without a Gypsy?

Yes, the E2 has a touchscreen that shows the mat like CCR, a gypsy and DS.

Yes you can. Wherever the image is on the screen you put the color paper you want for that image in that position on the mat.

I just want to add that if all your colors are on different layers, you will have to cut them one at a time. All the images on one layer will cut at one time, but if you have two or more layers, you can pause the machine -- when it stops cutting it asks if you want to return to your project or not -- and go back to the mat view and change it to the next layer that needs to be cut. You'll have to do this with each layer.

This is how I do it. Of course, I'm on meds, so take it for what it's worthBlushing

HTH
:)
P.S. There's a video on Youtube that shows this. If I can find it fast, I'll post a link.

Found it!

I was doing a bunch of cuts from the Create a Critter cartridge and this is what my mat looked like.

Each square on the mat is 1 inch, so you just cut the paper to be the size of your image and place it on the mat. I have an E2 machine and use the free Cricut Craft Room software almost exclusively. It's easier to manipulate images (resize, move on the virtual mat etc).
