Hello everyone and Welcome to the November Cut RAK!

This is a great opportunity to get cuts off of cartridges you don't have! Sometimes we would like a couple of cuts off a cart. and don't want to buy it just for those few cuts, so this way we can get them! Or to get a few cuts off a newly released cart and see if you think you might want it! Anyone can join, just post your wishes and grant some to others off of cartridges you have! Please try to send them in a timely manner and if you have any questions about the cuts ask the wisher! Here are a few guidelines for our cut RAK:

Each person is allowed 5 wishes per month. Let's keep it at Cricut cuts. When putting your wishes please include:
1. what cartridge it is from (specify if it is a CCR or Imagine cart)
2. which cut (s) you want
3. the size you would like the cut
4. Color preferences if you have any

When someone grants a wish you requested, PLEASE go back to your original post, click EDIT at the top and mark the wish as GRANTED. This saves a lot of confusion as the month goes on and more people are wishing and granting! Also pm your mailing address to the grantor.

Please remember Imagine cuts use lots of ink, so keep that in mind as you ask for your wishes!

If you are asking for a lot of cuts from one cartridge, maybe break it up into a couple of wishes, or don't be surprised if the granter only says they will cut a few of them. I think 4 or 5 cuts per wish is a reasonable request if you want more than that from one cartridge, please break them up into multiple wishes.

For each month we offer an incentive RAK too. At the end of the month I will randomly pick one post number and send a small RAK to whoever did that post. So be sure to post your 5 wishes, post to grant wishes to others, check back often to see if there are more wishes you can grant, and post Thank-yous to those who sent you cuts! The more posts you have the better your chances of winning the incentive RAK at the end of the month! If anyone has any questions, please pm me or post them here on this thread!

If you have not completed cuts you promised from the previous month, please contact the person you are cutting them for with an update and complete them before posting your new wishes or granting cuts for this month! If someone has granted you cuts but you haven't heard back from them or received the cuts within a couple weeks, send them a pm to remind them. We all get busy and sometimes forget!! If you still don't receive your cuts or a response from the grantor, please pm me.

Have fun and try to offer cuts to others as well as asking for your own cuts!! Please try to do the cuts you offer in a timely manner! And don't send cuts to others that you wouldn't want to use yourself!

I know that I fell of the board several months ago. I apologize to anyone I did not send cuts to. Please message me with anything I owe you and I will get it off promptly. I will not get into the details, but my husband has encouraged me to unpack my crafting items and start taking time for myself again. Again, I am so sorry. I will only grant cuts in November and December, not request any.

P.S. I can do your Create a Friend. Do you want the kids features the same color as the book, or something more specific? Please also PM me your address again.

I am having a horrible time cutting images out tonight. I wasted 4 sheets of cardstock just trying to cut out 5 teddy bears and its Bee parts in the past 7 hours. I switched blades 3 times and still ended up having to hand trim everything! The last time I cut (the ears and nose parts), I put it on 'custom' in CCR and it not only cut thru the cardstock..but also thru the mat. From one extreme to another Cursing But at least I got P.S.'s 5 honey bee bears done. Might take me a week to get the other images cut.

CricutNat-sounds like you had a great memory making month!! You must have a ton of pics to scrapbook now!

Joyce, I can't imagine what is wrong with your cricut...cutting through the mat even!! Never heard of one doing that before! Have you tried calling support to see if they have sugestions on what might need adjusted? Hope you can get it figured out soon.

Jen, have you heard anything from GodotsGirl lately? Is she home yet?

I have not heard anything this week I will be contacting her husband later today to see how she is doing. My guess is that she is still in the hospital. Since her platelets were acting up. They will have to get them stable before she could go any where.


I will post if I hear anything.

I feel your pain. I am doing Baby Steps cuts and ran out of flesh colored paper. I have found an "acceptable" substitute at my LSS. But on the bright side my Cricut his cutting nicely...knock wood.

Hello Joyce, I hope you get it figured out. I wanted to mention that the last 2-3 packs of replacement blades I've bought for my Cricut Exp I've had to throw away one from each package. It's like it was dull right from the package. It can be frustrating when you put in a "fresh" blade and it's tearing up all your papers.
Take care,
Charlene

Hi all. I was very busy today and just got home a few minutes ago so I didn't have the time to contact GG's husband. But I will tomorrow and let you know when I hear anything.

I found out at about 5 pm that I was elected to the city counsel and I signed up as a demo for Pampered Chef last week so I am a busy person so I am not sure when I will be able to cut anything for a little while so I have to get my 7 jobs fit into my Schedule. You can tell how boring my life is if I can have 7 jobs. LOL!!!

I will watch and see if there is something I can cut when I get a few days to relax.

I haven't called them yet. Gonna wait til I work with it some more with this last blade and keep adjusting. But I won't be making full mats to cut until I get it right. I will just use scraps. I had a tension headache all day today and I know its from being so frustrated at my cricut last night. So I didn't play with it today.

Not sure which is worse..tearing the paper or not cutting it at all. Both are frustrating but at least when the paper is tearing, I know right away that its a crappy blade. I am wondering if the 2 blades that I used were scoring blades. They were really sharp so I wouldn't think they are just for scoring..shoot, not even sure there are scoring blades for the cricuts. The package says replacement blades and is the older ones in the pale pink package and the red rubber tips protecting the blade.
