I noticed that I'm not able to cut the phrases on this cartridge. I get a message about "option not available." I have the original Cricut. Am I doing something wrong or is it because of my machine? I'm really disgusted that I spent so much on this cartridge and I can't use all the options. I can cut intricate phrases with other cartridges, like Paper Lace. Any suggestions?

Dianne - I don't have that cart, but I went out to look at it and I am seeing that as long as you are not hitting the SHIFT key when you show the cut you want to make (phrase), your phrase should cut.

Will that help? If this is the problem, it will help you to look at your booklets (if you have them) or "view" the "information" tab out at Cricut.com to see when you use SHIFT and when you don't use SHIFT.

On each cut, anything on the LEFT or bottom left (of each section of different functions) is called up without SHIFT. Anything on the RIGHT or upper right in each section is called up by using the SHIFT key.

If this isn't the information you needed, please comment again, so we know you still need help. OR, if it does help, come back and let us know your problems is solved.

well I finally went and had a look at that cartridge. It appears that the shift for phrase shadow shows unavailable but the other shadow on the page is exactly the same and it does work. I hope this makes sense. It always amazes me that this kind of stuff makes it to production.

BigGrin Char thank you so much!!! That was my problem, I was trying to cut the phrase larger, so I was trying to cut the shadow one with the shift key. I just checked and cut out a phrase. I can get back to making decorations for the marching band fundraiser!!!
