CRICUT (SCAL) SOFTWARE NEWS: SCAL3 is NOT compatible with the Cricut

As expected, SCAL3 is NOT compatible with the Cricut… ProvoCraft (maker of the Cricut) is starting much the same nonsense with CraftEdge (maker of Sure Cuts A Lot) as they did with the Make-the-Cut maker!!

In my opinion, ProvoCraft shouldย recognize that the makers of SCAL and MTC have allowed ProvoCraft to sell more Cricuts – I would have never boughtย a Cricutย if there wasn’t software out there that made it so we didn’t have to buy a bunch of expensive cartridges!!

At least I have past versions of both software titles’ installation files backed up on my pc – they can’t take away MY freedom ๐Ÿ™‚

Hereโ€™s the scoop on SCAL: http://www.svgcuts.com/blog/2011/04/16/sure-cuts-a-lot-3/ย (this page includes a good list of machines that do work with SCAL – if my Cricut ever breaks, I’ll definitely be switching the type of machine I’m using. ProvoCraft is really making a big mistake!!) Here’s a cool podcast from SVGCuts that talks about a couple of other cutting machines: http://www.svgcuts.com/blog/2011/04/22/black-cat-pazzle-penny-duncan/ย 

Hereโ€™s the scoop on MTC (my thoughts and a link to more info on the MTC forum): ย http://cuttingcrazy.wordpress.com/2011/04/03/mtc-news-make-the-cut-is-no-longer-compatible-with-the-cricut/

FREE SVG File – 2 Torn Edge (Deckled) Rectangles

Torn-Edge-Rectangle-JPG

Here are two sets of nested torn-edge (deckled) rectangles for you to use as labels or backgrounds for all your pics and paper-piecings. Just click “break apart” or “ungroup” (in SCAL2 anyway) and choose which rectangle(s) you want to use and remove the rest.

I made these from photos of some homemade cards that had sentiments inside that were printed on vellum, then torn out and inked. One is from the wedding card that i uploaded pics of back in February and one is from a birthday card i just made. Enjoy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

MTC News – Make The Cut is no longer compatible with the Cricut

For all you Cricut-eers out there who are enjoying using MTC on your Cricuts, you might not want to take any more updates for the software. Or else… your Cricut will not work with the new version. Click here to learn more.

For those who really enjoy MTC no matter what machine they have to use, check out this new monster of a personal cutter: Black Cat Couger.

I can’t guarantee that any machine other than the Cricut will work with SVG files though. And, as far as i can tell, Sure Cuts A Lot 2 (by CraftEdge) still works with the Cricut. But, I’m not sure if they will have to follow along with MTC someday – so watch out, and always keep past versions’ installation files for your favorite software saved to disc, just in case the next version no longer works with your favorite cutting machine.

Best wishes & happy crafting,
Vickie ๐Ÿ™‚
