I love SCAL ♥

Post  katesacraftybugger on Mon Feb 07, 2011 11:32 am

Ijust wanted to say how much I love using SCAL2 with my cricut , it means i can cut any font in my computer , cut dingbats add mats and shadows easily to words and even cut from any image with the trace function .It took me a little while to get the hang of this but now i have got it -I think ! I draw the image first freehand ,scan into my pc and then open it in SCAL and then trace it -I think it will stop me wasting money on carts that i only use a few images from.
here are a couple i did this weekend -

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about SCAL as I few people have reported that it's caused problems with their cricut (think they might be working for provocraft!!) I have had a go on a friends SCAL version 1, and am now hooked can't wait to download SCAL2 hopefully tonight if I get chance!!
I may well be asking for help then!!!

Could we share SCUT files, or links to sites with good files on here?

Yes and yes to both your questions, I am happy for any files and links to be shared hence the separate sub category for SCAL. So that we can create a reference section and know where to go to look for answers and suggestions. I am also sure Amy at Aimitup will be happy to help with any SCAL questions as it is her area of expertise.

Fab job you have done Kate, love them both.

Probably the only way I know of at present is to upload your file to a media hosting site such as www.mediafire.com and then get link details and post the link details. I will however search for any other ways available.

I think this might be the only way as you can allow attachments for certain extensions but out cut files are not within those listed and also attachments eat into gallery space and storage. If anything else crops up I will let you know.

As I am new to all this, I'm sure most of you will know loads of sites for SVGs etc, but thought I would share my favourite anyway.

There is loads of great stuff on here, but my favourites have to be the shaplies (basically nesties!!)

Thanks for sharing Emma. Have you had a look at SVG cuts (cant remember the exact address) as they have a weekly (I think) freebie and then collections you can buy that aren't too expensive and they have a newsletter.

I'm having a nightmare trying to get SCAL2 to work, I've downloaded it, tried to activate it numerous times, and it just keeps crashing my computer before even launching the software!!! I'm doomed with all things cricut!!!

I seem to think that this is a known issue but cant remember where I read about it. Have you tried emailing Craft Edge Support [support@craftedge.com] for advice they respond quickly and are very helpful or you could try ScrappingTable.com [michelle@scrappingtable.com] Michelle is also very helpful and sells SCAL2, she wont appear as a guest deigner for us as all her help is through her website, she has even helped me perfect files when they wont cut correctly.

Yeah,,, sucess (of sorts!!)

I have managed to open it, and use it!!! But at the moment, it will only open if I open it while my laptop is still in the process of waking up after first logging on. If I wait, then it wont open, and still crashes the system!!!

I have no idea why, but at least I can get into it now!!!

Thanks for help, I have tried that several times, but still the same, am waiting for another reply from craftedge. At least it is now sort of working, and I can start playing. I was getting really frustrated yesterday at having paid the money, and still not being able to play!!!

I am now trying to get it to print as well, but it's not recognising the printer at the moment!! I will keep trying and keep you updated!

Well done Emma, what was the problem? It might be useful to others for you to tell what you have found and how to mend it. I am just like that I cant settle to anything else until I have resolved an issue! How about a bit of singing for the brownies you dont have to prepare for that!

Australia theme tonight at Brownies, so I used the Koala bear on Create A Critter cart and they made a Koala with a sticker on the back with the Auatralian promise on it. Anyway, that's a side track!! I'm not sure I know what I did, at the moment, I think there's a conflict between SCAl and another program, as I can only launch scal if I do it before the other program kicks in, and then the other program errors out. As for the printing, that was more down to me not having the printer plugged in!!!! Not sure anybody esle would be that stupid!!

Kate - your cards a fabulous - love them! (& I LOVE SCAL TOO!) I've used http://www.4shared.com to post and share my files in the past. I created SVGs all the time and shared them on my blog. Now I work full time and have no time to create from scratch!

Emma - glad your problem got resolved. I've played around a bit with Print & Cut and I am loving it so far! Good luck as you explore SCAL 2!

Someone mentioned SVG Cuts and I do have a link to their blog. They offer freebie SVGs about 1x a week and also offer wonderful collections. I am on their design team so I am a bit biased but I think their SVGs are the best!

Here is the link: http://svgcuts.com/blog/category/fsvgotw/
You can sign up and the notices come to your email in box - can't beat that!

Also--- I am giving away a $10 Gift Certificate to SVG Cuts...stop by my blog and leave a comment before 2/25.

Happy Crafting with SCAL!

Hi SCAL lovers

I have SCAL2 and I am wondering if somethign is possible and if it is how do I set about it! My eldest daughter is expecting and has chosen a nursery design called Ollie & Mollie which is/was produced by Next. There seems several photos on ebay for goods being sold and I am wondering if it is possible to create a cut file for Ollie & Mollie so I may use them in a mini-scrapbook I am creating for her. I am trying to create a mini-scrapbook of 'Peanut's Journey' for her to put all the bits in she wants about being pregnant right up to the birth of Peanut and want to give it her for her birthday on Monday - so time is not on my side!!! Please if anybody can help me can they tell me how to proceed if it is possible.
