Print and Cut Alignment Troubleshooting Guide

Anyone having trouble with some white space around your images for print and cut with Make The Cut?  Here is a detailed checklist on how to align and adjust your printer and/or your Cricut.

Enjoy! …. and lets see your projects!

All Bundled Up – print and cut card

Make The Cut Print and Cut card. I inked the card with Tim Holtz Fired brick, then added my cuts. I double-layered the front piece with pop-dots and did a combo on the inside.

Quick paper bag mini album & print and cut

30 minute mini-scrapbook / paperbag book I made yesterday during a lull in work training. Shows an example of my Imagine-type print and cut with the new Make The Cut update

Gatefold cards

I made these today during the downtime for my work training.  They are very easy and only take a few minutes each.

Cut a 8.5 x 5.5 piece of cardstock.  With the long side horizontal, score vertical lines at 2 1/8″ from the left and from the right.  Fold panels inward to create your “gate”.

Inside:  Cut a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 piece of coordinating cardstock.  Cut another piece of white/off white at 3 5/x 4 7/8.  Adhere white to dark, then adhere to the inside center of the card. (see pics)

Add embellishments.  For the front, tape only the left or the right half of the embellishment to either side of the gate (so that the card is not sealed shut)

Add embellishments inside and out.  For more punch, add a piece of coordinating cardstock to the envelope, too. 


Mini Notebooks

I really enjoy making these mini notebooks. They contain approx. 50 of the 3 x 5 index cards. Great to keep in your purse or backpack. They even look nice on a desk. 50 ea 3 x 5 notecards, 2 3.5 x 5.5 chipboard. Cover chipboard. Add embellies, bind, add ribbon and that’s it! More pics on my facebook page.

Hearts Together Cut file

Heart Card

This works best with 2-sided paper, but you can paste together, too.

Click here for the file – It is in MTC or SVG format

Score each 1/2 heart where it meets the square and fold to back

Score at two inches in from FOLDED line of heart/the same place as the square starts on both sides

This should give you a 4″ middle for your sentiment

Print and cut your embellishments with your printer and Make The Cut or add a pre-made embellishment to the front.

Simple Fall Card

This is the “Simple Fall Card” I did today for the Make The Cut forum Cyber Crop. Come over and join us, its going on all weekend.

This was made with the “creepy bare tree” file from user 731, and a bunch of different-sized circles. I added a piece of cardstock to the front of the card, glued everything on and added some skittles for a bit of bling.
