    Ok, as much as I love my Silhouette, these Disney cartridges give me Cricut envy.

    Yeah, I saw this about 3 weeks ago on the Cricut boards. I believe it's going to be released in at the beginning of March.

    I will defintely be purchasing the Pooh cartridge with all the characters on it, but to be honest I'm not all that excited about the Pooh Font. I can use one of my other fonts and be just as happy and I'm not much of a fan of the "Disney Baby" characters.

    Hopefully the next Disney cartridge they plan to release after Pooh will be either a Disney/Pixar one or.... one with characters from movies more suited for boys like Peter Pan! They are long overdue getting us a Tinkerbell!

    The only systems out there that will let you cut the Disney font is an electronic die cutter. This requires a computer to operate. Some electronic die cutters are:

    Wishblade - SRP: $449.99
    Silhouette - SRP: $369.99

    Those two are the most popular, but there is also:
    Pazzles Creative Cutter
    Klic-n-kut
    Craft Robo
    There may be one or two more, but I am blanking on what they are called at the moment.

    All these die cutters work with Windows based computers (though some have issues with Vista). Currently none are designed to work with a MAC (it's a conspiracy I tell you...but that is another thread.) but by installing patches and usually Adobe Illustrator will make it work.

    The advantages of the electronic die cutters is you don’t have to buy anything discs or cartridges to get new fonts or images. The die cutters will cut just about any font installed on your computer or found on the internet. It will also cut images…each machine is different on what type of image file it will cut.

    The disadvantages are cost for one…these little buggers are not cheap! They are also not the best at portability, since they need a computer to work.

    IMHO if you were to invest in a electronic die cutter your best bet is the Silhouette. QuicKutz customer service is awesome and it seems to be the easiest to use.

    A much cheaper option to get titles created with the Disney font is to print it out on cardstock and cut it out by hand…it’s a lot more work though.

    I hope this helps!

    Cutting out Disney Fonts on a Cricut

    There is a piece of software called Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL for short) that will cut all your true type fonts out on your cricut. I've done the Walt script and it worked great. Same with the Minnie font. No need to get the Mickey Font cartridge from Provo Craft. Check out Craft Edge: Scrapbook Software to Cut True Type Fonts and Shapes with Cricut for more info.
    AKA as Techgal on VMK

    Everybody neat and pretty? Then on with the show.:mickey:
