  • each color is a new paper you have to load and cut. so I'd load yellow for hair, cut, then load pink for the dress, cut, load flesh tone, cut, etc.
    I love my cricut :D I have the expression and the smaller personal cutter.
    I even recently used my tinkerbell cartridge to decorate a birthday cake! :D

  • yes, there are different buttons for each thing you want to cut. and each cartridge comes with a booklet that tells you what buttons you need to press

  • Yep! I have one and I love it!!! I don't get to use it as much as I'd like, but it really does so many neat things. Just read your little cartridge instruction booklet and it'll tell you how to figure it out! Good Luck! Have fun!!!
