There must be a way to take the cutting blade out, replace with a marker, and then replace the cutting blade and cut the item just a little larger to keep the marked lines, but I'm at loss as to how to accomplish this. Anyone know?

I would think it would cut right on top of the Marker Line. The Markers are really just for drawing and not a die cut. Of course, you could always hand cut it.

If you draw it first with the marker then without removing mat replace with cutting blade your blade will cut in the middle of the marker line, leaving part of your line inside your cut and part of the line outside...giving you a nice definition around your edges.

If you are using CCR, I can help you with this.

Are you using CCR?

I have used the pens, then load mat and cut shadow.
You can also layer with the Gypsy and CCR making sure the images are lined up.
Good luck

It is just as GrammyChris said. I haven't done this in like maybe 2 years so bear with me if I forget a step or 2Blushing

1. load the mat with your paper into the cricut
2. remove the blade and replace with a marker (I usually place a small piece of paper beneath the blade holder because sometimes the marker might mark my paper on the mat if I am not careful enough)
3. select your settings, - the marker will draw your image. I believe for drawing the pressure has to be at medium which is 3
4. DO NOT unload your mat
5. use the arrow buttons and go back to zero OR press the "load last" button
6. remove marker carefully so as not to mark paper or just use the bit of paper like me and replace blade in the holder
7. Change the pressure from 3 to what you usually use when you cut
8. Press the "repeat last" button or select the settings you just used for the image

HTHSmile

ETA When it cuts, it will cut in the middle of where the marker drew.

Depending on what cuts I am drawing I sometimes cut the blackout version so there are no cut lines through my image.

I hope this makes sense.

Are you saying when you use the marker, then cut your image, that you're not seeing the marker lines on your cut image? Like others are saying, when you use the marker, you should see the marker on your CUT image after you cut it out.

Some like to CUT first; then they use the marker. Maybe that would help you.

I thought you were saying you would like to see MORE of the line of the marker on your images after you CUT.

Have you tried setting your PRESSURE dial on the highest pressure? This will effect a heavier line of the marker.

ONE OTHER THING......you need to CUT as soon as you use the MARKER without the mat unloading from your CRICUT. If the mat unloads and you try to go back in to CUT or to use the MARKERS on your already cut image, it won't line up correctly.

ON MY EXPRESSION:

Here's what I do.....I use the MARKER first (if you CUT first, use the same instruction). Without letting the mat unload, I insert the blade. THEN, I hit LOAD PAPER (this moves the blade up to the top) and LOAD LAST (this allows the blade to start exactly where the MARKER started on the image you just made.

You can do multiple images that you want to outline as long as you do not unload the mat; so, you already have to have all the images selected when you first start the CUT.

ON MY MINI:

Same as above, except you don't have LoadPaper/LoadLast buttons. You merely use the MARKER or BLADE first and go back to the computer to hit CUT again after you change to the MARKER or BLADE for the second pass.

DOES ANY OF THIS HELP YOU?

Hi,
I am a newbie here. Have tried to
draw images using some tools? I am not so sure about your probelm. But you can sole it in a simpler and faster way if you have a fine tool. I hope you success. Good luck.

Here is a post using the markers and gel pens, the expression, and gypsy. Maybe there will be some pointers you can use...
