Gypsy Tip - To get a image larger than the mat size

- yep even than 12 x 24 inch mat. With the latest updates (ie after 0155)  if you have the default cursor on ie 1 inch and then add the image and try increasing it will stop when the width or height touches the mat sides.You can move the image off the mat but will not increase beyond.
A way to get larger image is to initially set the cursor at a very high value and add the image. Then the image will be large. You can then decrease to the size you want. Note once you decrease you cannot increase. To increase you will have to start over again

Pam, I've seen several of your youtube videos which have been very helpful, and I'm hoping you may have a suggestion for a project I can't figure out. I'm new to the gypsy and cricut expression (got both within the last month), and I understand the basics, but I can't do the project I want. I want to make a large vinyl tree (5-6 feet tall) for the wall. I can't seem to get the gypsy to let me move the tree around on the mat to get the cuts right. After I get it "big" it won't let me select the tree - I just keep selecting the cursor. And, beyond that, even if I could get it to save the first part of the tree, I'm not sure how I would get it to let me put the other parts of the tree on multiple other mats. Any suggestions? I've searched youtube and the cricut message boards, but I just can't seem to find an answer to this specific issue.
Thanks, Melissa
