Gypsy Tip - Loading the Mat .

I thought I had posted this but apparently not. So when I was asked this in the MB decide to dig up the photos as always pictures are better than words.
The trick to loading a mat is to keep the gypsy above and keep the mat below with the green arrows facing the same direction and then loading  or placing the paper. (Click on pic to enlarge and even though this is an Imagine mat it does not matter - and yes you can use imagine mat in cricut E - it's only vice versa not possible)

close up without the red circles so that you can see better

One other thing which helps is to get a mini photo holder and also when connecting  to cricut to keep the gypsy oriented in the way the mat goes in. That way you do not get confused.

After some time you do get used to this. But anything to make life simpler right?.. Hope this tip helps
