I use Stampin Up and the whisper white is terrible for cutting. It just shreds. Drives me crazy....is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have an idea why this happens? Should I give up and try another brand? If so, can you please recommend another brand?
I emailed SU! Looking for an answer and all I got was 'we will look into this but you wont hear back from us.....just understand that we are discussing this issue'....argh
I sand my edges smooth with sand paper.

I made the biggest size bag (box style gift bag) my E could cut and it was still only about 3 or 4" across.

There is a lawsuit between Provocraft and Make the Cut and possibly other 3rd party software.
I don't agree with what's happened but will boycott with my buying $ not words.

Maybe lawsuit is not the right word but along those lines.
There are a lot of groups out there with many words good
and bad being thrown about, I'm sure if you googled something
along those lines you'd find the information on this you need.

Damask and the Elegant Edges are certainly what I will be interested in, but I hope to see someone use them so we know how well they cut in small sizes. I have lacy labels and when I cut some of them for cards, parts of them cut too thin and shred. I made samples of each label so that I have an idea of what is the smallest size I can cut them.

Default Cutting Fabric

Can you cut fabric with heat set fusible webbing on the back in the Cricut? Or I guess what I am saying is can you make like iron on die cuts on the Cricut?

Supposedly you can cut using heat n bond ultra on the back. The only downside to that is that heat n bond ultra will be very stiff so it makes the clothing it's on hang funny IME. I've never tried cutting it with the cricut.

Ok great. I am actually making cobbler aprons. The fabric is almost canvas so I think it will work great. I will report on it later this evening!

It was the designer expression. I got the plum one, but they had other colors when I was there. I'm not sure if all of the Walmarts have clearanced them down to that price.

They haven't! I have the expression but for $100 I would buy a colored one! Here they were 195 on black friday but my wal-mart didn't clearance the couple they have left and in fact it is 250 now!

Try Ebay. The highest I have ever paid for a cart on Ebay is $35. Most of them I have gotten are between $20 and $30 on Ebay.

What happens if you use the deep cut blade and its not necessarily a "deep cut"? What determines what IS a deep cut?

Just wondering if anyone knows of a resource that lists what images are on which cart. I am looking for a cartridge with a bunny. I cannot find the Easter seasonal anywhere and that is the only one I know of that has a bunny. Any suggestions? TIA

I love Oh My Crafts, but I got my Expression from Hallmarkscrapbook.com, at the time they were the cheapest and they had free shipping. They also have the super cheap cart. prices like OMC.
