Default I need assistance with my Cricut please!

Those of you who have a Cricut, can you tell me what the best setting is for SU cardstock? I've tried a few pressure settings, but it hasn't cut all teh way thru the paper yet.
I would appreciate some help ASAP, so I don't ruin so much paper! arg!

The non-su paper is fine, I have that figured out. But ours is so much better, and thicker. What have you found works best?

TIA
Ariel

I read on another thread that settings 5 and 5 work well with SU cardstock. I just bought mine so I haven't tried it yet. Good luck and please report back.

Make sure that your blade is set at 6. That is the green little know in the middle right where it cuts. If it still is not cutting SU paper then yours is defective and should be exchanged for a new one. I have no problem cutting SU paper. In fact, I just made 4 scrapbook pages with it!!

Good luck!

Yes, bedrest is a good excuse but..... can't you just pop your machine on your bed and have a little break from the boredum of it all?? Just kidding! I know exactly how the last weeks of pregnancy are, it's still very fresh in my mind. My baby is 10 weeks old now so I am starting to forget!! Take lots of pictures of your baby to scrap!!

Good luck!
Robyn
