Thanks Courteney for the tips. I will try using that next time I use my Cricut. I really struggle with removing smaller cut letters that are on the vinyl paper. Any special tips for that as I always destroy them trying to peal the vinyl off.



Thanks Courteney for the neat trick. I just am starting back doing things I use to love. I use to use the 1st cricut machine. So that tells you how long it’s been. Once the kids came, the only time I could use the cricut was for school projects. Which they always did amazing on them because they looked so nice and creative. But we did have a lot of problems with things tearing a lot. Thanks for the tip. I’m going to need all the help I can get. It’s like starting over with the new cricut machine I just got. So I’ll be watching a lot of how to videos. Thanks.
