Quick Tip Tuesday: Cricut Cutting Guide

Welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday!
I just learned of a fabulous FREE resource! The Cricut Cutting Guide contains a list of 448 different crafting materials and provides the pressure, speed and depth of blade that will successfully cut each of those materials with your Cricut. The main purpose of this guide is to help you prevent paper from ripping and tearing during cutting. This resource is available as a PDF download from Above Rubies Studio. The link for the guide is on the right-hand side of the title banner. (You will have to provide your name and email address to gain access to the download. I had no issues downloading the document and saving it to my computer. The file is approximately 3 megabytes.)

Happy Crafting!
