RELEVANT TO CRICUT CUTTING
A convenient 1-page form to record and keep track of the settings you use that have produced successful results so you can repeat them again later. I have started accumulating my settings using this form to make note of the existing Cricut standard settings that work along with any of my adjustments to them, and my own custom settings.

CRICUT MATERIAL SETTINGS
(CUTTING CARDSTOCK TEMPLATES)
Sometimes fabric is too thick or dense to be cut using the Maker. In these situations, I like to cut out templates for tracing the pieces to fabric. I have found a few good materials for this and developed settings that work for them.

ABOUT CRICUT BLADES
A summary of Cricut blades including their relevant attributes relative for bag makers including their maximum thickness and their ability for precision. For example, get the blades you really need and don't waste money on blades that are only different in color versus true capability. Learn not only the maximum thickness they can cut, but the hidden truth about the blades that don't cut small curves less than 3/4" well, and perhaps you thought it was you or that the file was bad!
