Hello! I have just entered the world of Cricut! And I love it! I made personalized plastic cups for the girls in the family for Christmas. Great success!
I just got the Word Collage cart and the cut went through the backing on the vinyl. I have a mini Cricut. What settings should I use? After more internet research found out this is called kiss cut. I am using outdoor vinyl. I have tried all combinations of settings and the backing gets cut too. Please help!
Thanks very much! Wink

Usually they say to use the blade 3, pressure 3, and speed 3. I don't have the mini but have the E, E2 and the Imagine. Most of the time I just do a trial cut because every machine is different well for me they are I use different settings on each one. Last cut I did with the E2 was pressure 2 speed 3 and blade 4. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help! But no luck. I am thinking its the vinyl??? I got it off Amazon.
Please confirm that I am doing this correctly: I am trying to cut a word collage. And I don't want the backing to cut through so I can use transfer tape to adhere to the board I am decorating?
Is this correct? I cut one collage and when I pulled it off the mat it all stayed stuck except for the outline. Ended up with a mess of letters!
Thanks again for all of your help!

Try 2-2-2. That's what I use on my E2.

Can anyone help! I have had the Cricut for approx. 3 weeks but have only been able to use it twice as the blade becomes blunt after about 6-7cuts. I have had to order 2 new blades and only have one left and I have used different types of card without success.Bored javascript:insertsmiley('Bored%20','/forum/Images/Emoticons/cr_bored.gif')

My mini also tends to cut through the backing on 3. I've been doing 2-2-3. I've also played with 2-3-3 and that works pretty well too.

My E2 doesn't cut through the backing when I use 3-3-3. I don't know why the mini seems to cut a bit deeper. Maybe that's why the cuts are so nice on the mini.....
