Hi, All~

Using lightweight scrapbooking paper (Not cardstock), I am having problems with the blade tearing my paper. I've tried shifting the settings to 3 (blade) 3 pressure and the paper is still tearing. I've tried several sheets of paper with the same result.

Wasting precious paper and need help.

Can any of you scrapbookers using the mini give me any advice on settings?

Many thanks. Blink

Just to close out this post, trial and error works again. I figured out the settings for my paper and the mini is cutting just fine.

Hi, Johnnie~

Actually, I gave up using my lightweight scrapbooking paper. There was no setting that worked well with it.I purchased cardstock (first time in my scrapbooking career) and the cuts were just perfect. My settings are at 3 or 4 for the blade, and 3 or 4 for the pressure, depending on medium weight or heavy weight.

I am using the scrapbooking paper for backgrounds and the cardstock for cutouts and lettering. The cuts are great and the removal from the mat is working fine.

My problem didn't really get solved (using lightweight paper for cuts) but this is a reasonable work-around for me. Also, there are plenty of cardstock sales at Michael's.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Hello. I own an Imagine and Expression 2 and when using lightweight paper (90gsm) the paper would tear when trying to cut out a butterfly from one of the Martha Stewart cake cartridges. I tried various settings and ended up with pressure 3 and blade 4 and still the paper would tear until I tried brayering my paper down on to the mat so that it was well and truly flat with no air between the mat and paper. When I did this - success! Hope this helps. I managed to cut 70 butterflies this way.
