  15. Hi Mel, after watching your Cricut show on Ideal World and Create and Craft this morning, I just had to look up your blog. I am hoping you can and sure you will be able to help me - I have the Cricut Expression and it struggles with small cuts, if I use the simplest of fonts like on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, the machine cannot cope with cutting a letter under 2" without making parts of the letter so thin that they tear off. It is a remarkable piece of machinery for larger scale projects but not small. Letters were the easiest example but this problem occurs with other images. I would be overjoyed if you could advise me somewhat.

    Thanks, Lisa xx

  16. Hi Lisa

    I need to know what you are cutting paper wise. What your pressure and blade depth and speeds are set on. Maybe you can email your email address to so I can get in touch with you.
    Take care
