Some Chipboard Information! - Episode~92

1st of all, here are a few questions from a few of my youtube subscribers!

QUESTION:
Do you think there's anything wrong with using the Deep Cut Blade all the time if set on a lower blade depth so it can cut cardstock? Just wondering. I've had it for almost a year & never used it @ all. What the thickness of the chipboard you can use with the Deep Blade? The regular blade can take .22, right? I think that's the cereal box size. Where did you get your thicker chipboard at? Wow, a lot of questions. Thanks Emma. XOXO :}

ANSWER:
When I use my Deep Cut blade, it rips my pattern paper all the time:( that's a BIG NO NO for me because I LOVE my pattern paper!:) It works when I cut my Papertrey Inc paper w/o tearing it! But, I would just stick w/the regular blade when cutting cardstock & pattern paper!  You can use your regular blade to cut cereal boxes! just use your multi cut 2 times! JUST TO MAKE SURE!! It can be done w/one cut, but I like it to cut out twice!
The chipboard I used in the video is comparable to "Poster Board"! It comes w/my Stampin Up pattern paper in the back of it! You can see in the video how well it cuts! I use "Light Weight" chipboard, not medium weight because it's too thick for the cricut! Now, if you pick up the poster board, you can use your regular blade & it will cut it out just fine! (I discussed this w/Christina  ~Creations w/Christina!~earlier) So she "Co-signed" this!! lol...

QUESTION:
Thanks Emma, Is that medium wiehgt? I saw some medium weight chipboard on walmaret.com and it said caution not for cricut...it will not cut med weight. Is that true?

ANSWER:
YEP, that's true.

A TIP:
Here is a tip from a demonstrator for Provocraft!
Thanks for sharing this! I am a demonstrator of the Cricut for Provo Craft and this is one of the most asked questions .....how to cut chipboard. Just a tip....you can use chipboard on older mats by simply using painters tape (blue) along the edges to hold it in place. Thanks again!

You'll understand this more after you watch my video!

I will show you an example of what the woodbook looks like put together! One example will be how it looked made w/the Gypsy AND the other will be how it looks using your CRICUT ONLY!! Enjoy!;)


I will see you back here tomorrow w/pictures of this "FUN" wordbook! Have a good night & I guess we will ALL be watching the CRICUT IMAGINE LAUNCH!!;)

  10. Hi Emma!!!!!! :)
    I love to use cereal boxes for most of my projects where I want to use chipboard. Being a teacher-things can cost quite a bit and I like to try and be as economical as possible. I do have a question...where do you purchase your chipboard? It is the perfect weight and thickness-the Cricut cut it like butter! :)
    Thanks! Wendy

  15. Thanks Emma for clarifying the issue with chipboard. I still have another question. You said, in the Boo BOok video that you used the chipboard at the back of the paper packs you use. I did that and I still can't get my cricut to cut it. Do you think it is too thick, or is it possible to insert the deep cut blade wrong?
