• If resizing a project, don’t forget to select all your items and ‘group’ them together first so they all resize together.
• Do a test cut first to check the blade is cutting through the card. Don’t panic if the pieces haven’t cut properly – simply press ‘cut’ again on your machine and it will repeat the action in the same place. It’s better to cut twice than increase the blade when cutting textured or coated cardstocks as it gives a cleaner cut.
When adding faux stitching, let the machine draw first, leaving in-situ on the mat and then resend the mat through for it to cut the shapes.
When adding line embossing, allow the machine to draw any faux stitching first, then cut the shape, remove it and place on the embossing mat, and line emboss as the last step.
