New Year – New Mat!!!

I was cutting a few designs out of vinyl and it just seemed to keep tearing….. I powered through and cut a second time & then carefully coaxed it while weeding the design….

You can find that previous blog post with image HERE.

A few days later I sit down to cut a few more and think to myself, “Let’s try a new mat and see if it makes a difference.”

Oh my gosh! I don’t know why I always forget to try this….. It’s probably because I feel that my old mat is still sticky, but it just must not be sticky enough. A new mat, the vinyl doesn’t slip at all and I think that makes all the difference in clear cut lines…. This design below was so easy to weed and on 651, which I seem to have more issues with weeding.


New mat = problem solved!

img_5328 I found this design in the Silhouette store and it said “Buy Me”…. well – click… and now I can just place it on my mat, resize it and cut. So simple!

 I wish you all a very Happy New Year & wish you many blessings in 2017!!

Enjoy !
