Guide for the Cricut Cutting Mats

One important part of using a Cricut machine is understanding what cutting mat is right for the project you are working on.  

Once you start using a Cricut, you'll get use to each of the cutting mats.  But let me share a little bit more about Cricut cutting mats with you.
Whether you are using the Cricut Explore Air or the Cricut Maker, the cutting mats are the same.  They are also used for the same materials for both machines.  

However, the Explore Air does not cut all the same materials 
that the Cricut Maker can.  
Each Cricut mat was created for different materials and purposes.  That means each of the mats has a different level of grip. 

Some were made with a strong adhesive for heavy projects and others were made with a light adhesive to ensure that your project doesn't rip or tear.

Design Space Tutorials for Beginners

Whether you are trying to navigate Design Space for the first time, or learning how to slice (or heck – learning what slicing even means!), Cricut has a wealth of educational tools available to help. We’ve compiled them here for you. And, because we know everyone learns differently, we’ve gathered a variety of shorter video tutorials, longer step-by-step instructional webinars, and even written content.

Our site contains many links to sites developed by people over whom Cricutin exercises no control
and therefore Cricutin can not be held responsible/liable for their content
