Anyone got any tips, I was inspired to cut a title out vellum after watching the in the mood to scrap video today. Some letters cam out okay and others didnt. I tried various speeds and pressure, anybody got any fool proof advise?

Did you try multi cut? I'm thinking that since it is a heavier weight it might need that or the deep blade. I've never tried cutting vellum.

Do you need to change the blade? That can happen when the blade is blunt. After that I'd try it on a medium speed on maybe 2 or 1. It shouldn't need too much as a very light weight paper

Its a funny thing those blades. I am about to change mine because the same thing was happening on one type of cardstock but was ok on bazzill too (not cutting all the way through in some areas and perfectly cut in others)

Please post an update if it works, I like to know myself if it was helpful or not, if not there maybe another solution.

I usually cut with my cardstock setting but I do lower the speed to 1 when cutting delicate designs!
