I boughht some Cricut mats for my Sil...planning on cutting them down...Now that I have them out of the package..

They are SO MUCH thicker than the Sil Mat...Will this be a problem? Do I need to make any adjustments in order to use them?

Okay...so maybe I need a "silhouette for dummies" book, LOL...I just googled and apparently there are 2 types of mats.

So my new question is: Are the cricut mat and the thick media silhouette mat about the same thicknes?

You will be fine using a cricut mat for your sil, you just may need to trim it down to fit. You will find you like using it better than the sil mat.

Thanks!

Will the thicker mat make it so I use a different blade than normal?
