Glueing titles to a page can be so tedious, especially when the letters are very thin/fine. Has anyone tried running their cardstock through a Xyron before cutting with their Cameo???

No, but I have used adhesive backed card stock. Worked like a charm!

I haven't used adhesive backed cardstock with the Cameo - do you use the same settings you would for regular cardstock? I've got some adhesive backed DCWV matstacks - anyone tried them in the Cameo?

I had asked Silhouette about this. They said less intricate shapes are okay to do this with. They also said use a sharp blade.

I just use the Xyron on the item after I cut it.

I don't have a Cameo, but I do this with my Cricut. I place it paper side down on the mat with the Xyron backing paper facing up. I then REVERSE my title (so words will not be backwards!) or image and cut. Works like a charm!

I use my Xyron after cutting with my Silhouette all of the time. I don't know if the adhesive would mess up the blade, but it's great to just run everything through afterwards.

I cut first then put them through my Xyron.

He rejoices over me with singing (Ze 3:17)
He bestowed on me a crown of beauty instead of ashes,

I also cut first, xyron second...I like it better than spray adhesive...no cardboard box required to catch the excess!

Thanks for all the responses. It seems like the majority of you use Xyron after. I was concerned that the adhesive would somehow "gum up" the blade and dull it.

When using Spray Adhesive is there any problems with fumes? I have asthma. I can open a window when spraying. Would this be good enough? I hate Xyron boogers too. I hate buying the replacement cartridges even more.

Xyroning first and then cutting will just gum up your blade, making it harder to cut and you'll ultimately ruin your paper. The adhesive doesn't really dull the blade, but it does gum it up and could eventually not allow the blade to turn as freely as it needs to.
I love the spray - I use it in my garage though because of the over spray. I just put things in a box turned on it's side and spray lightly. Kind of a pain to drag stuff around, but worth it!
