[Video]How to Use Custom Settings on Cricut Explore Design Space

The new Cricut Explore makes cutting different materials a cinch with this dial!

But, what if you want to cut a different material like felt, leather, metal, or vellum?  Or what if you want to create your own custom setting?

Well, you can!  See the video below on how to do it - it's really easy.  I created a setting for intricate designs in the video and now it's saved - so I can use it over and over!

Watch the video below (or click HERE if you can't see it):

  1. Wonderful. I cut glitter cardstock and when I cut a word/phrase it tears sometimes. I adjust the blade from 6 to 5 and it cuts ok then.

  15. Awesome with all the choices and the ability to customize.

  17. I"m sure I'm in the minority - but I don't really cut other materials - I can't even keep up with my paper projects!

  18. That is so awesome that you can set and save your own custom settings. Thanks so much for sharing all these great tips for us, it is really helpful. And thanks for sharing how awesome the cuts are. Have a great day!

  19. I am waiting for my new Cricut to arrive and am so glad to listen/watch your videos. Thanks for sharing!

  20. My Explore is scheduled to arrive today and I cannot decide which material to try first. I am quite certain it will be paper since that is what I have on-hand and it does not require much preparation, but I think fabric won't be too far behind. Thanks again to sharing what you have learned with us so we can get to creating a little faster.

  21. Well I'm impressed with all the materials the guess work is done. My Explore was scheduled to arrive yesterday but it shipped out yesterday but I did receive my Explore Antique & Metallic markers and my Explore tool kit with the scorer today....

  22. What an incredible machine! Your tutorials are amazing. thanks for sharing!

  23. A great machine. Again, a great tutorial.

  25. In my opinion the ability to easily cut different media is a great innovation.

  26. I think I have to wait for all the kinks to be worked out then start to really "explore" everything about the new machine, in terms of supplies I am overwhelmed thanks for the chance to win

  27. Can't wait to try out all these different materials on the new machine! Thanks for the great tutorial.

  28. Thanks for the video!!!! You always do a great job.

  29. don't know if the first one went through so I said this one looks good.

  30. I love all the materials that the Cricut Explore can cut. I am counting down the days till mine arrives. I have never tried cutting chipboard before . I have tried Material on the expression but is it is a hit or miss. I can't wait to see how the new machines cuts all the different materials I have been dying o try. Love all your videos as they have been a great learning experience.
