Thanks again for all your help, I can't believe how helpful you have all been!!

I have looked at the photos put on earlier, and if I knock the small overlap of card off my cuts, then it looks pretty much the same, as the photos, just a slight notch/dip on where the blade starts the cut, and it doesn't seem to do it on all shapes, so perhaps its just how it is.

I am still playing around with settings, and getting used to my machine, but I have had my blade depth at 4, my pressure at 4, and my speed at 3.

Will try your settings. Thanks

Emma

Hi Emma, I am not a million miles away from you. I sometimes have issues with the cuts, the same as you, the start and end just don't line up. My cricut goes through phases.

Try first resetting the cricut sweetie.
Sometimes the blade cartridge may need to be reset (the red button when you move the blade and peep in where the blade housing usually rests)
But sassy is right as there was some problems. If resetting your cricut does not help then do call PC or return and get your cricut exchanged
here's how to reset in case you want to try
The steps are
1) Turn your machine on with no cartridge loaded. Then you are going to roll all your gray dials (the two on the left and the one on the right) down to their lowest settings.


2) Then you will want to grasp the green/gold cylinder blade assembly and use it to pull the entire gray carriage car unit (the one with the Cricut bug on it) along its track to the other side of the machine. Back in the cave where the gray carriage car usually sits there is a red button. Press that button and hold it down for about three seconds. Let go and then move the gray carriage car back into place.


3) This next step will sound a bit odd, but many times it can fix your little "bug". You're going to roll all your dials (one by one) all the way up and all the way down three times---three times for each dial. Then you are going to hit the Cut button and turn the machine off. Let the machine sit for a few minutes (15-20), load a cartridge, turn it on, and try a practice cut.

Pam that is great advice. I am going to copy it into our tips, tricks and tutorial section so we have a record of it rather then having to hunt the threads incase anybody else needs it.
