Silhouette blades

Rhoda JayneRhoda Jayne Member Posts: 1,630
It's been a super long time since I e crafted or been here. I got burned out and stopped crafting. I recently unpacked my cameo and silhouette sd and upgraded the SIL Software and reinstalled MTC. About the only thing I want to cut is vinyl now.
I had bought this click holder from thatscrappin and I bought blades from Elkins Creek. Can anyone tell me what type of blade to buy to go with the click holder? It's been years since I placed an order with them. I hope I can remember how to do some basic vinyl cutting and weeding.

    I'd either buy from ebay or go on line to the Silhouette shop and get their blades.  They come in a holder that has numbers on it that you rotate to set at the cutting depth you want.  I guessing vinyl would require a very light touch so I would start with the blade at 1 and pressure very low and cut a small trial icon to see what changes you need to make.  I use to cut direct from MTC as I didn't like the Silhouette software but that's me.  Other get on with it with no difficulty.  I'm sure others will be along shortly and bring you up to speed on this particular issue.

    I gathered up all my cutting supplies and I have some of the silhouette ones too. I used both of them when I was cutting. I just don't know how sharp any of them are now since it's been so long since e I used any of that stuff.
    my first projects will be to decorate my pressure cookers! Thank goodness I still have a roll of black vinyl.

    I'm think some of the others will know of the click blade holder you've mentioned

    If you could put up a photo of the holder that may also help them confirm this

    If I'm not mistaken, it uses the same blades as the Cricut Expression did.  I have been looking for that blade holder, as I sold the one that went with the Expression when I sold it.  I have been using a the silhouette blade, but that is expensive to replace.  I bought a CB09 blade holder and blades and need to get it set just right and then I'll be cutting like butter. :)
