Cricut Series #5 - Fit to Length (Episode 76)

Here is the next video in my Cricut Series. I hope you enjoy it!

ETA: I have had some questions about if you didn't hit the "Fit to Length" button but just hit the size button if that would work. The answer is, no, it wouldn't work. When you select your size it is not going to be for the length of the item but, rather, for the width of the image. Did that make sense?? I hope it helps!

  2. I am learning so much through your videos, but I have a question. What would have happened if you would have just set the paper size at 11 1/4" like you did in the video and did NOT push the Fit to Length button. Wouldn't it have cut it at 11 1/4" anyway? I guess I still don't quite get this feature ket.
    Thanks so much,

  4. I,too, LOVE your videos. I have the same question as Nancy, though, about not pushing the Fit to Length button. Could you explain this for us? Thanks again for all of your great videos!

  7. I was confused too. Thanks for the clarification on the size=width, I had thought it was height. Good to know. Thanks for your videos.

  10. Hi Robyn,

    Great video....to the other ladies who questioned "why put the fit to length on?...if you dont, then it will be 11 1/4" HIGH, not length. It is a pretty cool feature to use. My only problem is, why wont it cut the whole 12"? I always do a 12x12 book so I want my border to go all the way across!

    I just love your videos. Could you do on on layering a complete subject. I have Mickey & Friends and I have been trying to do Goofy, but it doesn't give you everything you need. Do you just keep on cutting out copies of Goofy in different colors and layering them. Much help would be appreciated

  12. Robyn... like everyone else, I love your videos. I've tried this fit to length before and it is a great feature, I was wondering if you knew how to make it fit to length and adjust the height too?

  15. HI !!!! For your second attempt the larger DARK green cut If you were to use real dial size with fit to length would it then cut it 5" ?

  16. I'm sooo confused. I get the doing the length thing....but how do you then control how tall the border is going to be? Thanks for your videos...I love your hit/miss/learn method. It's great! I sit here and think...'yeah...that's how I do it..." and learn with you!

  17. I love your video's. But what if I want that border at 12 inches could I use the 12x24 mat size to get the 12 inch border size.

    at this time I do not have time to play with the expression. So maybe next week I will give this a try.

    Thanks again.
