Cricut Series #6- Portrait Button

Here is the latest video in my Cricut Series. I show how to use the Portrait button. Of course, there are other ways to use this button. Also, if you are using the Designer Series software then you probably will not ever need it.

  3. Robyn,

    I love your videos as always. About the set paper size portrait.... I put my paper in the bottom left corner just like always and then you move the blade to the top right corner of the paper. I have never had problems doing this. I hope this makes sense.

    Also as I was watching your video my little boy (2 1/2) told me I needed to use my 'fricket' too. So I tried out the portrait set paper size again for you.

  4. Thank you! I will have to try that with setting the paper. I didn't think that it would work but I will give it a try!! I appreciate it!

  5. Some shapes can be cut larger when you use Portrait. Try making an oval frame--when the paper is in Portrait mode you can cut it half an inch larger. This is especially helpful for those of us who have only the 12 x 12 mat.

    Thanks for the tutorials!

    Thanks for the demo. I love the letter shapes on the elmo cart. I think that is my next purchase

  7. Is there a way to turn off the music as I can't hear you during your video?

  8. I just went and checked and I can barely hear the music. I wonder what setting your computer is on. This video only has it in the background unlike my other videos where there is louder music. I'm so sorry about that.

  17. I use portrait when I have patterned paper and I want the orientation of the picture on the paper to be right side up and I am using a scrap and it has to go only one way .. the reason I got my expression is my little bug wouldn't cut in portrait so the characters could only be less than 6" and I scrapbook in 12 x 12

  20. Robyn,

    I would have never thought to put more than one color paper on my mat, you are so great.

  21. Thanks so much for all the videos! I just got my pink cricut and your videos have really helped me get the most out of it!

  22. Thanks for your tutorials. I am just now learning that you can use the arrows on the expression to put the blade on the paper where you want it. Every time that I have tried to do that on my machine it moved back to the top corner once I pressed the cut button.

  23. Not sure what this button does that you haven't done with other buttons.
    (I am not a Cricut owner - yet) but wonder what is the point of this one button.
    Thanks for your teaching and blog information.
