Thank you It's Me, JD for the tutorial on Pop-Up cards. I'm new at all of this, just purchased the Maker in Jan 2021 and watching you go through some things with the stop watch ticking away I'll know what to expect. Very helpful throughout your video

I was excited to watch this video but rather disappointed as it all looks rather raggedy around the edges and the envelope looks gluey. I appreciate home-made cards are difficult to make perfect but I would be embarrassed to give that to anyone. Sorry if I sound unkind. Is it a cutting error, or an incorrect cardstock used?

This makes the cutter look kind of crappy. I mean the paper is all torn and ripped and not cut nicely at all. You might want to redo this video with a sharper blade.

Hi! Can you post a link of the items youve used, glue and the adhesive? And the score cut at the end?

Pareen Diaz

It looked like the machine didn’t properly cut some places and it was ripping. Is that correct? If so, is that due to an old blade? Or the blade not going deep enough? I’m thinking about getting one but not really keen if I will have to re cut things by hand.

Debra Ross

I can’t believe they sponsored you. You cuts are horrible, it might be your blade or your paper. You should have practiced first so your video would be much more polished and professional

JD my kids just bought me a cricut. I am clueless on how to use it. Do you have beginner tutorials from opening the box to how to use everything. I am a card maker. Have only used stamps, dies and the big shot. Can you help. I am in a small town in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Trying to decide between the Brother Scan n Cut 2 or the Cricut Explore Air 2 and wondering if Explore Air 2 can cut a stamped image that has inside and outside (Like a stamped wreath)?

Hey my YouTube friend! I’m a new subscriber. I love your channel! The first card you made with the polar bears, it didn’t look good on the edges... it seemed I don’t know how to describe it but raggedy.(no fault of your own & this is not an attack on you at all) It looked so hard to get the card to look nice then trying to figure out what to pop up & what you shouldn’t pop out...Why did this happen? Does the Cricut do this with every pop out? Also, you mentioned a few times that a layer isn’t compatible with your machine. Why & what does that mean? I’m thinking about getting a cricut but I’m not so sure now. Thanks for making videos JD!!!:)

I love the roller coaster card! I think I will combine my Lawn Fawn stamping with the Cricut pop up card. I have the Lawn Fawn stamp set with the roller coaster and the little kids in the cars. Plus there are cute sentiments in that set.

JD congrats on your first sponsor, I can’t believe you didn’t have them before because you’re very creative and inject humor in all your videos. Way to go! My fave is the roller coaster. I think sentiments link hang in there, for all of life’s ups and downs, and challenges would make it very versatile.

Thats a pretty big deal! Love your cards! My very first pop up card I ever made was the Bear & cub. Made it for my dad when he had shingles. He loved it! My Air 2 wrote inside: Get well soon Papa Bear. Wish I could add a photo I could send it to you! Keep Creating! Oh, next time my machine cuts O am going to spin in my chair too. LOL 😁😍😁

Great cards. A tip for moving objects to another mat.....when you are in the "make it" viewing screen, click on the object you want to move. There will be a box around it. Click on the 3 dots in the upper left corner of the box. Choose "move to another mat". You can move it to an existing mat or you can move it to a different mat of you color choice even if it's the same color you're moving it from.

Just thought of something I learned recently. that might be helpful for you ... when your mats start to lose their “stick” “stickyness” (??) you can clean them with a product called Totally Awesome. A large bottle is $1 at the Dollar Store. Spray it on your mat and let it sit for 5 minutes or so. Gently scrape the loosened debris off your mat with the edge of an old gift card or whatever works. Rinse your mat and watch all the yuck go down the drain. Air dry your mat and you’ll find it’s pretty sticky again. I tried several other products but nothing worked as well. And now, I’m off to make a Kraken pop up card !

Carrie McSorley

I also have a Cricket Air 2, but it’s about three years old. When you made your pop ups, you mentioned that certain aspects (drawing) weren’t supported in your version of the machine. Does that mean your cricket won’t hold a pen ? If so, that’s a shame, because there are many nice “drawn” elements - I’m surprised Cricket would eliminate this option. Maybe I’m misunderstanding you.

danceswithpam 2 months ago

Thanks for your video. I'll have to check out the pop up cards. They look so cool. Your paper looks really heavy. I have some card stock like that so I just change the setting to heavy cardstock and change the pressure to "more." It's usually set at normal. Sometimes even that doesn't work so I stopped using that type of cardstock. Love your videos. Glad you are doing Cricut. I'm looking for more Cricut ideas!

JD, let me first say, you are adorable! I love your quirky sense of humor, your silly camera work, and, of course, your tips and tricks. I have a Cricut Expore Air 2. It draws without a problem. In fact, I use it to add personalized sentiments to my cards. If yours isn’t “Drawing” there’s something wrong. It may be a wrong setting or a firmware update or something else. Contact Cricut Customer Service. I have found them to be very helpful, patient, and can, usually, find the problem quickly. If I’m going to be honest, it’s usually user error. 🥴 Also, I agree with others on your blade and/or pressure. It actually, could be your paper setting. It looks like you may have had it set for med. cardstock, 80lb, and it should have been heavy cardstock, 110lb. I keep my dial on custom. It reminds me to set the material and that helps me to fine tune to the right weight. It also will give you the “Default’ pressure setting. Click that link to increase or decrease the pressure. Using the dial will not give you this option. Jennifer Maker has some great tutorials, if you want to check them out. Good luck with your new toy! Have fun! They are awesome!!

YAY! You got a sponsor from Cricut! You deserve it! Really cute cards.
I wish we didn't have to replace the blades so often, but an awesome alternative to dies. TFS!

The paper cuts horribly. I got out my cricut for the first time in over a year and didn't get anywhere. I couldn't even find images. Yes, I'm cricut challenged, but trying.

Melanie 2 months ago

Oh you can crank the dial to "custom" for additional cut settings as well. You probably just need to crank it a little further past card stock and you'll be fine. In the custom settings in design space you do have more options. It does take some tinkering with though.

A Seal

Nice, I have a Maker and have not tried the pop up cards yet. TIP: you need to use a cardstock that is smooth and not too fibrous (like Recollections from Michaels). That's why your paper looks torn and not smooth. Not being mean, but been there, done that, solved it by using a different cardstock. It also helps if you increase the cutting pressure on the Cricut, does yours have that function, the Maker does. But THANK YOU for all your help tips and beautiful projects. ♥♥♥

Why not set your dial to custom and then you get so many more options on the computer though design space. I refuse to use any other setting with my AE2

I like the Anna Griffin cards. I also have the Explore Air 2, but mine does the draw elements as well as the cutting. Try attaching your "draw" part and see if it tells you when to put in your pen. Hope this helps.

NancyLouWho 2 months ago

looks like you need to either change your blade or increase your cutting pressure one level -- your pieces should not be that difficult to separate

I didn’t know it did pop up I have a 1 but still great. Thanks.

Casey Hoyt

Hi JD, I wanted to let you know that you can actually change the size of the paper, that way you don't have to change the color of a layer. After you hit "Make It" you'll see your different mats, you'll also see a paper size and that's where you'll change it! Hope this helps! Happy crafting!

Anita Milner

Always enjoy your videos! Your style is so conversation and still educational. Suggestion is to use “more pressure” to make a cleaner cut.
