Recently there were several interesting discussions on my FB page. Since many of you do not Facebook, I thought I would point you to them in case you need the info. You do not need a FB account to read the threads. Please feel free to post your comments either to the specific threads or to the comments section on this page here on the blog (if you do not FB).

  1. This answer is for question 4 about where to buy 110lb weight paper and heavier. 110 lb in colors. I buy from them as well as 100lb to 120lb by Bazzill Card Shoppe and SSS (simon says stamp brand) as well as the other sites already mentioned.

  2. Aloha, Jin. I just bought my Cameo and have some questions. How do you line up the mat in the Cameo? I'm will be using the 12X12 paper. Also, how do I change the mat size to 12X12. There's no selection of 12X12 on the Page workspace. And if I change the measurement, I can't select Portrait. And then I'm having problem with the blade. It doesn't come down and cannot use the rachet that it came with. I'm unable to turn the blade to whatever number I want to.
