Well I finally fixed my cricut, cuts are finally good and not torn. I looked at the blade and the blade housing and noticed there was rust on the blade and it seemed to be not turning so well in the blade housing. So with nothing to lose I scrubed really carefully the blade top to get as much rust I could off. Then added a drop of wd40 and a tiny drop to the inside of the blade housing. Put it all back together again and tired cutting thinking it wont work but little did I know it did. Got a clean cut just like it was brand new. I am sure provo craft would not recommend this fix but hey it saved me 30.00 the cost of a new housing. And plus there plastic now I am sure cause of this very same problem I had. What cant you fix with wd40 best little helper to have around. Hope this helps anyone having trouble with there cricuts I had tried new blades new mats and had no clue. So if yo have tried it all except buying a new housing give this a try and see if you can extend that housing just a little longer and save 30.00 for another cartage....lol

Here is the Mother's Day card I made this year, took me forever to make this cause I had to work with what I had. My cricut is still out of service and cant find my other blade housing. Still packed up in storage, will be so glad when life gets back to normal. Never really knew how much I used my cricut till I did not have it to work with.
But life goes on and had to have a mother's day card. Lucky I had a few dies cuts on hand. Used what I had and made it work in the card. Also the rub ons I bought a while back came in handy. First time I had used rub ons, I have to say I really liked them will get more. Have really been using alot of stamps as well, some I find I really like and others well not so much...lol
