      Hi Paula, thank you. I’m just learning my machine and the Design Space. I’m a newbie and have never worked with a Cricut, so it’s going kind of slow. I do have a question. Do you know what kind of blade comes with the Explorer 3? It seems to be too sharp and tears the paper a little. I’m still trying to figure out how heavy the cut should be.

        If your blade is tearing the paper, could be 2 reasons:

        1- you are not using the right setting on your device

        2- You can adjust the pressure of the cut

        Do you have the type of paper that you are using and which setting are you selecting in your cricut?
