Did this video help you?

Kassie Fairbanks: You can also fold up a piece of aluminum foil and you don't need the mat underneath! It makes crisp thin pieces! This is amazing! I used her advice and positioned it between the rollers on my cricut mini. I am so glad I kept my old blade.

kharlie22: Your excitement was just too cute!!! I love the fireworks when it started to work, hilarious!!!

victoria Ciolek: Joy you R 2 funny...I love watching and re watching your video's....I always learn something...and your brave enough to try it! you got guts girl...love it....v

Mary Jones: Like it

Pauline Johnson: I cracked up! Love this video! 

Mary Jones: Like it

Bev Lawson: What a great idea! I noticed that you have the lines at the top of the embossed image where the needle is passing over the image to get to another position. I've had these and I even contacted Cricut. When I googled this problem - lots of people have complained about this. After trying all kinds of things, I think I finally solved this issue. With time, the cutting pads begin to curl on the edges. When I move the blade to the left before I press cut, it doesn't do this. 

Tim Stone: Hi! I've watched alot of videos with this technique. Although. I think you did a great, I wanted to share what I also learned. So first of all this does dull your blades so save old ones. And second if you use a silicon baking sheet, you won't get those roll marks. Just thought I'd pass it on! Love your videos and happy crafting!

Cyrrah Gunia: My jaw is on the floor! I can't wait to try this!!

Dee Johnston: just seen the video wow glad I saved old blades, lololo more fun who knew !!!!!!!! thanks

Constance Woods: I guess l'll be saving my old citing blades.

Stitchscape: aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh - I only just in the last quarter of an hour found out about embossing with the Cricut and I can feel my insides bouncing around and my skin is tingling. This is MEGA exciting for me - I'm so glad somebody else squels in excitement at things like this :-) What a great use for old blades. I WANT those metal sheets from Spellbinders too. Gotta go try some myself. This is wonderful!

gobeagirl: This is great! I haven't uswd my poor Cricut in a couple years and I even uswd to teach a class when we had a scrapobooking store. I make cards now. However your idea has my mind thinking of all the things I could do with this. You could emboss and then use the shadow feature to cut it out. I am so excited to pull out my E and play. Thanks for sharing. Hugs Lisa G

Joy Dickson: @mypinkcrafter Awww, super thank you! :)

Karen Driscoll: I love this!! Thank you for sharing!! I just wanted to tell you, that you have the embossed and debossed backwards, The side that is on top, (where the upside down blade is) is the debossed, and the other is the embossed. I just learned this so I thought I would share. You can remember by debossed and depress, or words like that mean basically mean down so where the indentation is that is debossed. (I'm not trying to be a know it all, just wanted to share)

craftsandbargains: Thanks Joy! You're the Best! Love Your Original Tutorials! TFS!

Karen Cook: Thank you so much for showing this! I was going to buy the big shot just to be able to emboss but now I can wait on that purchase!

MC H: Just came across this and I love the idea! I can just picture embossing one sheet and using it as a background on the cut out one. Think it may look quite cool! (if it works) :) x

Lunnsdesigns: WOW!!! Girl, you are really smart. TFS
