Using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge - What Size Cuts To Make?

CTMH Artiste Cartridge Purse On Page 31
 As more people are introduced to the world of Cricut, I thought it might be helpful to offer a tutorial on how to know what sizes to dial on the machine for intended results.  This video explains how to know the orientation of the designs in relation to the cutting blade.  It is intended for people who want to put the cartridge in and cut without making adjustments in a software program beforehand.

I show examples of all fourteen of the cuts from one page of designs.  The same information can be used on the other nearly 700 designs that are part of this cartridge.

Here are some of the cuts from the video shown as completed projects.
