I bought this chipboard by reading a review that this works wtih the Cricut. It doesn't work all that great with the Cricut using the deep cut blade setting low, pressure high, blade depth 6, setting on multicut. Although it will cut through this chipboard for some designs most times the blade and housing will skip and jump over the chipboard creating an undesireable effect. It took a full sheet of chipboard to get one good diecut.
I read in a thread that you can put your deep cut blade in the regular green housing. So I tried it and it worked. I then tried to cut the chipboard I bought from scrapbook.com which
it did work!!
Here is how I cut the chipboard from scrapbook.com:
Blade Setting: 6
Blade: Deep cut blade put into the regular green housing.
Multi cut: 8 times
How did I multi cut 8 times you ask?
1. I went to settings pressed ok button until I got to multi cut menu
2. used arrow keys to chose multi cut to 4 times
3. then pressed settings again to exit.
To cut this chipboard try the following:
1. Chose my image
2. Press cut: It will multi cut 4 times.
3. Then press load paper: The paper will reload to starting position.
4. Press load last: Your last image will reload.
5. Press cut again: It will multi cut 4 more times.
6. Don't forget to remove you deep cut blade from green housing and put in your regular blade in the green housing.
It does work well with the zutter bind-it-all for making your own chipboard albums.
I bought these 12 x 12 thin chipboard to make five identical albums. They are the PERFECT thickness for this. Since adding paper on both sides plus embelishments, your final product does not look like a toddlers storybook,(referring to those super thick pages of the storybooks)on the contrary, the final product ends as elegant and beautiful as you expect, even with everything you add. I am super Happy and Pleased with it.
Along with scrapbooking and card making I make decorations for convention dinners. For Christmas I got a new big shot and one of the new sizzixZ die cutsd(the tea cup). It cut the chipboard like a dream. Everyone at my stamping club wants me to order more chipboard so they can make their own 3d tea cup.
Now I'm ready to try it with my cricket.
I love that we carry bulk chipboard at Scrapbook.com. I've made album covers from this chipboard and even cards. Be sure to check out the other sizes by doing a Find It Fast search for "Scrapbook.com Chipboard."
FYI: This chipboard, like most chipboard, is not acid-free.

I bought this item after searching all over the place for chipboard I could cut with my Cricut. This stuff is great! I will keep ordering it for sure. The only problem I have is the deep cut blade for Cricut is not reliable, but this chipboard is wonderful.
This chipboard pack is a great value for the money and exactly what I was looking for. It sure beats trying to cut up boxes for my projects. You guys are great and one of my favorite sites for supplies. Thank You
I have not yet used any of this but I want to have it on hand when I need it instead of running out to get it when you need it - not all Craft Stores carry it so that makes it more important to have it on hand.
I was very satisfied with my purchase of the thin chipboard. It was actually thicker thank I thought it would be. Shipping was quick, communication was great. Will order from Scrapbook.com again.
This chipboard is perfect for making album covers. It is easy to cut, easy to work with, when needing to score and bend. I think most will appreciate it. Hope I've helped.
I was looking for chipboard I could cut with my cricut machine. I had no problems cutting this chipboard!! I am thrilled with the product, the price, and the results!
I was so thrilled to see cb.com had these in bulk. I use them to make my collage projects. I can cut them with my scissors & perfect thickness for what I am doing.

I had previously purchased blank chipboard sheets from another retailer that had been advertised as working with all die-cutting dies in Sizix and Cuttlebug machines but the chipboard was way too thick for any of my dies to cut through. I then found this chipboard at Scrapbook.com and voila ... it works like a charm with my Sizix steel rule dies. Do not recommend using with Quickutz Revelution dies or Spellbinders but works great with the steel rule dies.
I ordered this chipboard to make 6x6 mini books. I am very pleased with the quality of the chipboard. It is neither heavy nor bulky and is easy to cover. The only drawback (and it's not a big one) is that it's hard to get a really good clean cut with just a regular lightweight paper cutter. A stronger more heavy duty paper cutter works great. I will definitely order this product again.
Only one flaw! Does someone know how to put post-type holes in the edge of them? They will be great once I figure that part out. I did consided a screwdriver and hammer. LOL LOL !!! Yes, I have a sense of humor....
Even though this chipboard is advertised as 'thin' it is still too thick for the Cricut Expression to cut through; even using a deep cut housing. If you do not intend on cutting it and only using it as is (ie bookmaking) then it is OK.
For my purpose - not so much.
