Is it possible to cut craft foam on my Cricut Create?

Honestly, I have read a post where someone says she has cut this in her Cricut, but I have never had good results--even using her instructions. She never posted pictures, so I am guessing there may have been an issue for her too. The foam always seems to pull and the cuts are imperfect--even jagged. I have even tried using silicone over the blade. I have tried various settings, both blade housings, and different foam thicknesses.

Unless someone has discovered the secret (which I would love to know!), I really would say 'no' that it doesn't cut properly in the Cricut.

My daughter has done this, and they turned out good she had to hold them as she cut, but am guessing you could put a sticky on the back to hold while cutting. hth

Last year I used my Cricut Create to cut kid's craft foam from Hobby Lobby. I cut out a simple (not too detailed/intricate) snowflake to make a stamp (about 4 inches). I had great results! I'm sorry my memory is not so good, so I don't remember the settings. I used blue painters tape to secure the foam on the mat. And I used the blue deep housing & blade.
