Hi! I just purchased a Cuttlebug. The C plate does not come with the machine anymore. Do I need to purchase one? What would it be used for? Thanks!

Second question - Cuttlebug doesn't yet have a magnetic plate like Spellbinders does. Has anyone tried using the "magnetic shim for use on the Wizard?" It seems to be the right size, but I don't want to invest in something that might damage my machine.

I have a Cuttlebug and love it! So simple to use, following Gina's great tutorial on the plates. But I need to ask everyone about using the big, black dies, like the Tim Holtz. Has anyone else tried them? My gut feeling is to just lay the die on the machine (no A or first B plates), put the paper on top of the die, then cover with the C, then run it through. What does everyone think>?

You're welcome.  Good luck.  I have a lot of trial-and-error moments when I'm making cards.

Thanks for the info - I'll try it!!!

Metty, I've used the roll-on adhesives to layer directly on an embossed piece and I had to use a lot more than usual.  The pieces would start to come apart with the usual amount after a while, so I added more roll-on and then placed a heavy book on the card for a day.  Now I use a heavy-duty adhesive when layering on embossed surfaces

I notice that Gina K. never layers directly onto an embossed piece unless she uses pop dots or score tape. Isn't it possible to just use adhesive on a top layer?

I have just purchased a Metal Shim for my Cuttlebug and my spellbinder dies are now working beautifully.  Just thought I would mention this.

 My husband bought me my cuttlebug for my BD last year and I  love it!  I haven't had any problems using with the spellbinder dies but then I haven't used others on it except one of my friends used one of the large Sissix dies and it did great.  Sometimes I have to use a shim to help with the cut with the spellbinder dies, but other than that it's been great for cutting and embossing.

Hello Members

This is your Group Administrator here.  It's been awhile since I've been in here.

Since the last time I was here there was I think 28 members, well its grown since then.  So lets welcome all the new members here, and share with them our cards and what techniques we used to make them the way they are.

We still only have one gentlemen that has joined this group and that is Sean Fettermen, So to all the ladies that have recently joined Welcome and members if you know of any other gentlemen on Stamptv that loves using cuttlebug folders let him know that there is a group.

That is all for now, Happy Spring & Summer. I will be back time to time just to check out stuff.

See ya later!  :)
