Thank you so much.  I have had this cuttlebug for several years, and now I can finally use it the proper way!  I am so grateful.

Question, on your previous Video - you stated the order of: A plate/C plate/Image to be cut/Die/and the B plate.  But this Video you show A plate/B plate /paper/die/C plate.   Confused !!!!   Do you actually want the die to cut into the B plate or the C plate???    Help.

I like to work with my nestabilities in my cuttlebug

I was able to find the nestabilities embossing mat at Hobby Lobby.  Hope that helps.

Thank you for your clear presentation and for the little reassurances, like the sound when running it through and the cut marks. It really helps to know what to expect! I also am trying to find an embossing mat. I have tried Michael's and JoAnnes with no luck. If anyone has an idea where to find one, I'd love to know it.

Confusion dismissed! But where do I purchase the rubber embossing mat? Thanks Gina for clarifying the many uses of Nestabilities. You can own all the crafting tools in the world but if you do not know how to use them properly, what's the point? Your videos are awesome.

Thanks for this great video on the how to use the nestabilties on the cuttlebug .
I was wondering on how I could use them.
Comment by Danielle Hartle on March 13, 2010 at 3:58pm
this is the third and different way to stack the plates...this way, there is a different way in the cuttle bug instruction manual as well as a third different way in the directions on the nestibilities instructions when you buy the dies. makes me confused.

Thank you so much. ANYONE with a Cuttlebug (which to me is the most versatile of ALL cutting machines) should watch this and library it! It is a perfect explanation of how to use nestabilities with your cuttlebug. YYou are wonderful!!! Gail Spence
