So i started cutting one at a time and it is cutting through most of them. The sandwich I am using is first a cutting pad, the die with foam up, paper and then another cutting pad. Should I be replacing the top cutting pad with the crease pad? I am afraid that I will ruin my crease pad. thanks!
Yep you need your crease pad! It's consumable just like your cutting plates so you will eventually have to replace it.
See the first post of the .pdf file with a visual and also a link to a tutoral from Patty Bennett on how to use your crease pad.
