For those of you having problems with the SU doily die, it might be that the die is defective. I had to have it and could not get it to cut in my cuttlebug. Called my demo & she made some shim suggestions to try in my big shot (I have one of those also which I never use), but it still wouldn't cut. I took it to her house & she tried it in hers -- same problem. She could not get it to work in her machine. She also has the die & hers works great in her big shot.
I teach a monthly die cutting class & all the ladies have cuttlebugs. I know that they are not all 'equal' in how tight they are, so rather than have a bunch of frustrated ladies, I simply chose to replace the die with something else from SU (which meant I had to pay shipping, but I was OK with that).
It's a beautiful die, but not worth fighting with each time I use it. You may simply want to exchange it for a new one.
