Both will work in the cuttlebug. You just use different sandwiches for the different types of dies. But if you want to cut thicker items, the sizzix originals & bigz dies will do that, whereas the thin dies don't.

I have both the SU Top Note die & the set from spellbinders. The Top Note is alitlle different than the SB's and it makes little lined notches around the edge of the paper. They both will work in the cuttlebug. The SB dies are good to because you can make the layers with it. Hope that helps you.

Hi bellasaluto
I have both those die cutters that you are mentioning. I have the cuttlebug and they both work on the cuttlebug. I love both. I really can't tell you that I prever one above the other, but I would say that you get a bigger variety (value for money) to use when buying the spellbinders, because they have more than one in a set. Good luck with your decision.
Enjoy! I would gladly help you if you need any more advice.

Felt sandwich,

I posted a question in "Tool and Product Talk" then saw this thread and felt it was better posted here. I apologize for the double post but I couldn't figure out how to deleted me previous post.

Anyway, I am looking for the sandwich to cut felt on my Cuttlebug, using a Cuttlebug die. I tried A, B, die, felt B and it was too fat. Tried two B plates still no luck. Tried C and two B and still no luck. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Devina - what do you mean by "no luck"? did the sandwich fit, but not cut? or did it not fit?

start your stack with the A plate. then B plate, with die cutting edge up. felt with a thin cardstock (to help with cutting cleanly). top with another B plate. report back and let us know the details.

The sandwich did not fit, too thick. My Cuttlebug is able to cut coasters with no problem, but I could not begin to get my sandwich to go through with the felt in it, and I was using a small (approx) two inch square.

Thanks

Try replacing plate A with plate C + thin chipboard (cereal box) and/or cardstock, then plate B, die, felt, cardstock, & plate B. Vary the layers of chipboard and/or cardstock until you get a sandwich that works.

Thank-you, didn't know how much I could switch plates around. I will definitely play around until I come up with a winning combination.

A question for all those bug/Su pros:
Does anyone know how to run the SU texturz plates through a cuttlebug? I checked the awesome chart at the start of this forum, but don't see the texturz plates? Do I need to buy the SU silicone rubber plate and the impressions pad?

Yes!!! You will want that silicone rubber mat from SU. Let me go check my list.

Okay I keep this list with my Texturz Plates

Plate B
Rubber Mat
Cardstock
Texture Plate
Plate A
2 cereal box shims

Since there is variation, if you don't get an impression, you can try 3 cereal box shims.

Hi, there, I purchased mine on line at www:morethanink.com. I don't know if it was a particular special they had, but I got it for $49.99. I thought that was a good price. Good luck. You will absolutely love it, when you get one.

JoAnn's and Michael's have 50% off coupons once in a while and they will honor them for Cuttlebugs (but not Cricuts). You can even get them online at joann.com and use the coupon. HTH

Thanks for the info! I was looking at Lakeside Collections and they have one for 44.95. this is what it comes with

•The PVC and metal Bundle set comes with an impressive die-cut machine (10" x 6-3/4" x 5-1/2") with a compact, fold-n-store design that lets you store it in less space than other leading machines; set also includes:
•Spacer block
•2 Cutting pads
•Thin die adapter
•Party die (features 10 shapes)
•User's manual

Is this a great price? I think that shipping would be around $10.00. I thought that maybe if I bought it somewhere else - it might come with more stuff for the $???

Typically, it's about $80, full price. With a 50% off coupon, that would bring it down to about $40. It comes with the machine, spacer block, 2 cutting pads, Thin die adapter, users manual, and a pack of "Celebration Stamps" which includes 4 2x2 embossing folders and 1 2x2 postage stamp die.

Why do some Michael's honor the coupon for Cuttlebugs, and not others. I've asked them (here in St. Louis), and they will not honor. Thanks

BarbieP, this happened to me too here in Seattle. I was furious, because the front desk kept insisting it was a Cricut product (but, in fact, it is a Provocraft product). I finally called the 1-800 custermer service number on the website, and sure enough, they honored it then. It took a little bit of work, but hey, 50% is a big deal! =)

I would suggest calling customer service and getting the name of whoever you spoke with. Then let the local Michael's know what you did and who you spoke with.

Good luck to you!

Michelle

I have not been able to download the .doc file. Have I been too impatient (I waited about 5 minutes and all I got was a blank page)? The little green bar did come at the bottom of my monitor. Is there something in my computer that won't let me download it? Sorry for being so "dense."

The best deal I have found is at www.creativexpress.com. They have Cuttlebug kit specials and the best prices I have found for embossing folders and dies. And they often mark down their prices significantly.

The recent server migration has caused uploads not to work so that's probably why you cannot open the file.

It's not just you.

My mother just got a CB and is addicted like me, so I was trying to download the sandwich files for her, too. Oh well. Isn't technology fun?!? I'm sure they will get the server squared away soon. We've all just become so spoiled by all the great stuff here!

Can the Stampin Up Texturz plates with the silicone rubber pad from Stampin Up (item 114615) be used in a Cuttlebug and if so, what is the sandwich? She doesn't have the Impressions pad.

I read they can in another thread. I think the sandwich is: the A plate, the Texturz plate, paper the silicone rubber pad and maybe the other pad they sell. I just bought one of the plates and it fits in my Bug, but I can get an even impression. When I read the thread, I decided to buy the pads SU sells. They also mentioned spritzing the paper a bit for a better impression. I'm sure someone else will correct anything I missed.

This is the sandwich I use, but it does help if you spritz your cardstock with either water or rubbing alcohol to get a better impression. I prefer the alcohol, since it dries faster and you don't get as much warping.

Oh yes! I should have said that, thanks! I just haven't been bothering to do it, and getting a decent impression. And I use regular cereal box shims but if your CB is a little more "loose" you might want a thicker one, like when you buy the giant boxes at Costco.... lol

For those who are wondering if you can...

I wanted to use the Movers & Shapers small magnetic dies without purchasing the expensive Bigz XL open die with the metal plate. So here are two different sandwiches I came up with.

OPTION 1:
4 pieces cereal box chipboard (since these vary in thickness, you may need to adjust)
Plate C
Magnetic Die (cutting side up)
Card Stock
Plate B

OPTION 2: (this one requires an extra B Plate)
Plate B
1 piece cereal box chipboard
Plate B
Magnetic Die (cutting side up)
Card Stock
Plate B
