Thank you in advance
I just use the same sandwich that I use for the Cuttlebug dies and the Nesties -

from the bottom, A plate, C plate, cardstock, die face down, B plate.

I would either flip C plate & B plate, or flip the die over and put the cardstock on top of it. You don't want to cut into your C plate.

From the videos my impression is that they are cut the same way as all of the other cuttlebug dies. They are a little bit thinner so A, B, paper, die, C. They are also supposed to have the suggested sandwich written on the die.

I just found this document (Cuttlebug stacks), but when I try to view it, it comes up as 4 or 5 short lines of jibberish. I am not really proficient on the computer, but this is information I have been asking for for some time. Can you help me open the document ?
Thanks a bunch !

Are you talking about this one? Post #1 in this thread with the PDF download?

i'm thinking the Sizzix XL dies fit in the cuttlebug, but i don't have any... the XL dies are 6" wide.

Melody confirms that the Sizzix XL dies DO FIT in the cuttlebug - however, the Sizzix extender plates are too wide, so you'll need to use other extenders.

Cheryl -try saving the file to your desktop first. then, open Acrobat Reader, and File-Open the file. some pc's can't open the file directly from the post.

let us know if that works.

I believe the Sizzix XL dies will fit in the cuttlebug (snug fit), BUT the Sizzix plates do NOT -- they are just a tiny bit too wide.

However, there are now extender plates available for cuttlebug.

This is so awesome! It must have taken ages to do. Thank you so much. Hope you have some answers for someone who has used the cuttlebug extensively, but only recently got a few Quickutz dies. I found the sandwich for regular--guess what I have is regular--and the order is A, B, Die, Cardstock, C. Seems to me that the cutting blade would end up cutting my C plate with this order and that would not be good. Could I switch around the Die and Cardstock so that the blade is down and will end up cutting into my B plate that is already cut many times? I can't see any reason not to, but then I'm not a genius at this like you are. Your help is appreciated. Thanks!

I would think there should be no problem with that. I don't have any quickutz dies, but I flip all my other dies whichever way I want and don't have a problem. If you don't want to flip your die over, just switch the order of your plates. I NEVER cut into my C plate, because those cost more to replace.

Jeanne - i flip my stacks and dies all the time to make sure that i'm always cutting into the same plate. i don't think you'll have a problem. although, some dies are made to get pressure from one direction (i read that somewhere), so, i'd certainly CAREFULLY test it before using your favorite QC die

report back and let us know what you figure out.

thx.

Cat, thank you for putting this all together for us. I have a question.
Will you just update the first post whenever you make changes or additions, or are there updates here and there throughout the thread?

thanks for your sweet comments! several years ago i moved all my templates and list to this forum, because it is one of the few that allows edits to the original post. i would remove the file on the first post and replace it with a new one.

there haven't been a lot of edits in the last year or two... maybe i ought to think about that?

I did switch the plates, to A plate, B plate, card stock, die, C plate, and it worked fine, cutting into my B plate, (instead of A plate, B plate, die, card stock, C plate as stated on the chart). I also read the post following mine that asked about revisions and updates. Perhaps if you do an update, you could change the order of the plates for the regular Quickutz dies as the way it is stated, the C plate would get cut. Thanks so much for your hard work and your response.

As I reread my previous post, I realized that I did not switch the plates from the instructions, but rather the order of the die and card stock. The plates were in the correct order, but if the die was placed under the card stock, it would have cut the C plate. HTH

I've never seen them. Are they thin like spellbinders? or MFT or Papertrey? If so, then use the same sandwich as you would use for those.

What are BI's?

Here are some instructions for DIY embossing plates: Mel Stampz: Free-hand cut D.I.Y. Cereal box Cuttlebug or Pressure Embossing Plates

Mel Stampz: Custom Embossing folders!!!!! From Breakfast Cereal to Artsy Embossing!

A La Cards: DIY Embossing Plates...SO Easy!!

I also saw someone (sorry I can't remember who's blog) heat emboss an image and then use that raised image as a dry embossing plate.

Thanx for the awesome links! I used to subscribe to Mel's, but she was not consistent in posts, so dropped it~~she is outstanding however! I actually made a mistake asking about BI's---that was Big Impressions. I did go back and read the chart again, and you can used the Bigz dies in a Cuttlebug. This thread is a fantastic resource!

I've so loved having this wonderful chart for using my Cuttlebug and have found it reliable until today. I follow the last suggestion for embossing with my Fiskers Texture Plates with great results. Recently I purchased an SU! Texturz Plate and ran it through the same way as they are listed together. The first time seemed a bit harder, but the results were great. I turned the plate over and it seemed really hard at first then went easier until I got 2" into the design and my C Plate shattered. Obviously, it was too thick and I want to try something a bit thinner (when I get a new C Plate), but I'm always confused when "chipboard" is listed as an option. There are soooo many thicknesses of chipboard that I hardly know where to start. Then there is the problem of slightly heavier card stock that can make or BREAK the deal, too. Is there really that much difference between Fiskers and SU Sixxix plates? Help! Anyone!!!

I've so loved having this wonderful chart for using my Cuttlebug and have found it reliable until today. I follow the last suggestion for embossing with my Fiskers Texture Plates with great results. Recently I purchased an SU! Texturz Plate and ran it through the same way as they are listed together. The first time seemed a bit harder, but the results were great. I turned the plate over and it seemed really hard at first then went easier until I got 2" into the design and my C Plate shattered. Obviously, it was too thick and I want to try something a bit thinner (when I get a new C Plate), but I'm always confused when "chipboard" is listed as an option. There are soooo many thicknesses of chipboard that I hardly know where to start. Then there is the problem of slightly heavier card stock that can make or BREAK the deal, too. Is there really that much difference between Fiskers and SU Sixxix plates? Help! Anyone!!!
I don't have any Fiskars plates, so I don't know the answer to that question, but I agree that there are many thicknesses of chipboard. It is ALWAYS best to start with THIN! Where one person may have to use chipboard, someone else can get by with just a couple thicknesses of card stock. Your sandwich can also vary by what you are embossing (thick or thin). If you are unsure, start thin and increase bit by bit. As you get familiar with your cuttlebug, you 'know' the feel of what is too thick. Don't try to force anything. Experiment if you need to to get the right sandwich. HTH

Thanks. I was just so surprised that there was such a difference between the Fiskers texture plates and the ones sold by SU--especially since they were listed together on the chart. I will try again when I get my new C plate.

While without your C plate, you can probably still use them. Use a B plate plus extra shims (card stock and/or chipboard) until you get the right sandwich. A little less convenient, but still workable.

Wow, thanks. If I need to, I'll certainly try. I can get B Plates locally if I break one, but had to order the C Plate on line. Oh, the woes of living remote!

Does anyone know if the new Stampin' Up! Framelits and Edgelits will work in the Cuttlebug? And if yes, what sandwich would you use?

The framelits are like these Sizzix ones:
Sizzix Framelits | Sizzix.com

Thanks for your help in advance!!

Use the same sandwich as for spellbinders - plates A, B & C
