Has anyone tried using the extended length sizzlet dies in the cuttlebug? I guess you would have to buy the long plates as well as the dies.

I tried it. It worked great. You do have to get the 2 long clear plates and the long white plate from sizzix. However, in the provocraft web site blog they show you how to do it with another set of Cuttlebug plates A and B.

Try this link:

http://www.provocraft.com/blog/index.php?bid=56

I found it easier to just get the longer plates instead of stacking 2 sets of Bug plates.

Hope this helps.

Default Sizzix Texturz

Has anyone tried using the Sizzix Texturz Plates in their Cuttlebug? They have some really cute designs, but I am afraid to purchase if they don't work.

Thanks!

So, I made up a chart on Cuttlebug Sandwich Stacks based on info I found on the boards, and PMs from users that had tried some unique things.

This list is NOT complete, but I'll add to it and repost if SCSers have additional findings. Hopefully, someone else will find this as useful as I have.

Enjoy!

NOTE: The Cuttlebugs tend to differ in space inside the machine, so be sure to ERR ON THE THIN SIDE when putting new stacks into your machine!

This is just what I was looking for. Thank you so much!!!!!

I finanlly decided to go ahead and get the cuttlebug (CB) last month and I was able to get it for 50% off and all the dies 40% off. But after getting it out and playing like crazy i wanted to know ow to use all the other company dies in the CB. Your information has been the best free gift! Thanks so much for utting this together and posting it with all of us. Your work and time are very much appreciated.

What do you mean by chipboard shim? I got my cuttlebug just a couple of weeks ago and haven't had a lot of time to use it. Glad I found this thread though. I will be subscribing.

If a sandwich isnt thick enough to go between the rollers and have even pressure, you may have to add cardstock or thin cardboard (maybe cereal weight). Follow the stack list that Cat posted here and you should be good. It really doesnt take that much pressure to properly work. Play around a bit and you'll see.

I have been bitten by bugitis. If I don't get a antidote soon I may die. I think I will be able to get the bug this week. I shall surely follow the presciption to use this little machine effectively. Thanks so much.

This will be my first attempt using a die cutter/embosser machine

I just got my Cuttlebug, and I have a question. When I put in a card front A2 size card stock,in the embossing folders, the resulting piece is smaller than a card front. What size paper do I put in to get a piece that fits a card front properly? Thanks everyone.

I don't know why they made it that way, but yes, it is slightly smaller than an A2. I find that if I am careful and center the design on the cardstock, I am happy with the results.

You should ask to speak to the manager if you are told that. I think the reason they tell you that is because they think it is a Cricut product, which listed as an exception on the coupon. The Cuttlebug and Cricut are both made by ProvoCraft, but not the same product line.

Smile Thanks!

Thanks for posting this chart. It sounds foreign to me but once I get the CB I'm sure I'll understand more.

However, what is a Wizard pad?

Thanks!

I'm hoping someone else will chime in to confirm what I'm telling you, or correct me if I'm mistaken in my understanding of what the wizard pad is.
I believe the wizard pad is a rubber or polymer mat. It's an accessory to the wizard die cutting machine. The mat comes in the Wizard charm embossing kit. I once saw the kit at my lss for around $10.

Thank you for your reply. I guess I won't need it in the bug if I don't use Wizard stuff.

Is there anyway to extend the life of the "B" cutting plates? I have only had my Bug for a month, but they are in bad shape already. One could break at any time. I am not going to love it so much if I have to buy a lot of plates.
Thanks.

I feared the same as the B plates get warped and cut up....my DH did make some plates out of plexiglass from Home Depot but they werent exactly the same thickness and i had to fiddle around with fun foam to shim them.

I bought a sizzix machine for $30 on creativexpress.com a few months ago and have the converter for it. Ergo, pretty much I only use my cuttlebug for the embossing folders now....much less stress that way

this is only a suggestion: I now use one B plate under the A plate instead of sandwiching dies in 2 B plates, i do this when i use a CB or sizzlit die. At least it keeps one fairly intact.....I dont think the embossing folder do much damage, but the dies sure do. That's why i am using the sizzix for cutting when i can. But there are some instances when it just cuts better with the Bug.

Make sure you use the dies according to the stack rule....CB and sizzlit dies with cutting surface UP when using the bug, DOWN when using the Sizzix machine

it will be interesting to hear whether anyone else is doing this and if not, rationale for not doing it !!

Probably mostly out of laziness, but I always use my plates the same way, so one side of each B plate is rather chewed up. And the one I use on top is very warped. Anyway, one day I thought I really should flip that warped one over -- BIG MISTAKE! I heard it crack as it went through the machine. At this point in time, it is still in one piece, and I flipped it back to the original position and run it through warped.

I don't have a problem with it cutting even though it is so chewed up. I mostly run cereal box chipboard through it. The dies I use are cuttlebug, sizzlits and the thick sizzix dies. And I run them all through cutting side up, so I can see whether or not a good cut was made.

Pam,

If you have the regular Sizzix w/the converter you can use the Cuttlebug embossing folders in that. I only have the Sizzix w/converter and that's the reason I bought it "used" for $20. Much cheaper than buying the cuttlebug or the plates.

In my experience, the Sizzix dies cut up the B plates faster than anything else does. And for me, they are harder to shift around, because they are so big. But there are so many wonderful images I can't get yet from cuttlebug! I went thru several plates right at first, but once my machine was a bit "broken in," the breakage has really slowed down.

So stock up on a few extras with your Mike's coupons, and keep cutting! It will get better! I've had my Bug since Christmas. I use it a *lot* for my personal projects and for my classes. I broke 3 plates in Dec/Jan, but only one since then!

I've heard of people using clear packing tape on the B plate when it starts to get worn, to reinforce it. That seems to extend the life a bit. Also, people are using their broken B plates as clear mounts for polymer stamps, which I thought was very clever!

Smile Fun Foam for Fiskars Texture Plates?

I just saw this recipe on the Cuttlebug FAQ forum: Cuttlebug FAQ

It was about using Fun Foam (I actually don't know what it is... but I'm going shopping tomorrow for it )... and yes, it's about the BigKick... but I am wondering if it would work for us Cuttlebuggers....

Here's what she said:
Quote:

So I came to SCS for some help. While reading through some of the suggestions I ran across using some kind of a rubber pad that plumbers use and then the light went on - fun foam. I have some thinner fun foam and here is what I did:

1. Open BIGkick multipurpose platform to the Tab 1
2. Placed Fiskars texture plate down
3. place paper down
4. place BIGkick silicone rubber down
5. place piece of thin fun foam down
6. finally place Impressions Pad down

Got the deepest impression yet with this sandwich. The Fiskars texture plates are thinner than the BIGkick Texturz plates so it was with fear and trepidation that I tried this same sandwich with the Texturz plate. It went through harder, but it went through and gave a nice deep impression. Woohoo here we go.

If this is not in the correct thread, please feel free to move it. Love this family of stampers!
Then she went on to say in a following post:
"I was so excited that I didn't try this method on SU paper. Needed to add a doubled piece of card stock and then the image came out beautifully. So after you put the fun foam in, fold a piece of card stock place it on top and then the last piece and run it through. Two things happen, you get a nice impressed image and your card is folded nice a crisp!"

Smile die cuts cut B plate

I had NO idea that my CB B plate would get cut up! I tried out my CB (after 6 months of it gathering dust since my initial online- it took too long to get to me purchase) with a CB die cut... and yup, I yelped "eeek!" when I saw the cut. I thought I had done something dramatically wrong! So thanks for addressing this here.... it made me relax a bit.
