Awesome! Thanks so much Phillis! Now I just need find room in the good ole budget to order a couple (granted that will happen next to never since I just blew my budget last week-- hubby doesn't know yet.)

Ugghhh…I finally took my cuttlebug out of the box. It came with an A plate and two B plates. I stuck one of my Nestabilities in there and the things wasn't thick enough…what am I doing wrong?

Cuttlebug no longer comes with the "C" plate which is thicker than the "B" plates and is needed for dies such as Spellbinders.

Until you can buy a "C" plate try adding a few shims of card stock to the sandwich with the "B" plates . Start with 2 shims and keep adding until it cuts properly .

"C" plates are sold at Hobby Lobby, Joanns and I think at Michaels .

Hope this helps
Barbara

Default Try Amazon for C plate

I bought my C plate on Amazon.com. I use it in my Big Kick also instead of turning the base plate flap continuously when interchanging between embossing folders and spellbinder and other then metal dies, I use the B plate for embossing folders and C plate for the thin metal dies like spellbinders.

In fact, a smart crafter I know told me to remove the extra flap from the Big Kick base plate as it screws off and then it will be out of the way. If you use the C plate, the flap is no longer needed. Hope this helps.

Think of B for emBossing and C for cutting. You probably need a C plate, but you can add cardboard shims for the time being. The plates aren't too expensive, especially if you use a coupon. Do you have a Hobby Lobby near you?

Has anyone tried to use the Sizzix magnetic platform on a cuttlebug? I love my Cuttlebug. I have the original version, the one that comes with all the plates you need. I can't get over why they don't just include the C plate with the new ones but I digress. I love the idea of having a magnet to hold the medals dies. Just wondering if anyone has figured out the sandwhich with it yet.

You will have to purchase a C plate. You are not doing anything wrong.

Isn't the Sizzix platform too big for the Cuttlebug?

I have the cuttlebug and the Sizix and the magnetic platform from Sizzix is too wide to fit through the Cuttlebug. When I use the Cuttlebug, I just tape the die to the paper on the outside edge to hold it in place, and the sandwich for dies is A, B, & C. (I just remember C is for cut) to replace one of the B plates.

Bummer! That makes sense; I didn't think about the width. I was just hoping. I know the other Sizzix adapters for embossing with spellbinders fit. Oh well!

I usually just sandwich it on the cuttlebug. I don't use tape or anything but a magnet sounded pretty neat!

Thanks for your response!

I always tape my die to the paper too. I use the blue masking tape that painters use, it's easy to take off, doesn't tear and each piece can be re used several times.

Default Magnetic Vent covers

I haven't tried this yet myself but I have read elsewhere online, can't remember where , that you could try using those magnetic vent covers you can buy at like Lowes, Home Depot or maybe even Wal-mart. They shouldn't be too wide for the cuttlebug, just not sure how well they'd work.

Wow. I love that little B stuff. I would like to hear more when they are available. Hope you will post then. I wonder if the blank die storing system is good. Is that available yet?

Anyone know where to get a C plate for the original cuttlebug? Broke mine recently. Stores around here only have the C plate that fits the newer version.

According to CUTTLEBUG VS. CUTTLEBUG V2/? the same C plate should fit in both.

If you can't find just the plate. You might be better off buying the whole machine. This one is $41.00 but it does come with free shipping (looks like only in USA though) and you'd have back ups of the other plates:

Provo Craft Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine and Plates | eBay

Best of luck with finding what you need. It's too bad that the new plates are a different size. I have an old machine too & I've broken a C plate before. Fingers crossed I don't do it again!

Several years ago I recall reading a post by someone who went to Sheet Acrylic supplier and had plates cut for her die cutting machine .

She ( I think it was a woman) said it was much cheaper to have them cut than buy them in the stores.
If you have the broken plate so you can show them the thickness you need it may be an option.

Do a search either in your telephone book or one line for Sheet Acrylic suppliers.

You might also post another thread on the Tools and Products thread and ask if anyone has had plates cut for them at an acrylic supplier. Perhaps the person who posted this information will respond

Good Luck

Here it is on Amazon:

Amazon.com: Provo Cuttlebug Adapter Mat C 6x8": Home & Kitchen

The C plate is the same for the newer version Cuttlebug. But there is a longer C plate available. Maybe that's the one you are seeing in the stores. The width is the same on both plates, so will fit in the original Bug.

Default B plate "cook"

I found a great tip on Facebook today! It was a way to flatten old B plates that were bent and bowed. As it happens I had 4 such B plates that for some reason I hadn't thrown away and today my husband "cooked" them for me and now they are useable again. Don't really know how to paste the link but if you Google "Cuttlebug B plate "cook" it will come up.

I checked out that link and it took me to the one I was talking about. Imgur. I was doing some cleaning out in my craft room this morning and would you believe that I found another 4 old warped B plates! Why I had never thrown them out I will never know, I must have had a premonition about this "fix" coming along! LOL.

All the plates are available in the 13 inch length. They are for the long dies and strip embossing folders. If your A & B plates are 6" x 7.75" that's the size C plate to use.

They seem to have it in stock now so I might take a chance and splurge.

If you want to die cut, do you NEED the C plate?. Or can I get away with shims and using both B plates like they showin the manual??

I think you should bite the bullet and get the C plate. I haven't heard of folks using shims instead. It might work, but it would sure be a hassle to get the right thickness every time, and I think you would have inconsistent results, with parts not cutting through cleanly.

If you want to die cut, do you NEED the C plate?. Or can I get away with shims and using both B plates like they showin the manual??
I also suggest you buy the C plate.
The C plate is more rigid than shims of chip board or card stock so the pressure on the dies will be more consistent. This will result in cleaner cuts from your dies

Also the C plate lasts almost forever since I never cut into it . My C plate came with my CB and is 7 years old
