Pretty pathetic, I know. Is it ego that I think they will remember me, or a total lack of self esteem on my part?

Default coupons

my nearest hobby lobby and michaels are 1 1/2 hr. drive from me. so whenever i get an email with a coupon i save it in my mailbox in a folder i created and named "craft coupons". then when i do make a trip to the craft stores i just look in my "craft coupon" folder and see if any of them are current. (and delete the expired ones) i make sure to print out more than 1 coupon per store just in case i decide to make it an overnight trip or i have family come with me. this time i enlisted the help of my almost 19 year old son to buy something for me with a coupon.i could tell he was uncomfortable in line with a set of nesties. but hey when opportunity knocks......but i did give some thought to getting in line again with a different checkout. the lines were long and i dont think they would have noticed.a sale is a sale.

I wish my HL would stock more cuttlebug items because I go there often and use the coupons but I've already gotten all the items from my wish list that they actually stock.
I also wish they would carry a wider variety of punches, especially when they have there 50% off sales.

Can you Cuttlebuggers tell me what store or website has the latest, the newest, Cuttlebug folders out there? I've spotted a few cards with some new ones in the gallery this weekend. I'm getting ADDICTED. Thanks!

Ellison and Provocraft used to be in a partnership in the US to make Sizzix. Then a few years ago, they had "breakup" lawsuit. Then Provocraft came out with Cuttlebug and Ellison took back the Sizzix brand.

So yes, Ellison is reliable. They've been around a *long* time!

I'm sorry if this has already been asked before, but I didn't read through all the threads.
I have the cuttlebug and love it. I haven't had any trouble with any of my embossing folders, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the folder/die set combined for birthdays. It's the folder that has all the candles on it, along with the die that has the large candle/sayings.
The problem is everytime I use the emboss folder it wrinkles the paper. I thought it might have to due with the weight of the cardstock/brand, but I have even used my su supply and it still wrinkles. It doesn't seem to matter if I put the open end of the folder through the "bug" first or the folded end, it still wrinkles.
Has anyone else had this problem and do you know if there is a "cure" or do I have a bad folder?
Thanks for any help!!

I have this folder but had yet to use it......I just tried it and if the paper doesn't fit inside the folder it doesn't wrinkle but it does wrinkle if it's bigger than the folder. Hope this helps,

Thanks Sharri, I'll have to retry. Does it work like your other folders though? I can place a folded card in my other folders with no wrinkles. But if I put a folded card in this particular folder, it wrinkles. I guess I'll just have to "layer" with the candles! Thanks again for your help!!

Quickkutz border dies in cuttlebug

I recently purchased a big special edition Holly leaf border die made by Quickkutz, and was really hoping I would be able to find a way to run it through my cuttlebug. I bought the extended platform and plates that sizzix has, but sadly found out that they are not wide enough for this die. They are only about 2 inches wide... I'm not aware of cuttlebug having extended plates- does anyone have any suggestions?

Dear Desperate: (I've always wanted to write that!)

Have you considered 2 sets of the Big Shot plates? I know that's what some are using to run the Sizzix Bigz XL thru their Bugs. It might be worth a try! Other than that, I would think you'd have to upgrade your machine.

Hope you find something that works.

I was wondering if it matters which way you put the folders through the cuttlebug? Does the folded edge go in first, last or doesn't matter? I don't want to crack it.

It shouldn't matter which way you put it in. I usually put the fold at the top, but I've done it other ways, too, depending on what I was embossing.

Default new A plate

I just treated myself to a cuttlebug and I'm confused. Is the new green plate an improvement to the white A or replacement? All I can find is photos of the white one. Anyone else have green and what's with the honeycomb design?

Default cuttlebug FAQ

I bought my cuttlebug about a month ago and it had a green A plate with honeycomb on the one side. I also had wondered about that but haven't had any trouble with it. My friend bought a cuttlebug from the same store about 2 weeks later and hers was a white one so I don't know why but yes I have the green one also.

A friend just bought a Cuttlebug and it has a green A plate. It has a warning sticker to be placed on the SMOOTH SIDE of the plate that says " turn over " It also says you MUST ALWAYS have the HONEYCOMB side UP when cutting.
She contacted Provo Craft and they confirmed the green honeycomb side must always be up ( the smooth side on the under side s/b against the machine) when cutting. They didn't say why they changed it.

Well, I'm certainly not a "Cuttlebug engineer" but it sounds as if they are trying to build a little "give" into the sandwich stacks for the CB. The original A plate that I have is pretty rigid, and the other plates C and B, are hard acrylic. The Bug makes quite a cracking sound when you crank some of the dies through. Lots of people have cracked their B plates.

If the new A plate has a honeycomb design, it might have more give in it, and less chance for all the other plates to crack.

Whoops! I also have a green A Plate, but missed the warning about having the honeycomb face up and have been using it with the smooth side up. I'm glad I have subscribed to this thread! Thanks for the info!!

I have a green plate too and didn't see the warning. I always use honeycomb down, it simply made more sense to me. I've had great results with it, and no cracking or anything, so i'm wondering if it really matters?

curious... i'm going to go read my instruction manual now!

ETA:
My green plate has the 'A Platform' sticker on the SMOOTH side. Meaning that I would presume you put the smooth side up, then your other plates on top of that. The honeycomb side has nothing written on it anywhere, and I have no warnings anywhere on my plates. The instruction maual doesn't have anything either, and the pictures look a lot like the white a plates, not the green ones. It makes more sense in my mind to have the smooth side up, and my results have been 'cuttlebug-perfect' using the plates this way, so I'm not going to change anything!

I'm still confused, but oh well!

I remember reading somewhere on here about how to cut and emboss Nesties in one pass using the Cuttlebug. Didn't write it down anywhere, of course, but now am prepping for a shoebox swap and needing to cut and emboss 100 shapes. Could someone point me to the correct place?

You are welcome!!! I was glad to help. I've tried it with one layer of a cut up Ritz cracker box and it came out perfect. The best part, my B plate did not crack a bit

Default Fiskars Texture Plates

OMG!
Ok, so i've had a bunch of these for years, i got them when I got the 'scrap boss' oh so many years ago, and never used them. I got a cuttlebug a few months ago, and bought a second set of these at the same time, because I had heard that you can use them in the cuttlebug! I tried, and it didn't work AT ALL! then I re-read the sandwich stack, and realized I needed the rubber mat for it to work. I've been waiting for it to come in at my LSS for over a month now, and it finally came in last week! I tried it with the fiskars plates, and although it worked, I was slightly dissapointed at the depth of the impression. It just wasn't very crisp. It was sort of cool for a 'hint' of texture, but not really for a good, solid, embossed background. But I still thought it was a nice look for some cards, and left it at that. So this morning I was making a card for my mom, and I wanted to use the 'leather' plate to replicate elephant skin. I put my cs through, and then when I looked at it I realized that the edge was off the plate, and didn't have any embossing on it. Not Cool. But I didn't want to waste a perfectly good card front. I had read somewhere that you can mist your paper with water before cuttling it, and the result would be different, so I wondered if I could mist it and re-cuttle it to 'fix' my mistake. I did, and WOW! Not only did it 'replace' the previous texture, but the new embossing was SO MUCH CRISPER!!!! It's almost as crisp as using the cuttlebug folders! I was so amazed! I experimented with a few of the different texture plates, and they all worked REALLY well when I misted them! After cuttling I just used my heat tool to dry it out, and VOILA!!

Sorry to ramble, but Man, I'm excited!! I have 8 of these plates, so 16 different textures, and I was worried that I wouldn't use them, and now I know I can and will!!

Oh, and the stack I used is as follows:
Plate A
Fiskars Texture Plate
Cardstock (Misted on side facing plate with water)
Tan Embossing Pad (Wizard)
Tan Embossing Pad (wizard) - Yes, I used both of them
Shim made from the back of a notepad - think thin chipboard
Plate B

Hope this helps out someone, and I hope I'm not repeating what someone else has already posted!

I tried it with the fiskars plates, and although it worked, I was slightly dissapointed at the depth of the impression. It just wasn't very crisp. It was sort of cool for a 'hint' of texture, but not really for a good, solid, embossed background. But I still thought it was a nice look for some cards, and left it at that. So this morning I was making a card for my mom, and I wanted to use the 'leather' plate to replicate elephant skin. I put my cs through, and then when I looked at it I realized that the edge was off the plate, and didn't have any embossing on it. Not Cool. But I didn't want to waste a perfectly good card front. I had read somewhere that you can mist your paper with water before cuttling it, and the result would be different, so I wondered if I could mist it and re-cuttle it to 'fix' my mistake. I did, and WOW! Not only did it 'replace' the previous texture, but the new embossing was SO MUCH CRISPER!!!! It's almost as crisp as using the cuttlebug folders! I was so amazed! I experimented with a few of the different texture plates, and they all worked REALLY well when I misted them! After cuttling I just used my heat tool to dry it out, and VOILA!!

Sorry to ramble, but Man, I'm excited!! I have 8 of these plates, so 16 different textures, and I was worried that I wouldn't use them, and now I know I can and will!!

Oh, and the stack I used is as follows:
Plate A
Fiskars Texture Plate
Cardstock (Misted on side facing plate with water)
Tan Embossing Pad (Wizard)
Tan Embossing Pad (wizard) - Yes, I used both of them
Shim made from the back of a notepad - think thin chipboard
Plate B

Hope this helps out someone, and I hope I'm not repeating what someone else has already posted!
Thanks so much for that post! I have been trying to find out how to emboss using fiskars. I just need to ask... what is misting?

Thanks in advance!

Hi! Misting - I have a small spray bottle that I got at the dollar store that is filled with water. It sprays REALLY FINE and I just spray water all over my cardstock. if you don't have a spray bottle, you could also use a sponge. You want it to be quite damp/wet. I sprayed until the entire piece was shiny with water, just to be sure.
HTH!

I have a cuttlebug and was wondering if the SU deco.strips fit and if I have to buy the SU deco.strip cutting pads?

They will fit, but you'll need the longer cutting pads and spacer to make them work. The Bug plates aren't long enough.
