Thanks flemings.

Yes, you can use the Bigz dies in your Bug. Sizzix has a disclaimer, though, that the Bigz and Bigz XL are designed for the larger Big Shot machine, so they may damage a Cuttlebug.

Anybody use the Bigz on a regular basis? Any damage to your bug?

I was going to order some of the Bigz dies from SU and called the company to see if they would work with the cuttlebug...the lady told me they are too big to fit in the bug .She told me she had tried some in hers and they would not go through.

I understand that Bigz dies fit in cuttlebug,
but BigXL may not.
According to some of the posts here, the cutting pad can be trimmed 1/8 inch to fit the cbug.
I have the pillow box die and no problem in my cbug.
I have just ordered the scalloped envie die.
I guess if my cbug breaks, then I will have to break down and get the big shot!

Hmm, the Bigz dies work in my 'Bug, too.

But I can see that perhaps the Bigz XL might not ... they appear to be too wide for the 'Bug.

But I'll try anything twice ... and if the Bug dies, I'll just have to spring for the new Big Shot. I want a Hello Kitty one ... lol!

Thanks for the information. I also have the Cuttlebug and do not wish to buy the Big Shot just yet. I am very happy to learn that some of the SU dies will work.

Yes, they do. More info here:

http://paperpossibilities.blogspot.c...asking-if.html

And I crank it all the way through and then back and that seems to help make the impression a little deeper.

So is there a special "sandwich" order for using the SU Sizzix dies in the CB? Do I need A, B, and C plates?

I note members saying they use plumber's rubber gasket instead of the tan embossing mat when using nestabilities in the bug. Do any of the Aussie members know where we can get that in Australia. I have asked at major hardware stores and they have no idea what I am talking about!

Google "YouTube Cuttlebug" or "YouTube Cuttlebug embossing"
On the side bars there are a gazillion videos on how to use it

Me too! I just got mine yesterday. Couldn't resist that 50% off. I tried all the embossing folders I have already and it worked just fine. I think trying to use all the different dies is more complicated, so I haven't bought any of them yet. Does anyone have their favorites that they would recommend?

Don't rush in and buy too many dies to start with. I bought a lot (when the Aussie dollar was good from your Ebay) but I find I don't use some very much. I jumped in and bought all the alphas, but find I just mostly use Olivia, Red Tag and Hippy Chick. I use the cut and emboss butterfly, sliders, 3x3 circle, flowers and vintage the most. I have just ordered the 3x3 square too. A friend had a couple of Xmas ones I want to get eventually, they are the combo ice crystal and treetops. I also have the combos "brthday wishes" and "Welcome baby" but I use the embossing folders from them more than the dies. I have lots of the embossing folders and still a couple more on my wish list. I guess a lot depends on what you are doing in the way of scrapping or cardmaking as to what you would use. I am really hanging out to get some Nestabilities when I can. I hope this info helps you.

hi I'm an aussie too. I use a silicon baking mat that I got from the Reject Shop for about $5. I cut it down to size so I got more than one mat. I also use it for the Fiskars texture plates.

Default Sizzix BIGZ TOP Note die cut from SU on Cuttlebug

I love my cuttle bug. I am also a SU demonstrator. I don't have alot of use for the Big Shot, but there are a few dies I like. I wos wondering is anyone out there has tried the Bigz TOP NOTE die cut in there cuttlebug machine. Also, any of the other die cut/embosslets that SU offers. I am mostly concerned with the BIGZ TOP NOTE die cut though.

PLEASE let me know.

HI!

YES!!!!!! I use the BIGZ Top Note die ALL the time in my Cuttlebug and LOVE it!!! I also use the Pillow box (I had to cut the crease pad to fit the Cuttlebug. I use scissors to cut it--very easy!) and snowflake die in my Cuttlebug. They work GREAT!!!! The extra long ones will fit, but the plates are too wide. I need to find a way to cut the plate down so I can use the extra long die in my Cuttlebug. I hope this helps! Enjoy!!!!!!

I would like to know if there is any truth in the fact that the cuttlebug is to be no more.as Someone on uk site as said that the maker of the cuttle bug has gone bust and that provocraft have no other makers in the pipeline, I have contacted Uk sellers and they do not seem to know much about this just that there is a problem with getting stock. I would like to know for sure as I saved up for while for my cuttle bug and if it is true need to stock up on dies and folders while the uk still has them
many thanks Jan

What is the "sandwich order" for the Cuttlekids dies? They seem to be thinner than the regular CB dies and the package says that they work best with the Cuttlekids machine.

does anyone know how to get replacement parts for the CB?? I sold mine to an online friend across the country and it arrived pretty beat up- the side piece- opposite the handle side is cracked...

i am wondering if Provo Craft would sell/give me a replacement piece...

Are you sure it was caused by shipping?
There are two woman on the Cuttlebug Chat ( part of Cuttlebug spot) that have had the same part break. One has a picture of her broken bug under the thread "Busted"
If it is a manufacturer's defect then I am sure Provo Craft will replace it. The machines are warranted for 1 year.

Default Quikutz 4 x 8 alphabet dies

Has anyone used these dies in a Cuttle Bug? They have a great sale at Cut at Home - buy one, get one free.

Thanks!

Yes you can use Quickutz in the cuttlebug

It's the same sandwich that you would use for spellbinders dies.

See the very first post in this thread to a link with a printable sandwich list.

I have used other QK dies in my CB - but I was concerned that the size of the 4 x 8 dies wouldn't work.

It says they require the 12" platform for the Revolution.

Saw something either in this forum or on a blog, about using embossing folders and for example, an oval scallop nestie--wanting to leave a blank space in the embossed area. I thought I remembered how to do it, but I didn't!!! Now I can't find it. Can someone direct me.
Thanks,
Cindy
