It also made me think when I had done it, this would be a great technique for a tag book-I think I feel a project for the New Year coming on....
I have all my samples in a binder along with samples of every nestie, stamp, marker, die, etc that I flip through for inspiration and take shopping to avoid duplicates. Rather than feeling it is a chore to maintain, I find it helps prolong the joy of a new purchase as I add it to my book.

I can just see crafters everywhere making their samplers tonight, lol.
Like you dogzruleca, I have also done folders with all my stamps stamped in, and a book I take shopping that has lists of pens, inkpads ( and everything else)- stops me buying something twice. Thanks Davesgram, I appreciate everyones comments, I have had so much fun, learnt so much and found so much inspiration on SCS -it's a fantastic community.

Default cuttlebug newbie with a question-

my DH bought me a cuttlebug for chirstmas (finally - hehe) - i was playing with it this afternoon. he bought me some embossing folders and a die cut hoozie.

the die cut thing is thin, so it apparently needs a C plate. do you recommend i get one? or is there a way i can add something to make it thicker?

anyother tips or advice? thanks!

I went into a Scrapbook store the other day and they had a great range of folders and had the same great idea. All the samples were on rings that you could flip through easily. They were all embossed with the metallic card though and I thought it would be nice if they had another lot with plain card, but still it was great to have the samples to help with my choice.

If I remember correctly, the Cuttlebug comes with A, C and two Bs. I don't recall having to buy a C plate. Recently I did buy two B plates because one of my is getting pretty bad. Have fun with your Cuttlebug, just don't try to force anything through it.

Unless things has changed, cuttlebugs come with an A plate, 2 B plates and 1 c plate.

thanks armadillo and RIRed2 --

apparently things have changed. i was reading some other post here on SCS and apparently he got me the new design -- apparently the newest one doesn't come with the c plate - just the a and b's. the book even says it's optional.

so -- would you recommend i get it?

Myself, I would recommend buying it with a coupon, don't know what a C plate costs, but I use mine all the time. Does the manual use the C plate in the sandwich for cutting or embossing? What does the manual suggest?

it suggests using it for cutting -- with thin dies.
i found a brand new - un-opened one on ebay for $9, so that's not to bad. sounds like i should get it - right?

I use a C plate and a B plate with the main plate always for cutting the nestabilites, fits for me beautifully.

I have just got around to labelling my embossing folders, why is it that other brands have a permanent folder name on them but the actually cuttlebug ones don't?
Now when I buy a new one I will put the name label on it straight away

I don't know what the C plates run or if $9 is a good deal but I would certainly get the C plate.

I noticed this- it's so annoying. I have also discovered that not all Cuttlebug folders emboss (raised design) the same way up. Mainly the side to have up if you want an embossed (raised) image has the Cuttlebug name/logo on it, BUT, a few have to be flipped over & have the name underneath to get an embossed image.I hope I'm explaining myself clearly here, lol.
What I mean is that as long as there are no words on a folder, you can use it to get a raised(embossed),or sunken (de-bossed) image, depending which way up you have the folder/cardstock. But the orientation is not the same for every folder- I discovered this yesterday doing my sample ring. So now I have started labelling mine with an 'E' on one side & a 'D' on the other. It doesn't matter if you are just using a plain cardstock, but if you've inked/stamped it, or the two sides are a different colour, it makes a difference.
I think thats really bad of Provocraft to stop putting a 'C' plate in the pack- ok,you only use it when using anything other than an embossing folder, but you'd think they want to make it as attractive a purchase as possible by emphasising its versatility.

I have the CB, and got some Sizzix impression plates (?), I think that's what they are called, for Christmas. I have B plates, C plates, A plate, and some plumber's gasket. Can I use the Sizzix without having to buy anything else?
Thanks for the reply, I tried to search here and found where I thought I could use shims and the plates, gasket, etc, without having to buy anything else, but I'm just not sure.

I use those in my CB all the time, I think it just needs a B cutting plate under it and the paper between that and the die cut.

LOVE the Cuttlebug tips on your blog!!! Also what a gorgeous batch of Christmas cards you created this holiday season!

I have a question. When you cut the embossing folder apart so you can use it anywhere on the page, how to you make sure it is aligned again?

Can you "feel" it nestle into place through the paper? Or do you create a new tape hinge each time on whatever side is best for that project before you put the paper in?

I have wanted to cut my folders apart for a long time but I have been afraid of alignment problems!

THANKS!

I once saw a video on Utube for cutting the small folders so as to use them in the center of a card etc but can't remember the exact name of it. I would be interested in seeing how to do it with the larger ones too if anyone has seen it done.

I thought in my internet travels I had seen a video on cutting embossing folders in half. I checked You Tube and Googled but found nothing. I think in the video the person then taped the folder back together so it could be used as it was originally purchased. It must have been for a specific technique or purpose but I can't recall. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Question How do I start a new thread?

When you can post, there will be a box at the bottom of the page that you can type in. As you are new, it may be that your registration has to be approved before you are allowed to post?
To start a new thread, you have to be on the main page, and there will be a 'New Thread' button.
Hope this helps, and welcome to SCS. There is also a page where new people can introduce themselves, that may be a good place to start, I can't remember what happened when I first came here, sorry.

Since you "posted" your question, I am assuming you can post in a thread. So you must be talking about starting a new "thread".

Jessica,
what is your question? Sometimes there is a specific thread you can go to and post that question. It might help to know what your question is.

Default Flower die

Does anyone know if there is a die out there that makes a flower similar to the little Prima type ones? I'm thinking of the ones that are only up to an inch big. I use a lot of this type and would love to make my own in my Bug.

I have a question.
I'm brand new to the cuttlebug. I just got it a few days ago. I've been buying a few supplies and waiting for my C plate to get here. YES, the C plate didn't come with it.
I tried to emboss an envelope and it cut right through it. How do I layer an envelope? I realize that it is TWO pieces instead of the usual one so how do I sandwich it?
Enjoying all the posts.
Thanks,
Susie

I just got a CB for christmas with a bunch of alteration dies. I was really suprised at how difficult
it was to cut grungeboard with the alteration dies. ( it was super tight!!) I have the latest cuttlebug. Does anyone else have this problem? Are there any tips or tricks I should know about?

I find it interesting to go back through the posts to see and reread all the hints and help again, it reminds you of things you've done and maybe not done for a while or something new that was missed.

90 pages maybe hard reading but worth the effort as all the hints and tips are here

Susie, what were you trying to emboss with? It sounds like you used a die, but if it was an embossing folder there must have been too much pressure and so you need to try a thinner sandwich.

I saw a Tim Holtz video on You Tube and he was cutting grungeboard. I didn't post it here because he was using the Vagabond.

I cut Grungeboard a lot - just did some with an on the edge die today. The sandwich is: B plate, die, grungeboard, B plate.

I hope that works for you.

Jan,
I used the embossing folder that came with my Cuttlebug. I used the sandwich that they explained in the little booklet that came with it.
I understand that it was TWO pieces of paper being an envelope and that is probably why it embossed so hard that it cut into it a little but how do I make the sandwich smaller when it asked for three plates?
Thanks for your help.
Susie

I have little Happy Birthday bug folders that I use in the bottom corner of envelopes all the time and have never had any problems with them cutting the paper. It's not as though envelopes are thick, so the two layer shouldn't have posed a problem. Maybe you could try using your "C" plate with a couple of shims instead of your "A" plate? Might be worth you asking Provocraft about it.

Thanks Jan. I'm waiting for my C plate to get here. It didn't come with the machine.
Thanks for your help.

I have had my bug for several years but cutting chipboard was difficult at first because it was tight. Eventually it loosened up a bit. You also need to make sure that the die is not on the front edge when you feed the sandwich through. Set the die back an inch or two and line up your other plates even when you feed it through. That will help a bit too.
