I need to replace my B plates before they break. I'm thinking of buying the extended plates instead of the normal ones. Then later the extended A and C (money doesn't grow even when waterized...) because so many dies now need these long plates.

I can't figure out the real length of those extended plates and I wonder if it is ok to use them with the normal A and C plates, in term of balance and without removing the paper from the die before it goes through the machine.

I didn't want to invest in the extended plates, so devised something that works for me using the regular size plates. I have some of the longer dies for borders, etc. like the ric rac die that is about 9" long. I just place it on my cardstock and run it through, then reposition the uncut portion of the paper and the die so it's on the plates, and run it through again. It takes an extra step, but works just fine for the longer dies.

The extended plates are 13 inches long. They would probably work with your normal A & C plates, but I'd worry about warping them. Then you'll have problems with the dies not cutting. I've never tried to mix the plates when I've used the machine, so it may work just fine. And I'm far from an expert so hopefully someone who has been using a Cuttlebug for years will have a better answer.

I use a TH die in mine but have to run the bug back and forth a couple of times to get it to cut good usually.

I have TH Tattered Florans and Elegant Flourishes and they work beautifully, I do sometimes use one shim if cutting lighter paper.

I sell Cuttlebug embossing folders and I have lots of them. Remember that the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders also work in your Cuttlebug. Other folders that are amazing are the Crafts Concepts, Crafts couture and Darice folders

Some dies are defective. I have ran across this with both Spellbinders and Sizzix dies. Many of my customers either return them to me or they call the company direct and the companies are very good about replacing them

I always feel like I'm the last person to figure things out, but, With a die like THIS one, how do you get the 1000 or so hearts in place without individually gluing each one?

You could very carefully lay a piece of vinyl or repostionable tape or transfer tape over the (die) cut paper .... remove the die and the "positive" part and then transfer the hearts to the cardstock (or whatever background) of your choice. Take a look at how folks who cut out letters with digital cutters transfer the words from the cutting sheet to their final destination. It may take some practice - but it's do-able. I've thought about using vinyl with some of the intricate butterfly dies I have. I hate to throw away the pieces! Oh! and I often apply the glue before I cut - by using adhesive paper or running paper through a Zyron before cutting. By the way - the previous poster has it right imho - but there are always things outside the box!

FYI: I went to Joanns the other day and I was looking at their cuttlebug embossing folders they had on sale and clearance. I purchased some and when they rung up it showed that they are clearanceing them out for .99 cents on march 11.

I have all the Cuttlebug alphabets but want a larger alpha die set. I see there is a Serif Essentials Bigz 655128 out there. Does anyone know if that would cut in my Bug?

I don't own that particular die set, but they appear to be standard size Bigz dies. They should go through the machine without any problems. You won't need to use your A plate. The sandwich that usually works is B Plate, card stock, die (cutting side down), B Plate. Hope that helps, maybe someone who has the die set can verify but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for you.

Hi all,

By chance, I just came across a fotobella.com YT video showing a new 'Universal Magnet Platform Die cut' which works in all embossing machines including the Cuttlebug. Anyone else ever here of this company or Lifestyle Crafts?

Here is a link to the YT video:
New Universal Magnetic Platform for Die Cutting from Lifestyle Crafts - CHA Jan 2012

Just when I purchased the 13" Cuttlebug platforms another product (which might be better) comes out, geez.

Best, Mollyz

Default Quickcutz Dies

i am looking for a larger set of Alphabet dies. I have all the Cuttlebug ones but want something bigger, about 2"tall. I am looking at the Quickctuz Alpha dies, English Rose and Diesel. Does anyone know if they work in the bug and if so what will they cut? I have also looked at a Bigz die called Serif Essentials and wondered about that.

Hi all. Just accidentally killed my lovely hardly used 3 yr old Cuttlebug and need to replace it. But maybe I should look at the Big Shot. Have seen some old comparisons but can't seem to find a more recent one. (I'm failry new to Splitcoast so still figuring out where everything is). I'm in Australia and can't find much info on local websites.
I know I can used folders and dies from CB on the BS, but can the plates be interchanged? Just thinking that I'd have spare ones if I stick with CB but they'll be useless if I can't use them on a BS. And as I have to pay well over $100 here for either machine I need to economise where possible. And death of CB was my own silly fault! Grrrr....
Thanks, Pam

Jan, I've used Quickcutz dies in the Cuttlebug & they cut very nicely - it was just a matter of having the correct sandwich of plates. The Quickcutz are fairly thin so probably would only cut card - not sure about chipboard. I only have access to the machine at my craft group so can't check it out now.

Most dies from all companies seem to be interchangeable with the only caveat being that the machine must have a wide enough entrance to allow them through. I picked up a big old red brick Sizzix & it theoretically can't cut Bigz dies because they're too wide. A friend's husband fixed that - cut them with a jigsaw or similar & now I can use them.

The Bigz also work in the cuttlebug and should cut heavier material like chipboard & thin metal. The blades are quite deep & that is a large part of what determines what material it can cut through.

Pam. I can't help you with the plates but I'm wondering...if the CB is dead, is it worth taking to it with screwdriver in hand & doing some internal surgery. At this point there's nothing lost, plus I have a vague memory of someone who managed a repair.

It's fairly basic mechanics - there's nothing electrical to pose a risk. If you find a broken part, take it to a handy friend or local hardware store or even look for something lying around the house that might be a workable substitute.

Pam, had something similar happen to mine and called the manufacturer Provo Craft or go on their website. They were extremely helpful so would suggest to give them a try.

Default Cuttlebug

Thanks Caterina. I emailed Provocraft but they didn't pay attention to the details in my email (like I was in Australia and it was out of warranty!) So I wrote again and got the same standard email, same wording, again suggesting I call the American phone number. So I've given up on that one!

Am resigned to having to pay over $100 for a one one now, or look at the Big Shot. I did see a second hand CB on sale on Gumtree (do you have that in the States, like ebay sort of?) so I might try that first. If that CB dies too, then it will definitely be the Big Shot!

Cheers,
Pam

Default Cuttlebug

And thanks Elizabeth as well. I actually thought I might do that. I can wield a screwdriver! If it isn't working anyway, nothing lost! I did get my brother-in-law to cast his male eye over it but he wasn't successful either. Have read on some forums that other people have had similar problems with their CBs so it could be a design fault, on the older model anyway.

I accept that it was my fault putting the too fat sandwich through, but as there are so few working parts (wheels or cogs in the left side) I thought it would be an easy fix.

Oh well, as I said to Caterina, I'm resigned to parting company with that chunk of money. No vouchers or specials down here I'm afraid!

Thanks again.

Pam

Pam, I have just returned from a holiday in the U.S.A. and got to go into a Jo-Ann and Michael's store. Jo-Ann had a special on Cuttlebug machines, $45! I was tempted to buy one as a spare! LOL. I bought the Serif Essentials die and the Quickcutz English Rose and they both work fine in the bug. English Rose won't do chipboard though, but will do foam sheets. I was very pleased with them. I actually got them from Amazon before I left. Their postage is so much cheaper than ebay sellers or craft stores over there. Had a ball in Jo-Ann!

I bought the Serif Essentials die and the Quickcutz English Rose and they both work fine in the bug. English Rose won't do chipboard though, but will do foam sheets. I was very pleased with them. I actually got them from Amazon before I left. Their postage is so much cheaper than ebay sellers or craft stores over there. Had a ball in Jo-Ann!
You lucky devil Jan! You should have stuffed it into your suitcase, 23kg limit be damned! If I'd known what was going to happen to my CB I'd have bought one when I was there last August! (And squeezed it into my case along with my coffee machine from Europe!) I got to visit a Michael's store (and went a bit nuts, as you can imagine) but don't know Jo-ann's, Next time! Especially with our exchange rate! Oh well, I have now bought a new CB through ebay and was happy enough with $119.90, not much better for us poor Aussies! Hope to see it this week.

Hi Bookster, yes you are in the right place on this forum. Ask away and any questions will be answered in no time. Or if you have a few days to spare, go to page 1 on this forum and start reading! LOL. I actually did that with a couple of forums when I first started here at SCS and was so pleased with all the info. If you do go back over old messages, take notesor note the post number, as if you don't when you find something that interests you it is hard to find again. Enjoy your Bug.

Default Jan R on my new cuttle

Thank you Jan. I ordered it from Amazon so it is not hear yet. For the life of me I could not find one but I got a good deal and free shippping! I am excited waiting for it and wanted to do some reading up and maybe go ahead and buy some die cuts so I can use it right away! I bookmarked this forum. I appreciate your reply

You are welcome Bookster. Remember too that any brand dies or embossing folders will work in the bug or so I have found.
