There is a video that Memory Box did where it shows them using tape to shim intricate dies in areas that won't cut. Here is a link to their video page, scroll down to the one called "How to shim intricate Memory Box dies"

Hope that helps.

Yes, I have. I have a Memory Box die with a spot that doesn't want to cut. I'm thinking it's a defect in the die, and need to contact Memory Box. I have a couple of their dies, as well as the Flour de Lis die, you're talking about, and they all cut fine.

Thanks,
Sandy

Is the new Cuttlebug V2 any better than the original? I was thinking about getting one.

I'm new to die cutting and trying to decide whether to buy the sizziz big kick or the Cuttlebug.....any suggestions on the differences between the two ...want to use the die cutting to Make cards for my hand crafted jewelry that I make from polymer clay. And for embossing on thin sheets of baked clay.. Most of mu polymer clayats use the Sizzix big shot ... A fewer mentioned the Cuttlebug....can't decide and I only want to buy it once...did go into ACMoore with my 50 coupon. It could notable up my mind.. They had the red and white sizziz for $49 ... That would have made it $25 after the coupon... They wantedd$89 for the Cuttlebug ...all opinions welcome

I have been told the sizzix is a little hardier, which may be important with your putting thin sheets of baked clay in it. I have a red and white big kick and love it so much I bought a second to have on hand if mine ever breaks. I use mine for cards and scrapbooking and have used it almost daily since I got it in 2007. I have never had any problem with it. It cuts everything I put in it. I do have a grand calibur for the oversized dies, but likethe big kick the most. Good luck with which ever you choose.

Have not used the Sizzix but do have a Cuttlebug and love it. I ordered my CB online for $40 a couple of years ago but cannot remember the online place.

Smile Sizzix vs Cuutlebug

Thank you for your input about these machines....is the red& white Sizzix the older version and the perwinkle the newer one?

If it's this die: Paper Doily Sizzlits Die - by Stampin' Up!

Then the sandwich should be: A, B, die, cardstock, B

Vic....that's the one.......I thought I'd tried that will be try again.

I can get it to cut some of the pieces out but not all. I even tried to add a couple of shims. I'm thinking that maybe I need to get some new B plates as mine are so bad - after two years of use!

Thanks again!

Can I use the sizzix Flip-It dies in the cuttlebug and what would be the sandwich? I am in Malaysia and have limited access to crafting supplies. I am worried I might break my cuttlebug and that would be a disaster!!! Thanks in advance for your help.

You can use sissix dies in the cuttlebug. I use the c adapter plate. The sandwich instructions that are on the die package work fine. I haven't tried the extra large or bigs sissix dies. Does anyone know how they work in the cuttlebug?

Is there a list of materials that the Cuttlebug will cut?
I know that there is a list of some of the things that the
Big Shot with cut. Or are they both like the same as far
as cutting, and they will both cut the same thing? Thanks

They do the same thing. But I have a friend that has a sissix that I have used and it is more heavy duty than my cuttlebug but also heavier and more cumbersome to store and move around which is why I bought the cuttlebug instead. I dont know of any list of materials, to prevent any problems I would definitly research any materials such as chip board or vinyl. If you go to FAQ on cuttlebus on splitcoaststampers you will find a wealth of information! Go to amysings page. see below copied from her page:

Here is a comparison of Big Shot and Cuttlebug from Julie HRR's marvelous blog.

Here is a fantastic resource on the "sandwiches" you can use for all different brands of dies and texture plates, as well as other media. Cat's Fantastic Sandwich Stack List This is the place to find out which dies you can use. (Hint: pretty much all of them. Some will require a few extra accessories.)

When you die cut, it will leave marks on your cutting plate. This is normal. Eventually, your cutting plate will wear out (Provo Craft says it will do about 500 cuts). Then you will need replacements. You should be able to get those at a Michael's, or ask the online retailer where you purchased your Bug.

I broke mine a few months back and it was tragic! I did get a new one in Oz, easy enough, but I almost cry when I see the great prices our friends in the States pay!

Now I am ready to test drive!
Interesting to read more on this thread I started and interesting to see that there are more machines out there than I knew about! I think if you do masses of this cutting then a spare machine wouldn't be an extravagance. I have only used my new CB a couple of times so far but if I end up using it constantly I could be tempted to buy a spare, having lived through the tragedy of my previous CB's demise!

I haven't had the heart to throw it in the bin though as it is in virtually new perfect condition...just doesn't work any more!! Could not resuscitate the rollers.

Hi! After watching this video I believe that the flip its dies are too wide for the CuttleBug. They look like they fit snuggly into the BigShot - which is wider than the CuttleBug. If Karen Burniston is lurking around - she would know best. After all, she designed them

Pamela16, I was in the States in April and while in either Jo-ann's or Michaels one day they had a Cuttlebug on special for $45! I have kicked myself for not buying it as a spare! I could have put it in my hand luggage and got it home that way.

The cuttlebug will cut through most of the same material the sizzix bigshot will. But it depends on the dies you use. Wafer thin dies won't cut through thicker items. The bigz dies and such will.

I have the Rosette die and I tried last night using it for the first time. It didn't cut at all. Here's the sandwich I used, Die, paper, spellbinder crease pads, "B" plate and then I cut some chipboard as a shim and the thin chipboard that comes with the die as a shim too. It didn't work. I was bummed. Do you think it may be because of the paper?? It was just some scrap I had to see how the die would work. Any advice will be appreciated.

Hi! Just saw your post...not clear about the sandwich you used...I use the A plate, B plate, die with cutting side UP, paper or other material, and then C plate. This has worked for me even with the more intricate cuts. With thicker cardstock or foam, etc. you may have to pass it through twice. In that case, I sent it through and then roll it back to be sure of cut. Hope this helps! Blessings to you!

Is this for the Tim Holtz or Stampin' Up! die? I guess I should have said that it was for Stampin' Up die. I forget that there are other companies that have similar dies too. Thank you for responding.

This is the sandwich for Spellbinders and most dies that I use with my CB and it works every time.

Starting at the bottom: To cut only
A Plate
B Plate
Card stock
Die face down on top of c/s
C Plate

To Emboss:
B Plate
Die with c/s attached
Spellbinder pad or other brand on top
B plate
** You may have to add a shim on top of your last B plate.

Hmm, well I am stumped. I will try a different paper and see if that helps. I have yet to have any problems with the cuttlebug and any dies. Don't it figure, I've been wanting to use this and when I do I actually have an issue. Thanks for the help!!

What I have read is that each machine has a different tension to it. My CB is about 5 yrs. old and pretty well broken in so I guess when it's time to get a new one the sandwiches might change. This goes for all machines, Spellbinder, Sizzix, etc.

I don't understand why you used the crease pads?

I use A plate, B plate, die facing up, card stock & then the C plate. I use a Cuttlebug. That is my sandwich for ALL thin metal dies. Good Luck!

I agree with several of the responders. The C plate is for cutting, the crease pad is usually for embossing. In this case - you want to cut. I've done the rosette die on my cuttlebug and on my bigshot. You'll love it once you get the sandwich correct. GL!

I thought I had to use a crease pad for the die to get the folds to score better. I didn't even think of not using the crease pads. Now that I think of it, it makes sense. I didn't use a crease pad for the milk carton die. Thank you girls for your help. I will take this as my blonde moment. Now I will have to wait till I get home to try this.

Is it the Rosette Bigz XL die from SU? If so that sandwich for the cuttlebug would be: B plate, the die, card stock & then another B plate. I thought you were talking about a thin metal die...I just realized it could be the thicker die.

Yes it is the SU one. I am still giggling at myself for overthinking this die.

Hi ladies! I have looked through here and, while I saw the same question that I have being asked, I could not find the answer. I have a thick red sizzix die and am wondering how to use it in the Cuttlebug if I can. If this is possible, could someone let me know which plates to use? I have looked on You Tube also and can find just about every sandwich except this one. Thanks!!

I apologize - the A plate is not used with the thick dies. I should have waited until after my nap to answer. LOL Anyway glad you tried and had success.
