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.

Default Fiskars Dies?

I just noticed online that Fiskars has a new machine for die cuts. Has anyone tried their dies in a Cuttlebug?

Does anyone know if there's an embossing folder that makes waves? Wouldn't that look great on a nautical card?

I have the older ones by Fiskars; they are blue. They do have a wave one. I have used it with my cuttlebug without any problem. You do have to add extra chipboard as a shim.

I don't have any problem cutting simple dies such as circles, squares, ovals, etc., it's just the intricate ones. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Please try using a shim and running through Cuttlebug a few times. Here is a link to our Youtube video with some tips on cutting our dies - La-La Land Crafts TV {New product - DIES!} - YouTube. Hope this helps.

Does the SU Tasteful Trim Bigz XL work in the Cuddlebug if you use the extended plates?

Does anyone know if you can use the Tim Holtz embossing diffusers in the Cuddlebug?

Lynn-

Yes, but remember to eliminate one of the 'B' plates. I think the sandwich would be: C plate
B plate
Embossing folder with c/s inserted
Diffuser

Anyone, please correct me I am wrong but this is the sandwich I use.

Exactly! The diffuser takes the place of one of the B plates.

I bought these at the weekend, and was going to try playing about with sandwiches later, so thanks for the one you've posted, I will be trying that one first.

I used the Holiday Frame Textured Impression folder last night (the one in the holiday mini) with Vanilla cardstock in the Cuttlebug. I got little creases around the edges of the impression. I tried it with other colored stock which is a bit heavier and did not get the creases. Has this happened to anyone and if so, is it because the Vanilla cardstock is a bit thinner?

Yes, that is part of it. The size of the fiber makes a difference too. you can always play with the sandwich and make it just a bit thinner to rectify the problem.

I have those plates too but don't need a shim. I do spritz the paper with water to get a crisper impression though. I do this with all of the texture plates from all of the companies. The Fiskar set of plates also contains a raindrop and scale (as in fish scales) plate. I purchased mine about 2 years ago and used a half off coupon so it was a great deal!

I have the orginal Cuttlebug and I have used it till I am having to shim a lot when cutting out Cherry Lynn dies. I am thinking about getting a Cuttlebug V2. I have noticed that the feed plate is a lot shorter than the orginal, also the handle is thinner. I have some shoulder issues when I have to do some serious cranking the handle. Has anyone purchaced the CBV2 and do you like it. I would be interested in the pros and cons of it. Thanks for your feed back. Joan

I too have shoulder problems, 2 surgeries and Fibromyalgia. I have a Cuttlebug V2 and love it. I haven't had any problems so far, it just takes a little getting used to with the handle folding in and out. Hope this helps.
