Question Magnetic platform pros & cons

Hi
Can anyone let me know which magnetic platform for the Big Kick that they love or hate? I think I need to bite the bullet and invest in one.

I was so excited for this until I saw the pacemaker warning. My dear hubby has a pacer so I'm going to stay away but it sounds like a great idea.

I got the Lifestyle Crafts Genius Platform because I was tired of my cutting pads getting cut up and warped. I hate it when the cuts in the pads get embossed into my paper. The ones for the Genius look more like self-healing cutting mats and the ones that I saw during a demo had been used a lot and hadn't warped or gotten cut up. I don't think the magnetic pad is as strong as the Sizzix one, but it works fine for me.

Kathy,
I am not a doctor, but I've read that the magnets have to be close to your chest in order for it to affect a pacemaker. Check with your doctor or do research online, but I would think if you were using the magnetic pad in a separate room from your husband it would be fine.

I purchased the magnetic pad and now I have no way to use it. I thought that it would be the same size as my cuttlebug pad but no it is a smidge wider so now I am stuck with a pad that I cannot use unless I buy the big shot and I am not about to do that because I already have the cuttlebug and a cricut expression. I hope nobody else made the same silly mistake that I did.

After I saw the last post, I realized I didn't say that I use the Genius pad on a Vagabond. I just tried it on my old Cuttlebug V1 and it is too wide by just a little. I read somewhere that the Sizzix magnetic pad is also too wide for the Cuttlebug, so you need one of the Sizzix brand machines.

If you are talking about the Stampin Up magnetic platform for the Big Kick or Big Shot, I finally got mine! Unfortunately, Stampin' Up is still on backorder for these platforms but my really sweet Upline got me one for my birthday today!!
I have spent a good part of the evening playing with it and it is stinking COOL!
The magnet is really strong so I can put stamped sheet of cork down and put the framelit over the stamped image on the cork and it just snaps right down. It doesn't move during the rolling process at all.
I tested it on cork, coaster board, 110 lb card, cotton fabric, denim, felt, burlap, fun foam, metal/foil sheets (the same foil made for vintaj) unsure of the gauge, though.
Hardest part was trying to pick the metal sheet cut outs off of the magnetic platform, but a pair of cutter bees tweezers got them up.
Like I said, I love mine, but mine is from Stampin Up...although I do believe Sizzix makes both magnetic platforms.

Yes, Sizzix makes the magnetic platform sold by SU. They also make one without the SU logo. Same platform, just branded differently. The Sizzix Magnetic Platform -- with or without the SU logo -- is awesome!

With a large enough order, you can buy the SU magnetic platform for 50% off. (Load up on the neat SU-exclusive Framelits & Thinlits to use with the platform and you'll be well on your way!)
I will check it out. I didn't know Sizzix sold direct. thanks

If your Big Kick is still under warranty, buy the Sizzix brand platform. Otherwise, Sizzix isn't responsible for equipment damage and/or machine replacement if problems occur.

Despite my cancelling the order the Lifestyle Craft genius platform was shipped. I am returning it. Unlike the Sizzix you cannot place the die cutting side down.

Yes, Sizzix lets you order directly from them. Make sure you check their clearance tab for really good deals. I got a Snowman 3D Pop Up die, original cost was $39.99, the Outlet's price is $19.99 and an alphabet set of sizzlets that was $149.99 for $19.99, the alphabet's name is Pep Squad.
I have bought a lot of my dies straight from Sizzix. One of the main reasons is they will ship out the new dies to you immediately whereas the description tells you to check your local craft store in October (or whatever month).
I got the Vintage Scale die (with free matching embossing folder) and 2 brand new Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers dies arrived today (Mini Apothecary Bottles and Mini Feather and Inkwell) and they aren't in stores yet.
I see that Karen Burniston has a bunch of new Pop-n-cut inserts out too!

This may help you too, if you go to a site (you have to register for it, but it is worth it) called, "Retailmenot" and type Sizzix in the search box, you will see a list of coupons that Sizzix has available but unadvertised. I used one for free shipping on my Tim Holtz dies. I used another of their codes for 25% off an Amazon order last month. I love that site!
I hope you enjoy browsing through Sizzix.com

The Stampin Up/Sizzix magnetic platform works great. Only drawback is that it has about a 1 inch border that has no magnet, so the center magnet will pull your die in at times as you set it. I was trying to be conservative of my plastic cutting plates and use every area of it, and it would not let me place the arrow die at the edge of the plate. One more thing, Don't throw out your multi-purpose platform, you will still need it for embossing folders and thicker dies, like my cuttlebug leaves in a square...can't remember what they are called.

I've used retailmenot, but never thought to look for Sizzix. Thanks for the hint. I wound up ordering the Magnetic platform from SU this morning. I want the ability to put the die cutting side down.

I tested the lifestyle crafts platform last year and felt that it wasn't strong enough so I never bought one. I recently got my SU platform and it's great. yes, there are gaps between the magnets but it's only a problem on the smallest of dies and it's not that big of an issue.

One thing to note is that you need to make sure your clear plastic plate is flat. If your plate is warped it doesn't sit flat on the magnetic platform and the die won't be held in place. I used crystal effects and glued a new plastic plate to my platform. It's working just fine and I'm not tempted to use that plate for anything else.

Can you use the SU magnetic platform in the Big Shot with Spellbinder dies? Or is it strictly for Thinlits and thin card stock?

I preordered this from Marco's some time ago - the most recent update is 'shipping in Sept. 2013' to us - I'm really looking forward to getting this

Looks like the Sizzix Magnetic Platform is on backorder everywhere, anyone know where its available now at reasonable cost and shipping?
I should have preordered but have missed the boat.

SU magnetic plate arrived today, so far so good.
I am going to search for a self healing pad that I can shim to the thickness of an acrylic plate. I'll let you know what I find & if it works.

I got my Sizzix magnetic platform yesterday. (Preordered my magnetic platform from Cut at Home) I had a small Olfa self healing mat that fits through the opening of my Big Shot.

To cut a wafer thin die I found this sandwich worked for me:

Thin die Adapter
Magnetic platform
Self healing mat
Card stock
Die - cutting side down
Clear acrylic plate

Think I will like this magnetic platform. The magnetic 'pull' is strong even through the self healing mat. I like to fussy cut. Also, the die needs to be cutting side down if you are using a coordinating die with your stamped image.

P.S. I also have a Cuttlebug so have all the plates.

Another sandwich that worked for me with my Big Shot:

Magnetic platform
Self healing mat
Card stock
Die-cutting side down
Cuttlebug 'C' plate

I finally got my Stampin up platform yesterday and I love it! I love being able to position multiple dies without having them move. My cutting plates are pretty bowed but that did not seem to be a problem at all. If there is a downside to the magnetic platform, I haven't found it yet!

I have had my SU magnetic platform since they first came out- I put it on my first order! I have been in love with it ever since. I have used it almost everytime I have crafted!
The smallest dies will move a bit and grab to the nearest magnet but I let it move and then position my paper and framelit. Works perfect! I have gotten much better cuts for my stamped items than ever before!!!

I do have pictures on my blog if anyone is interested...I won't link here due to board rules and I am a demo - but it is pretty basic and easy!!!!!

The self healing mat I had stashed in my drawer with a cardboard shim underneath it works perfectly!

I didn't have a problem with the spacing of the magnets until this morning. I'm working on fall cards and using a non-SU die for a small branch. When I put the die on the paper on the mag. platform, the die started spinning because the die couldn't decide which magnet to grab onto. It was kind of funny watching it spin back and forth. Not an issue, just a little funny.

Not sure I get the use of the self-healing mat. Is it to use instead of a crease pad?

I'm also unsure of why you need a self healing mat - I only used my platform once and didn't use one ----and it was fine. . .

I use the self healing mat instead of an acrylic plate. No bending and it works like a charm

Hmmmmm...now you have me wondering....I purchased the Genius platform with the two self healing mats. I didn't like the platform. It's way too long. They should shorten it some. So I purchased the SU Magnetic platform. Love, love, love it. It's perfect! However...I'm now thinking that I can get my DH to cut down the Genius self healing mats to fit the SU platform (it's only rubber, right) and I may not need acrylic plates for cutting and warping again! I must go play and try that "sandwich" out.....

Okay... Soooo... I tried different layers with the SU Magnetic Platform. Since I wasn't using the Genius self healing mat and magnetic platform, I tried the thicker mat with the layers of (1) SU platform, (2) then die (face up), (3) paper and the (4) thicker self healing Genius mat. Too thick.. wouldn't go in Big Shot. So then I tried the same with the thinner mat...not thick enough. So then I popped on one acrylic plate (Big Shot) and it worked like a charm! So my sandwich is (1) SU Magnetic Platform; (2) die--face up; (3) Paper; (4) the THIN Genius self healing mat; (5) Big Shot Acrylic plate. I'm sure the acrylic plates won't curl anymore. WooWooooo...

I wouldn't think you can cut the magnetic pad. I am going to try to cut the rubber mats that came with the Genius Magnetic Set. It came with two sizes of self-healing mats to use wit the magnet pad.

On the Magnetic Platform (bottom) it states 'This is not a cutting surface', that means if you do not put an acrylic plate/self healing mat between the cutting portion of the die, the MP will be cut into. The cardstock/DSP still needs an acrylic plate/self healing mat between it and the MP.

Use the Magnetic Platform like you use the Multi-Purpose Platform.

I'm loving the magnetic platform. Greatest thing since slice bread! Don't know why it took so long to come up with it. I use it in a big shot, but I would think it would fit in a cuttlebug, but haven't tried it.

I am using a self healing mat on top of the SU magnetic platform instead of an acrylic plate. I love it!

another positive vote for the SU/sizzix magnetic pad -- I finally received mine and LOVE it!! No more trying to keep my dies in place with post it notes - it really works well.

I have all three machines, Cuttlebug, Sizzix and Big Kick. The magnetic pad does not fit in any one of my machines. I do not understand why it was sold as the new wonder product when it is not able to work in any machine. I agree. I am now stuck with a product that I paid a fair amount of money for when on a fixed income.
