[quote=canada goose;17821471]Can any of the Arizona girls tell me which Michaels carry Spellbinders.

I suspect that Michaels has introduced the Spellbinders only into select U.S. stores as a trial run. At least JoAnn is carrying quite a large selection (although mine is curiously dividing them half in paper crafts and half in greeting cards).

Does anyone know if Spellbinders are going to put out a lacy edged oval? I have the circles and squares and just love them.

I live just outside Casa Grande, AZ and the Michaels in CG has spellbinder nesties. Not a huge selection though. Priced at $25 plus tax. Joann's online has a much better selection to choose from.

Hobby Lobby gets some of them and I try to buy what I can from them with a 40% off coupon. They won't have the newest ones until late Summer, but I have more time( to wait) than money LOL

When the Nestabilities first came out, I seem to recall someone (Ellen?) showing pictures of the different sizes of mats that you could get from pairing the small shapes with the large scallops or the large shapes with the large scallops... Does anyone know where that was? TIA!

Another quick question. The sandwich for using Nestabilities in the Big Shot calls for two Spellbinders tan mats. Does anyone know whether any of the Sizzix mats can be substituted... they have one that looks like it is called Texturz Silicone Rubber and another called the Texturz Impressions pad. Thanks for your help!

The Texturz Silicone Rubber should work. The tan mats are a bit thinner so you may only need to use the one Silicone one. Those would be used for the embossing. For just cutting you use this sandwich:

multipurpose platform
die, cutting side up
cardstock
TWO acrylic plates

I sometime have to put a piece of cardstock on top of that if the die is an intricate design.

Hi,

I am hoping someone can help me here. Is there a way to cut out your image and have a part of your image outside the cut area? For example: If I wanted to cut a bunny image out using my circle die but want to have the ears of the bunny coming out of the circle. Does that make sense? (I have a cuttlebug machine). Just wondering if this has been or can be done. Thanks in advance for all your help

And so was it possible? I wouldn't have thought so with Nestabilities. I usually cut out the image and then 3D it onto the circle, so would like to know if it was possible. I guess you could only run it through the Bug so far and then wind back again, that may work to some degree.

Totally possible - I do it all the time! You can find it here in the resource section. It's called the Out of the box technique, easy to do and a great effect.

How do you use the Nestibilities dies together--to get a double frame-I have a big shot and when I insert everything--when it comes out of the machine ---everything has moved. I read something about a magnet pad--What do I do..???

I tape everything down with the sticky part of Post-It Notes. I buy the small ones that are 1 & 1/2" by 2"
I have tried removable scotch tape ( blue box) but the pressure of the machine seems to make it stick quite firmly

I have a Cuttlebug and a Wizard. I use the magnetic mat in the Wizard, but I have not tried it in the Cuttlebug. I was afraid it may make the sandwich stack too thick for the CB

The magnetic mat is for the Wizard and sold by Spellbinders

I use a blue masking tape that house painters use. It works really well and the same pieces of tape can be used over and over, and I find that it holds everything just where I want it.

Is this what you're looking for - {capture the moment}: Nestabilities ?

Default nestibilities-spellbinders

Thanks so much about taping the spellbinders dies --you see I haven't had any trouble until I put the smallest die inside the biggest die to achieve a different look--the tape won't work for that so I'm going to have to cut each die one at a time or place a lot of dies on my sizzix at one time.. I wish sizzix would come out with a magnet plate....

I just tried the Wizard magnetic mat in my Cuttlebug and it works!

I think you are trying to cut a large heart shape with the smallest heart shape inside of it , correct?

Normally I would use 1 "B" plate and 1 "C "plate to cut Nesties
For it to work with the Wizard magnetic mat I used "2 B" plates ( no C plate)

This is the stack I used from the bottom up

3 cardstock shims
B
Cardstock
magnetic mat with both heart dies on it ( ridges up)
B
A

Play around and see how many shims you need. I always start with the "least number of shims" and keep adding them until it cuts

If it works in the Cuttlebug there must be a sandwich that works in the Bigshot.

You may need to substitute a chip board shim for one cutting plate to allow for the depth of the magnetic mat . Set your sandwich as you normally use it, minus one cutting plate . Then play by adding cardstock or chipboard shims one at a time until it cuts.

Hope this helps

Congratulations!

There is a larger cut area with the Grand Calibur, don't be afraid to send more than one die through at a time, I'm using mine today cutting 8 dies in one pass, embossing all in the second pass.

All of your Spellbinders dies will work in the Grand Calibur.

Spellbinders has larger dies now, the largest of which won't fit through the Wizard.

Enjoy!!

Is this true or not? The Calibur is for use ONLY with Spellbinders stuff, not Cuttlebug, Sizzix, etc. I thought I had read that.

I purchased a Grand Calibur in a haze at Hobby Lobby, probably the first one they had in stock. I was in an altered state - there it was, right there in the store, and I could use my 40% off coupon! Then I got home and came out of the haze and started considering what it could and couldn't do.

You CANNOT cut any thick steel-rule dies like the Bigz dies by Sizzix. The rollers are not far enough apart to accommodate these dies no matter what kind of sandwich you come up with.

They CAN accomodate thin steel-rule dies like Cuttlebug and Sizzlets, but they need a special adaptor mat that unfortunately is not included with the Grand Calibur. The mat that you need is part # W-025.
Here is the link: Raspberry Spacer Plate - Spellbinders Paper Arts - Spellbinders
The mat is small. When I spoke with Spellbinders customer service (which was fabulous by the way) they said they are considering making a larger version of this mat to take advantage of the larger Grand Calibur platform.

It is too bad that they have replaced the Wizard, which was highly compatible with all brands of dies, with the Grand Calibur, which is not.

I only have space for one machine, so I returned it. I want a machine that can cut Grand Nesties AND Bigz dies and is electric! I had been saving up for a Vagabond. Now I guess I am hoping for a Grand Vagabond, lol!!!

Yes they have. They said they will continue to offer parts and accessories for the Wizard but they are not making more machines. It is sold-out on their website, and they announced its retirement on this blog post in the note at the top:
Spellbinders Blog Blog Archive Spellbinders To DIE For!! Winter Release Blog Frenzy Day One!

Of course there are a lot of Wizards out there in stores, so it will continue to be available for some time through various vendors.

Might be a good time to grab one if you don't have it, as it will work with almost all dies. Nothing else embosses like it, except the Grand Calibur which has even MORE pressure but far less compatibility!

Hope that helps!

Sorry if this question has been asked, but here goes.
I have a ton of Nestabilities. I get a 'halo' around the cut edge on many of the sets. White paper looks dirty and I'm finding that I have to sand the edges of colored cs to get the flakes off. It looks like the die itself is leaving a residue behind on the edge. I don't use inks on the die so it's not that. The color left behind is the same color of the die. Please help, I'm getting really frustrated!

I have a few dies that does the same thing to my paper. I usually will take an old toothbrush and some cleanser (like bon ami) and clean them really good. If that doesn't help, I will add a sheet of waxed paper in my cutting sandwich - between the die and the cardstock - for just a few cuts and it really helps this too.

I contacted Spellbinders with this problem and was told that many people are experiencing it.

The woman said try washing them in mild soap and scrubbing them with a "soft" tooth brush. She also suggested putting a piece of tissue paper between the die and the CS, but that didn't solve the problem for me.
She said after multiple uses the paint usually stops flaking off. She also said they are in discussions with a different manufacturer who claims they can solve this problem

I just use my finger nail on all of the cut edges to remove the paint flakes . It is a tedious task on dies such as Fleur de Lis

I too have had a problem with some of mine leaving a bit of a dirty look especially on white cardstock. I have rubbed them over with white spirit but that hasn't helped much, so I will try the idea of using another thin paper over the top, even copy paper may be ok I guess.

Tissue paper works good for this,too. I found that out by accident today.....I ran out of waxed paper and had some tissue paper just sitting there...worked great and its cheaper than waxed paper!

I've only had this problem with straight edged dies, not the scalloped so I've been inking the edges to even out the colour of the marks. I will try tissue or wax paper next time.

I called CS and the gal had never heard of this problem. I'm glad I'm not alone!! It's so frustrating to use the dies only to have to clean up after them. I LOVE them, but if my patience were any thinner, I'd give up.

Try putting wax paper on your die before putting the cardstock on. Works like a charm! Before I had tried this, I had actually returned one set - lattice one I think. I just couldn't get the paper out!

Okay, I've been making cards for about 9 months and recently stumbled upon Nestabilities (not sure how it took me that long to find them!!). They are so cool! I haven't purchased any yet but I'd really like to. Does anyone have an suggestions on sets that you use all of the time for card making? And any that you find that you never use?

I've got Stampin Up stamp sets and I've only made A2 size cards. There are so many neat looking dies that I don't know where to begin. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
