I am anxiously awaiting replies to your post! I, too, am learning. Thus far, my absolute favorite is Decorative Elements, Beaded Ovals, S4-294. I use them a lot. Also would be interested in what kind of machines people like best. Isn't this great that we can share information like this?! Yea for SCS!

Hi Amy!

I may be a tad biased, but I love them ALL!
I always suggest basics (rectangles/squares/circles)for starters, but any of the labels line are great starters also.
My favorite labels at the moment are eighteen and fifteen/sixteen.
Circles and Curved rectangles are go to ones for me, as well as any of the big scalloped sets.

The label shapes are my absolute favorites and I use them all the time. Two great starter sets would be Labels One, which looks great as a square shape or turned on point as a diamond shape, and Labels Four which can serve for rectangular or oval images. I reach for these again and again. The lines are stylized but not fussy, so the will work with a huge variety of styles. There are also a lot of label stamp sets made for these shapes!!!

Then I would expand on your label collection, you won't be sorry!

I agree with everyone, but let me warn you, they are addictive! LOL. If I had to have just one set to start now I would get the petite oval set as I use that so much. I started off just buying one of sets, but quickly realised that you need the other 3 to go with it! At the time I just wanted one of each shape, but then it works out much more expensive in the long run when you eventually make up the full sets, so now I only get full sets. I personally prefer the petite scallop sets but that of course is a matter of personal choice. I have just bought the lacey circles and lacey squares, just love them!

On cards I use labels 4 and labels 5 all the time. They are my all time favorites. I use Fancy Tags to label pictures in scrapbooks. I also love the deckled ovals and rectangles. You just can't get enough of them.

Thanks for all of the suggestions so far. Sounds like once I get started I'll just keep finding more that I "need" to have.

And I love this sight...I found someone who was selling some Nestabilities and just bought 11 sets this morning! Hoping that I got a good deal by paying $95 (that included shipping) for them. I got circles small, double end tags, fancy tags, labels 1, labels 2, labels 4, oval small, scallop oval small, scallop square large, scallop circles small and squares small.

Any others that I can't live without???

Now I have to figure out how to hide the box from my husband when it arrives

Sounds like a good deal to me. Track the delivery on your package if you can and just beat him to the mailbox. Still chilly in Oregon so hide the box under your jacket - lol. Or, send him on an errand for something you absolutely have to have. Don't think of it as keeping something from him. Just think that you're doing him a favor. Trying not to aggravate him - lol.

Labels and the lacey dies are good starters, I have around 50 sets so its hard for me to pick my favorites. The Kaisercraft storage binder will hold over 40 sets when you start to build your collection. BTW I wuld consider getting one of the new motif sets (there are two in each set). I have already ordered mine

Thanks for the storage idea and for the shopping website.

And 50 sets...I'm impressed. And I'm impressed that your husband will buy them for you. Mine just rolls his eyes every time a box arrives.

Hi Gals, if you haven't checked out the Stamps Alive! site...DO IT! Talk about the best prices on the web. It's not the easiest way to order, but the prices are well worth it. Thanks Corrie, for sharing this! Yiikes, I will be on my way to 50 sets at this price!!!

One more question for you...which size Kaisercraft storage binder do you have? I was wondering if I needed the 12x12 or if I could get by with a smaller size.

Thanks again!!

I have the A2 sixe its around 6x9, I put two sheets of magnet material from the $ store in each poket and you can get 4 sets per pocket (2 on each side). Terry can order the binder and pockets for you, it is so more compact than CD cases.

Thanks again for the info! I've sent an email to Terri (thinking of buying MORE sets and the storage binder).

I'm brand new to nestabilities, and the Cuttlebug. I haven't been able to get a cut that didn't also have a little bit of the edge embossed, or scored. I'd like to be able to cut a shape and not have a line partly around the edge. I'm using the recommended Cuttlebug sandwich. What can I do?

The edge you are getting sounds like the embossed edge, are you using shims in your sandwich? If you don't want the embossed edge then take them out (I don't ever cut with shims).

Yes, that's what I'm getting, but no, I'm not using shims.

Well most of us had to run it through a second time to get the embossed edge if you want add some shims and it will be a bit deeper and you will probably really like it. I think your cuttlebug it really tight because mine doesn't do that till I run it through with embossing mats.

If you are using your A, B and C plates, perhaps you could try just using your A plate and 2 B plates and some shims. Just keep adding the shims until you get it to cut, but not emboss, it works with mine.

Thanks. I'll try that. Running it through with the A and two B plates did nothing, but I hadn't thought to try shims because I'm such a Cuttlebug novice. I've only owned it for a couple of weeks.

Default Frustrated!!!

Has anyone else had problems with Spellbinders and their order deliveries? My hubby bought me some dies from Spellbinders off my Wish List and I STILL haven't gotten them. Grrrr...

When I contacted Spellbinders, I keep getting run-around answers as to where the order is, if it's been shipped already or not, if it was billed to the credit card, and on and on. Needless to say, Hubby is very angry by now, threatening to contact the credit card company, and says he won't buy from Spellbinders directly anymore.

So, I'm STILL waiting to recieve my $100 order, STILL have no new dies, and now I need to locate another company where I can purchase them.

Any suggestions?
Maggie

I'd be aggravated too. Check your credit card account on line to see if you've been charged. If you don't have that already set up on the credit card site and don't want to do that, call them and ask them to check to see if there's a charge from Spellbinders on there. If you have been charged then you can get nasty and call them. Ask to speak to a supervisor and threaten them with reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and the Dept. of Consumers Affairs. It's just too bad that you might have to go that far. If they haven't hit your card yet, I would just call them and cancel the order and tell them why. Then shop elsewhere so you can get the things you want. I've found that very few companies bill your charge card until they ship but you never know.

I heard from at least two vendors that their orders arrived in the past week from Spellbinders, and some, like the leaves dies, are still back ordered. Spellbinders may be working on fulfilling the earlier wholesale orders before the more recent retail orders.

I finally gave in and got my first Nestabilities. I received a gift card to Hobby Lobby, so I used the 40% off coupon and got my first set for pretty much nothing. There are so many to choose from, but I decided on the Labels Eight, because I like the way that shape looks on all kinds of different projects. I have been playing around with it and figuring out how it works. I just received another gift card, so tonight I went back to HL and got the circles. I am sure that for Mother's Day I will need to add the squares and rectangles to my list.

Anyone know of some good sites that show projects made by using Nestabilities?

Your paper trimmer can do squares and rectangles. Go for the ovals next!

Right here on Splitcoaststampers - look in gallery - company galleries - spellbinders. They have great samples. Also I agree with the previous post. I have squares and rectangle spellbinders, but there are so many great labels dies, and other items that I would put the squares and rectangles off and go for some of the more intricut dies

Finally received my order! So happy to get them, but from now on, we'll order from another company and NOT Spellbinders directly. Thanks to those who emailed me privately with suggestions. We wouldn't have been so upset if Spellbinder would have let us know that: 1. the order was going to be late, and 2. why it's going to be late.

Well, it's done now and we learned a lesson.

I've got a fun new technique to share. A way to do faux letterpress with images you have die cut with your Spellbinders die templates.

Pop on over to my blog for a video and projects. http://http://kimberly-crawford.blog...ress-with.html

Good idea, Kimberly! You could use just about anything, as long as it isn't too thick! And you could ink it, even (probably be better if it wasn't chipboard). TFS!

Question Grand Calibur question

I jumped on the GC bandwagon this weekend, thanks to an AC Moore 50% off coupon! My question is this - can I use the sandwich upside down if I want to cut an image I have already stamped? I know I can tape it all down and turn it over, etc. but I'd rather just be able to lay the die on top of the image and run it through, like I did with my Big Shot. If I use the cutting pad on the bottom and the base plate on the top, what difference will it make?

Kimberly your link isn't working. I think you you pasted it twice. When I opened your post to quote I could see it. So I just used this much

For the Love of Paper: Video tutorial: Faux Letterpress with Images

and it worked.

I made one using your tutorial yesterday. My shapes didn't come out as crisp as yours. Any tips? Don't need a shim or two because it won't go through the machine. I tried. Sprayed the cardstock and that helped a little but yours is still more defined than the one I made.

If I use the cutting pad on the bottom and the base plate on the top, what difference will it make?
As long as you are making sure the cut blade of the die is facing the cutting mat it will work fine!
