hmmmm...I don't know Lorraine...I just used a shim of two pieces of cardstock and it worked out great. We did this is in a class I taught the other night. One person used a Cuttlebug, one a Wizard, and the others a Grand Calibur. They all had success. Wish I knew how to help. Maybe send me a PM and I can try to help.

Question Do I need the Wizard if I have the Big Shot?

I have both the Wizard and the Big Shot machines. But I never use the Wizard, because I find the Big Shot so much easier to use.

Is there anything that you can do with the Wizard that you can't do with a Big Shot? Maybe I am missing out on something!

thanks for your input.

I don't think the Wizard is still being made. Guess there were a lot of people who had difficulty with it and received no company help.

Oh, I didn't realize that the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders was replacing the Wizard. Thanks for the heads up.

So I'll revise my question: I know that the Grand Calibur can use larger thin dies. But other than that, can the Grand Calibur or Wizard do anything that I can't do with the Big Shot? They can't use the steel rule dies from Sizzix, right?

Right! The Grand Kalibur can cut larger dies but it can't cut thick steel rule dies like Bigz. The raspberry Wizard was their most compatible machine as it will cut most types of dies, but it won't fit the larger Grand Nesties.

I had purchased a GK but returned it when I found out that it was not a matter of them releasing a new set of sandwich plates to accommodate the Bigz dies, but that the roller spacing is actually too tight.

So other than not fitting the larger sizes in a grand die set, your Big Shot can do the same things. I am in the same boat. I only have room for one machine. I bought the extended plates for my Cuttlebug instead when they were 40% off at Joanns. I can cut many of the grand dies, just not the larger one or two in the set.

What I really want is a Grand Vagabond!!! My dream machine is a Vagabond that will accommodate the Grand Nestabilities!!! Tim, are you listening? Hahaha!

I used my Wizard to flatten bottle caps and costume jewelry I pick up at tag sales to use as embellishments. I don't think the Big Shot is able to do that.

Great idea! I have some old earrings that are too bulky to use on cards but would be fun for other projects.

What type of 'sandwich' do you use? thanks

Wow, thanks so much for this thread - very useful for someone about to leap into the nesties.

Could I just ask whether those who have the Grand Calibur are very happy with it? I already have a Big Shot and love it, but would REALLY like the grand nesties. Has it been a good purchase? (I am looking at scrapping as well as my usual cardmaking so I wanetd the bigger diecut shapes). I just feel a bit profligate having two machines ... Am I easy?

Meg can you tell me the sandwich for the Grand Nesties and the BSP? I just got my BSP Westminster yesterday (finally!) and my first set of Grand Nesties (Grand Labels 4) are on their way.....but I don't know the sandwich

Depends on how bulky they are to start out, but usually one white plate and the blue plate.

I haven't tried any of the really large Sizzix dies because I don't think the machine is wide enough to accomodate them, but I use Sizzix red and smaller green dies in my Wizard with out a problem.

Default Help with Grommet Tag Nesties

I have the Gina K All Occasion Tags stamp set and I also purchased the Grommet Tags from Spellbinders.

Can someone tell me do you stamp then cut? Or cut then stamp. Either way I think I will have trouble lining up the nestie or the stamp.

Please help me

Bonnie

Not sure if this helps, but I saw a utube video of someone using a Cuttlebug with Spellbinders dies and she used small pieces acid free tape to hold the die where she wanted it on the paper while cutting. I haven't tried it myself, so I can't say for sure that it will work but it might be worth a try. I'm interested to see what others have to say about it. I have trouble with the dies moving around when I cut them too so I usually stamp the image after cutting. But sometimes it takes me a couple of tries to get the image in the right place. If you find something that works, I'd be interested to hear it too. Good luck!!

I stamp the image first then position the die into place using some repositionable tape. I cut/emboss the image that way. It's super easy!

I use tape too. The tape I use is actually a low stick painter's tape (as in wall painter) The one I use is blue, and I can use the same pieces over and over and they do not mark the paper at all. I would find it extremely difficult to line a stamp up properly on a nestie after it had been cut.

I normally stamp and then cut. I tape the die down with mini Post-It Notes. However, I just looked at the stamp set your are referring to and the stamped image goes all the way to the edge.

I would use the Heartfelt Creations system . They cut a template first and use that to line up the die with the stamped image
Here is a video on how to do it
It is called "Matching the Stamps & Dies "
It is the bottom video on the list

Mine work fine. Roll it through once and then turn it 90 degrees and roll it through again.
I also found that these tags are so intricate that you need to put a piece of wax paper between the die and the cardstock to get the cardstock to release from the die.
Be sure your wax paper doesn't have any creases on it as those will transfer to the cut tag

We found you need to use the wax paper technique with the pendant dies too

What thickness are card are you trying to cut?
I've not had trouble with the intricate nesties but I do hate having to sit there and poke out the holes that cut but don't pop out, my desk looks like a confetti bomb hit it.

Alison, I don't think you can use Presto Punch dies in other machines. Here is a link to the Presto Punch FAQ on the Spellbinders website that explains why.

Default Vagabond help

I'm a bit confused as to what extras I need to buy in order to run my nesties through a vagabond. Looking at the Joanns site I can see some contenders, but not sure if they are the right ones (need a site that will post to my hotel as I'm coming from the UK to Florida on holiday). Thanks for any help, June

Here is a link on the Sizzix website for what you need to use the wafer-thin (Spellbinders) dies in the Vagabond. I have no idea about Sizzix.com shipping policies so no help there, sorry.

Joann's has the two items you need for embossing the Spellbinders once you have cut it in the Vagabond. You do not use the tan rubber mat from Spellbinders. Instead you use their texturz pad and silicone mat:

Sizzix® BIGkick & Big Shot Silicone Texturz Accessory | Joann.com

Sizzix BIGkick/Big Shot Texturz Accessory-Impressions Pad*| Joann.com

You also need the wafer-thin die adapter to do the cutting with thin dies like Spellbinders and Quikutz. I don't think Joann's has it in stock right now. I just bought a Vagabond and I finally located one in stock at BlueMoon, where I also got a set of extended cutting pads (6 1/4 x 14 inches) so I'll be able to cut long decorative strip dies and XL Bigz dies.

28 657160 Sizzix Solo Thin Die Adapter

28 655267 Sizzix Cutting Pad Accesory

I have to say BlueMoon customer service is amazing. I put a question in on their web contact form and someone called me within five minutes to answer my questions! Nice!

Last, this video from Tim is a must-watch as he explains how to use all these items to use the Vagabond with other company's products:

‪tim holtz - vagabond versatility‬‏ - YouTube

"get all of your questions answered right from the source. tim holtz demos how to use the vagabond with alterations as well as cuttlebug, spellbinders, and quickutz dies and folders..."

Enjoy! Can't wait for mine to arrive!

Default Fancy Tags - 2 question

I bought the Fancy Tags 2 set of 3 very cute tags, but I especially LOVE the 2nd one, which has an oval shaped center and I thought my small oval nesties would nest in the middle of the tag center and look great...however, the shape is different and I'm so disappointed. Do I have the wrong oval set or isn't there a nestie product that will nest in that tag?

Thanks for any help or otherwise, just letting me vent.

I have been wondering about the edgeablities also. I have a wizard. I bought the set of long skinny cutting mats a while back and haven't used them. Is that what I should use to be able to use the edgeablities in the Wizard?

Yes, I do. But I am biased. In all honesty, if you are looking to order a set or two, I would suggest Classic Scallop and Classic Triple Scallop. Beautiful sets, with timeless designs that you can use on any project.

The best part is, all the Edgeabilities work together, so you will be able to mix and match the Edger and the Decorative Inserts from every single set!!

Hope that helps.

Yep! Those longer mats were intended to cut the Grand Borderabilities (12" borders), but use them for the Edgeabilities too.

Keep in mind that you will only be able to create borders as wide as the mats that way. (just about 2")
