I think I posted this elsewhere, but didn't find the answer...can Edgeabilities be used with a Big Shot? Specifically, since the Edgeabilities are 8" wide, how can I use them to cut the end of a 5.5" card. The gals from Spellbinders said they would tell how, but I can't locate that either. Any thoughts?

Default Spellbinders/nestabilities/Wizard FAQ

Thanks for the responce. I did watch a video and am glad I will be able to use my "bug". As I will only use them for cards, I should be okay and they also showed some good ideas how to use them for that purpose. Hope to pick some up in a a couple of weeks.

I have seen a card that somehow had the front folded and then half of it was cut with a nestability. It probably doesn't sound very clear I know, but it was very effective. When I tried I couldn't remember how it was done. Anyone have any ideas as to what I am talking about! Don't even know if I do actually! LOL.

I think I know what you mean, but I can't recall where I saw it.
Some one used a rectangle card the tall way . They folded it as usual and used an oval Grand die ( I think) and cut just the top and right side of the front so part of the inside of the card was visible.

Kazan does creative things like this maybe it was on her site.
Now you have me wondering where I saw it LOL

Yay! Thank you, thank you. I am sure that was the one I saw done, but I think that maybe with the card I saw, the girl who made it had folded that top half under and not back IYKIM. I will check that out next time I am in my LSS. Either way would look OK I guess. I will have to have a go at it now.

Just bought the new Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs - so beautiful! But how can I get the embossed paper out of the die without defacing it? I use a toothpick to push through the holes but it also puts a dent in the embossed place.

Put a piece of wax paper between the die and the cardstock. It will release from the die very easily. Some of the intricate dies need wax paper between the die and the cardstock.

Barbara - Thank you! I was concerned that the cut would slip and embossing would be difficult, but it worked like a charm!

I have tried a search and the answer is that there is no match - I have also glanced through several pages here with no results, so I am hoping some one has this information...
I just got the Spellbinder Spiral Blossom 2 - now I need a tutorial on how to make it look like a flower. Can you help me find one?

Here's one (by my BFF Heidi Blankenship) showing the Spiral Blossom 1 die ... it's the same procedure for doing the #2 die. Hope this helps!!

Here's one that shows the basic how-to in pictures. Hope this (and/or the other one someone posted) are what you are looking for.

In this tutorial, she cuts her own spiral but the construction is the same. Try wrapping the spiral around an embossing tool first just to break the paper fibers, then roll as she does. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yq_URjXDHDo

I made some with the Blossom 2 die out of craft foam and adhered the center with a glue dot, and added leaves cut with the Rose Creations leaves - they look amazing! (My granddaughter and I were sticking flowers on headbands).

Dorothy, were you ever able to figure it out? I got one and absolutely hate it!!! I have looked at a couple of tutorials and can't find one that has enough steps to clearly see what is supposed to be done. I have tons of SB dies, and this is the only one I am disappointed in. I took it to our "play night" at my LSS. She has one on back-order and neither one of us could really figure it out.

Luckily, I got it with a bundle pack through scrapace.com and the other set is the one I was really after. I hope you have better luck than I did. Will just be happy with my other SB dies.

Actually, Cindy, I have not gotten around to trying it yet. I am kind of like that - if I have something a bit intimidating I tend to put it off
Funny, we must have scored the same ScrapAce special - I have not used a lot of the others, either, but I know I will. I will be trying...!

Dorothy, I'm sure we scored the same Scrapace deal. Love that site. I have decided to put it away for now and continue to look for a tutorial I can understand. But the other set I got I cannot wait to play with that this weekend. I fell in love with them when I saw it on the SB blog. Way too cute. Good Luck with yours.

Hi. I was wondering if the Grand Nestabilities fit in the Cuttlebug or if they were too big? As well as the Borderabilities and Frameabilities? Sorry if this has been asked and answered---I looked, but couldn't find the answer.

Thanks.

Some of the Grand dies will fit - some are too big for the Big Shot, too. Your Borderabilities and Framabilities should be fine.

Does anyone know if the new Wonderful Wings Grand Shapeabilites will fit in the big shot? From the sizes listed on the web sites they look like they should, but they are listed as Grand Dies.

RE: ORCHARD HARVEST die set:

Cindy, I have not yet used the labels dies from the Orchard Harvest set, but here is one of several cards in my gallery which has the leaf dies:

With this one, I sponged the cs while still in the die.

Default using nestabilities with Big Kick Machine

Hi. I've been noticing that some of my nestabilities (usually but not exclusively- the larger more intricate ones) do not cut completely through the paper when I use them with my Big Kick machine. After I use the correct sandwich and pass them through, I often have to go at them with an exacto knife to release them. This is really annoying. Any idea why this might happen or what the fix is? Also, I notice a cracking noise when I roll them through. It sounds like the two acrylic plates on top are cracking, but after I pass them through and examine them, they're fine. Is this normal in the Big Kick machine?

Thanks,

The cracking noise is actually the paper cutting. The sound, which can be alarming, is okay and nothing to worry about.

Now, if you are having issues getting your dies to cut all the way thru, you may need to turn the die 90 degrees and pass it thru one more time. Different machines have different pressure points so every machine is different. I bet if you will give that a try, it will cut all the way thru.

Smiles (sorry it took so long for you to get an answer)

Has anybody used Donna Salazar's "Creative Pages Two"? The dies look so interesting, but just wondering if really it's worth the money... The examples and samples on SB pages look amazing as always, but once you get past that, well.... Any opinions? Thanks!

bluehorse - I work for Spellbinders so I know I'm biased but I really "personally" love Donna's Creative Pages Two! There are 11 dies in the set and lots of different things you can do with the dies beyond mixed media books! So much packed into this set...tags, tabs, pages, pockets, frames, a border... it's one of my favorite sets from the summer release! Hopefully you'll hear from a few others too!

IF my BIG KICK doesn't cut all the way through..I rearrange my plates and also just run it through the BIG KICK backwards. Seems to do the trick!

I buy my Spellbinders from Joann Fabrics or AC Moore or ucutathome.com that website has a 40% off club that is free to join.

Default Hexagon Pinwheel Top Box

Please, has anyone tried this die and offer any advice? I'm having a problem holding the box together. I thought that each petal would overlap and they would hold each other in place but they ping apart.

Thank you for any help

I watched this video a bunch of times to see how to put this together, too.

Debbimom, thank you so much for the info, I watched it a few times before I realised what I had been doing wrong, it works perfectly now. It takes three little flat chocolates quite easily.

Yes you can use the impressabilities with the Cuttlebug. One thing that helps is to lightly mist the paper before embossing. The misting breaks down the paper fibres a bit and aids in the embossing process. I usually like to ink the impressabilities also...gives a cool effect. I just got the new grand impressabilities...nice!!! but cant be used with the Cuttlebug. You need the Grand Calibur ( bought myself a birthday present...Calibur and 2 Grand Impressabilities and a wonderful wings die...all for $200 tax in...shipped free

Are these matting dies that you would like actually available or is it just that you wish they were? I am the same. Although I use a chipboard template to draw around I often don't seem to get nice straight edges for my background matting pieces. Often by the time I get them looking straight they end up a bit smaller than I was intending! LOL.

I have a very silly question. I dont have the dies with me so I cant test. When cutting, is the shape you cut the INNER or OUTER edge of the die? I hope that makes sens.
