Help...... is there any special ways for removing dies from packaging..... I have tried to remove the tape or slide my paddle under the die but sometimes they are so stuck, that the die itself, has caused the die to bend...... I notice this when I go to use the die it has spots that don't want to cut....... is there any suggestions

The way I do it I think prevents the dies from bending.

I cut the plastic packaging. I remove the dies on the display board that they are taped to.
There is always a section that is NOT taped down . After I locate that I lay the whole thing down on the table with the dies down on the table . The front of the display board is facing up toward me .

I lift the display board and put my entire hand on the the dies and hold them firmly as I remove the display board from the dies .

I don't remove the dies from the display board I do it the other way around. I remover the display board from the dies .

If there is tape remaining on the dies I carefully remove the tape while hold the dies flat on the table.

If any adhesive residue remains on the dies I use Undu to remove it .

What ever you pull on will bend . I prefer the display board to bend not the dies .

I hope this makes sense .

I would like to use the Sizzix scallop pop up insert die in the purple Wizard. Not only does the edge cut, but the crease lines are cutting as well. I do have a crease pad, but can't seem to get the right combination to make this work. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi Lady Boz'

The notches are alignment indictors so that the curve can be centered. I think the outer ones are for the card base and the inner ones are for a slightly smaller layer.

I have a question about the matting dies I cannot find anything that shows JUST the A set or JUST the B set...is there anything out there showing how these look if you only have the one set? Does anyone have a picture in the gallery of a card made only using one of these sets? And if not...does anyone have anything comparing the matting dies to the rectangle or even the long rectangle dies? So confusing Thanks!

For a long time I only had the Matting Basics B and I used those on regular cards as a layer. The difference with these dies and the rectangles is the Matting Basics dies are proportioned exactly with the A2 size card (each going down in size by 1/4").

The rectangles are similar in shape, but in different dimensions. And the Long Rectangles are similar in shape, but really stretched out. Does that make sense?

Thanks, Michelle! So, no matter which set I buy, they will go down by 1/4"...right? I don't need both sets to have a 1/4" change in layer?

Edited: Here is where my measuring skills fail me. My A2 card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. To me, and when I layer my cards, I then go down 1/4" to 4 x 5 1/4. Next layer down is 2 3/4 x 5

When I look at the measurements for both the A set and the B set, neither of those measurements match what I consider to be 1/4" increments. Help please?

Yes with 1 set they go down 1/2" in size, so when they are cut and layered on each other the paper has a 1/4" border all around.

Then with 2 sets such as combining the LG and SM sizes or matting basics A and B- they go down 1/4" in size, so when they are layered the paper has a 1/8" border all around.

HA! I think I see it now. I am going down 1/4" but my borders are 1/8"...so for the way that I like my borders to be, I would need both sets. I think I see it now. Thanks!!!

I agree, I much prefer the 1/8" borders myself. So I have both sets for all my shapes. Good thing Cut At Home has monthly coupons!! Until I made the team, that's how I built up my stash!

Hi!
I just joined the world of Spellbinders. JoAnn's has them all on sale again, so I bought six of the Nestabilities sets.
I figured out a way to store them. I put them in old CD cases I use for clear stamps. I dug out my old Xyron 9" system that isn't support anymore and I rolled out some of the magnetic laminate and trimmed it to fit inside the case. The dies stick to the magnetic sheet so they don't slip out of the CD case, yeah...
I do have the tan mat. I picked up the magnetic sheet that goes through the cutting process. It's thin, like the tan mat. Can it be used in a cuttlebug? What is a good sandwich for this process???

Thanks

You can find all the "sandwiches" for all the machines out there on the Spellbinders website. They have info for the Cuttlebug as well.
Click into their "How To" tab, then into the "Product Instructions" tab. They have several PDFs you can open depending on what you need.

Here is the link:
Product Instructions & User Guides | Spellbinders

Go about 1/2 way down and you'll see Spellbinders Die Compatibility Chart.

I am so glad that I found this thread, even though many of the posts are from over a year ago. I have been having the worst time with some of my Spellbinders dies tearing when I try to remove them from the die and was about to give up when I read the tip about using waxed paper in between the die and card stock. Wow, it's almost magical how well that works! Thanks to everyone!!

I am having trouble using Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities in my old electric Bigshot Express. It is discontinued so on Spellbinders they give no sandwich instructions for this machine. It does not have the multi purpose platform like a regular Bigshot, just a flat platform and 2 cutting plates. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Question Spellbinder Majestic Circles question - I'm confused!

I recently bought a set of Spellbinder Majestic Circle dies and used the largest die in the set this afternoon for the first time. The largest die has pierced dots all the way around but they are outside the actual part that diecuts - which means that when I diecut the cardstock, I have a lovely wavy scalloped circle but the pierced dots are left in the piece of cardstock that I diecut from - ie: the piece that I am not using! Ummm....I don't get it....is the die meant to be this way or was it manufactured the wrong way round? Any clues? Or is there something that I am not understanding? It is a beautiful set but I am just totally stumped!

I recently purchased some stitched border dies that were just a little too long to go thru my Cuttlebug when cutting the end of a top folding card, so I renewed my search for a manual cutter with a wider opening. I ended up purchasing the Grand Calibur and what a joy it has been to use!
I purchased it used from Amazon, it was advertised in "like new" condition and it was a substantial savings, so I took the plunge. Well they meant what they said about the condition. It was probably an open box item, but everything was in tact, beautiful condition with nary a scratch and nothing was missing!

Have to say this is probably going to replace my Cuttlebug permanently (shhh! don't tell my Cuttlebug!) It is a smooth operation, start to finish!

Just had to share my good experience!

Just wondering if anyone has purchased the new version of the Grand Calibur (teal colour) and if there was much difference from the original model. Thanks.

Oooo, I am wondering this too! I read that the internal components are supposed to be stronger-- I think I saw that on the Spellbinders FB. I do know that Create & Craft was selling them for $89.99.

The reason I am tempted is because Ive been admiring Sue Wilson's Spanish Collection dies, and several of them are wider than the 6" of my Big Shot.

Hi jocelyn, I'm not sure if this is the answer to your problem but I have one of the spellbinders rectangles, Eiter Noble or Romantic, I was disappointed with it until I realised that one of the fancy outer dies looks better used with a very plain inner die, if that makes sense.
