I was getting pretty frustrated trying to use the Watercolor Joy wheel because I kept catching edges. I tried all the suggestion I got on the forum (except for the wheel guide which I don't have) but nothing helped, so I did something real gutsy. I trimmed off the edges with my craft knife. Eureka! No more edges to catch! Anyone care to join my "Let's Trim the Wheels" club?
I CASEd the card on page 4 of the catty.
(Reloaded this because somehow the first upload got lost.)

You are a brave and daring voyager. An inspiration to us all. You have tread into territory I would shudder to enter. BUT you have inspired me!! Very gutsy move, I may do the same with my dot wheel. Did you use an exacto knife? By the way- I love the card too!

I love the card and haven't purchased that wheel yet, but I do hae problems with a few other wheels.
Did you take the rubber completely off the wheel and cut and then re-mount? I've heard some people have large gaps in their wheels which are really noticeable, and apparently they have removed the rubber, heated it(?) and stretched it back onto the wheel after cutting a small slice off.
