I can get the top note the work fine but these are driving me insane! Can you help??

Ok first what machine are you using?

Big Shot?

If so this should be your sandwich for the Basket & Blooms Die from the bottom up
XL standard Cutting Pad
Basket and Blooms Die foam side up

I just tested it and it worked just fine.

Try moving the die down a little so that the cutting pads go in the rollers first and let the machine "pull" the rest of the die in. Does that make sense?

For the sizzlets die you need your multipurpose platform

Multipurpose Platform Tab 1

You can't cut anything thicker than Cardstock with sizzlets. Vellum, Cardstock, Paper, Foil

Hugs and Blessings
