Yes, I got both sets of the M&S - one in the catlalog and the Holiday set in the new Mini. Stack from bottom up: C plate, cardstock, die, C plate. I had bought the large die they go with from another website for only $20. Then I realized that because it cuts a standard 4.25 x 5.5 card, you would have to cut the cardstock slightly larger than that for the die. What a waste! Normally you can get 2 cards from a 8.5 x 11 inch piece of cardstock. Well I suppose if you cut the cardstock in half and then very carefully lining it up on the die, you would not waste paper. So, with the stack I mentioned above you can still cut the window where you want. Additionally, the big die I got does the horizontal card only which is not the normal orientation I use. Now I can use it either way. Just be careful that the die doesn't shift when you put the stack in the CB to cut and you will be fine.
