Default Which Nestibilities?

I am getting ready to make my Christmas list and I have decided Nestibilities are on the top of my list. I know I want Circles, and Ovals and Scallops of both, but I get a bit confused by the different sizes and styles. Any recommendations for which ones to choose? I have the smaller circles and scallops from SU Bigshot so I guess I am looking for something a little bigger to use on my cards.

Thanks!

Labels 8 seems to be very popular.

Well the LARGE versus the SMALL is minute when comparing them beside each other. The sizes are really about how they nest into each other. For example, the large circle CLASSIC will nest into the large circle SCALLOP with just the scallops showing, versus the large circle CLASSIC with the SMALL circle SCALLOP will show not only the scallops, but a little border around it too.
It just depends what look you're going for.

Here I've nested a SMALL rectangle classic in a LARGE rectangle scallop:

Here I've nested a large rectangle classic into a large rectangle scallop and you can just see the black scallops peaking out.

I usually go with the large ones, because the smallest die of the SMALL sets are usually too small for me to make any use of. The smallest die of the LARGE set is usually a pinch bigger and works for inchies or tiny accents.

Hope that helps some!

Love the label 1 set and PTI has a set of accent stamps that fit perfectly into the labels. The stamp set is called Vintage Labels (I think).

That is a beautiful card!!! I am a nestie virgin and haven't yet used my only set. I got it for my birthday two weeks ago. I just didn't know what size to get and guessed. I knew I wanted the rectangles to start and just decided on the small. I'm so glad to know I need to get the large scallops to mat them with a bit showing. Thanks!!! Also, I read that nesties break the cuttlebug B plate, so I'm afraid to use them right now. Any advice?

the older B plates apparently crack easier (mine did) then I replaced it with the newer and it's good now. But I actually cut into my c plate. a no-no for cuttlebug dies, but nesties are okay. This ensure that 1) i won't get breakages and 2) because the C plate is so thick, I'm not seeing warping like I did with the B.

the sandwich i use for cutting is A (white one) C (thick clear one) paper, die FACE DOWN (so you can see where you're cutting), then B on top.
