Default Nestibilities?

I would like to get some but don't have any yet and need a little help.
Which ones do you use the very most--circle? Oval? square? rectangle?
plain or scollop?

I keep looking at them and it is confusing as there are classic, large , petite etc, etc. --Mind boggling to me. Just don't know where to begin!

I'm thinking Cut @ h is the place to buy them by the full set with the monthly coupon. Or is it better to get say a plain circle set and a plain rectangle?
Boy do I need HELP!!!!!! Anyone???????????

I only have the scalloped oval and circle in LARGE because the smallest one is pretty darn tiny and use them quite a bit. I would just think about the cards you've made and which shapes you have and would like to use most. GL

I use the circles and squares (scalloped & plain) the most. Overstock.com has a nice selection cheaper than most places and the shipping is cheap. I've ordered from cutathome too, but the shipping is pretty high.

Hi!! I am so glad you asked this question, because I asked it in a thread that I started and no one has answered me.. I DID take a shower!!! lol
I would like to get some nesties also and was told that I could cut them in the Sizzix Sidekick that I already have but I don't know what size to purchase that will fit in the machine. I checked on the net and all the sites that list nesties don't give a size so I don't know which ones will fit in the sizzix which only handles about a 2 1/2 wide piece of paper.
So I hope we get some advice!!!
Thanks
God bless

The smaller half of almost all the sets should fit. But not one set will entirely fit in the sidekick as they run about 4" on average.

Thanks Cher, since I have never seen the nesties I am not sure what you mean by the "smaller half". I know they go up in size so that you can "nest" them together, are you saying I won't be able to nest them, but only use the smallest sizes. Sorry I am so dense...
God bless

Exactly...each individual set has 5 -7 dies in it, and the largest is usually about 4" in one direction. The middle ones tend to be around the 2.5" size...so to get the full use out of them you might want to look into a Big Kick, Big Shot or Cuttlebug.

Still, if you only use 3 of the dies, they are cheaper than 3 punches in that size!

My Hobby Lobby has started carrying a limited selection of nesties. They list for the same price that the company sells them for at expos... BUT HLs coupons do not exclude them (like they do the Cricut stuff), so... you can watch for 40% off coupon and get a GREAT bargain!!

I made my decision based on the basic shapes that I could already do. . . I can do a rectangle with my paper cutter so my first set was the scalloped rectangle. I have a circle cutter too so next I got a scalloped circle set. I used 40% coupons for HL for both. Next on my list will be the plain and scalloped ovals (once I've saved my pennies and HL is running their 40% coupon again.

I'd like to know if the sizes are listed anywhere, online or othewise of each set. I have a small 4 set of circles and squares diecuts from ProvoCraft for my Cuttlebug and then I found these nesties. Between the two sets I think I've most size circles but I'd like to have the dimensions so I know if I really need any additional punches, etc. I didn't have all I needed for one project so I made adjustments and it worked but the right dimensions would have looked better.

Default Nestabilities Measurements

Nichole at PaperTrey Ink has given size ranges for the Nesties on her Web site at http://www.papertreyink.com/acc_nestabilities.html
and she displayed the relative sizes of the dies on her blog at
http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capt...abilities.html

Some patient soul at Marco Paper has measured all of the dies, and you can see them here http://www.marcopaper.com/wizardnestabilities.htm

I have no relationship with either of these vendors, and there may well be others who display the measurements on their sites. These are the first two I found in a quick Web search. I hope this information is helpful!

I use the large Scallop Circle and the Large Circle (well they're the only ones I have) But if I had to choose I would I would buy the circles. You're sure to get more use out of them than the scallops. You really need the circles to have the scallops. I bought my scallops before the circles, they were pretty useless. They look better nestled with the circles.
As for petite or large - IMO I think that the petite scallop circles are just too petite.
good luck in choosing

Why are they called "Wizard" nestibilities on the Overstock.com website? Is that the same thing as "spellbinders" nestibilities?

I love the scalloped ones, especially the oval and the circle - they mix beautifully with the plain ovals and circles too.

They're the same. The Wizard is the brand name of the die-cut machine, manufactured by Spellbinders company.

I started out with the classic rectangles set because they fit most of the stamps I have. I stamp my image first then position the nesties die over it and cut.

Each month I would add another set to my collection. I thought I would never want or need the long rectangles set but I finaly broke down and bought it. How did I ever do without it. I found a way to cut them to fit any stamped image I have and I'm so happy I have them. I am using my classic rectangle scalloped dies to fit the long rectangles...just cut 2 and layer one over the over until it fits the long rectangle. So glad I don't have to buy the scalloped set. I can move onto the petite ovals.

I see where http://www.rubbernecker.com has a GREAT sale on the nestabilities thru 12/31/08. Plus.... if you spend over $20 in product, they give you an additional rebate of 10%. Can't beat that ANYWHERE!! I think they're on sale for $16.99 for individual sets.

Default Obsessing about the nesties...

I jumped right on this band wagon and bought a bunch of nesties only to confuse myself. I got the petite scallop oval large and the petite oval large, as well as the petite scallop circle large and the petite circle large. I expected to layer the oval with the scallop oval, and the circle with the scallop circle. But the overlap is only noticable on the larger dies (which i will probably use the least on my cards.) So now I think that I need either the petite scallop oval SMALL or the petite oval SMALL to be able to get the effect that I want. Same with the circles. I need another set to make the layer that I want. Does this make sense?

I would recommend buying all 4 sets of the shape that you want. That way, you get all possibilities. At Ucutathome they have these sets available with coupon.

BTW, I also bought the scallop square and the scallop rectangle, both in large. I'm beginning to think I have a serious spending problem......

Thanks everyone for your help. I still have a question. I see a lot of cards that say -have a scallop oval and then a plain oval inside. Are they using the scallop one in one size and the plain one in the next size down?

Also are the large size the ones that you use the most as opposed to small or petite. I would really like the ovals and rectangle to start out with but want scallop and plain in each set so I can layer them but wonder if I got full sets would I really use all of them that much. I'm mainly talking card making for them. What size do you actually use the most?

I need to know this too. Today I received large scalloped circles and large circles, and large scalloped ovals and large ovals, with a cuttlebug and tan mat, in hand, can I start using them? For some reason I'm nervous and keep looking at them...LOL!

Thanks for everything! I'm going to check out the links now...

I posted this same thread several months ago before I bought my first set. I am on the once-a-month plan at Cut At Home. They really do have the best price of anywhere online.

I ended up starting with the complete classic oval set myself (both sets of regular ovals and both sets of scalloped ovals) because I knew that was the shape that would be hardest for me to cut myself with any other punch or system. And I had seen so many things in the galleries using the ovals that I liked that I knew I would get some use out of them. My next set was the regular rectangles. Then the circles - which I really love. And the long rectangle set is on it's way to me now. Eventually I will get all the basic shapes. I really do use all of them and they have been a very worthwhile investment for me.

I know it's a hard decision to pick which set is first. But remember that it is just your first set, not the only one you will ever get. So choose the one you think you will use most. The one that best fits the stamps you already own. Then next month pick another one. Have fun with them.

Boy do I need HELP!!!!!! Anyone???????????
I have loads - circle, oval, square, oblong and the new labels. I have to say the labels are really great, but then I just love them all, sorry! Not much help, am I! I tend to use the circles and squares most, but I have the creative memories plain circles, which do work with the scallop circles that I have.

Further to my last message, just to let you know, there isn't a lot of difference between the normal and large size sets, just half a cm, or something like that, and I use them all with my big shot.
I have the ovals - both scallop and plain in both sizes, but I needn't have bought both size sets - just one size set would have done - I only use the larger ones, and the plain fits nicely inside the scallop cut out.

I bought my first set last month after tyring to figure out which ones to buy first as well and checking here. I decided to go with the classic circles set from [email protected] with their VIP coupon. This month (probably tomorrow) I am going to order the classic squares set. I'll move on to the ovals and rectangles after that. I hadn't given much thougth to the other shapes but, by the time that I order the others, I will probably be hooked and want the lables and other shapes too!

I bought my first set last month after tyring to figure out which ones to buy first as well and checking here. I decided to go with the classic circles set from [email protected] with their VIP coupon. This month (probably tomorrow) I am going to order the classic squares set. I'll move on to the ovals and rectangles after that. I hadn't given much thought to the other shapes but, by the time that I order the "classic" shapes, I will probably be hooked and want the lables and other shapes too!

Default Sandwich for the SU big shot?

Can anyone tell me the sandwich to use for th SU Big Shot for both cutting and embosing. I finally figured out that you have to do both seperately while breaking my cuttlebug.....I too scared now to try them in my big shot. Thanks for your help

Which ones do you use the very most--circle? Oval? square? rectangle?
plain or scollop?

I keep looking at them and it is confusing as there are classic, large , petite etc, etc. --Mind boggling to me. Just don't know where to begin!

I'm thinking Cut @ h is the place to buy them by the full set with the monthly coupon. Or is it better to get say a plain circle set and a plain rectangle?
Boy do I need HELP!!!!!! Anyone???????????
I have the scallop circle and square sets and the matching plain sets cheaper that way and you are certain that they line up perfectly. so scalloped mat layer and perfect cicle to fit neatly inside, showing a lovely frilled edge. As Ellen Hutson explains on her blog(i think) if you want a bigger area of 'frill' buy the NOT corresponding set! could do with the oval set next and then paisley, and then the mega rectangles as they can be folded in half to make a scalloped card. BUT if you like the cards featured all over Splitcoast galleries then i would get scalloped circle and plain circle first they are the most widly used set of any.. top of the league in my opinion... and i found out about them here before i purchased any, THANK YOU TO ALL AT SPLITCOAST!

I bought my first set at Cutathome.com and it is cheaper there with the coupon. I bought the Classic circle family of 4 first and then the Classic Ovals family of 4. I ended up using the ovals for my Christams cards the most. I had found that I wished I had the Rectangles qite a bit while making the cards. That is the next family of 4 that I will be buying,and at cutathome too. HTH! You will love them!!!

Amber do you know what is being released or anywhere to see pictures yet.

I still haven't ordered any yet. Still wavering on circles or ovals. Love the ovals but don't know if I would use them more than circles. I figure I can
make squares for awhile myself. Oh and by the way I just found out today
that [email protected] is right here where I live and not to far from me so I can
order and just pick up instead of paying shipping. How great is that!

I checked with hobby L today and they have some in but she says she doesn't carry any like the labels and other shapes. But you would also
be using your coupon on just one pkg. instead of a whole set like you get
at cut at home.

Another question.(s) Has anyone posted something done with the paisley set.
I look at them and can't imagine what I'd do with them.

Also do you need the tan mat that I hear about to cut the nesties with the cuttlebug or can you do it without?
