You are in for a treat! I would recommend that you make a hard copy of Katestamps sandwich stack to have at your work area - it makes it ever so much easier to get it all assembled in the right order. For fun, take a stamped image and prove to yourself how easy it is to get a nice centered image using her technique. You will be amazed at the results!

I don't suppose I'd be lucky and Nesties would work in my old red Sizzix machine, would they?

As I recall they do. I don't have the old Sizzix machine, so I never copied the instructions. If you do a search on the Tools and Product thread for Nesties and Sizzix, it will no doubt bring up the threads that discussed this. Good luck finding the info!

CUTTING (from the bottom up):
A Plate
B Cutting Plate
Paper/Cardstock (stamped) face UP
Cutting Die, face DOWN
C Plate
The advantages of this are that a) you can see exactly where you are cutting around your image, and b) the C plate is sturdier than the B plate and can withstand more direct pressure from the Cuttlebug as it goes through. I have also found less embedding of the die in the plate this way, even though the conventional instructions for die cutting with the Cuttlebug say to do it face up.

EMBOSSING (from the bottom up):
A Plate
B Plate (can be the same one you cut with)
Die with cut piece still inside (flipped over so you canít see the image)
Tan rubber mat
2 layers of HEAVY cardstock (I use a folded A-2 card made with 130# cover stock)
B Plate
Other instructions tell you to put the cardstock shim directly on top of the die, and then the rubber mat. I find I get a better impression this way. You may want to experiment with the cardstock shim layers, using 3 layers of 90# cardstock if you donít have 130#. However, I have not cracked one B plate since I started doing it this way.
Another advantage of doing it this way is that when youíre switching back and forth between cutting and embossing, you only have to change the top plate.
I agree with this configuration of plates. I did a bunch of swap cards last night that have four pieces using the nesties. I was able to get through them relatively quickly with the B plate on the bottom -- and just exchanging the top B plate for a C plate when I embossed.

I just got my classic rectangle set a half an hour ago and tried them a few minutes ago. I used these directions in my cuttlebug and it works so awesome...I love it and it is so easy. It's as easy as punching out with a punch but only looks a lot nicer...Thanks Katestamps...

I do this also but use a piece of removable tape. Stamping after cutting does not work for me, I never seem to get is centered perfectly. Stamping first and aligning the die gives me a perfect placement.

I wanted to send out a BIG thank you to katestamps for sharing her info. I got my nesties 2 days ago and was scared to use them. heehee I was afraid I would break a plate. I found her instructions and they were so easy to follow and worked great the first time I tried it. Thank you again Kate!

HELP - I've got a Sizzix Machine, a Big Shot Machine and today someone tried to tell me I should get the Cuttlebug to use for my nesties. Is it really that much easier? I can't imagine having another machine while the other two work so well with everything else. AND, I could spend that $40 (can get it for 50% through today), on so many other things. I'd appreciate input from anyone who has used their nesties with both the Sizzix and Cuttlebug - do you have a preference, and why? Thanks, Cindy

I use my Big Shot and it works just fine! I wouldn't buy another machine if you are just using it for nestabilities!

I find to be no problem... I just do my sandwich a little diffrently and put my paper face up on my B plate, then put my nestie with the cutting side down where I want it on my paper, then my C plate on top
