Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, JanTink!!!

You have no idea how much time and fumbling you just saved me! Got mine yesterday (w/Michael's 50% coupon ) and I'm loving it - I was just getting ready to experiment with my brass stencils.

Thanks!!

I'm curious how everyone uses their alphabet die cuts? I purchased the Fancy Pants die cut expecting each letter to be on a separate steel plate, but found out that one long plate strip contains multiple letters. (I'm not sure if this is the same with the other alphabet dies or not.)

So, do you put paper only under the letters that you need or do you put paper until the entire plate and then throw away the letters that you don't need? I've never used a die-cut machine before and would love to hear what more experienced die-cutters do.

I do usually cut out pieces of cardstock the size of the letter, as best I can, so as to not waste.

I have the CB harmony alpa set. I think that it's cheaper for the company to produce several letters on one plate. I've never diecut letters either. I cut the paper just big enough to cover the entire plate. I'm saving the letters, but doubt I'll ever actually go through them and use them. I cut the letters mostly from patterned papers.

I would say try www.creativexpress.com, but I just looked and they are out of stock on that one. I got one earlier today for $47 something.

FYI I just bought a thin mouse pad at Watmart for $2.98. I am going to try my texture plates with that without the cardboard shim and see if it works any better. I think I might play some more with my brass stencils! Good Luck, Janine! Let us know how things worked.
At Michael's I used a JoAnn's coupon with no problem. The Sizzix Sizzlet 4 pack dies were on sale for 9.99. I was planning on using my coupon for that and I didn't need to! I also bought another Formal Squares CB embossing dies. I was also at JoAnn's since they are about a block away from each other. I got a Fiskars embossing edge punch and tiny tags CB dies. I hope to find some time to play on New's Year Day!

I couldn't use it until I ordered the Big Impressions Starter Kit from www.paperdreams.com . They were in stock Tuesday when I ordered it! It has an impression pad, silcone rubber sheet, and 3 double-sided impression plates.
To use the brass stencils I made a sandwich. Starting from the bottom:
1. spacer platform ( comes w/ Big Shot)
2. cutting pad (comes with Big shot)
3. Brass stencil
4. paper or cardstock
5. silcone rubber ( comes with Big Impressions Starter Kit)
6. Impression pad ( comes in the Big Impressions Starter Kit)
Run this through you machine and you have a beautiful embossed image!


Now for the sandwich you will make to use the Fiskars plates and the Big Shot impression plates. Starting for the bottom;
1. THIN PIECE OF CARDBOARD This must be thinner that the cutting pad.
2. spacer platform (comes with Big Shot)
3. texture plate ( Fiskars & Ellison ones are the same thinkness)
4.paper or cardstock
5.silicone rubber pad (comes with Big Impressions Starter Kit)
6. Impressions pad (comes with Big Impressions Starter Kit)
Run this through you machine and you'll a nice sheet of texture for paper crafting.

I found that if you do the texture plates without the homemade cardborad shim you will not get a real noticeable impression. If the cardboard shim is used them the impression is really fab!

I suppect that the Wizard charm Kit it pretty much the same as the Big Impression Starter Kit. They both sell for about the same price but with the BISK you get the 3 double-sided texture plates.
Hope this helps enable you all to go get the Big Impressions Starter Kit or BISK from www.paperdreams.com Be sure to tell them I sent you!!! HA HA HA!!!!

thanks for sharing your experiences. I think I may need to get this kit to emboss with?? did you say you used it with a CB that your friend had? how well did it work with CB? that's what I have.

also, is there another address for paper dreams? I tried the link you posted and it didn't work.

thanks again,
Michelle

I forgot to mention that www.creativexpress.com does have *lots* of Sizzlets and Sizzix alphabets for really cheap. I got the Doodletag alphabet set (really cute because it cuts tags with a negative letter image in the center) last week for practically a song. They were $100 retail, and are on sale for $39 and change.

Btw, do you have any cards uploaded with Bow Frame folder? I saw this folder but no ideas ran in my head as to how to use it.
Hi,
I don't have a gallery - that's my goal for next year. I need to learn how to use the digital camera castoffs from my DSs and then learn to upload. The embossing on the Bow Frame is beautiful - I have just filled the center with a stamp from Big Pieces - absolutely no originality, but I am very happy with the look. I need to see what others have done - in the meanwhile I'm just embossing away.

There was one in this week's sale paper.

I've heard rumors that there is another one coming out for next week (tomorrow.)

It depends on the Michael's. Mine would take the coupon no matter what, because they know the difference between Cricut and Cuttlebug. If your's gives you trouble, point out that a) the computer will not take the coupon if it is an excluded item, so have them run the coupon and see what happens and b) the top of the box says "by the makers of the Cricut" NOT that it is a Cricut product.

stampin bird, I would call the store first. They won't take the coupons for any Cuttlebug or Cricut product at either JoAnn or Michaels here.

Michelle, sorry that link wasn't right. Here is the correct one:
www.paperdreamsstore.com
I got the link from someone here on SCS from this thread, I think.

Kimmery, a SCS member, has the CB and I have the Big Shot. I have seen her machine and I THINK that the BISK will work in it. We haven't had time to test it yet.
I wish I had time today but I have a funeral to help with and then I need to get my last bit of mall shopping done. Then my house needs to be cleaned and I need to find a place for stuff that was once in my livingroom. DH finally got us a sofa. He gave our other one away 3 years ago! I only have til Monday to do this because I start teaching again on the 2nd.
We will try to do it on Monday and then let you all know our results!
Sorry the first link didn't work. I just typed paper dreams in the search box and folllowed those links. I didn't realize the word store was in there. I know that this should work!

I have the CB and the BISK works great in it. I think, depending on the cardstock, I might just slide in a cardstock shim, just to make the embossing more pronounced, but otherwise it goes through like a dream.

Vera, I got the lowercase Slim Jim for Big shot at Joann.com when they had them on sale--I couldn't find it anywhere else for a better deal. I love it so much, I want the Uppercase now, too . . .

thanks! this is good to know.

can someone tell me where on the paper dreams web site to find the BISK? I've been checking it out, and can't seem to find it. I've seen the texture plates, and the machine, but nothing I click on seems to take me to the embossing kit. what am I missing?
thanks

I've been eyeing those for a year now! You may push me over the edge with the alpha idea

OK, now here's my question of the day . . . ppppppffffffftttttttt!

I know some of you have been purchasing CB dies for most excellent deals via Ebay.

I will admit that I am not fond of shopping on Ebay, unless I know the vendor personally. I'm just very cautious, and I don't care how good a deal can "appear" (ya' know the old saying: If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is) . . . Yes, I'm an Ebay CHICKEN!

Are there any Ebay auctioneers/vendors of CB products that you can recommend to me with utmost confidence and satisfaction?

Made for the Big Shot, to do pressure embossing with their line of texture plates, Easy Emboss Folders (which have brass templates inside plastic folders). Contains silicone and rubber impression pads that cannot be purchased separately; hafta get one of the starter kits.

They have discovered it works on the Cuttlebug, as well as the Big Shot.

Here's what I did to get more storage for my allotted space:

Red face cuttlebug newbie question

I was finally able to open the cuttlebug that I got for Christmas. My kids got me an A2 embossing folder and also a cute set of the smaller ones. I've never done this before and was really please when it actually worked! What I am wondering is, how does everyone use these smaller folders. The one I have (cute little dogs) open at the bottom so you are limited to the lower portion of the card unless you do it on a smaller piece of paper and tape it on.
Or is it possible to split the folder into two seperate pieces and run it through.
Ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I don't have any of the small ones, and don't know if anyone has tried it--it would void the warranty and any possibility of returning it, if it didn't work.

Someone would have to be willing to eat the cost of it, if they wanted to try it, and it didn't work, UKWIM?

OMG, tho. I wonder . . . (wheels are turning . . . )

OMG, tho. I wonder . . . (wheels are turning . . . )
I think it would be hard to get it lined back up right. If anyone's brave enough to cut theirs.....

I have been thinking about making my own stamps also, and do you think it would work with the Crafting Foam Sheets? I would think you could die cut them without a problem.. Also I have seen material in Michael's to design your own stamps but I think it is something you have to carve out or sculpt.

After reading everything about the Cuttle bug I think my next purchase has been decided. I was trying to make up my mind between Cuttlebug, the Cricut or the sizzix It sounds like $ for $ the cuttlebug is more reasonable and has more variety avialable for dies..

When I pulled it out, it was perfectly and crisply embossed! So if you have a super thin foam mousepad, you are essentially running it through as if it were a thin die!
So do you think this would also work with the texture plates? (Same sandwich, except texture plate in place of brass stencil) I am really debating whether I need to order one of the embossing pad kits! (The Wizard Charm Kit, or the Big Impressions Starter Kit). I ordered the texture plates yesterday, so I guess I need to be patient & wait until they get here... But if they come, and it doesn't work, then I have to wait until the other pads get here before I can use them! Hello! Unacceptable!

OK, I was just looking at the BISK on the Joann website & it's sold out. Anybody know about how much it runs?

Hi! This is what I decided, too. I was having the same debate- but the Cuttlebug won out, and I'm loving it. The embossing feature was what really sold me on it. Plus, I have limited space, so the tiny size was a plus for me (as opposed to the sizzix). I have never had a die cut machine before, but I'm sure having fun with it!

OK, it's me again... Holy crap! (Can I say that?...) Yesterday when I ordered on the Joann website, they were out of A2 emboss folders. Today, they're back in stock, and they have TONS of them! They only had 3 before, and now they have 19! I think I need to call & cancel yesterday's order...

Let's see if I can do this right...
http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?C...&PRODID=179069
I've never put a link in before, so I hope that works. I can't find a phone # for Joann.com- anybody know? Am I just going to have to put in a new order?

I only see one in stock.

I would also not jump to cancel your last order. I have placed 3 different orders from Joanns.com for CB A2 folders and have NEVER gotten one delivered fromm them. It has been cancelled each time for not being in stock. I ended up ordering from an online store to round out my "collection". LOL

Interesting... I wonder why it's showing up different for me! I just put 5 of them in my shopping basket.

OK. Maybe I'm crazy. I closed out of the Joann website, went & fed my 3 year old, came back, and there's only one in stock, like Jody said. How did I see this amazing selection and now it's gone? Is it some cruel joke my DH is playing on me? I guess I"ll never know...
