I bought the Embossing Plus tags set and it is awful. I have tried everything I can think of - various sandwiches, shimmed & un-shimmed, different types of papers... just can't make it work right. Very disappointing. Let me know if any of you find the magic formula. I basically just put it away and haven't looked at it in months.

I think I've got it figured out now. I need to buy the extended cutting pads. It won't work without them.

Thank You, ladies.

Yes, that was the problem, the Embossing Plus will not work without the extended cutting plates.

Has anyone had success with the cuttlebug 6x9 all-in-one system? Just picked one up at Joann today. I followed the instructions and when I run it through there is a lot of undesirable creases...

Hi!
I've used it once, then put it away because I didn't have a lot of time to play. Next week. What I did discover, because I didn't understand their instructions is I put the white plate down (A plate I think), then one B plate, then the all in one system (loaded with paper and pieces), then another B plate. This is the sandwich I ran through the Cuttlebug that gave me a nice finished piece, and didn't look wrinkled anymore.

I had tried the A plate, 2- B plates, than the all in one system and got wrinkles.

Are there any other ways to do this?

Thanks for the idea ladybugstamper2! I just tried putting one B on top and one on the bottom. Then I tried both B plates on the bottom. I tried the C plate and adding shims. All of them embossed with the creases. I am really disappointed. What a great idea by Cuttlebug, but it seems as though it could have been thought out more, so the end product is consistent. It almost seems as though the pieces that do the embossing are too thick, resulting in too deep of an emboss, which leads to the crinkles?? Does that make sense? I might have to write to Provocraft. In the meantime I'll keep trying...

Yes that makes sense. I some time get wrinkles but other times don't, it may just come down to the thickness of the paper/cardstock used as opposed to the plates being to thick?

I have tried all different thicknesses of paper as well. I posted over at the cricut community forum as well, and they suggested using the extended plates, and placing a piece of nice kleenex on top of the paper. Unfortunately I am still getting the creases.

It might sound dumb on my part but what's the theory on how extended plates help? Just curious.
I did note that some times if I run the folder and paper through really quickly it gets crinklier and I have to remember to slow down the roll through.

Does anyone here know the "sandwich" for the Amuse dies? I got a couple in my order today, but they didn't come with any directions. Thanks!

What do they look like? I'm thinking wafer thin? If so - ab die paper b.or ab die paper c. or use the Bs and use shims

Yes, they are very thin! I will experiment with these combos. Thanks!

I suggest using the sandwich for spellbinder cutting then. Experimenting with the previously mentioned sandwiches is always a good thing, too.

Several embossing folders give me the same problem where the embossing is very deep. I found that spritzing the paper with rubbing alcohol solves everything. I keep it in a mister bottle next to my Cuttlebug.

The alcohol immediately penetrates the paper fibers and makes them very pliable. I run it through, the paper is able to mold into shape without creasing, then it immediately dries in the new shape.

I also use the alcohol with the Texturz plates to get a really deep crisp emboss. Give it a try and let me know if that fixes things!!!

I wondered too, because a B plate is a B plate short or long. But I guess people were having trouble with the cut and emboss folders, and the extended plates worked better?? So she thought it was worth a try. I tried running it through slowly as well. I gave up and returned it. It just didn't give me the quality of the current embossing folders.

I actually gave up and returned them. I loved the concept, but was simply disappointed with the quality. Thank you for the tip about the alcohol, I will definately try it with the texture plates. I would love to get a deeper impression with the texture plates!

Thank you for this tip! I am extremely happy with the results using this tip with the texture plates. (I was a little bummed I jumped the gun and returned the all in one, I would have liked to seen the results with this tip) I was so happy I posted the results on my blog, so more people could see this fantastic tip! Thanks again!!

Thanks for all the suggestions regarding Amuse dies. I'm going to try the Spellbinder's sandwich. I got the pennant die from Taylored Expressions, and it is very similar to the Amuse ones.

Question Plate Placement from bottom-->up for Cuttlebug Embossing??

Hi Everyone~

I am sorry, I know this is a baby question, and I have had my cuttlebug for a year now...but I can't find my scrap paper with the order of the plates from the bottom ----> up just to emboss with their embossing folder. Does anyone know? Please help me out. I am in the middle of a card I need to get out. Thank you!


My other question is what order do you put everything in to cut a Spellbinders? I don't need to know this as quickly, however. Thank you all so very much!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

p.s. I think this time, I will write it on the machine.

From the Bottom Up

A Plate
B Plate
Embossing Folder with Cardstock in it
B Plate

That should work!

To use Spellbinder's dies in a Cuttlebug:
to cut:
A
C
cardstock
Nestabilitie, cutting side down
B

To emboss:
A
B
Nestabilitie with cut shape in frame, cutting side up OR a brass stencil
Cardstock
embossing mat
B
shims if needed

Thank you both so very much! I hardly ever come to the forums besides the prayer threads...I am excited to see how quickly people can be helped by people who can remember! Thank you again!

I've known it, I've been here at SCS for almost 1 1/2 years, I just don't chat often.

I really appreciate both of your help! Have a blessed day!

Question Follow up question for armadillo~

HI Again...

Would you please just clarify this...

Are you saying that instead of using Spellbinder's Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug, we can simply put a BRASS STENCIL in during that spot in the plate lineup?

I just want to make sure I understand. Thanks so much!

I know you have the answer already, but the way I remember is that you always use A on the bottom then b. The third plate is b for embossing or c for cut. Hope that makes sense to you.

I just purchased the Tim Holtz Easel Back die. It is a BIGZ die that is supposed to create crease lines for where it should be folded.

The problem is that, when I use the die in my Cuttlebug (B - Bigz Die - Cardboard - B) it is cutting on the crease lines.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I need a special Sizzix plate for Bigz dies with creasing?

use your rubber embossing mat on top of the cardstock, that should solve the problem I think. I have to try this on another die that I have which I have not tried yet. My craft room is being revamped so I can't play yet.

I think you need to use thick material for the easel. The crease is really a shallow cut. Here's a link I found: Sizzix Bigz Die Tim Holtz - Small Easel 657187

I am cutting thick material - recycled chipboard from cereal boxes!

The picture on the page you linked shows the "crease" cuts which are supposed to allow it to bend, but when i cut it on the Cuttlebug, the crease scores go all the way through, essentially cutting the easel pieces in half.

Try gluing two sheets of box together.
The Sizzix description says, "For best results, use a thicker material like mat board, chipboard or grungeboard."

They are all thicker than one layer of cereal box.

You need to use the sizzix crease pad with dies which have creases. The rubber pad will not work but will cut up your rubber pad. Ask me how I know! It was an accident. I grabbed the wrong pad one time. Also, cereal boxes are considered lightweight chipboard but the pad is the key to your problem.

Default Stampin Up embosslits in Cuttlebug

Can anyone tell me a recipe (that works) to use SU embosslits in the cuttlebug? I tried using my button embosslit and it popped a big ol' crack in my C plate. (this was supposed to cut and emboss at the same time.)

I will buy a Sizzix Crease Pad! Once I have it, what is the correct Cuttlebug sandwich with the Bigz die and the Crease Pad?

B - Bigz - item to be cut - Crease Pad ???

Thanks SO much!

Yes, I believe that is correct. If not, it would be C plate-Bigz-paper-crease pad.

But I am thinking the c plate is too thick because the Crease pad is about as thick as a B plate but a bit more flexible. There are instructions in the package.

Big Shot 101 - Stampin' Pretty - My Fun & Chic Stampin' Up! Boutique, Mary Fish, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Video Tutorials

She has alot of info on both the Big Shot and the Bug. According to this blog the crease pad that is for the Big Shot is too long and wide for the Bug.

Note: The Extended Cutting Pads and Premium Crease Pad sold as accessories with the Big Shot are too wide for the Cuttlebug.

I don't know about the crease pads so I'm not sure if the crease pads she refers to are for the extended cutting pads or if there are different ones for regular sized dies. Are there different sizes of crease pads? I don't know. Thought I'd share this info though just in case it's one size fits all.
