Your right Daniel they are not all intricate. Some of them even come with matching stamps. They are a lot of fun to use. The owner actually has some videos on U-Tube, he gives great instruction on using the dies and stamps. On some of the more intricate dies I use a shim in my die-cutting machine, it just seems that some of them need a little help, and yes it can get tedious getting some of the paper out but the end results are amazing......the flower child

I've had to do a 'shim' too, Lois. Now that I know that, I'm making one the same size as my CuttleBug plates so it's handy. Thinking posterboard is the right thickness.

To those who asked me to share an addy for where I buy my MBDs... I've sent you PMs.

Kathy N. I'll wear the enabler badge proudly! Could you use the deer when you send it to me?

Diana. Fair warning!

DebRn. I found a window on the MB site (shady window; D1274), but not on the online store I use.

Daniel, if I get the deer family, I'll be more than happy to cut you out a bunch.

Daniel, I've heard a couple of people say that they use the cardboad off the back of a paper pack. That they say is the best thickness.

LOL, Kathy! Thanks for the offer, but just want the 'enabler badge' for being such a 'deer'. (I know! Yuk!)

Kay. Good tip on the shim! Thanks!

I tested the floral wreath in craftfoam as a stamp. Not too shabby results for a quickie try. (used dye ink on copier paper).

I didn't think those thin dies could do craft foam. Isn't the foam thicker than the die?

Yes the foam is thicker than the MBD, but craftfoam compresses during cutting, then springs back to its original thickness. It's also why these dies will cut felt which is also thicker than the die. 'Course there is such a thing as 'too thick', but I haven't had a problem with foam or felt.

Have you seen the new embossing folders that Spellbinders is coming out with? They're two designs in one folder. The inside of the folder is one design and then you can bend it back the other way and the outside becomes the inside with another design. Spellbinders also has some neat new cutting dies. One is a tea set with tea pot, sugar bowl, creamer, etc. I need to win the lottery.

Those 2-fer embossing folders sound verrry interesting. My only concern would be how strong the 'hinge' is since I'd be folding back & forth a lot.

Speaking of embossing folders... Has anyone here ever turned embossed cardstock into a stamp? I'm thinking that if I embossed a piece of glossy cardstock & sealed its surface with something like a Krylon spray, I could mount the card on craftfoam & use it as a stamp. I'd make 2 so I have a positive & negative.

Finally figured out how to work my Cricut Mini. I bought a cartridge at Big Lots for $15.00 that had some nice designs on it. If you need mutliples of a die cut, this is a great machine. I picked out a design and then there is a button that fills the 8 by 12 area with that design and cuts them all out. Too cool. You can go make a cup of tea while the machine is cutting. LOVE IT. Then there is the border feature. The cartridge box shows a bunch of single designs, but then you have buttons on the computer screen for other things. I had a design of what I thought was a single book. When you pressed the border buttom you get a whole row of differenct sized books with a tiffany table lamp at the end. Now I need more cartridges.

Embossing Folders

Daniel,
The idea with the embossing folders is very interesting. If you try that let us know how it works. If I should try it before you I will let you all know. Don't really see why that wouldn't work.
I also have another question for you. I hurriedly looked and didn't see the answer in the other threads.
I am asking you because I just recently got my Cuttlebug and I love that machine. You seem rather fond of yours too! LOL
Can you use the thin Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies? If so, do you have to have different platens other than what comes with the machine?

Correct, Julie! The nesties work fine with the CB plates. I do occasionally use shims (posterboard) to ensure a good cut.

Terri. Glad to hear you're up for trying this out, too! Always nice to have a fellow experimenter! Here's a suggestion...

I have a ton of commercial cards that I got from employee product give-aways going back to '98. Many are printed on glossy cardstock. Figure they'll do fine as 'no cost' material.
