Does anyone remember the first die cut machine to come out? I was thinking back and I remember that one of my friends had a machine and I think it was on loan. It embossed regular metal dies, the kind you used a stylus and light box for and cut some dies, like you got at a scrapbooking store. I remember that we were all unimpressed and decided not to waste the money. I don't remember who made it. We all said that we could bie the cuts for a quarter each and why spend that kind of money, when we already had the lightboxes and stuff. Wish I could remember more.

Thanks JulieB and Daniel. I have one of those 40% off coupons at Michaels. Was considering a Spellbinders Die. I have done ALOT of embossing and want to try the dies. However didn't want to waste that coupon on something I couldn't use.

Terri. Glad to be of assistance. Happy die-cutting.

LOL, Kay! You are sooo giving me a 'senior moment'! I remember Accu-Cut having a machine in the '80s, but know there was another company with one then--can't remember who...

Anyhoo. Back then I worked for an independant craft supply store. We did not sell diecuts, paper or stamps. Our inventory was macrame cord, sillk flowers, paint, pompoms, chenille (stems & loopy) & yadda, yadda.

As I recall, those early machines were expensive. Same for the dies. What the companies suggested to retailers was buying the machine & some dies. Customers would then buy papers/cs & use the machine & dies instore to make their own diecuts. Some retailers charged a nominal fee for use--like copy machines back then. Boy have times changed!

Terri, The C plate that comes with your machine ( I heard that they weren't coming with new machines ) is what you need to cut Nestie dies. If you want to emboss the dies you need an additional rubber mat. I started with a couple of basics ( circle, rectangle, oval ) then you can start getting fancy (scallops, boorders, doilys ) Once you start it's all up from there. Daniel, I was wondering the same thing about the hinge.

Thanks Kay. You are correct. The "C" platen did not come with my machine. I checked at Michaels and they do not sell it. I don't suppose you know where I can buy one. I thought I might check Ebay. I looked on the provocraft website but didn't see it. I may have to call them???

Trudy - I do have a Hobby Lobby near me also. I am not sure what you meant in your message that I could use it there. But I did CB a lot of backgrounds and I will color them at night while my husband and I watch TV. I always have liked to color. I can sit for hours and do that.
Do you have suggestions on where I can get the "C" platen?
And you are right during those mental blocks of creativity it just helps to CB!

As it turns out I didn't make it to Michaels with my 40% off coupon to get the Nestabilities but I do want to be ready for the next time

Does anybody have any of those dies that cut out strips and then you roll them up into flowers? I know I've seen them somewhere, but I forgot who makes them.

Kathy, EK Success makes punches for that - you can punch however long you want. Also, Spellbinders make a couple of dies that do that. And, NO, I haven't gotten any of them yet. [but they're on the list]

Thanks Nedra. I looked up the EK punches and I think I like them better because I don't have to drag out my Big Shot and make room on the table.
