Jude, Cuttlebug do the prettiest embossing folders and they make lovely matting fronts for cards . Plus run the card through with an embossing folder then use that embossed card for your dies.

My Cuttlebug arrived this morning 8am, ordered saturday free delivery, good service that I think. Opened it to check it but not had a go with it yet, waiting fro OH to fix his car!!!

Brilliant Ann, very good service. Let me know how you get on with it.

The lady on the phone did say that if you are rolling it through, and it feels like its sticking, don't push it, take it out refit and try again, or the plates might bend. It will mark the plates and not to worry about it.
Hope that makes sense, perhaps someone else that has one will understand.

Good luck, can't wait for mine now:o)

Always worth buying a second set of the B mats and keeping one for cutting as will get very marked and one set for the embossing folders.

Not tried it yet as not had time but all tips gratefully received. I do so hope it is easier to use than the Wizard or I will be disappointed.
Thanks Jill will bear that in mind.

My Cuttlebug plates are extremely marked and bent but that does not affect the way they work. You must always put the B plates in the the same way up do not turn them over as it will make them crack. Find it very easy to use with no pressure needed. even when cutting through several layers of paper. I am sure you will both spend a fortune on embossing and cutting plates once you get started. I found an American site that had dies very cheap although with the exchange rate now and the P&P not a lot cheaper. Got an alphabet set very cheap.

Weather here at the moment is awful, pouring with rain and the wind is so strong it has blown my pots over on my patio. Hope it has stopped by morning need to go to daughters down the motorway, do not like driving in heavy rain.


AnninGlos Report 8 Apr 2009 08:58

thanks for that tip Jo, that is useful.
Hope you have a safe trip, i hate driving on the motorway in rain.
