I thought I would post the additional information I discovered regarding the uses of the Cuttlebug (CB). After creating with my sister, Betty over the phone she taught me what I will need to do in order to use my CB with my brass stencils. I am SO excited being that I have some absolutely gorgeous stencils.
Create a "sandwich" as follows:
- CB A pad
- CB B pad
- computer mouse pad which is fabric on one side and a rubbery material on the other. This mouse pad should be slightly less than 1/4" thick. Place the mouse pad rubbery side up.
- paper (less expensive paper only needs one pass through, Stampin' Up! and other heavier weight papers need 2-3 passes to get a crisp clean image)
- CB B pad
I can hardly wait to find an inexpensive mouse pad. I looked high and low and the only one we have I didn't dare cut up - LOL! I'm also going to see if I can find a Spellbinder Wizard Rubber Mat - I think that will be the perfect selection as well.
For those who own a Sizzix, you will be thrilled to know that the CB embossing folders and die cuts work with it too. I tested this for a friend yesterday and it worked great - it just took a LOT more work.
Hopefully I will have some pictures to share soon. I have a serious case of Cuttlebugitis that's for certain!
