Your site is wonderful - very informative and helpful. I'm hoping you can help me - I need help with the various sandwiches for using other dies (unbranded) in the Grand Caliber - they go through the Cuttlebug OK. I've Googled the Grand Caliber site and I must be doing something wrong as I can't find anything.

Hi Ellen,
I just came across your great blog. I have a question about the nestibilities. It was back in Sept of 07 that it was stated that these dies had not been tested yet on the Revolution. Is there an update about that? I understand the dies are similar in depth of the QK dies. I love these Nestabilities dies and am hopeful they can be used on my Revolution tool.



Hi Ellen

I am from the uk and this site is great can you help i want to put the cuttlebug alphabets into the wizard and don't know what the sandwich is.

Thanks in advance


Hi Ellen: I just read the sandwich recipe for the CB for the Nestabilities Dies,

I would like to cut and Emboss with the Nestabilities, what should I buy to make that happen.
Do I need the white spacer plate and the tan emboss mat? Is there anything else I would need for the Cuttlebug?


Thank you so much for all that you do to make things so much easier for the rest of us. I appreciate your advice on our machine (CB and ZEM owner here) and know from my experiences that this is the perfect way t start and see what works well for my machines. I'm one of those with the tighter CBs and your suggestions from day one have been so helpful.

thanks again!

Thanks for your info. I have a question about embossing the nestabilities in the CB. When you put that tan embossing mat, does it get cut marks in it from the dies? Do you have to replace it? Thanks


Ellen my dies came today!!! I have a question. Do you cut your selected shape first, then stamp the image on the cut-out shape to get it centered correctly or do you stamp on card stock first and then cut out the shape centering it on the die and if so how do you get the image to stay centered while you cut it out? Because the stamped image will be face down on the die how can you possibly center it?


Ellen!! I could just hug you. I got my dies on Friday and played some yesterday. They are amazing. My head is spinning with the possibilities. I had so much fun playing for the time I did (now to get all these house guests out of my house so I can concentrate LOL!) Thanks so much for sharing these. What a great product - can't wait to order the other sets.


This is super! thank you so much. I will bookmark this page for my use when I get my dies!


Thank you ever so much for this detail! I know this took much time to research and write. It is very appreciated!


Very comprehensive. Thank you for all you do.
