Hi everyone! I've had a bit of a quiet week but one of the products I've been looking forward to most since the big winter CHA show is the new Tim Holtz sizziz dies and embossing products! Today I wanted to hear from you!
Who out there has gotten one or has it on their wish list ? I've heard from two of my readers that these dies will work with the Cuttlebug, remember to use them face down (cutting side edge/with the foam downwards). I had tried to sizzix dies with both the cuttlebug and the big shot a while back ago. I originally had problems using the sizzix steel ruled dies (original and bigz) in the cuttlebug cutting side up (and ended up cracking a plate) but figured out that if I change them face down they work just fine. (I do also recommend keeping an extra set of "b" plated on hand - or upgrading to the Big Shot - I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE mine!)http://bellacarta.typepad.com/rebecca/2008/08/it-works-it-wor.html
Tim Holtz's website notes that these *will* work with Cuttlebug, as well as Sizzix BigKick, Big Shot, and Quickcutz Epic.
So ... I have my TH dies on order .... I can't wait to play with them! I really had a hard time choosing, I wanted them ALL! Some of my favs were the tattered florals, hanging sign, the gears .....
Please let me know if you love these, hate 'em, where they're available (I don't think all stores have received them yet) and who you think has the best price!
