If so what are the other mats you need to use with it? Managed to pick one up heavily reduced......would not have even looked at it otherwise. My cuttlebug is a bit tired I think, and is not very helpful when I am trying to cut thicker materials. ......so I made a snap decision....not like me.
Thanks. I picked up the wafer thin mat, and some extender mat for cutting long dies....I have a few of them
I tried to cut a doily die yesterday with my cuttlebug and gave up in disgust because the innards would not cut thru properly. I was considering purchasing a big shot or similar to replace it....think maybe the rollers are a bit stuffed.....so when this deal came up it was a simple decision to make. Still blooming expensive though.it should be here in five days it said on the invoice!!!!!!! Yay
not to make you rethink your decision to get another awesome tool, but you may need to use newer and less well loved mats in the cuttlebug for intricate dies. I have found that if the plates are well loved and warped they won't cut in the center in intricate pieces. I also will add a shim or too in the center for that reason.
No that was not the problem......had brand new mats in and still not working. Am thinking the rollers are a bit out of whack perhaps.
Even deeper dies like the quickcutz one I have will not cut through all the way. Only ones that are good cuts every time are the tim holtz bigz dies. It's ok for some stuff, so I am not going to chuck it out, will brook for crops etc.
