So I used some Sizzix Sizzlets alpha dies in my Cuttlebug, and now the B plates are all etched up with the imprint of the cuts I made. I put the A plate down first, a B plate, my die, the paper, then another B plate. I even experimented with a cardboard layer in btwn the paper and the top B plate, but all that happened was I got nice cardboard letters as well!
I looked in the Cuttlebug directions, (because i am a WOMAN, and we READ the directions!) and nothing was mentioned about switching to a different plate, or an adaptor or anything. It does say that the Cuttlebug is compatible with other dies, inc the sizzix and sizzlets.
I thought i had read somewhere here on SB.com WAAAAY back about using other plates, so i investigated in M's last week. All I found was a C plate, but it was long, like for cutting long dies or for quilling.
Any imput? Sure, the plates are still usable, but they look, well, USED. I just want to make sure I didnt miss something and I can prevent the dies from etching in the future. Thanks!!
