OK, I searched and found a dozen threads on STORING nesties,,,,,,

but nothing on the "best" ones to buy.

Obviously, that's a personal choice, but I want to build a small stash of the ones I might use most often,,,,,,today I bought these,,

tell me what your favorite set/s are and why??

Labels Four is my fave, and that's one you got.

This is another fave. I love threading thru ribbon.

I don't have many yet but of the ones I do have this one is my favorite so far. They make great frames, mats and journaling spots.

I use these a lot.

BTW, the nestabilities fit in the Big Red. That's what I use for mine. I don't have the Grand Calibur yet. The larger nesties fit it in it (I can't remember what they are called...grand, maybe?) but are too big for some other machines.

Melissa, be careful, they're addictive!!! I have tons of them and I want most of the newest ones, too. If you make cards as much as I do, you end up feeling like you must have them all to cut out your stamped images. At least, that's how I feel! LOL

I have these 3 and Labels Two which I can't seem to find on here. I haven't had any of them very long but I've used them all a lot. I think top of my wishlist is Deckled Ovals, Wonky Rectangles and Reverse Wonky Rectangles. And then a few others I use them for mats, journalling pieces, and to cut shapes for cards.

I love the scalloped circles, rectangles, scalloped rectangles, the squares.... and the labels... I prefer to buy mine in sets of 4 for $52ish dollars.

Now the only question is...Cuttlebug or Sizzix?

I asked (read begged) for an Expression already. I think this may push my poor dh over the edge.

I like my sizzix big shot,,,,,

great machine and very stable on my wood table,,,,,the cb doesn't stick well to wood as near as I can understand,,,,,,,I got the sizzix for less than 60 bucks with a 40% off coupon at M's. The CB takes up a bit less space when stored though,,,both good machines.


where do you get a set of 4? do they have them here? I didn't see them,,,,,

The ones I've found the most versatile are the labels 4, labels 1, and circle and ovals and scalloped circles and scalloped ovals. I'd love to buy them in sets of 4, but I haven't been able to yet. What you need to be careful about when buying them (you may know this already, Holly) is that if you want to layer the circle with the scalloped circle (or oval with scalloped oval, square, rectangle, etc), and if you like the scallop to just peek out from behind the circle, you need to be sure you get both sets in either the "large" or both sets in the "small." If you get the circles in large and the scalloped circles in small (or vice versa), they won't layer as nicely. If you get the set of 4, you've got them all, so no worries, I've seen the sets of 4 at Overstock, but it wasn;t a good deal for Canada (story of my life).

I'm putting just a sampling of cards I've made with just Labels1, labels 4, circles large, scalloped circles large, ovals large, and scalloped ovals large. For a long time those were the only 6 nesties I had, and i made a tonne of cards with them:

Using circles large, scalloped circles large, and labels 1:

Ooooohhhh Nesties...

I have a lot, but I tend to use the same ones over and over it seems, unless I have a special project that calls for a unique shape.

These are my go-to dies linked below. I also love some that aren't offered here like:
Labels Five, Six, Eight, Nine and Curved Rectangles...LOL, and don't EVEN get me started on Shapeabilities and Borderabilities!

I definitely want the labels 1, the beaded ovals and the eyelet circles!!!!!

thanks ladies,,,,,,,beautiful cards Tracy!!!!

that's what I was thinking, Amy,,,that I should at least START with the ones I will probably use most,,,which is subjective, of course, but when you hear over and over again that people really love the labels 4, for instance, you probably can not go wrong. Glad I bought those!
