I bought these and am asking Scrapbook.com to refund me, I bought new pads for my Big Shot and these dies still will not cut all the way through. I used shims , waxed paper , everything I could think of. I made multiple passes through the machine and still had to use my exacto knife. Very disappointing. The ones I got to cut were really beautiful, but it was just not worth all the effort.
I guess its because I'm still learning to use it but they just aren't coming out that well. Some of the templates like the small ones can cut and emboss but the large ones with very intricate designs are not fairing so well. I will keep trying. Maybe I should have started with something simpler.
