i read the reviews before ordering and was a bit hesitant. I an SO glad I got them. I run them back and forth a few times on my big shot and they are gorgeous! I also tried the wax paper trick and it makes it even easier to come out of the die. Great product!
I was really excited to receive these dies and have already tried the 'believe' die. Using cardstock I put it through my Big Shot, using my Magnetic Platform and appropriate cutting plates and it did not completely cut the first time through. So I put it through the machine again. After I took it out of the machine, while the die released from the cardstock, the word 'believe' would not completely release from the cardstock without fussy cutting on my part. While I could remove the inside of the loop from the letter 'l', I could not remove the center from the loops of any of the letter 'e's. It looks like the centers were only embossed, not really cut. Maybe a third time through the machine would help? I so want these to work and would appreciate any recommendations from others!
These die cuts are so lovely. Just the right size for card making. They're especially pretty when you cut the out of metallic paper. I'm so glad I got them.
My suggestion for Tim is that the dies should come on a metallic sheet with a the words on them. It's hard to figure out what the words are before you die cut them. They are shipped loose in a plastic envelop and that's just not how I want them stored.
I LOVE these words by Tim Holtz. They are done in a beautiful script, not too formal yet not too casual/comic strippy. I also really like the size. They are more on the large size which is fine with me as I don't use a lot of elements on a card... mine is a more simple style.
Love the selection of holiday words! When I'm working on cards, I don't want to fumble with individual letters when I'm mass producing. These are the perfect size, and the typography is perfect for my style. So happy I decided to order these!
I ordered this set because it was a good price for the number of dies you get and I know I will use each of these dies. My order arrived packaged well and came quickly. I make my own cards so this set will be used over and over again.
These dies are really nice, they are easy to get out, with the little poke holes you do not have to dig the paper out. They work really well with my Cuttlebug, as long as you are using plate "C", with plate "A" and "B". When i put adhesive on the paper i was cutting, I had to use a small shim (just another piece of cardstock) to get it to cut through the cardstock, adhesive and adhesive backing, but worked really well. Gave it 4 stars because I found some of the words hard to figure out and actually cut the wrong one. If they put the word on the back so you could read what it is, it would have definately been a five star!
When running these dies through my big shot plus the cutting was not very good. The die didn't make a clean cut. I tried various thickness of card stock and had the same problem. I wish they would improve their dies and take a lesson from Lawn Fawn dies which come out cleanly cut every time.
