This product makes me SO happy! The color is bright and beautiful, which makes it easy to find on my desk when I'm working on a project. AND...who doesn't love glitter? I really like using the standard plates in my Big Shot Plus when I'm cutting smaller items. The beveled edges make it easy to roll the platform through the machine. This also helps when I have to die cut a card front and let the opposite side hang off the edge of the platform. The flat edges always seemed to leave a harsh line. I would totally recommend this product.
Cutting pads are essential and these do the job, but they are also a beautiful color so they are easy to see compared to the original clear ones that just blend in. I love the new sparkle, it seems to inspire my imagination and creativity.
They were not the right size for my machine. My machine broke & I purchased a Big Shot machine to replace it & now I have the right size pads! I like the color. Now I know which is the top pad & which is the bottom pad at a glance!
