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.
I needed new cutting pads and these really do the trick. I like the colour and i can easily find them on my desk. I use only one on top and keep my old one on the bottom and then I get double use from my new pads. Thanks scrapbook.com for your excellent products.
I Only use one cutting pad at a time because I keep my precision cutting plate on top of the magnetic platform. 2 cutting plates will last a long time and I have loved the new colors Sizzix came out with last year or so. But these Scrapbook.com exclusive cutting pads are really very pretty and they have an extra advantage...at least to me.
There had been times with the other colored cutting pads that I would lose the edges because the colors of the cardstock would blend into the cutting pad. But with these, the glitter in the pads shows me where everything is.
The glitter is well seated into the acrylic that makes up the pads, so you do not need to worry about getting little glitter shaped patterns in your cardstock or paper.
I will order another set or 2 of these pads before Sizzix discontinues them or something. I love to find a pair of glittery cutting pads in Apple Green!
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!
These are a gorgeous color and SO much easier to find on my craftily-chaotic work station than the clear ones. I’ve found that they hold up just as well as the clear ones, but just make crafting easier. Any little helpful innovation or improvement on an already fantastic product is always a plus in my book. I was thrilled when I saw that Sizzix was finally coming out with colored pads a few years back, but these have been my favorite out of all the colors because the shade of blue is gorgeous and they’re glittery!
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.
Ok, when I ordered these I didn't realize they were glittery looking. Not that there is glitter on the outside that would come off, mind you. So they are different than I expected, but very pretty and perform just like the standard clear plates.
Earlier this year I got the sad news that Cuttlebug was not making cutting plates for their hand crank die cut machine! Thankfully, my mother had two Sizzix Big Shot machines and was kind enough to give me one, but it had no plates. These will certainly fill the bill and I am so happy that I can continue to manually die-cut!
