Please keep your eyes here for more sandwich information regards using some of the more awkward dies in your new machine . We are having a day experimenting and trying to solve various problems .
We will also post more info on the use of the metal plate with both dies and cutting fabric.
Here are some of things we have found :
cutting Marianne swallow tail butterfly
DIE SET LONGWAYS ON
POSITION DIE TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE PLATES
cutting spellbinders LATTICE type dies
DIE POSITIONED TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE PLATES
We tried two of these spellbinder dies , with one the above worked well , but with the other one we found that by making the above sandwich and then flipping the whole sandwich over and running through so that you are now looking at the white base plate : this made a big difference !
GIVE THIS A TRY WITH MORE AWKWARD DIES . THE METAL PLATE IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON THE WEB SITE !
