Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Important Notice: Using Creative Expressions Embossing Folders with the Grand Calibur

I picked  this info up on the Creative Expresions website and thought I would pass it on: 

"Important Notice: Using Creative Expressions Embossing Folders with the Grand Calibur

In order to achieve the outstanding depth of impression that they offer, our Embossing Folders are slightly thicker than competitor products. As a result the Folders cannot be put through your Spellbinders Grand Calibur using the standard sandwich combination. Attempting to put them through using the standard sandwich may result in damage to your Grand Calibur machine.

Spellbinders plan to release a new plate for the Grand Calibur early in the New Year to improve its compatibility with our Embossing Folders. However, in the meantime, to use the Folders with your Grand Calibur machine please use the sandwich combination below:

Grand Calibur Cutting Plate (C)
CE Embossing Folder and paper/card
Grand Calibur Tan Embossing Mat
Wizard S5 Die Spacer Plate (Part code: WIZW -017)

All other die cutting and embossing machines remain unaffected and are completely compatible with our Embossing Folders.

I will post the sandwich in the Glossary, so it doesn't get lost.

 Please also note the sandwich for die cutting with the Provocraft/Cuttlebug dies (like those that are supplied with your machine), also need a different sandwich than the Spellbinder, Joy Craft, Miranne dies.

Thanks for that, I am just waiting for my grand calibur to arrive.

Hi Ikki - I'd already heard about this..... you would have thought they would have checked this out before releasing the Grand Calibur.... or is it a grand plan to make you spend more on "extras"? So pleased that I got a Joy A4 for Christmas - when it cuts Nesties it even embosses at the same time; brilliant!
