I figure how to use the bodacious bloom with my cuttlebug. Yeah!I use a double shim and about 5 or 6 time run it thru my cuttlebug it may be a little more work. But in the end it awesome flower.

I have found the easies way to adhere the delicate dies is to adhere double sided sheets to the paper, then run through your die cut machine. All you have to do is remove the backing and adhere, no mess, no stress :)

I absolutely love this webisode, these are beautiful die cuts. My question is what do you use to adhere the finer cuts like the lattice and swirls? Thanks....
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
We've been using a regular glue stick adhesive even for the finer details.

Thank you so much for the tip. I did what you said and the dies work pefectly. Just needed to be patient and play with them a bit. They cut perfectly. Thanks once again.
Blessings, Peggy

I used the Bodacious dies today with my CuttleBug. They work okay. However, the tiny die cut would not release the paper. I guess there's a trick to it? They do make beautiful flowers for cards/scrapbooking!

We have found running the cutting dies through twice—first back and forth. If your cutter needs more help, then lift off the paper and turn the die 45• and run through again. It has worked for us.

I received my die cuts today and could not wait to try them. I have a Big Shot and am having problems with the lattice cutting all the way through cleanly. I did use the wax paper. Do I need a certain weight of card stock? Do some weights work better than others. I'm sure I'll get it figured out---just thought I would ask. Thanks as alway for all you do. Blessings, Peggy

These dies are so tempting and I love your project designs. However I have never found an adhesive that works for those delicate lines like in the lattice die. I always end up with either a sticky mess or with it falling off. Please, what did you use and how did you stick it down?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
To stick the die-cut shape down on paper of cardstock, use the “Pioneer” photo-safe glue stick
“I just dot it on in an up-and-down motion, NOT side-to-side, so that I won’t get globs of glue around those tiny lines of paper. Sometimes I go over it twice, quickly, before the glue dries. Works for me!" – Gail

Does "all die cutting machines" include Quik Kutz and the original Sizzix? Which ones do these dies actually work in?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
This is going to be a little longer answer so please bear with me.

All the die cutting machines are made to use cutting dies--we don't know of any machine that will only work with one type of cutting die. Also all the cutting dies are made to work in the machines. (It's like all embossing powders are made to be melted with all heat guns.)

We have sold many companies cutting dies over the last 18 months and we only had one die returned for non-performance. We believe that was a defective die. So out of thousands sold, only one die did not perform. While we don't own all the cutting machines on the market, we have used the webisode dies with the Big Shot, Epic and Evolution machines. We say and write the Paper Artist cutting dies will work on most die cutting machines simply because we don't own all of them but we believe they will work on all die cutting machines.

What a way to start the year! And those new papers. Isn't it fun to be able to "play" and produce such wonderful things for others. Thanks again ladies.

I really enjoyed seeing the new die cuts. Also all the ways they were used. My only problem was the video starting and stopping every few seconds. It was very annoying. Never had trouble until last week. Wont stop me from watching.

I was so excited to see this webisode this morning! As a VIP customer (yipee!) I got the wonderful surprise preview of the new catalog in the mail yesterday and DEVOURED it! I saw the new dies and was contemplating them, but now that I have seen them the decision has been made! Thank you so much!
