Gramdcalibur/Cuttlebug

Can anyone tell me if I can use the origianal metal backed Cuttlebug cutting dies (I have alphabets) in my new Grand Calibur machine.  I have purchased the raspberry adapter plate, but no mention is ever made of these metal backed dies being used,  They were very expensive amd I don't thinkl spellbinders do alphabets.   I would like to use them with my new machine.  Has anyone any experience please.

  1. Hi P.Ann, I had a look about and found this "With the C Cutting Plate on the bottom, place the die cut side facing up. Add the media on top of the die, with the desired pattern facing down. Cover with the W-025 Sizzix Original Mat and insert into the front of the Grand Calibur. Turn the handle and the sandwich exits at the back of the machine." on this website http://ucutathome.com/blog/spellbinders-grand-calibur-compatibility/ It tells you everything that is compatible with your Grand Calibur. If you still have no joy just ask me again and I will go ask Sheila at Crafty Ways as she has one in the shop I could borrow for a while. Good Luck, Anne x

  2. Thanks so much for that Anne. Unfortunately I do not have the Sissix plates (as I have never had that machine) so don't know how thick it is. I will however look at that craft site and see what I can find out. I will let you know. Ta again. P Ann X
