Dear Fellow Crafters,
Don’t you just love it when you discover new things? Recently I went to Hobby Lobby to take advantage of their sale and found these amazing Sizzix accessories:
The following find is a set (2) of mini cutting plates. These are perfect for the small die cuts I have.
Sizzix Accessory – Cutting Pads, Mini, 1 Pair
Originally designed for use in the Sidekick Machine, this pair of Cutting Pads also works in the SophistiCut, Big Shot, BIGkick and Vagabond machines.
Constructed of high-quality polycarbonate plastic, these see-through Cutting Pads allow for easy die-cutting and embossing of Sizzix chemically etched dies and embossing products (Clearlits, small Embosslits, small and medium Sizzlits and Simple Impressions) in the Sidekick machine. Simply sandwich the die and material to be cut between the Cutting Pads and roll through the machine.
Add a Sizzix Adapter (sold separately) to create a sandwich for accommodating competitors’ wafer-thin dies.
Each Cutting Pad measures 4 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ x 1/8″ and lasts for thousands of cuts. All Sizzix Cutting Pads are meant to be used on both sides. When both sides of the Cutting Pads are worn out, it is time for replacement . CuttingPadsConstructionPC PlasticProduct Weight0.06 lb.Packaged Weight0.140
The second item are Release Sheets .#663575 Release sheets:
Sizzix Making Essential – Release Sheets, 4″ x 6″, 25 Pack
For the easiest die-cut ejection, Sizzix Release Sheets offer a clean, no-tear ejection of the die-cut from a Sizzix chemically etched die—including intricate designs. The 4″ x 6″ sheet size works with most Thinlits and Framelits dies. Made from top-quality coated paper, each easy-to-use sheet leaves no residue behind for a fun, no-mess experience.
To use, place the Release Sheet between the material and the die before creating the Sizzix sandwich. (Please note: The shiny side of the Release Sheet should be facing the material.) If the Release Sheet embeds itself into the die, it can be used for easy ejection of multiple die-cuts.
