Grand Calibur....Never, Never....

Ok for those of you who own the Spellbinder's Grand Calibur... This cutie below.

NEVER.... NEVER use this in there...



See where it says for use with the Wizard Embossing & Die Cutting System. Yea it pays to read the thing before you try and run it through your new toy... I didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but it did. It didn't work out. My poor Grand Calibur that I've only used twice is on it's way back to Spellbinder to be fixed.

I really wanted to use it too cut out all the hearts pieces in the card below for my up coming class. I guess I will have to use double sided tape next time. I ended up cutting them all out with my Sizzix Big Shot Pro. Which I had to put 16 pieces of chip board in to make it tall enough. What a pain!! Oh well they are all finished.


The card did turn out pretty though. That cute Tilda with Violin is from the 2010 Merry Christmas Collection.The paper is the new Bo Bunny Valentine Collection. Really pretty. Both pieces are from the same paper. I love it when it's double sided!

Hope your having a fabulous day!! Thanks for stopping by..

How awful Heather that you have to send your machine back. Hubby got me a Vagabond and I'm not really sure I like it yet cause I can't figure out how to use the Spellbinders with it.......lol Hopefully someone will come up with instructions soon. Thanks for stopping by and the kind comments. Happy New Year my friend. "Hugs" Carol
