      I am finally getting to play with my Christmas present. YAY!  I have different types of dies: Sizzix, Memory Box, Spellbinders, Bigz, etc.  I am following the instructions for the different sandwiches and noticed that the recipe for the sandwish that goes with the sizzlets (would apply to spellbinders, QuiKutz and memory box) isn't thick enough. 

       

      I added an embossing pad and it only cut part of it.  I finally decided to grab my C Plate from my Cuttlebug.  I got the normal crack sound and the dies cut just fine. 

       

      What do you use for the thinner dies?  Did I miss something?

        I use the clear plates plus you have to use the shim for the thinner dies. You have to do that for Timmy's thinner dies to. Does that make sense?

          I had to get a Solo Thin Die Adapter which I place on top of the Solo Shim and the Solor Platform and then I'm able to cut with my Memory Box dies.

            I just use both clear plates, the shim and the adapter.

              I used the solo plate, shim and both clear cutting plates. I ended up having to use my C plate in order to get the thinner dies to cut. Strange…..

                Odd! I only have Spellbinders and I'm like Linda and use that Solo Thin Die Adapter. I know that Timmy the God has done a couple of videos where he explains in detail. Let me see if I can find one for you (now that I'm a big girl and can attach links and use emoticons ;)) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7Le7nmGsvE

                  Lisa, Sizzix makes a wafer-thin die Adapter for use with the really thin dies.

                  There is also the solo shim that comes with the machine

                      I don't have to much of a problem. I guess trial and error and some homemade shims keeps me rolling without difficulty.

                        as I have both a Big Shot and Vagabond……I found that the Multipurpose platform that came with my big shot work best for the Spellbinders and such!!

                        Haven't noticed any problem with the Sizzlits…….use the two clear plates and the platform that came with my Vagabond!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                          Lisa, I think that they answered your question. You totally need the platform & solo shim along with the plexi plates that came with the machine, along with the wafer thin adapter that alas, is sold separately. Until you get that, try different pieces of chipboard. I do think that the adapter is a better option; unlike the chipboard, it's a firmer surface without any give.
                          BTW, thanks for your gallery comments on my tags; and I actually am innocent of buying the last Memory Box tree. I got it at my LSS, where they have a pretty good line of them.

                                That's sooo odd! It worked yesterday and now it's not working for me either….
