X-cut nesting dies - Please read!!!
It has come to my attention that a lot of people are unhappy with the new X-cut nesting dies as they only nest with the pack they come with. A crafty friend of mine bought the squares and the scallop squares as they were hoping they could stamp an image out onto a plain square and layer this onto a scalloped square like you would the spellbinders nesties but you can't as both dies are exactly the same size. I think they look an attractive prospect being cheaper than the spellbinders nesties but not if they're not going to do the same job. If it was me, I think I'd save my pennies for the spellbinders. Apparently, they cut well and certain shapes like stars that you would only layer up together anyway would be fine. To be fair it doesn't say that they are interchangable but I think everybody just expected them to work like the spellbinders ones. I just thought I'd give you the heads up and you can make a more informed decision on whether these are right for you or not. I hope this was helpful - one way or another!
Thanks for looking!!!
