Did you know that the Precision Plate is On Sale this week? Yes, through November 14, 2015. Normally this item is priced at $25 and right now through the 14th it is $18.75.
So, this has prompted a few of my customers to ask me about the Precision Plate and how to use it so I decided it was time for a video. Plus, I thought I could also show you a Sneak Peak at some new Glimmer Paper called Blushing Bride (sooooo gorgeous!!) and a new Thinlits Die called Bloomin' Heart. So, here we go!!
I will admit that I wasn't terribly impressed with the Precision Plate when it first came out and I will tell you why.
First, I was not using it properly with my Glimmer Paper. The Glimmer Paper needs to go Glimmer Side down onto your plate. If the Glimmer is face up, you will have a harder time cutting through the plastic coating on the back of the paper.
Secondly, I had not tried it in conjunction with my Magnetic Plate. I was trying to go strictly by directions which said that you get the best results by using it with the Big Shot Platform. Plus, I was worried that if I stuck it to my Magnetic Platform, I would never get it off again! lol! That's not a worry. It slides right off. Now, I don't know if it is just because my Big Shot machine is looser or what, but I had no luck using it with the regular platform but loads better luck using it with the Magnetic Platform.
I decided to make a video that details all three ways of using the thinlit die called Bloomin' Heart. First, I used it with the Precision Plate and the regular Big Shot Platform (as recommended, which as you will see doesn't work for me.) Then with the Magnetic Platform and the Precision Plate over the top of that (which worked perfectly! . . . at least in my Big Shot Machine), and then I used the die with the Magnetic Platform without the Precision Plate. (Which, I feel might have worked better had I used a couple of vellum shims.) Here's the video - enjoy!
