    Ohh you know I'm in please. Vicki do you have trouble cutting the white Window in the third house. I have a precision plate but still have lots of problems with that die.

    Assuming you mean the white window on my ice skating card, which is the same pink window die cut on your pink card,
    I have no trouble cutting the white window.

    I do not know what a "precision plate" for die cutting is, but I have noticed you mention it often, so I assume you use it to get cleaner cuts, as in more fully cut die cuts.

    When I have a die that doesn't cut out the entire shape, I add a shim, or a piece of paper, or a piece of cardboard, or those junk mailer credit cards, between the die and the top plate, to get enough pressure on the die to MAKE IT give me a clean cut image.

    ((Define shim: a thin, often tapered piece of material (such as paper, cardboard, plastic, or wood) used to fill in space between things (as for support, leveling, or applying additional pressure against the adjacent surface)))

    Works for me on everything from Cottage Cutz, to Art Impressions, to Sizzex, (to name a few brands).
    Once I put in too THICK a shim and it cracked my top plate, but since there was only an internal crack, and the plate didn't break, I still use the plate, crack and all, and it works great.

    Hope adding a shim helps you get a better cut, as in a more complete cut, where all the intricate pieces cut out, and pop out, particularly since I am working on at least one assumption when answering your question.

    P.S.

    Is the octopus seen through a window, or is the octopus looking through one?
    I am not seeing what you are seeing on that one, but I LOVE it.

    Thanks Vicki. Glad you like them.
    The Octopus is looking out. I was hoping that the bubbles outside the window
    Would help.

    This sounds like a possible swap topic for me. I'll see what happens before I commit.

    I hope you can find time in your BUSY schedule to participate.
    I always LOVE your ATCs.

    I will put you on the lurker couch for now.
    It is a comfy sofa, and there are others already keeping the space warm.
