    Awesome! I see 2016. I hope I can still buy this device now. I've been looking into those devices for a while now. But you give such a good explanation and I was immediately sold. But I also read that some people only have three records. How do you explain this?

    hi ann,

    I had the problem with the double embossing folder(s). I was advised to purchase a transparent plate, which is slightly thinner than the other plates. then you use a blue plate and the transparent plate... that works perfectly for me.

      Hi Annemarieke, I also have problems with the double embossing folders, the first 5 cm goes well, after that the impression is blurred. Was that the problem with you too? And where did you buy that transparent plate? Thanks in advance, José

    When I see it this way, it's very easy. Only with me the blue plate, the mat and mold plus paper and a blue plate above that do not go through. The double do would then not rotate and would break. Do you have any idea why that happens? Or should I have 2 mats?
    I also read that there are 4 plates and a mat, mine comes with 3 plates and a black mat. Now I have had this doublé do for a long time.

      Hi Ann,

      That almost didn't work for me in the beginning. Over time (when you cut more) the machine runs smoother and gets better :-). I also only have 3 plates and a mat. I thought it was a green cutting mat off the top of my head, but I don't actually remember.

    I didn't know such a machine at all, but you can make very nice cards with it! I have so much fun with the butterflies!

    I admit that I don't know how Double Do XL works, good that you explain it here. It seems really useful to me.

  9. Wow, that card with the stairs is really very real! I didn't know this machine at all, but I think you can make beautiful things with it.

    I do think it is quite pricey.

    Wow how nice! Something like that is certainly fun to do!

  11. How very cool! Gives an extra dimension to your cards 🙂

  12. Elizabeth says:

    Awesome! Thanks for the good explanation.

  13. Beautiful! Much nicer than many cards you would buy in the store.

    How beautiful the results are!! Really cool cards.

    Yes, that's great, I also have a Double Do and have been very happy with it for years. It is so much easier than cutting very precisely manually with scissors. Someone responded that it is an investment, but I bought mine second-hand on Marktplaats. Cost about 20 Euro and works perfectly. Then the costs are not too bad!

  17. Connie says:

    They are all amazing!!!! I really like the standing cards with "for you" and "happy birthday". Would love to have such a device.

  18. Inge says:

    What beautiful cards! I have been curious about a Cricut machine for a long time. Such devices are indeed a bit pricey, but it is really worth it. I really like your cards!

  19. Oh, those are really nice.
    A device like this is a bit of an investment, but you will get the benefit out of it quickly, I think.

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
