  1. Dear Jennifer,
    You are my go to crafter and artist. Your information is always helpful and positive, such a bright light. Your share your talents and
    with your crafting communty and fellow creators. Thank you for all you do.

  2. Thanks so much, Jennifer! You are a life saver!! I have been looking for a solution to this problem. I really appreciate you 😄👏🏻

  3. Very good idea and I shall be buying those double sided plates for the larger Gemini soon. I haven’t used mine much because every thing warped, not just the plates. The magnetic piece won’t even hold the dies anymore due to the warping. Thanks so much for the information and your hard work in finding solutions to the many issues we have with some products.

  4. What “Sandwich” with the taped together green and clear plate do we now use for using embossing folders? Thansk so muc for this wonderful video and all the tips.

  5. Thanks Jen and Ken! I was getting pretty discouraged with the amount of money I was spending on buying replacement cutting plates. These tips will save alot of people ALOT of $$. 🙂

  6. Thank you so much. I was spending a lot on new plates all the time. It worked like a charm. My plastic shim was also warped and it worked on that too.

  7. After watching one of your videos I bought the i-crafter plate. While this is better it does still have some warping. Would the hot water trick work with that plate as it is a different kind of plastic. Thanks Jennifer xx

    1. I used this method on my I-crafter plate and it worked like a charm. Mine looked like rolling hills and now it’s nice and flat.

  8. This works GREAT!! I’ve tried many other ways to flatten my cutting plates and this is the only one that works! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
