Default Sizzix help

So I got myself a Sizzix!!Yay for me!
My problem is: I need to make 1" circles. I cut little squares and place them over the 1" circle on the die. When I run the "sandwich" through, there are dip marks left on cutting pads. Is this normal?

Whew, thanks. I thought I was doing something wrong. How often do you change them?

Yup, it's normal. Eventually you can replace them but when I had mine I got a lot of use out of it. My niece has it now and I think she's still using the original one it came with.

I have never changed them...i figure as long as they are not cracked and working, why get new ones? You should alternate the plates though so that they have the same even wear.

Someone on this board told me to flip it over and use the other side of the board. And it "bends" the board back straight now. So if you have not flipped it over yet, do that. It will last you another few months.

I bought an extra set last week the were 40% off at Michaels. I was worried that one day they would snap into from all the cut markers. Glad to know they really do last a long time!
