Bad news - The letterpress is too wide for cuttlebug

I got the letterpress. Had pre-ordered from Ohmycrafts. You can shove it in but it's a tad wide to engage the rollers. Maybe some hubbys will help out in sanding the edges so that it could roll through. But for the rest we have to use the big shot as I heard some epic 6 have  problems  cutting the thinner dies (like nestabilities) and some do not have enough force at the center of the cut sometimes. Well after holding out for so long and finding alternate ways for even big shot dies I have caved in and ordered big shot :(  &  X(
Btw most of the yahoo emoticons work on my blog if you want to add them in your comments (which I hope you are making ;) )
here's the link for exact type(write) to use

and if you want to add it to your own blog
then here's another link - just follow the directions

I was wondering if it would fit in the Big Shot. Thanks : ) That goes in the plus column. On the negative, especially as I look around at everything I have to do, do I *need* this?

thank you for letting us know. I haven't bought the big shot becuase shipping is ridiculous to canada. I will stay with my cuttlebug and just make do. :) I'm looking forward to seeing posts of your pretty creations using the bigshot :) :)
