The following was taken from Ellen Hutson’s sandwich recipes!  I only have a cuttlebug so this is the info that I was looking for.  If you have any other die cut machine you can check here for that sandwich recipe!!

This machine is capable of cutting and embossing any Spellbinders™ die. I can not
guarantee that the B plates will not break in the Cuttlebug, but when
testing my B plates were fine. They did make that ever present cracking
noise though and therefore my hesitancy to say that they will never
break being I have broken many B plates over the last few months. I do
plan on testing the Spellbinders Thick White Mats and the Blue Mats
included in the Wizard Charm Embossing Kits to see whether I can find
an alternative to the acrylic plates. The white and blue mats provided
by Spellbinders are so much sturdier.

How to Use a Spellbinders™ Die in the Cuttlebug™:
Cutting Sandwich
1. A plate

2. C plate
3. Spellbinders™ die, blade side up
4. Paper or cardstock

Copic Coordinates…

ETA: Many have emailed and asked where I received my color chart for the Copic markers.   All you have to do is go onto their website and use the
"contact us" box.  Just type in there that you’d like to receive a color
chart and they will send one right out to you! 
Here is their link!

As much as I would love to have these markers, they are a little pricey and out of my price range right now!  I may have to purchase them one at a time or something!  Anyway, as I was looking to see which colors coordinated with the SU colors, I was led to Ellen Hutson’s website!  She has done so much research on these markers and has a bunch of info for you to sift through.  Here is the particular article that I was looking for.  It has the list of coordinating colors and even pics to see the color groups together.
