What Is Shimming??

Maria B the Sizzix Lady, with Its’ Cheaper Than Therapy.com is here today to take the mystery out of Shimming.

The main use of a shim is to adjust something to fit properly, in our case the tape is making it a tiny bit tighter in the areas where you need it. When you think of it that way, you are basically raising the cardstock just a smig so that it hits in all the right spots of the dies blade.

Thanks Maria for sharing this simple yet perfect solution when using our Big Shots. Be sure to visit It’s Cheaper Than Therapy.com for an amazing selections of Sizzix products and lots of inspiration. You can also visit their booth at most of our Scrapbook Expo’s.
