After watching the latest Glitter Girl, I too have become obsessed with the pinking edge circles. From reading other posts, it seems the Nestabilities die is no longer available.

So...I will try the electronic cutter route. Anyone know if there is a Cricut cart with pinking edge circles?

What about a SVG cutting file (not Silhouette file), preferably free?

On Art Philosophy there's a pinking edge circle. Just used it the other week to make a birthday banner. I think A Country Life, or whatever it's called, has one too.

I've been on the lookout for circles with pinked edges also this past week. The only thing I've found so far is a MS punch all over the page punch with a pinked circle. J's has them and they are not on sale - so you can use your coupon. I would like to find something with various sizes though....

One of the issues is that ideally you would want to have a "nested" set of cutting files.

If you only have one cut file, then as you increase the size of the circle the number of "pinks" will not change, so they will spread out and become more shallow. I am guessing that is what will happen with the Cricut image as you change the size.

If you have a cricut, Accent Essentials has a lot of interesting round shapes that could be used like the pinked circle. It also has a spikey one.
I also have the SCAL program working with my Cricut & found a pinked shape, not quite as I wanted it, so I copied it again, off set it slightly, welded the 2 together & YIPPEE! Pinked circles in any size I want!

ronaba, I didn't even think to look on the SCAL program. There IS a pinked circle!! I did as you suggested and combined and welded- it worked great!! I made up a bunch of pinked circles of different sizes from about an inch to 6 inches. Thanks for the suggestion!

Good afternoon everyone. I was at Archiver's today and picked up some nesting pinking circle dies from QuickKutz. I haven't been able to use them yet, but thought that it might be a help for those looking for dies. There are 8 in the package. Have a great day.

The $1 pinked nesting circles bestcee mentions are on my blog! I got an order for them from someone who saw her link. Thanks, bestcee! Now, I REALLY have to do something about the “Think Spring” header on my blog! It takes me forever to change that thing, so I put it off. (Till fall? Really?) I need to come up with something that works year-round. [error_in_url=http://cricutcard-iologist.blogspot.com]

I had the same problem. Thought I find them, but no!
I did find Quickutz on ebay! They work exactly
the same as spellbinders!

I just got a set. I wonder if they wonder about the run on them.

found a great nested set in the silhouette store by samantha walker. also a nice set from lori whitlock. of course this won't help a cricut user, but in case anyone else is looking !
