Big Shot or Cuttlebug - DECISION

Well I gave it a lot of thought and took on board all your advice and help, I was 90% convinced I was going to buy the Big Shot........but all things considered I ended up getting the:


the main reason was the compact size and I have decided to keep my Red Sizzix! (for now)
So far - I am thrilled with my purchase and hope to post some cards made with it very soon.

Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful hot weekend!

Enjoy your Cuttlebug. One of the reasons why I like it is that I can keep it on my desk and it doesn't take up much room.

I have the old red sizzix and the big shot. I think the cuttlebug is probably easier to carry with. I do love the embossing plates cuttlebug has and I think you will enjoy it.
Hope you birthday was wonderful!

Hope you have a long and happy crafting future together hunni xx ;)

I don't have either one, but I still have my red sizzix too, and I think cuttlebug embossing folders can be used on that altho i'm not sure cos i don't have any to try out lol.
full of useless information me! pmsl

I am very happy with my CB Sue and I sure you will be too. I recommend you definitely get Swiss Dots and Divine Swirl embossing folders. I find them the most versatile for card making. Enjoy K

Joy said...

Good for you Sue I love mine but I need more dies and folders - there are some fab new ones xx

I love my Cuttlebug - have to confess I do more embossing than die-cutting with it! The embossing folders are a bit addictive - is it me or is everything about crafting just a bit addictive!!
Looking forward to seeing your Cuttlebug creations.
Thanks for you comments on my pink cards - thought you might like them! Pink is still well out of my comfort zone, even though older daughter is becoming pink obsessed!
Hope you're having a good day,
Cathy xx

Interesting choice! I'm still stuck with my red sizzix but using the cuttlebug embossing folders and nestabilities with it just fine so I'm reluctant to get another piece of kit - when I can spend the money on stamps!
