My old red machine served me well for many years, but I was ready to upgrade. I really like the Big Shot so far, and it does have more versatility with the bigger dies.
THANK YOU so much for this info. Although it's not what I want to hear, it is very helpful and very much appreciated!
Now- can someone PLEASE verify something for me?
Is it true that even though you can not use the Bigs Top Note die in the old Sizzix machine, you CAN use it in the Cuttlebug??? I have a bug and just really want the Big Top Note die. If I can use it in the Cuttlebug, I will buy it now. But I don't want to be stuck with a die I can't use. I am waiting until I find the answer to this before I submit my mini catty pre-order. So, if someone has this die AND a cuttlebug, would you be so kind as to find out if they are compatible? Your help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance for your help! You all have been great with all the info that's been posted!!
