I don't own the CB machine. Don't plan on buying it. I did, however, purchase the swirl background folder and Hippy Chick. As for me, it is not the matter of spending the money, instead it is because of my sister. LOL She is always being dragged into these vortexes.... if I sit back and wait it works for the best. See..... she just got the BIG SHOT and all its toy parts, all the Cuttlebug Embossing folders and all the alphas.....(and already had the Cricut, the Sidekick and 2 of the original red sizzix machines - one for home and one for her classroom)

The best part of all is I live next door to her and can play on her toys any time.... lol.... Funny thing, about 5 years ago, when I was living in another state I called her and BEGGED her to go to Mike's with a coupon to buy me the original sizzix machine and the lollipop alpha. She was soooo totally against them -- told me not to waste my money (In the end she went to Mike's and got them for me).....Within a month, she also had to have a sizzix. That was 5 years ago. Now she swears I caused her to be sucked into this vortex and she has no will to stop!!! So I get the blame and the toys to play with!

I look and drool at all the beautiful creations made with the Cuttlebug, but I just can't bring myself to spend the money.

I don't have a Cuttlebug and I'm not tempted either.

I have a Spellbinders Wizard that does way more than the Cuttlebug.

I've decided that 2007, for me, needs to be the year of simplicity. I'm not adding any huge-o gadgets. Somehow I always need to buy what everyone else has and then get disappointed with the fact that my stuff doesn't turn out the same way. So, I'm sticking with using what I have and adding what I love: new stamps, chipboard, patterned paper, and ribbon. I hope I can remember this post when walking through those aisles with a coupon in hand...

I've not purchased any of the die cutting machines. I KNOW that i'd spend oodles of money on the dies - and I'm worried I wouldn't use them often enough to justify the money.

I do have my Coluzzle and a fair amount of money invested on those templates - so that takes care of my "cutting" needs. And I do LOVE those embossed cards - but again I can't justify the purchase. I may have to see if my LSS has the bug and/or embossing folders available for use...

I have resisted and resisted and resisted.........no die cutting machines for me. I absolutely love the embossing it can do. It is killing me, but, I know me and I know I wouldn't use it to its full potential. Or, I would over use it and everything I made would look the same. LOL. I may give in over time, but for now, I am staying away.

I don't have one.........yet. I'm trying to decide between the Big Shot and the Bug. I don't need it for the diecutting, because I have a Wishblade, but would LOVE it for the embossing. I love embossed images, but HATE the time it takes to do them where they look decent. So NOW my Fiskars embossing plates will be USED! But I still have to pick which one I want and actually GET it!

I don't own a Cuttlebug, but I'll admit I've been tempted by it lately. I already have the original Sizzix machine, so I think for starters I might just buy a Cuttlebug embossing folder and/or an alphabet (I *really* like the Olivia alpha!) and try them out on the Sizzix first.

I love the idea that the Cricut can do different sizes of a font, but I know I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. As rarely as I scrapbook anymore, I can use Word to print out my titles backwards and cut them out myself and save the $220ish.

I'm not familiar with the Big Shot and the Wizard... and I'm getting the feeling I probably "shouldn't" try to find out more...

Well, I gave in and bought one and LOVE it. I don't need it for die cutting either but I LOVE the embossing folders. I liked dry embossing but it was so time consuming and also hard to do on dark paper. This little baby is so slick! full background dry embossed in 3 seconds. I probably wouldln't have bought it at full price but for $40 I thought it was a deal. I have SU stamp sets that I spent that much on and never use. I've already used my bug several times.

I don't have one and have no interest. I have not bothered reading the threads. There are so many other fun stuff that I could use. I am saving for some Karen Foster snap stamps. I could see myself using those more.

I don't plan on getting one. I am happy with the embossing folders (CB) however - use them in my Sizzix.

I keep resisting . . but I'm sure I will eventually run out of resistance! However, I really only want it for the embossing folders - I already have Quickutz and the Cricut (an embarassing excess, I know). But, for now, I do not have one!

Either the BS or the Bug are great machines and are fully cross compatible in die and embossing products.

I have tendinitis issues in my good/right hand/arm, so I went with the BS because the handle was larger and more comfortable for me and that was more important for me than the fold up platform the Bug has.

Although, I am wondering if I could spray paint my Big Shot celery . . .

Sure! That's not a bad idea at all!

Ditto for me.

Big Shot and Wizard can do everything the Cuttlebug can, and all 3 dies and embossing stencils/folders can be used interchangeably between these 3 machines, altho in some instances a special impression kit may be needed to optimize the embossing performance if you are crossing products between machines.

I don't even know what one is! LOL

(I am stuck overseas until my husband is reassigned, so I am WAY out of the loop).

So if it makes you feel better, you will always be ahead of at least one person - ME!!

It's a personal die cutting machine that can also pressure (dry) emboss, using their own line of embossing folders, and other brands that may be made of brass, or plastic texture plates, etc.

The Cuttlebug dies are steel rule, so they can cut through not only card stock, but lightweight chipboard, coaster material, felt, fabric, polyshrink, stencil plastic, acetate/transparency, fun foam, thin sheet metal, etc.

The machine can also use other brand dies, as long as they'll fit through the 6" feed.

I don't have one either. I feel the all of you have covered anything that I might have said. It does make me feel good that I am not totally out of the loop.

I don't have one. I do have a Sizzix and a Sidekick. I purchased these last year when they started selling them inexpensively. I have over the year purchased the dies and embossing folders, which were also reduced, or with a coupon, or even on the clearance rack. I don't use them as much as I thought I would, which is disappointing because they take up so much of my stamping/scrapping space.

I don't have a CB but I wish I had a friend nearby so I could try one out...I just can't afford the investment. Maybe in 6-8 months time they'll be on ebay for cheap? A girl can dream...

BTW, the cards made with the embossing templates are so beautiful but I try to avoid any threads convincing me I need it.

Where do you live? Maybe there's a Cuttlebugger who would help you out!

I wasn't tempted by any of these newfangled gizmos until I found out I can use the Fiskars texture plates in them. Now temptation has reared its ugly head. I'm resisting, though, because I still have way too many stamps to buy.

To show you how ignorant I am (or how good I've been about avoiding this subject altogether) I don't even know what the CB looks like or how it works. Right now I'm imagining a smaller portable version of an old fashined crank operated laundry wringer. If I find out that I'm right, maybe I'll head to the antique mall -- DH likes antiques more than he likes stamping toys .

Yes, rather similar. But, I wouldn't run any dies through a vintage laundry wringer--might ruin my dies!

well, the 50% off coupon still sits. I didn't give in! It took me forever to get my Xyron out of the box and use it! Since I don't use a lot of dies on my scrapbooks (WHEN I do THAT!), I haven't justified getting it just for the cool backgrounds (YET!!!)
I really, really need to use my background stamps that are taking up space and crying out USE MEEEEE!

I'm a SU demo & rarely buy anything but stamps, paper, etc., but I have jumped on the Cuttlebug band wagon. I never thought I would get a die cut machine, but i got a Christmas bonus and wanted something fun. My reasons for choosing the Bug are the following: It's little, the dies are little (a whole alphabet is about 2x2x6- compare that to the Sizzix ones!), the dies & the machine are relatively inexpensive when compared to some of the other brands, I loved the embossing feature, and it's compatible with other brands of dies. As JulieHRR said, the BigShot is pretty comparable, but I went with the Bug simply because it takes up less space (my storage is very limited). I have used it a whole bunch, along with my stamps, so I don't feel like a traitor at this point!

OK, so now I'm wondering if I could find a really cheap laundry wringer -- the texture plates are pretty inexpensive and are pretty useless right now, since I just don't have the patience to use them with my stylus - so I'd be willing to give it a shot. I really have no interest in die cuts -- just the dry embossing.

HMMM, are pasta makers wide enough for the texture plates? Do any of my friends have a pasta maker?

LOL -- clearly I have to stop reading any threads that even mention the Cuddlebug!

I did just read on another thread that the QK Revolution dies will work on the Cuttlebug too...

The machine can also use other brand dies, as long as they'll fit through the 6" feed.
Thanks Julie! You are so kind to help inform those of us who are not!

Oh, THANKS! RESISTANCE! I must resist...LOL!

Like I said I need to see it, touch it, and then fall in love with it. I would have never bought myself this DIE CUT machine, but I love it now! I was not so pleased with the hand held one I bought, and was wishing I had not done it, but I love the REVOLUTION! My hands are just a little weak for the regular Qk and though it was cool, I love the bigger one.

I agree with Jen70 who creates beautiful cards without one! I was very tempted, but I have lots of other things to create beautiful cards. I think it's a fad also.

I don't have Sizzix, Cricut, or the bug, and I don't intend to get any of them. Not because I don't want them, but because I probably couldn't figure them out - LOL! I'm not too swift when it comes to anything with moving parts.

I did get a CB but if I did want to use the CB embossing folders in my full size Sizzix what do I need to do for that?
