embossing. sometimes you don't want to turn on the cricut just for one tiny shape. the cricut can be cutting out titles while you cut out shapes on the 'bug. you can still use the cuttlebug in a blackout.
I purchased the cricut to cut out letters and shapes, but it does not emboss. I bought the cuttlebug mainly to use with my Fiskars texture templates, but now if there is something I want quick it is much easier to bring it out rather than the cricut. Mostly use the cricut now for alphas and the cuttlebug for shapes and embossing. I love them both!
Is the Cuttlebug the best thing for Embossing? Should I sell the Fiskars Emboss thing I have? I haven't tried it yet...maybe I just see if I still have the box and return it to Michaels...Hmmmmmmmmmm...
I love the cuttlebug for the embossing folders. They're only about $2 w/ coupon and make gorgeous cards. I don't use it for diecuts at all because I have so many cricut cartridges. Go to the provocraft website to see all the embossed cards. If you don't make cards you probably don't need it!
I don't make cards and I LOVE my Cuttlebug. I love the cheap dies that you can get and the dies that cut and emboss ROCK! I use my embossing folders to make stuff for my layouts. For example, I used the heart shaped die to cut out a heart and then ran it through the swirly embossing folder to give it some dimension!
Ok, I have a dumb question? Whats the difference between the cuttlebug at wallyworld for 19.99 and the little dies that go to it and the one at Michaels for more money? Is there one I should be looking for and does anyone have an example of work it does?
