I've recently purchased some nestabilities and have used them in my original sizzix machine - no problem. But, I'm thinking of getting either the Cuttle Bug or the Big Shot - I do like some of the larger Sizzix dies which do no fit into the original sizzix and I've recently purchased some of the embossing folders. So my dilemma is to either get the cuttlebug or the big shot. So I look to my fellow Scrappers to get your advice on which machine you like best. Does anyone have both the cuttle bug and big shot? If so, which one do you reach for most, which one works best?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I have the Big Shot. I chose it over the cuttlebug because even tho it isn't as portable, it does allow me to cut the new Sizzix Bigz XL dies. And being able to make my own boxes and such was worth it. The cuttlebug is just a little too small to handle those dies (ya think they did that on purpose? LOL).

Yeah I think they did! I bought my cuttlebug BEFORE the XL dies came out!

Love my bug though!

Okay - so the larger dies for the sizzix do not fit in the cuttlebug???

If so, then I guess that's the answer I was needing. I guess it's the big shot.

thanks!!!

I have all 3 of the manual sizzix machines- LOVE them all. I vote for the Big Kick

BigKick/BigShot. The Sizzix Texturz embossing plates won't fit in the Cuttlebug.

That is why I picked the BigKick over the CuttleBug.
