I recently went through the decision of purchasing the cuttlebug or a sizzix product and ended up purchasing the Sizzix Texture Boutique being as I already have a cutting machine I really didn't need anything that would cut.

Anyway, my question is, are the Cuttlebug embossing folders able to be used with the Texture Boutique?

Ok thanks you guys for all your help!

That gives me tons of more options!

Any certain sites that you'd recommend purchasing from?

here, J's, M's, evil bay. You can find them LOTS of places. The Darice folders will work too.

just make sure you don't get the larger 5x7 folders. They are too wide

I just purchased a ton of darice folders. I am waiting on the mail man. Also, with other machines, I am able emboss metal stencils.

I use the sizzix, cuttlebug and darice embossing folders in my machine. I found a good deal on the darice dies for about $3. So of course I have more of those than the other two

I used the Cuttlebugs in my texture boutique, but the larger folders will not fit. Just an FYI.

I have a variety of folders that I use. I am kinda addicted!!! I also get some of the exclusive to Stampin' Up folders, worth a look if you want something different too.

Darice ones are nice too, and I love the bigger sized ones but they will not work in the textured boutique. I got my neice a textured boutique for christmas. She is just getting into scrapbooking and is almost 12. I figured just embossing was good for her. The big shot might be confusing for her so I got the textured one. Maybe as she gets older, I will get her a big shot. I am excited to give her the "purse" for christmas!!

I will certainly give it a shot. I like Stamping Up products and in fact purchased my first stamps from them! I am primarily a quilter and am trying to keep my spending to a dull roar, plus I recently lost my job and have less money to invest. As that situation resolves itself, I hope to have more to spend.

You can use almost any embossing folders

what is the difference between the sizzix and the texture machine? I can emboss with my regular sizzix, so I don't get it.

The Texture Boutique only does embossing, which means it's a lighter and cheaper machine for those who don't intend to use dies.

For me, I love the big shot because I do cut as well. But for Christmas I bought two tweens on my list the texture boutique because they are beginners. Figured the tweens would love the purse aspect and it is super easy to use!!
