I purchased a Cuttlebug a few months ago, along with a few templates/cartriges/dies/ whatever you call them. But as of yet I have not even taken it out of the box. I know they are compatible with other machines dies(?), based on other posts in the forum, but not sure which, definitively. I'd love to start using it, or take it back to M's. Any input? Did I make a mistake purchasing, or make a mistake not using it yet? I guess I'd really like a cricut, but this was so much cheaper...

I got my Cuttlebug a long time ago and still use it for embossing. I dont use it for die cutting as much, but I do occasionally and you can use it with lots of companies dies (Sizzix, Spellbinders etc).

Take it out the box RIGHT NOW.

Play with it, love it.

I have a Big Shot, but it's basically the same thing. I do admit to being a teeny bit apprehensive when I first got it, now I sleep with it under my pillow.

Oh, and get some Spellbinders. They go together like peas and carrots.

Oh, and since I got my BS my poor Cricut sits in the corner collecting dust.

I have a BigShot and a Gazelle, I find them both immensely useful because they do different things.

I have both the Cricut and the Cuttlebug - they are both WONDERFUL! Take it out and use it! You will love it! I have a few spellbiders I use with it and love them but I still use my Cricut on a regular basis.

I'm determined to get my stamps organized today and not spend lots of time on the forum...but I HAD to see what you're all up to while I'm gone.

A few days ago I posted a bunch of stuff about the cuttlebug. My post also included the creatopia, but skip over the top parts and go down to the 'bug stuff.

I didn't do much with my 'bug at first, but my daughter comes over most Thursday nights to scrap with me and she started using it. I figured if she could use my bug, so could I...and it's great! I've got a cricut expression + cameo, but the bug is so nice for quick, smaller stuff.

I just got my embossing pad in today's ups delivery from sb. I'm anxious to play with it with my nesties, but not now...stamps are awaiting me...~Judy

Nope.. you did NOT make a mistake. It is a wonderful kind of bug. Check out some ideas on youtube. After a few times, you will be so thankful that you bought it.

I have a cuttlebug, big shot, big shot pro, and a cricut....I use them all!!!!! The cuttlebug is good for my smaller stuff. I think my big shot is probably my mosted used machine. I don't consider ANY of them to be mistakes!!! They are TOOLS!!!!!

I have the big shot and I've been thinking on getting rid of it to buy the cuttlebug... but I don't know if it's such a good idea... I mostly cut spellbinder dies.

Tahi, the Big Shot and the Cuttlebug are almost exactly the same, with the same functionality. The biggest difference is that the 'Bug folds up and is probably easier to transport if you go to crops regularly. So, I say keep your Big Shot and spend your money on more Nesties!
