I just wanted to ask an opinion of everyone. I just recently bought a cricut expression the other day, but I still love my sizzix big kick!!, does anyone out there think it is to much stuff to have to die cut with?

Nope...never too much. I have a Cricut, Slice, and a Cuttlebug. Each one serves a different purpose. I am most likely to share the Bug when I go to crops because there is nothing electronic to break. The Slice is so portable that I can cart it to a friends house or another room in the house. Wishing you a lot of fun with all your gadgets.

Oh gosh! I have the Cricut and the Slice and Big Kick (sizzex) and the original Sizzex too. I use my Sizzex Big Kick for the larger embossing folders and dies. I will turn loose of the Original Sizzex eventualy.

Yeah, this isn't very excessive - they're two very different kinds of tools.

Never too many! I love my Big Kick though I generally use it for embossing. I do have several alpha sets that I use with it as well. Plus I own 3 Circuts, the Expression and Create, and then my original baby bug. I keep the smaller one on my desk so it's handy to use and the other are stored on my rolling cart and I grab them when my project involves more than my baby bug will do.

I love the big kick for embossing and spellbinders dies.....and the Cricut is just awesome for embellishments and fonts.

I have the cricut and love it but like everyone has said the sizzix big kick and cricut do are used for different tasks so it is on my list to buy next. So if you can buy them both.

I would say it depends on the scrapper. I have a sizzix, old red and new big shot express, as well as a quickutz revolution I got at the Goodwill for $20 never used.
I have never purchased an electronic cutter as I have found no constant need for one. I just buy what I need cut from others. Friends and stores.
But my philosophy is if it makes you happy it can't be all bad.
Don't sweat it and have fun.
