I am always looking for new scrapbook products/machines because I love using and buy new products. There is one catch though...it has to be within my budget and very user friendly. The cuttlebug is both...and it is awesome. It is great for embossing and very versitile. It can use it's own embossing folders and others...with a little help. It is so easy to use and small enough to store anywhere. It is absolutely worth the money.
