Well, I did it...I finally went out and got the Cuttlebug. Let me tell you, I am lovin' it! I got a few of the embossing folders and only one set of die cuts. I think I'll be using it primarily for embossing and for cutting with my Sizzix dies. The Sizzix dies are bigger and the Cuttlebug dies seem to all be pretty small for my taste. The Cuttlebug takes the Sizzix Bigz dies perfect as well as their embossing templates. It also works with the Fiskars Embossing templates only the impression varies a little. Some of the Fiskars templates aren't etched as deep as the Cuttlebug folders and the Sizzix embossing templates are right in between those two. So, The Cuttlebug embossing folders are the best. Then the Sizzix come in second and the Fiskars are third. If I can figure out how to get a deeper embossed look I will let you know. I'm still playing around with this new toy. Anyway, here's my very first Cuttlebug Card. If you have any questions, just let me know. Also, if you know of any special techniques for the Cuttlebug, I'd love to know those too. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great evening!
