    Default cuttlebug

    Should I buy one?

    I have a cricut and use it a lot. The cuttlebug can emboss and the cricut can't. For those of you that have one, can you tell me more?

    Thanks!

    I got one for Christmas and I just use it for embossing. I really like that you can use pretty much any brand of folders too. I would go to cricut.com and read the message boards. There are always lots and lots of threads about the cuttlebug on there. It is a huge forum.
    I found a blog that gave instructions on recipes for using different brands of folders in the cuttlebug which is very helpful, just can't find it right now.

    YES!!!! and the accessories too! I have heard that Walmart sells the embossing folders for about $5 which is approx. what you pay at M's with the coupon.

    I have one die that came with my bug and it is a postage stamp that you can emboss different pictures in (it came with 4 emboss pictures). I think you only get that bonus if you buy it at M's?

    You mentioned having a Cricut, but if by chance you also have a Sizzix, you can use the Cuddlebug dies with that too. As soon as I saw the Cuddlebug stuff I started buying that for my Sizzix because they are so cute.

    My mom told me Walmart was $5.97 for the folders.
    Michaels it at least $8.99 I think (some are more I noticed)
    I have them on my website for $4.99

    My mom and Aunt both have the cuttlebug and love it. I would buy one too but my mom has one I can use

    So if you buy a cuttlebug you can use Sizzix and Quickcutz dies with it too?
    And what are the folders?
    Scrapbooking tools are so confusing! :S

    I am sad I missed out on an extra 10%. It's still in the box. Today is dd's bday party so I haven't even taken it out of the box. It was a complete impulse buy! I love those shopping trips.

    You know you are running out to Michael's with your coupon as soon as the open right? hee heeee!
