I am looking to buy a sizzix or cuttlebug....I am just interested in the embossing feature as I have a cricut does anyone know which is the "better machine" their are so many different ones it all confusing!!!
I use the Sizzix big shot and really like it. I have never used cuttlebug so I can not comment on that one. I like sizzix all around. I use my cricut more since I purchased it in February but still pull out the sizzex for alot of die cuts.
i have a sizzix sidekick and a cuttlebug. both work great but i tend to use the sizzix sidekick more- its small and does the job quickly. i do a lot of embossing with it.
I'd check out CL before buying a new one. People sell their barely-used items for cheap.
How serendipitous!! I just popped over here from the kitchen forum to see what goes on on some of the other forums and maybe I can help you. I have an old original Sizzix machine I no longer need. If you want it and are willing to pay for the shipping as it's quite heavy, you can have if for free.
You can check me out on the kitchen forum. I've done some swaps with some of the folks over there who hopefully LOL would vouch for my trustworthiness. Just email me through my page.
