I'm in the market...Big Shot is same price as Cuttlebug. I have embossing folders and Spellbinder Nestabilities. I have a Cuttlebug at home but am needing a machine where I'm going away to for 4 months -no, not jail! Lol. Big Shot looks neat. Which one should I get since they're the same price?

You can use Big Shot with more variety of dies, I think. I have both Big Shot & Cuttlebug & currently use Cuttlebug the most, but that fluctuates. If you are planning on purchasing bigger dies -- some Tim Holtz & Sizzix  (dies are thicker, longer), than I'd go with Big Shot. It seems to handle more, isn't as heavy & I can use it easier. Cuttlebug is super for embossing folders & use with Spellbinder dies, I'm not sure if Cuttlebug works for everything; I do know it's heavy! Not much help, huh?

The Big Shot!

Thank you Ladies! This helps.

I love my Cuttlebug!

If you are taking your cutting machine with you the cuttlbug would be easier but if you have room to spare the Big Shot may be better in the long run. I prefer using the cuttlebug as it isn't as bulky.

I use my cuttlebug for even the longer thicker dies (I purchased the longer plates).  It does everything.

I'm with Cat, the Big Shot!!  I had a Cuttlebug but prefer the BS much more!!!

I've had a Big Shot for about a year now and love it. It's easy to use and very sturdy. Not too heavy either so easy to carry around as well. Hope this helps! Happy card making!
You Ladies are the best. Looks like I'll give the Big Shot a try. It's always been so much more money but on 7 Kids College Fund, it was the same price. Many thanks, cheers!

Well if you already own the CB, I would say get the BigShot.....ESPECIALLY if you can bring it back with you!  Then you'll have both, it would be kind of silly to have 2 CB's.....or would it?  :)    (glad you are not being incarcerated!)  LOL

I didn't want you all to get the wrong impression. Lol. I Weill most likely leave it there as I'm planning an annual journey.
