Cuttlebug vs. Big Shot

Started this discussion. Last reply by Laura Fontaine Dec 31, 2011. 28 Replies

I'm considering a new die cutting system... don't much like the Epic Six because I can't seem to figure out what I'm cutting since the die goes first and paper goes down etc.   Can't decide if I want…Continue

Jar Ideas Anyone?

I hate throwing jars away, plastic or glass.  I was thinking that after they have been washed and the lables removed... there has got to be a way to make a little gift out of them or something.  I…Continue

I have lots of Stampin' Up dye ink.  I haven't used it in some time and I notice that it's drying up... can I use another brand of re-inker as long as it's dye ink... or if I want to switch brands do…Continue

"Thanks Gina for clearing up something for me and that is whether Memento Ink is water based or oil based. Thanks so much. Now, I finally know. Water based. Thanks heaps."

"That sounds great, I love that my hubby is crafty in his own way, too!  I don't know I can get him that far into crafting, but he is great at helping me alone when I get creatively stuck :)"

"Thanks Alex.  I have not used the Grand Calibur but was a good price and with the larger plate, thought it might be handy.  Lots to learn - still use the old sizzix but gather the larger dies do not work with it.  Thanks again."

"I have the Big Shot! It is terrific. I didn't like the CB as it was not durable-broke right away.  The Big Shot does a great job and I haven't found anything that it does not do. Works great with dies, embossing and spellbinders…"

"I love my cuttlebug. I broke the first one, but I blame myself for forcing something thru that was too thick.  So far I've had no problems."

Regina Cooper replied to Danielle Reed's discussion Cuttlebug vs. Big Shot
"I'm sorry I didn't mean to say Sissix dies can't be used with the Cuttlebug but there are other dies and EF that can be used with the Big Shot that can't with the Cuttlebug is what I meant to say.  Sorry about that."

Alex Turner replied to Danielle Reed's discussion Cuttlebug vs. Big Shot
"Hi you can use sizzix dies with the cuttlebug, I use the thick and thin sizzix dies and all the sizzix embossing folders in the cuttlebug, I am afraid it is an urban myth that you cant. I demonstrate this regularly at local craft shops and events.…"

Laura Fontaine replied to Danielle Reed's discussion Cuttlebug vs. Big Shot
"I have a cuttlebug and use it a lot.  Only difference between the Grand Calibar and cuttlebug is that the Grand Calibar can use larger paper and die.  Where I take classes, they use the cuttlebug almost exculsively.  Of course, they…"

"I LOVE my Cuttlebug! It was a (requested) gift from 2 of my daughters in July of 2008, and I use it on almost every card I create. I don't remember ever using a Big Shot. For Christmas DH gave me a Grand Calibur so I can use the larger dies."

Hi Danielle,

the Pop up oven is template I made for Gina K Designs.  After purchasing you just download the teplate and print out on any paper or cardstock you choose to make your pop up card.  Hope this helps, thanks for your sweet comment!

Dani, do you have a Cuttlebug? And what stamp sets did you get... I am definitely going to have to come over so we can "play"... and try these techniques.

I don't know where to start... There is so much to look at and see and do... I started at the beginning and watched the thumping technique this morning and the journal making one.

Is my hobby keeping Dave in Germany? Sigh... (Hopefully becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator, I can bring him home.)

My schedule is super flexible... when do you want to get together? I can come to your house...
