Post by supergran on Thu 25 Jun 2009 - 17:03

Has anyone got one of these yet, I have looked at a video of it in use and as Readicut are selling it for 24.99 with 17 stencils I am thinking of getting one, advice please.

They are also doing a accessory tote and get the tote carrier free for 19.99, their sale is on

I had one as part of a prize and sold it on ebay as I already had a cuttlebug, it's small so will only fit that width templates/dies, so you're limited to the x cut and some of the smaller sissix and cuttlebug dies, and cuttlebug alphabets, but it is a good price and if space is an issue then it's good for you.

Its not the space its the price as the other ones are far to expensive.

Not sure if it will help or put you off...but in our local big craft shop...they reduced and reduced the dies, it really didn't take off in the same way as other die cutting machines.

If you see anything you want cutting or some embossed pieces of card, just let me know.

Perhaps we should set up a thread for people to post links to dies they have and we could have a kind of database so that if we fancy a few cuts, we can request some and offer either some paper/card in return.


Shall we do that Lorraine?

I've only used the cuttlebug and sidekick, the sizzix sidekick is very similar to the xcut and you can use sizzlit dies in the xcut, there are loads to buy and it does look good,
but I mentioned the cuttlebug as there are new dies coming out all the time, the embossing folders are spectacular and priced around 3.99.
And the size of the dies are very varied for the cuttlebug whereas the xcut and sizzlits are smaller, although still very useful.

www.thecraftsuperstore.co.uk have a cuttlebug on sale for 54.99 and free postage, 20 extra is a lot I know but I just thought I'd point it to you in case you fancy it.

That's a very good idea, Goaty but rather than list everthing we've got, would be better, I think, if it was more of a die cut request thread and then we could do stuff others haven't got and share stuff. Mr Green

Billie, if you can stretch to it, hun I would seriously consider that Cuttlebug, hun. You have so much choice of stuff you can do and use in it. Also, with Ellison having their weekly specials, you can get sizzix dies for a song to build up a collection. The bug folders themselves are a good price and you could maybe buy one or two a month.

http://www.craftathome.co.uk/cuttlebug-machine-p-3793.html?osCsid=c7d0bfc1d4e6779c675617e5e8510114 have one for 49.99 and only 2.90 postage.

Have to agree that the cuttlebug would be more value for your money Billie - if you can stretch to the bit extra. Much more versatile.

Thank Lorraine and Di am seriously considering that, I think its the cost of the dies that are so dear that worry me, as I do tend to just buy and buy, oh can you tell me with the dies that have a lot of things on it how do you get just one thing cut or embossed.

I cut a bit of card to fit over the bit I want cutting and then run it through the bug.

or go for the sizzix big shot. the machine alone i think is the same price as the cuttlebug. the big shot can use the bigz xl dies (so i've been told).

That readicut offer is a good one, I just had a look at it, came in yesterdays post, you get an alphabet with it, which is always useful.
I have a cuttlebug and would have trouble going smaller (x cut) there are so many nice embossing folders which is great when you want a really quick card.
Oyster often do good offers on them and they throw in one of their rubber embossing sheets which is useful for other brand dies.

MY Mum has the xcut and I've got a sidekick. You can intermix the dies but have to remember which plates to use, although we've had difficulty with some of them.
