Do you have a die cutting system/machine? If so, which one(s)? Do you like it? Hate it? Why? flower

Right now, I have a Sizzix (the old red one), Cuttlebug & Cricut Expression.

The Sizzix I like, but I am at the point that I just don't use it anymore, so I'm going to be trying to sell it, and most of my dies. I will keep the embossing folders though... they work in my Cuttlebug!

The Cuttlebug I also like and will hold on to for embossing. I love the look and so far the Cricut can't do it! Smile

The Cricut Expression.... LOVE MY BUG!! I use it ALL the time! I haven't bought letters in such a long time! I have the software to go with it, which make it even better! And, on my wish list, is the new Gypsy!! Smile

I have a small cricut. I use it mainly for titles. It has saved me bunch of money on alphas. I wish I had a c artridge for f lourishes.

I only have the old red Sizzix and have just begun to use it again with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. Very Happy

I have to say that the red sizzix is still up there with the cricut cause it's just great. My friend still has hers and we use it.
I have the expression and I love it cause I have the Gypsy and love that too...together they rock!

I have to say, I don't own any die cutting machines. I know that is horriable.

I have the cricut expression and cuttlebug. Use the cuttlebug for embossing and expression for cutting. Although...I cannot live without design studio. I am not sold on the gypsy though....seems way to expensive for what it does.

I have the old red Sizzix, and a Cuttlebug. I keep debating about the Cricut, but think that I am finally going to give in and get one soon.

I have the smaller size Cricut, but I don't use it that much.

I have a cricut which unfortunately I don't use very often. Also have a cuttlebug which I love for embossing.

I had a cricut and sold it on ebay - just didn't have space for it and trying to keep it near an outlet was an issue.

now I have the hand crank big shot and love it!!

I don't have one at all. I just can't decide which one I would actually use and with three kids I need to justify the expense. Besides... I love to make my own.

i personally love the QK Revolution! (and lately the MM Slice because it's little & portable too)
there are so many on the market, it's crazy to choose....however, i did test drive the MM Slice & i must sayyyyy...it's quite something too!! it's one of those tools that i demo-ed at a scrap event & i literally just played with it the night before & the next day i was rolling at demo! quick & easy to use!
you can check out more about it on my blog - ScrapNspire
