Big Shot or Cuttle Bug?

I’ve been looking round and still deciding if i should get a big shot or a cuttle bug? These 2 machines are the most popular I’ve seen most crafters used. Well, it’s been close over a year since I’ve started crafting and have taken this purchase into deep consideration. I know these machines are not cheap, all over a hundred dollars, that’s why I’ve been taking so long to come to a decision. I also noticed that the metal dies aren’t that cheap as well. It looks like a $300 invest for me ūüėÄ Honestly, with that money, I could buy more stamps, copic markers and other craft stuff. Thus, I’m looking through reviews and¬†comparison to help me facilitate my choice.

At the moment, I’m still in¬†favor with the cuttle bug, as it is compact and sturdy. I don’t see myself needing an xtra large die plate in the¬†future and I feel that it’s the only reason why people get the Big shot for. I normally work on cards, ¬†gift wrapping and occasionally scrap/album booking, thus I don’t see a need to emboss or cut objectives bigger than the size CB is providing.

Feel free to drop your opinions on which and why, I would love to hear your views as well (:

ps. I hope to get a decision and purchase my very first die cut machine!!

Oh Christmas Light~

The spirit of christmas is getting stronger day by day!!!! And i finally got time to work on my christmas cards!! This bulk is inspired by 2 challenges:

Combining both challenges, here’s what i created!

The circle pattern paper and owl is like a christmas ornament. To make it look for like an ornament, I added twine, tied into a bow to make it look like it’s hanging off the paper! The background is a¬†subtle wood grain pattern, stamping on in white ink.

Was busy over the weekends mass making the cards. Each card is different! No one owl is wearing the same scarf and the bauble comes in different pattern. Or course, the sentiments vary as well.

I’ll be working on my next mass set soon! Stay tune…

Thanks for dropping by,
