I've been lusting after a decent die-cutting machine for ages. I've had an X-Cut impress for a while, but the plates are so tiny and it doesn't feel very strong when I'm tring to cut things. It's also very limited on the sizes of the individual dies as well as the general availability.
After a bit of research, I decided I wanted to buy a Cuttlebug but the craft shop in my local town were selling them at £70 and it was way beyond my budget! I checked my online banking today and have no bills coming out, so I bit the bullet and bought it! I was in the shop with my kids. DS was asleep, but DD was intrigued by everything. The lady in the shop let her choose a disney die and embossing folder and threw them in for half price and the lady also found one of the dies from the kids range and let DD choose one of those too and threw it in for free! And because DD was so good, she let her have a few chocolate coins AND a pack of small xmas card toppers too!
I know I could have gotten a Cuttlebug online for about £20 cheaper, but I wouldn't have made DD happy with it!
And, of course, I've been playing with it since I got home and I can honestly say, I don't know how I've lived without it! I love it sooo much and it's so easy to use! I'd highly recommend[sp?] it to anyone who's considering it!
