Hello Readers! I had another post in mind today but I am so lost in my search for a die cutting machine that I thought I would put it out there for your considerations, in hope that some of you are accomplished mixed media artists and or scrapbookers.
I was able to borrow a cricut expression for a month or two and it was great fun but now I know electronic cutting is completely overkill when it comes to what gets done over here. In short all I want to cut is gift tags, round tags, little flags, scalloped circles and ovals, you get the idea.
I have so far only found these 4 options:
Sizix big shot, Sixxiz big kick, Fiskar Fuse and Cuttlebug from Provo Craft.
They are all fairly cheap expect the Fiskar who is ridiculously pricey but apparently can letterpress (which would be fantastic on tags...). As far as I can tell the Big Shot is a versatile option but not very durable (I plan on using this with Finn), but the look is so kindergarten that I cringe at the idea of looking at it everyday in all its pinkness. That is the best design they could come up with? really! That way the Cuttlebug is a little less horrible. The Fiskar's design is perfectly neutral of course but also cost $199 on sale so maybe not!
Clearly I need help, please!
