This machine is very easy to use. It came with an A plate, two B plates, and an embossing folder. I'm very happy with this purchase and will definitely be buying more Cuttlebug embossing folders and die cuts.

I've been using my Cuttlebug for a few weeks now and absolutely love it! I read the recommendation of others and bought an extra pair of cutting plates (B plates) and added a C plate to it for using with dies from other machines. So far everything works beautifully and the handle turns easily for embossing and die cutting (I was worried it wouldn't.) I've gotten crisp, clean images using the embossing folders I've purchased, and have had clean cuts with the die-cutting plates I've used. The die cutting does leave a cut-in image on your B-plates, but I just switch them around and flip them over to keep it all even. So far the marks left on my B-plates haven't been an issue for me.

I researched the different machines like this one and decided on the Cuttlebug for ease of use, compatibility with dies from other machines, its embossing AND die-cutting capability and because the suction plate on the bottom holds well and is easily activated by pulling down the front and back feeder-trays. (I watched videos of all machines, and one other had a small lever to activate suction and it looked really difficult to turn.)

I also bought the All-In-One folder for my Cuttlebug but I'm not completely sold on that part. It puts wrinkles in my paper/cardstock at the outside corners of the embossing plates used with it. It still works, it's just not as nice looking as regular plates/dies used with the Cuttlebug.

Recently my "old" cuttlebug decided to pop apart while I was feeding through my next project, and it just bit the dust - there was no way I could get it to work properly after that. Now Version 2 has hit the market, so of course I ordered that one. Provo Craft has seen fit to NOT include Plate C in the basic kit - so you have to purchase that Plate before you can use your machine for the first time. What is up with that? They do include an embossing plate, though - one I could have done without. This version is basically like the first one, except the turning handle can be "stowed away" to keep it from sticking out, but that brings up an issue of the handle not turning as smoothly as the first version. The front and back fold down to make your feeding path, but those fold down pieces are not as long as those on Version 1, and my A & B Plates are always falling off while I am trying to make my next *sandwich* to feed through. So...I'll use this one for awhile, because I have to have a die-cutting machine, but I think I will start saving up for Tim's Vagabond...

I was looking at spending a lot on a die cutting machine. Then my mother bought this one and I fell in love. I bought it and I use it almost daily. You can use virtually any die with this machine (Sizzix, Spellbinders, etc) which is why I liked this compared to other machines. I think this is a must in scrapbooking/cardmaking.

Cuttlebug is a nice die-cut machine. It's compact and you can use dies from other companies on this machine. It is also easy to store. One thing that is missing is that the C plate is not included in the box, you need to buy it separately.

I have a Cricut, so bought this portable little machine for embossing only. LOVE it! It is quick and easy to set up and use & best thing is- it's manual requiring no power outlet. It's light and safe to teach a child to use. Also when folded up takes up a small footprint of space on the storage shelf (which is a BIG plus for me & a large part of my choice of this particular brand and machine).

I found it works best with the Cuttlebug embossing folders. The embossing plates are good, just not as strong an image as the folders. However- the advantage you have with the plates is you can place them on the paper in a particular arrangement- where the folder does not have that flexibility. I just wish the descriptions on the plates told you that you must have the special folder (called the "Cuttlebug All-In-One 6"x9" Folder") in order to use them. Having never seen a Cuttlebug before- this was not clear. The videos I viewed showed the 1-piece folders only. The plates shown here in Amazon and on the Provocraft website did NOT specify- like you were supposed to just 'know' this key piece of information and what it would be called. I figured it out of course, but had to wait another week plus to get the All-In-One folder in order to try out the plates I had purchased.

Overall- an easy to use, fun machine that is producing some awesome results for me. I'm very glad I bought it.

I purchased the cuttlebug as a Mother's Day gift for my 88 yr old mother, who has just taken up card-making and scrapbooking in the last few years. Before my Dad's death, he had bought her a Cricut Expression, which she just hasn't been able to get the hang of using, without someone to guide her through the process. I love my own cuttlebug so much, and it's so easy to use, that I figured this is something she would be able to handle without assistance. When she opened this gift, she was thrilled! She has already made several cards using the embossing folders and dies my sister and I bought her to go with it.
This is a quality product and a must have product for anyone who loves card-making, papercrafting, and/or scrapbooking. It's a good starter machine that you'll continue to use long after you've advanced to electronic machines, as it's embossing powers go far beyond what any electronic machine is able to do. The embossing folders are inexpensive and this machine will take any brand of die or embossing folder. I have two electronic cutters, but still turn to my little cuttlebug on a regular basis to give my die cuts that special touch of embossed elegance! I love my cuttlebug!

Love my cuttlebug! I bought it for embossing since I already own a Cricut machine. It is perfect for embossing and is compact for storage.

I have been making tons of things with my new Cuttlebug! It is easy and fun to use. It's also very easy to get "caught up" in the purchasing of additional accessories, which can get expensive. You do need to have the adapter mat C if you are going to use other brands of embossing or cutting tools. This is NOT included.
