Now I own a Quickutz handtool and have been considering the Revolution. But at Laine's they told me that the Cuttlebug (by Provo Craft) can use Quickutz dies and that the embossing effect of the Cuttlebug is fabulous. After a quick demo, I was sold! Part of what convinced me was also the price of the Cuttlebug's embossing templates....they only cost $14.90 cos its made from plastic. Talk about being affordable. So bye bye Revolution, hello Cuttlebug. Now I can buy the 4x4 Quickutz dies without having to buy the Revolution. Only drawback is that the Quickutz 4x4 embossing plates cannot be used on the Cuttlebug.
The Cuttlebug is also much cheaper than the Revolution. It retails at Laine's for $199.90 but I got a 42% discount on it (all those who have been reading Laine's blog will know bout this coupon book promotion currently happening there).
I'm a happy scrapper!
