So what are some additional craft machines and tools that you just love?? I am looking at the Purple Cow and am debating that.

What are some other machines and tools out there to check out?

Regarding other die cut machines I am just wondering if you have a Cricut why would you want some of these other die cut machines like the Big Shot? One of the reasons I bought a Cricut was because I really wanted to do punches but the cost of punches and trying to store would be just a lot! So when I saw the Cricut I just fell in love and have been in love ever since!!BigGrin What is it about these other machines that you like in additional to the Cricut.

Cuttlebug-for embossing
Bind it All-for binding my mini books
Slice-for cutting some images I can't get on any Cricut carts, yet


Those are the machines/tools I go to as often as my Cricut.

love my new embosser. Not cuttlebug but does the same thing machine just a bit cheaper plus 50% coupon. Embossing makes cuts really pop. And it was because of this message board that I HAD to have one. I do have several cuttlebug folders to use with my embosser.

Definantly a must have for scrappers and so easy to use.LOL

Oh and my ATG for sure.
and my Design Studio - can't cut without it (literally)

DizzyMama,
you can get Ott bulbs for your regular lamps:check Micheals an Joann's.

I love my Big Kick..I use it for nesties and dies and sometimes my Cuttlebug folders
I have a texture boutique mainly for embossing folders.
I"m falling for my ATG..haven't had it long but REALLY liking it!

I never intended to purchase any punches. When I bought my Cricut I thought I'd never need to buy any.

It's become a matter of convenience to have some punches where I can just grab one and make a circle, square, etc. instead of having to open DS, find the cartridge, and cut it on my E.

Love my Cuttlebug and my Bind-it-All but they do things the E can't.

I'm a gadget freak. Love tech stuff and crafting tools!

Cricut E
Gypsy
Design Studio
the 2 "other" programs
3 Jukeboxes
KNK 13"
KNK Maxx 24"
Slice
Big Shot Pro
Big Kick
Side Kick
Cuttlebug
QK Revolution
QK Squeeze
Curvy Cutter for large circles (LOVE it!)
12x12 glass mat -- a necessity for using the ^CC^
DreamKuts
ATG
Scor-Pal
Xyrons up to/including the 9"
BIA
Cropadile Big Bite
Ott Lite (so awesome!)
Spellbinders Calibur and Grand dies on order (can't wait!)
a gazillion dies, embossing folders, punches

I do use my toys, though the 24" KNK sits a lot because it's hard to find material for it. I gave the CB and Side Kick to my kids and we craft together. I love Nesties. I try not to buy punches, but I'm a sucker for the Stampin' Up exclusives, especially if they have coordinating stamp sets.

My E that I love
Cuttlebug and many folders
xyron for making stickers
MS Scoreboard that I haven't used yet but I know I will
Cropadile that I haven't used yet
DS that I have had for a year and never used. I must be crazy!!LOL
