As you might have noticed, I am now a proud owner of a Cuttlebug... and it's standard colour even happens to be my favourite colour... GREEN!
So last night I had a bit of a trial run with the Bug. Did a bit of embossing and die cutting, with no real purpose in mind. It is pretty easy to operate. The one thing that did concern me was the fact that the die cuts, even with a thing piece of card for protection, left marks on the cutting plate. I have read this is quite common but are there other suggestions on how to avoid this, to prolong the life of the plates? Are there any other maintenience suggestions anyone might have?
Can anyone please tell me what other types of dies and embossing folders work with the Bug, as google responses can be a bit inconsistant, so it would be good to hear it from some experienced Bug users. I currently have 2 Sizzix Sizzlets dies, which came with the pack. I'm guessing this means they are compatible but have no idea about any other brands or types. Could you also tell me if any extra items are needed to make the different products work.
Finally, are there any other tools and gadgets that are useful when owning a Bug? Or any other pieces of advice you may be able to offer.
I look forward to some helpful responses and hope to have some new creations to show over the weekend :-)
