Please explain to me the difference between a Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Big Shot and Big Kick? Are all the dies interchangeable? What is the best one to start doing cards with? Thank you

Here is our Guide to Die-cutting, which has some great information to get you started.

The Sizzix Big Shot, Big Kick, and Vagabond are all fantastic machines. We use the Big Shot and the Vagabond a lot, and they are definitely favorites. The great thing about the Vagabond is that you can cut up to 7 sheets of cardstock or paper at one time when using the Bigz dies. This is so great for making multiple cards or projects. Check out the video for a "how to" on the Big Shot.

The Cuttlebug is also a great machine and allows you to die cut and emboss using all sorts of different products. You'll always want to make sure you check compatibility regardless of the machine you have, just to make sure everything will work together correctly.

Hope this helps!
