    My beloved Cuttlebug with the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System Design Set and some completed tags.

    One of the major complaints I hear from crafters is how expensive all the new die-cutting machines are – never mind the cost of the dies. When I first saw the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System I fell in love – not with the machine, but with the dies. I had just bought two Cricuts (a personal and an Imagine) plus a Cuttlebug, so a new machine – especially a $300 machine was out of the question. I kept thinking to myself why wouldn’t those Fiskars dies work on the Cuttlebug – and so I bought one.

    It has taken several months of playing around with the Cuttlebug and the Fiskars dies to get everything just so – in part because I am a busy person and do not really have time to sit down and focus all my energy on one task such as this. I try things – and if they don’t work out, I think about the things I could do differently the next time around. I keep working at things – slowly – until I figure them out – and thus that is what I did today with the Fiskars Fuse Creativity Design Sets and my Cuttlebug.

    Did you ever try using the Fiskars medium cutting plate and mat? It works perfect with my Epic Six and provides a much better letterpress look than using the Cuttlebug “C” plate.

    Is it possible to use this die in the Cuttlebug to cut cardstock? My granddaughter wants to make leaves for her wedding invitations. I’ve used Sizzix dies in the machine with no problem. Are these a different thickness or something? Please help? Judy

    Wow! I just tried this with a FUSE die and my Cuttlebug REALLY groaned! I know some of the “sandwiches” are very tight, but this one scared me. I truly thought I’d break the handle. I backed it out halfway through and my C plate was cut into VERY deep. Think I will just use my Fuse for their own dies.

    I’m glad to hear it is possible to use these dies in the cuttlebug…as that is all I have. I have a border die I’d like to use. You didn’t mention the sandwich that worked for you. Do you mind sharing?
