As many of you know I have been toying with making the big purchase! Any way yesterday I had the chance to use both a lot... This is my personal findings.... Sizzix: Pros: many dies to purchase able to buy at ACmoore/micheal's and use coupons easier on the wrist COns: Heavy not portable plastic board seems to be easily marred and needs to be replaced Quic Kutz: Pros Very portable wonderful fonts (I actually like them better than Sizzix) easy storage COns; Limited die cut size tiring on the wrist (at least for me) Hard to read which letter is which ( again could be me) So now that I have played with both I really think I am going with the quic kutz. Reason why; I do like the fonts but like both brands. But I looked at my style of scrapping. I really don't use die cuts. Maybe here or there but none that I would use over and over again. I also have many punches that I use only on occassions but feel they are well used HAHAHA so I don't think I would want to buy many die cuts but know with my personality I would! LOL! SO The savings pot now begins! Also I have to pick out which font I want!
