or do I need to get a larger cutting machine? I currently own the old Red Sizzix machine, the Cuttlebug, a Cricut, QK Hand tool, Epic, and Revolution machines. Darn it? Will nothing cut the bigger dies. I'm seeing so many new flower dies coming onto the market and want to start making/cutting my own but I hate to have to purchase a new machine on top of the cost of the new dies. TFYH

I would purge all the other cutters and get one that can handle it all.

Think of it like this. In the kitchen, you don't have a pasta maker, a bread dough maker, blender, and a food processor when all you use is a mixer. hehehe...that was from Alton Brown.

The Sizzix Bigz dies fit in the Cuttlebug. I've done it!

The BigZ and BigZ XL dies do work in the Cuttlebug, but you'll need the longer B plates for the BigZ XL dies.

However, the new Sizzix Scoreboard dies may not fit. Someone else with a Cuttlebug said they don't. Apparently, they are a tiny bit too wide to go through the Cuttlebug, but they will supposedly fit the Big Shot and Big Kick.

So before you buy, check to see what the dies are labeled as: BigZ or Scoreboard.

They should fit in the epic it is the same width as the big shot. You may need another cutting plate though.
