I know the Fuse embosses as well as a slew of other things that the Cameo does not do. I almost feel as if I'm comparing apples to oranges...and I may have just talked myself into thinking I need both

Haven't used the letter press plates like I thought I would, but for my dies and embossing folders, it does a fabulous job. I also own the Cameo. It never hurts to have more than one machine especially when they can do different things.

If you want a manual die cutter that can also use embossing folder, get the Sizzix Big Shot. It is compatible with many manufacturers dies. It and the sizzix and other dies are cheaper than the Fuse system and their dies. Everytime someone asks about a good manual cutter, the Sizzix is always recommended again and again. It is a workhorse.

I have been looking at this, its on my wishlist. One big difference that I like about it is that it can do 12x12 (and a bit larger). All other manual die cutters/embossers seem they can only do smaller sizes. I'll be using one for much more than just scrapbooking.

I like that my Fuse can fold up which is something the BSP doesn't do.
