Chances are, you’re aware that the Cricut Explore is the ultimate electronic cutting machine for DIY crafts and endeavors. But did you know that you can take your project to the next level with the Cuttlebug, our portable, versatile and oh-so-easy die cutting and embossing machine?

The Cuttlebug is one of the first machines we ever offered! Whether you want to make a quick card or add a finishing touch of depth and texture, you know the Cuttlebug will deliver breathtaking results. Many makers work with it on its own, and others use it as a companion piece to the Cricut Explore.

However you use it, we know that you’ll love the Cuttlebug!

Emboss and die cut with the Cuttlebug… perfect for away-from-home craft nights with friends.

The Cuttlebug uses Embossing Folders to add texture to paper (something the Cricut Explore can’t do!). Both sides of your paper can be texturized… it’s a treat for the senses.

Create “wow” projects using the Cuttlebug’s metal Dies to Cut and Emboss.

Die Cuts to die for!

Use the Cuttlebug buy itself, or with the Cricut Explore. You’ll be amazed how it elevates the look and feel of a piece.

  1. Oh How Beautiful and Awesome is your post for today. I am loving these new dies how they cut & emboss makes for the most outstanding and Beautiful look. Thanks for the share….I just ordered 3 sets and can’t wait to receive them…Love what you created. You did a super outstanding creative job!! YOU so ROCK!!

  2. I went shopping at two of the 3 BIG chain craft stores yesterday hoping to take advantage of their Fourth of July deep discount coupon on a new embossing folder. I was so disappointed when I saw a new relay had been done and there were no embossing folders. The one store had possibly 12 of their own brand but that was it. Unfortunately, it was too late, since it was a holiday, to run across town to the third store I knew would have your folders still. I tell you this only for background to what I’m about to say… I was afraid you were going to quit making this product! I’m so glad to see you’re expanding the product line. I love my Cricut ( I have 3 different models; have grown with the product) and my Cuttlebug is a must to go with it; it adds so much dimension to a project. Seriously, thank you so very much for continuing and expanding the Cuttlebug line!

  3. I have the Cricut Explore Air and the Cuttlebug and love them both. I don’t usually think of embossing items I’ve cut. Thank you for the reminder and inspiration!

  4. I want to make the folder to keep my embossing folders in. Someone said it can be gotten on .cutfile, but I can’t find it. Can you help? Thanks for your help.
