I received my Fiskar Fuse today. I cut one thing at work and then put it up until I got home. I had a burning question I just had to find the answer for. I had to know if my Sizzix dies would fit or would I need the adapters. Well, I cut the Tim Holtz Tick Tock with my usual plates I have for my Big Shot. It worked. The fit actually seemed a little looser than when I run it through the Big Shot, but the cut was perfect. This is wonderful for me. I haven't tried any Spellbinders or Sizzlets yet. So, back to the craft room for me.

Well, I was flipping channels and I saw the new Fiskars Fuse on HSN. I have been wanting a larger (12 inch) die cutter. I have been thinking maybe the Sizzix Pro one, but was not able to commit to it. I love my Big Shot, but I really want to cut the bigger dies. Since my birthday is only 2 months away, I told my hubby I wanted the Fuse. Woo Hoo! I now have one on order. I can't wait to get it in. I like the way the letterpress and embossing look. I usually use my embossing folders to do something similar to that. I am wondering about the adapter kit. I didn't order that yet. I am hoping to be able to use a coupon on that when it hits the stores. HSN had a lot of stuff to go with the Fuse in the launch, so I will make due with that if the adapters are needed for the dies I already have until I can buy it.
I am a die addict. I have so many. I catch them on sale at different places or I use a coupon when out shopping. I love how easy it is to cut with them when you need to many of the same image in the same size. Sizzix.com has the greatest outlet area. Every time I get the money to burn (not very often), I go and order enough to get free shipping. Usually they have new stuff at great discounts by the time I get enough money saved to do a big order. I do have a bunch (embarrassing amount really) of Spellbinder dies. I just wish they would cut thicker things. I love die cutting my own chipboard elements and frames. I also have some Quickcut dies too. That collection hasn't been growing for very long.
