Am I alone in this but I have had my cuttlebug for about four years and have never used it to cut dies only emboss so the first time I used my new mft dies they left marks in the plates and I was horrified lol. So I could just buy new plates but I decided to look for a solution, my cuttlebug lives on a shelf and has to be lifted down to be used hence the reason I don't emboss much and I have been using the dies a lot so knew the shelf wasn't ideal. After some head scratching as there is little room on my desk I spotted the cuttlekid machine I bought for my friend's little girl a few years ago, I tried the dies and they work perfectly, no more messing around trying to find the right plate combo, two plates and away to go, the dies fit the plates perfectly and they are much cheaper to replace than the cuttlebug plates. When I bought the cuttlekid I paid $9.99 in Florida and it traveled all the way home with me to discover that my friend had bought one already so it had been sitting in my cupboard ever since but no more, it fits on my desk and works perfectly.
