Is the cuttlebug being discontinued?

Cricut to
Cricut has announced that the Cuttlebug, its manual die-cutting machine, has been discontinued. Accessories such as dies and embossing boxes will also be discontinued.

Cricut is also discontinuing the cuttlebug.

Cricut is dedicated to creating amazing products that increase the creativity possibilities for all our members. We continue to develop new products and sometimes have to make difficult decisions about existing product lines we cannot support.

Is big shot being discontinued? Stampin' up has announced that they will discontinue the Sizzix Big Shot and are also replacing Sizzix as their die manufacturer. This move was likely to have been in the works for months.

What is the solution to this problem?

We have decided to discontinue Cuttlebug accessories and Cuttlebug products this year. While they are still available on, you can still find Cuttlebug products at your favorite craft retailers. We are grateful for your passion for our products, and your dedication to the Cricut brand.

Is it necessary to have a cuttlebug even if I already own a Cricut

Yes, the Cuttlebug embosses. This is something that the Explore line doesn't offer. It doesn't require any internet connection or computer, and it can even be plugged in. This makes it the perfect crafting tool.
