This is a really cool machine. I almost bought the Cuttle Bug before I saw this little machine. The truth is that I have a Cricut Expressions and felt there was no need for another machine for die-cuts. Also, this machine is inexpensive.
The Texture Boutique Embosser only embosses, no cutting AND you can use the cuttle bug folders. The cuttle bug folders can't be any wider than 4". I don't emboss huge objects, so this is a perfect little embossing machine for me and it's soooooooooooo cute.
