I have owned both sets and I prefer the BBM to NBNG. I'll be honest with you~you can make the templates yourself for the NBNG system with scrapbook chipboard. I made some based on instructions from a tutorial I bought for something different, then ordered NBNG and realized I had pretty much the exact same thing. To me, NBNG still relies on you being able to straighten the loops out and that is something that I just couldn't get right. I don't have to monkey with my loops with BBM.
However, I find there to be a learning curve on both products.
