The Sizzix Big Shot works with the entire Sizzix product library, including the biggest and smallest dies and most exciting techniques.... Full Description & Details.
I love this product!! It is fun, so easy to use, and provides you with the die cuts you want, period. If you are a multi-crafter (you sew, knit, paint, scrap, whatever), you may not be looking to spend hundreds on an electronic machine. If you are concerned that you would not use the electronic machines enough to make it worth the investment (as I was), this is the machine for you!! It uses die cuts from all of the major manual platforms (I love the Cuttlebug embossing folders! Worked like a charm!), and the accessories are very reasonably priced. It is extremely stable--heavy enough to stay put on your table while using, but is not too heavy to take with you to crops. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone!
I researched die cut machines & pretty much had my mind made up to get one that needed to be hooked to PC. After much thought I realized that i did not want be on the PC while doing my scrapbooking, I would end up checking email ! So I started checking the machines that took all dies & decided on the BIG SHOT. I am so happy I did.
It is soooo easy to use. Basic directions & no cords!!! It went from box to layout in just a matter of minutes. By using the MULTIPURPOSE PLATFORM you can also cut thinner dies.
The roller is so easy... not hard to turn. The machine has enough weight that it does not wiggle when cutting, yet is light enough that it is very portable.
I highly reccommend this! Plus I love the colors :)
I was not a fan of roller machines but decided to try this one out. I love it! It is a great all around machine........I can use all the dies from my other sizzix machine plus the dies too big for my old machines. I love the texture plates and the Multipurpose platform is great for incorporating other dies like the flat ones. The other great thing about this machine is the weight. It is sooo light and the handle on top makes it easy to carry from room to room. I don't know why I did not try this out sooner!
Easy, effective and worth every penny! I was using it within minutes and couldn't be happier. I wouldn't consider myself a "serious" scrapper like many of you, so bear that it mind. I play at scrapbooking for an hour in the evening a couple nights a week and my designs are simple. An electric cutter was overkill for me, but this fits the bill perfectly. However, I do think it would work beautifully for a more serious scrapper; I felt it would grow with me if I become more advanced or more addicted.
I'll admit it. I got this for ONE reason - Texturz. That's it. All. Period.
Now I'm kicking myself for NOT grabbing one sooner. Y'know those Original Sizzix dies? The ones that will do CHIPBOARD, if you press hard enough?
Yeah. Roll. Smoosh. No effort. CUT!
AND, then there's the Texturz...I love love love them. Nice BIG embossing area. Great, crisp impressions. My new favorite thing!
