The Big Shot

I am thinking about taking the plunge and ordering the Big Shot. . . I have the old red lever sizzix which is the reason I haven’t already ordered the Big Shot. I really like the SU Exclusive Bigz dies but they don’t fit into the red sizzix so I have to get the new one if I want to use them. I have been reading stuff about the Big Shot and came across the list below. It contains all the different things that the Big Shot can cut through! My what a list!

  1. I’m one of the hold-outs on the BS, too. But I just got a big order that will give me enough to order one for myself. I’m excited to see what you will do with it.

  2. I would like to splurge for the Big Shot too. It certainly is a quality product. Problem is, I already have the Cuttlebug, Revolution and a Quikutz. Now how can I get around that, lol!
