Ah, a post about one of my favourite crafty subjects – I love my diecutting machines. I have/have had various machines and each have their different advantages.
I started off with a Sizzix Sidekick – this is the smallest of the Sizzix machines which uses the thin cuts dies. I only stuck with this a short time as I soon realised that I was too restricted with what I could do. The bigger cutting dies were tempting me and I wanted to try out some of the embossing techniques.
So literally a few days later was a visit to Hobbycraft where I purchased a Sizzix Big Shot and I can honestly say that I’ve never looked back. The Big Shot is so versatile, you can use it with the various brands of cutting dies, embossing folders, cut&emboss dies and you have a much larger surface to work with.
