I have both. I use the Cuddlebug for embossing folders and Nestabilities. The Big Shot is used for the bigger dies. I love both machines for their individual uses. My first purchase was the Big Shot which is great for all the above. If you're only going to have one machine and use the larger dies then the Big Shot gets my vote. Hope this helps.

Default Movers and Shapers

Do I need anything special for the Movers and Shapers die? I keep seeing the Tim Holtz tray being mentioned but im not sure what that is and if I need it for the Movers and Shapers die...

Nope, you don't need the tray to use the die. The tray is handy if you want to use some of the shapes without the die; however, there are other work-arounds for that as well.

Does anyone use the Big Shot Pro? My dh bought one for me for our anniversary because I just couldn't stop obsessing, but now I'm having second and third thoughts about this. Please help!

Wow- what an awesome gift! Actually I have been hoping for one for Christmas and have been trying to find the best place to suggest for my husband to buy it. I can't imagine having second thoughts, as I LOVE my Big Shot. And when I see some of those bigger "Pro" dies I don't know how it would't be wonderful!
Do you have any of the bigger dies?
Also, I have to ask: what exactly seems to be your reservation about it? Have you used it and are you having trouble with it?

I have both the big shot and the big shot pro. I mainly bought the BSP for cutting fabric for quilting but it'll come in handy for papercrafts too. When I do Christmas cards (need to get started on those) I can put several dies at a time in the BSP. Even though I don't use it as much as I should right now, I don't regret buying it.

btw when I bought mine, Overstock.com had the best price. I got the Westminster edition which comes with all the extra long supplies. I may get a regular size set of cutting pads for smaller dies.

I LOVE my Big Shot Pro!!!! Getting the "sandwiches" right was a bit tricky, especially because the original sandwich maker which the tabs is no longer available and most of the lists I found on the internet had that in it. Are you having a difficult time figuring out how to layer to get the right combination for your dies, Spellbinders etc?

Also, I shopped on Ebay to find most of my large dies. I was able to find most of the ones I wanted for $10-$20 less including shipping.

I have been wondering what the Westminster was. I thought it came with the letterpress supplies. Can you tell me what you mean by longer? I have a Wizard and want a Big Shot Pro but I am having a hard time justifying the cost.

Thanks for all the replies. I don't have any of the larger dies, but hope to add a few soon! My worries are about the sandwich for the Spellbinders dies. It's my understanding that I still need to buy some sort of adaptor, but I can't figure out what it's called or where I can buy one.

The regular blue big shot pro has 12 x 12 cutting pads and tray. The purple Westminster edition has 12 x 24 cutting pads and tray. I believe that's the only difference. You can buy the blue machine and the longer pads separately but I think the pads/tray alone (there might be another piece in there-an adapter of some kind) are about $100.

Thanks so much Gale, I had no idea they came that large! The manufacturer really does not offer a lot of product information on their site, I have tried to research it. So I would still need to buy more adapters to use my Nesties? Can they be used on the 12 x 24 plates?

Wow I just received my Big Shot Pro! It's so nice, well made and heavy. Now I need to find a great site for buying Accu Cut dies! Can anyone suggest where I can buy these dies?! Thanks.

Hi, everybody! I just wanna ask - what's the white foam thingy that you get together with sizzix embossing folders? I got my wedding set of folders, and there's the white thing. I can't seem to find the use for it. Thanks much!

I just added a Sizzix Big Shot to the top of my Christmas List (which I"m handing to my hubby tonight).

I'm fairly new at 'serious' card making, so I've been wanting to take things slow to make sure its something I want to keep doing. I was looking at the Cuttlebug. It seemed slightly less intimidating than the Big Shot. $60, what a deal right, until I found the Big Shot for $55 on Overtstock.com!

What the heck...so I added it and an embossing set as well. Can't wait!

I'm so glad I found this Q&A because I have NO Idea what I'm getting myself into. I will have to explain to my Slice die-cutter (By Making Memories) that I think we should be 'just friends'. LOL

I can't see where else to ask this question so hopefully someone might know the answer, I have a marrianne poinsettia frame die cut, when I cut it and emboss it the bottom poinsettia leaves only partially cut so it looks a bit odd, not sure if this is how it should be or I'm doing something wrong, does anyone else have one? on the back the raised cutting part doesn't go all around the leaves so maybe it's not meant to cut them all out, any ideas?

I think you're right the raised edges is what does the cutting, also heard to use alumin foil to sharpen your punches maybe it will work on dies. Also try youtube they have videos on just about anything

Hi Everyone,

I have a bigshot but mostly use it for embossing so I only have the regular tabbed plate (sorry I don't know what it is really called).

If I buy a die like this:

Sizzix Bigz XL BIGkick/Big Shot Die-House Album*: die cut machines & accessories*: scrapbooking*: Shop | Joann.com

Do you think it will cut through lightweight chipboard?

Thanks,
Katie

Hi Katie

You will not use the multi-tabbed platform you use with your embossing folders because the die is thick. You will need the other items I have listed below to cut with this die. Each die measures 13-3/4x6x5/8 inch. This die is designed for use only with the BIGkick and Big Shot machines and requires the use of an Extended Cutting Pad.
Yes you can cut lightweight chipboard as this is a steel-ruled die. These types of dies actually cut a lot of many mediums.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Here is a list of all the materials that you can cut w/Big Shot Dies. I don't remember who created it, but it's great.

You can get chipboard many places just do a search online or look for pieces of it under the scrapbook paper at Michaels or other places like that a lot of the time those places will just give it to you.
Hope this helps

Mat board is the material framers use inside of frames, under the glass, to make the border around the photograph. You can probably purchase it at any store that does framing, although if you need archival quality it will probably be expensive.

If you want cheap mat board, go to the department where they do custom framing (at Michaels or Hobby Lobby) and ask if you can buy their scraps. I bought a huge box of scraps for $10 at least 10 yrs ago and I still have most of it. The scraps are mostly the rectangular cutouts from the middle of mats and the ones I got are all about at least 10 x 14 or so.

I just got my large doily Sizzlet die from SU... it's not cutting! The outside edge cuts about 3/4 the way around and the inside doesn't cut through the cardstock. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've tried adding shims and the Big Shot cut off some of the edge foam because it was too thick, and then I took out some and tried all kinds of combinations of shims and it still won't cut all the doily out. Maybe it's defective... does anyone else have a problem with this die? (BTW, I've been using the Big Shot for a VERY long time and am not a novice at this.) Let me know if anyone is having the same difficulty with this die. Thanks!

I bought mine at Oh My Crafts a week after black friday, They have it on sale again now 269.99, there is a 20% off coupon good through 1/11/12 (although they have been extending it a lot) 20% off brings it to 215.99. Current Coupon Codes To celebrate the new year use coupon code 2012 for 20% off any order (EXTENDED thru 1/11/12) Also, I found the 3 extra mats needed for the Nesties to work in the BSP at Sears for 26.00, plus 6$ shipping, better than the 39.00 elsewhere. Good luck.

I haven't shopped them but the 20 % is good off anything in the store. I saw they had the pink and black one for 59.99, you may be able to do better at JoAnns or Michaels if you can use a 40 off coupon though.

This is what you need to be able to cut Spellbinders Nestabilities, etc. It is out of stock at Sizzix right now, but I bought one this Fall to use in my Vintaj Big Kick. My Vintaj didn't come with the "tabbed" platform. It has all separate elements to make your sandwich recipes.

The big kick is like the big shot. Thanks
If you have the multipurpose platform with the tab 1 and tab two sheets the sandwich from the bottom up is:

Tab 2 MPP
cutting pad (the clear acrylic plate)
paper - or other substance to be cut (I've had good luck with fun foam and felt)
Framelit with cutting side down against the paper
Cutting pad

There is a video on the Sizzix.com site that shows how the framelits work also a video on the Stampin Up YouTube channel showing it working with the Big Shot.

If you have the single layer platform for the Big Kick I'm not sure what you would add to make that work.
