Default Big Shot Pro- Sacramento, CA area

Hello fellow stampers. My mother in law bought a template for the Big shot and I guess it is for the pro. She needs to cut out some dresses. Does anyone in the Sacramento, CA area have one that we could borrow?

If there are any LSS or schools nearby, they may have one of the large Accucut machines that will also cut the Big Shot Pro dies.

Thanks for the information. I will have to check out the local schools. What does LSS stand for. On the large accucut machine, would you need to use the plastic clear board like a regular sizzix machine?

LSS = local scrapbooking store

To use the BSP dies in an AccuCut, you'll need an adapter. BSP dies are thinner than the wood and steel dies normally used in the big machines.

Call ahead and be sure to mention two things:

1. The die you have is a Sizzix Big Shot Pro die that's plastic and steel and the same thickness as a Sizzix Originals/Bigz die. It's *thinner* than an AccuCut die (and also thinner than Ellison wood and steel dies).

2. The BSP die is 12" wide and does not fit through every AccuCut/Ellison machine. Be sure your die isn't too large for their machine.
