So, I have been putting off getting a die cutter for years. Of all the ones out there, the Big Shot was the one which always appealed: it is a very attractive design, takes almost all dies (from the looks of things), has good reviews and seems very well-made. I've finally saved up and thought I would treat myself - especially now they have it in my favourite colours!

First use was TERRIFYING.
You think you're going to break it, but trust in the instructions - and yourself.
The plates can (and will) crack and bow. I found out a little late that you ought to mark one plate out for cutting on one side, too: the dies DO cut into the plate and make significant marks. I also found that, when everything is new, the dies may get a little stuck into the cutting plate, but they just need freeing out - I used a palette knife.
(Once marked, make sure you use the cutting side for all cutting and the other side for any embossing - otherwise the cut marks come out in your work.)
Reading others' reviews, the plates seem to last 5 years but I am ordering a spare set today, because I am a scaredy cat! Also, some people have a method of heating the plates to reduce the bowing, but I don't know that that's for me.

The supplied dies are very useful and cute. It was one of the reasons I went for the starter kit. The old starter kit (the black and pink one) had dies in that I couldn't see myself using, which put me off. I felt that paying a little extra for a set which included dies that were definitely going to work for me was a better economy. I do feel this set is extremely good value, looking at the individual prices of everything in the kit.

I bought as really wanted to use for fabric. It doesn't disappoint as used with a couple of fairly intricate dies and they came out well. It helps if you run backwards and forwards to ensure a clean cut with fabric. I did use the embossing sheets to produce backgrounds for Christmas cards. I can see I will use this for patchwork templates. There are loads of dies you can buy for the machine. Some of the dies are very expensive so you need to think how much you will use the die after the initial reason you bought it but the dies I want are for more general use. I am sure if you buy for card making it is even more versatile than why I bought it. It's a great fun machine. Amazon offered the unit at the best price as on other sites it can get very expensive. It was packaged well.

I bought this as a replacement for the black one I already have so knew already the quality of the product. My old one is fine, I'm just passing it over to my husband to see if he can use it for lino-printing without me worrying over how clean it is.

I love the new colour scheme.

The only thing to watch is that you don't use a thick card with the Sizzlits butterfly die.

I bought the starter kit rather than just the machine because I thought I was likely to use the dies that came with it.

I have had a few of the big shots as i get new models when they come out but also i have changed and tried other machines but i always come back to he big shot, its the machine that handles all the dies on the market,from thin to thick, i can only not use the ones meant for big machines,i did once buy the sizzix big shot pro but found it too big and heavy.
The big shot is lightweight, this model is even lighter but still stable, its cuts better too,i don`t know why but my old pink and black big shot had problems sometimes not cutting the whole shape out, i love all the dies that came with it,this really helps people who are starting new too,it also cuts fabric and other materials which other machines can`t, this machine feel well built and like it will last, some machines feel the handles are too flimsy and will break,this machine is built to last and handle the job,if you are thinking of getting a die cutting machine then i would strongly recommend the big shot, i have used many machines over the years,some i have not but don`t fancy too... this is everything you need for your hobby, why go elsewhere, i found after researching that Amazon had the best price too,so i got a great bargain too.

Very thrilled when it arrived, promptly too. Does what it said it would and the multi platform is great. I am able to cut out felt into shapes which I am thrilled with as it adds different dimension to my cards and all in all my purchase has added more flexibility to my card making.

Nice bit of kit, I'm using for cutting fabric, If you are cutting light weight fabric you need interfacing! But cutting pads won't last long :( But great for cutting paper shapes out children to stick on cards! :)
