Today was the day, the day I've been waiting for. Today I bought my Sizzix BigShot die cutting machine. I've been waiting to buy this for a while and received the money for Christmas so today we went to hobbycraft! Here is a bigshot machine if you haven't seen one.
Of corse as you all know me, I got back from my journey and started playing straight away. I tested all my dies first and I have to tell you Sizzix dies are very sharp and cut cleanly. They also produce a very wide range of shapes.
I also bought some dies from other makers which also work very well. I decided to buy more intricate shapes which I discovered in store (via a demonstration) that I would also need a "pokey tool". Now you may think I'm joking, however there is such a tool! It's in the Tattered Lace range for Hobbycraft and literally pokes the die cut piece out of die.
Now who would like to see my cards? Firstly I'll show you one I have been working on using handmade paper, ink and an embelishment (not via my bigshot).
I hope you like my mini review!
