I absolutely love my Big Shot. I have the Express, so I have a button instead of a hand crank. LOVE it!!!! I have trouble with my arms and couldn't use it otherwise. I've used Cuttlebug embossing folders, but don't have any of their dies that cut. I do have Sizzix, Quickutz, MFT Die-Namics, Memory Box etc. When I got mine, it came with just the standard platform. That works great for the Sizzix Bigz and Originals dies, but you need the Solo Shim & the Solo Adapter, that way you can use all of the other dies from other companies, including the wafer thin dies. It shows on the Shim and the Adapter which types of dies you use with which.
Anyway, I absolutely love my Sizzix Big Shot Express and can't say enough good things about it! It makes life so much easier and has opened up a whole world of things I can do that I couldn't before.
