When you purchase your machine, it will come with the cutting plates you need. Especially if you purchase the Electric Big Shot, that comes with the long plates so you can use the longer dies. You will get your white base cutting pad and then 2 clear cutting plates.
Other than the machine you will just need some dies, I suggest the originals or the bigz, and you can use the nestabilities too. DO NOT use the sizzlits for cutting fabric or felt, they do not work so stay away from them.
