Default Big Shot Dies

What are your favorite dies? I only have the circle dies so far(it's the one with three different sized circles), and thinking I need to get a few more.

Thanks. Those look fun
So far I've only experimented with cotton fabrics. What kind do of fabrics do you like to use?

I love any of the flower dies, and I use my large scalloped circle the most. I like shiny lining fabrics, felt, and have even used velvet. With the standard type thick dies you can cut any fabrics, and several layers at a time too.

I have several of the different flowers. My fav is probably the Sizzix Originals Flower Layers. I also like the framelits bc you get so many sizes of the same shape and despite being so thin they will cut heavy duty stuff like foam and felt.

Your framelits will cut felt? I have heard they don't...would be great if they did, some are soo cute! I just bought the big kick and trying to figure out which dies work best!

WHAT?!?! Really?

I tried those nestibles, (not sizzix, I forget the brand) and they SUCK at cutting felt... barely cut one layer...

Are the framelits better than the Sizzlits at cutting felt? I got the sizzlits hello kitty one, and it can't cut felt at all.

Yes, framelits will cut felt! I use wool 65/35 and they do fine, no snags at all. Just use the tallest setting of the cutting board. Sizzlits will NOT cut felt. Too bad since there are so many cute sizzlits.

I haven't tried any non-sizzix dies so I dunno about other brands.

Btw, I've never tried to cut more than one layer of felt at a time. But you can lay out several framelits side by side to cut at once so you get several pieces out of each press.
