I have the Big Shot & Cuttlebug and on a whim decided to get the Electric Big Shot....I was tired of all the cranking....BEST THING I EVER DID!

I cut felt and polar fleece with the originals and Bigz dies. I like those dies the best because you can cut thru 4 layers of fleece! Felt you can cut about 5 layers. If you are using the Spellbinders dies you can only cut thru one layer of felt or fleece.

I just made some new Poinsettia flowers today and I have also included pics of my Gardenia flowers, Dahlia and poppy's....you won't be sorry for your purchase I promise!!
WOW your flowers are beautiful.... thanks for sharing. Yea...I'm leaning more and more towards getting the electric one now LOL. Can you use your Big Shot for other embellishments for bows other than felt & fleece?

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.

Eeek so the sizzlits will not work for cutting fabric or felt? Omg.. I have a ton.. on my "to get list" because I figured they were small enough to cut embellishments for bows . Ooo.. well gotta go back & redo my list. Thanks for this info.

how much is the electric big shot if you buy through the group buy on here? I can't find a thread for it.

How much are the dies for the poinsettas?
