Default Sizzix Big Shot ?

I am seriously considering buying the sizzix big shot through a group buy and was wondering what you ladies thought of it. I'm nervouse about spending more money because I have been spending so much lately especially on here but at 40% off its really tempting to be able to make felt flowers and I have no self control with deals What else do you ladies do with yours besides flowers? Is it a good investment? Just looking for some opinions.... TIA ladies

I bought mine a few weeks ago through a buy that Tanae was running. I love mine!!! I've only used it a few times, but I only have 2 dies. The more dies I get the more I will be using it! It is awesome! I've also found that you can flatten bottlecaps with it too!!!

I am also considering breaking down & buying the electric Big Shot. I have a cuttlebug but i'm thinking of giving that to my mom just to justify me needing it . I want to get it to make the felt flowers, but would like to know how well the other die cuts look when cut from felt & other materials? And are these die cuts small enough to use as center pieces for bows? If anyone has pics could you please... show your felt center pieces made for bows?

I saw a couple video's with people using the machines on youtube... those may be easier to follow. just type in sizzix in the search and tons come up.

The electric Big Shot is a MUST if you are gonna do a ton of felt cutting!!!

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!!

so now I'm thing about the big shot express after reading mbeer's post, but I'm confused I've been on the site forever and cant figure out what all the accessories do. Do I just need the machine and the die's i want or do I need all the pads and stuff too? Confused

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.
