Big Shot & More

Hi All,

This page is still under construction but the idea is for you to be able to find downloads, links and articles that will help you use your Die Cutting machines more easily and more creatively.  While most of the links will refer primarily to the Big Shot I will also try to provide some materials/links for C’Bug users and other Sizzix machines and the occasional other machine as well. 

One reminder:  All suggestions, etc are to be used at your own risk and come with no guarantees.  Some in fact might void your warranties so if you are concerned about a particular item check with the author or better yet the company that makes your machine.   Also these are not presented in any particular order of importance or value.  Pretty much just as I come across them. 😀

You Tube search results for Video’s on Big Shot:

Two slightly different results.  The first using Stampin Up in the Search String and the Second using Sizzix.  Many duplicates though the differences are worth investigating.

  1. Thanks for having the info on the tree die. The hostess at my Sat. workshop said “No thanks” to getting one item from the mini for $10!!!!!
    I just ordered the tree (of course)
    I does look like a PAIN to make.

  2. I saw your note about shimmer paint on stampin discuss, but have to go back and check that to find it here. Reading about your racoon and 40 pine trees country, I can only imagine how beautiful your surroundings must be. A little envious…..Carol
