The Big Shot

The other day I got a Big Shot and a load of Sizzix dies. I have been playing all day with them. There a no better dies than the really thick ones, the Bigz, originals or XL. The blades are so deep that can cut through really thick stuff.

So what do I think of the Big Shot? I love it! and so does Omar. We had a little die cutting session and he was almost as excited as I was.

One of things I did get was the texture plates. Some people told me that they were disappointed with they effect specially compared to the Cuttlebug embossing folders. So my expectations were not that great. But, oh Boy, was I surprised! The embossing effect is fantastic, some of the patterns come up as well as the folders while others are a little bit more subtle, but still nicely embossed.

The new borders, 12" long, from the Hello, Kitty, collection are great, there are some that are scalloped with dots and others that are just like the frills.

Hopefully, the light will be better tomorrow so I can take proper photos of the stuff I am making.
