My favourite 10 Sizzix Bigz dies

A few months ago I was asked in Facebook by a crafty friends which were my favourite Bigz dies. As you may know, as part of the European design team I have been blessed with many dies to use in my projects. Also, I have designed a few collections though mostly they have been Thinlits and Framelits dies.

Bigz dies are by far my favourite technology in terms of quality of cutting, though the space they take and the fact that you cant see through them, its off putting for some. But, if you really love die cutting then Bigz dies are the most versatile of them all.

Making a list of my top ten seemed difficult first. But I managed to do one, and there are a lot of Tim Holtz dies!

I know I am biased because I designed it, but I found this is the Bigz die that I use the most not only in my crafting but for workshops and everything else. The large heart is the shape that I use the most, I just find it the right size for many different projects.


Now, Alphabets. To me if you find an alphabet you lie the look of it you should invest on it. Nothing more useful. Trust me. And both Blocktalk are gorgeous fonts and perfect sizes for so many different things. Invest in both if you like die cutting!

I actually prefer lowercase than upper, but I find myself using both equally. I wouldn't be without either of them.


This large tag is fab for so many different things. Big enough for a card blank and mini albums as well as plain old tags.

I think I love all the Frameworks dies, but these two are the ones that I like the most. Though I have used Courtyard probably more.


Honeycomb pattern, whats not to love?


Delicate leaves, perfect for so much!

The following I love, but  they have been discontinued, so it may be difficult to find.


This one I love. Again, you can do so much, from mini albums, to cards to boxes... 


Instead of the Tattered Florals, I actually prefer the Tattered Poinsettia. With its matching embossing folder, I find it its one of the best poinsettias dies out there and very easy to create amazing realistic flowers.

I have many more dies that I love, but these are the ones I have use over and over out of love.

What are yours?
