New Toy: Review of the Sizzix Big Shot Machine

Having Ari has definitely  ignited my creativity and need for new "toys" to accomplish my long list of DIY projects. My older sister is super crafty and I figured I could follow in her footsteps. A few weekends ago I attended a friend's baby shower. Her mom always plans all of the parties and for good reason she is super creative and all of the parties come out adorable. I finally decided to ask what machine she used to make her banners and cupcake toppers and she told me she used the Sizzix Big Shot Cutting and Embossing Roller Style Scrapbooking Die-Cut Machine. Of course I needed the machine because Ari's birthday is right around the corner and I rather make things than pay someone a lot of money for it.

My Sizzix Big Shot Cutting and Embossing Roller Style Scrapbooking Die-Cut Machine just arrived and I could not wait to start working on Ari's birthday party DIY projects. This machine is of high quality. The Big Shot has clear, simple instructions for use. One can purchase a variety of embossing and die cutting tools to use with this unit, not only Sizzix brand. I loved the fact that the die cutting "framelits" tools are around $10 which is not bad considering other machines will cost over $50. I purchased the Framelits 8 Die Set, Circles to be able to make the cupcake toppers and a cute banner for the cake table. This Big Shot came with the multi purpose extended platform, which is excellent for everything from the Framelits to the large dies and embossing, etc. I love this machine and I am so glad I decided on this one to get. Now I can do plenty of DIY projects for my little one and also for friends. I love it so much that Ari's cupcake toppers are completed and they came out super cute!
 The Monkey Love cupcake topper images were made by Moodzonline an Etsy shop and I purchased the pink, green and blue card stock from Michaels. Click on the picture to go to Moodzonline.
