Big Shot Tips

big-shot1

I have had my Big Shot from Stampin’ Up! and I absolutely LOVE IT!   I thought I would add this page with tips related to the Big Shot so they would be in one place.  Information on here is gathered from various places including Sizzix, Stampin’ Up! and other demonstrators.  I hope you will find it useful and I will add to it as I find new tips to share.

The Big Shot is a sturdy, manual die-cutting and embossing machine used to die cut materials for use on all kinds of crafts—it’s a big deal! You’ll love what the Big Shot machine can do for you.

With the Big Shot you can instantly create die-cut or embossed shapes, tags, frames, borders, and more. The Big Shot is portable and requires no electricity. Many of our dies coordinate with our exclusive stamp images, simplifying the creative experience for you.

Planning and preparing projects is fast and economical with the Big Shot machine. You’ll be able to cut and score 3-D items in seconds and the projects will be ready to enjoy. Or create embellishments for cards, scrapbook pages, or any other type of project by cutting multiple images in a short amount of time.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing….may I share this further crediting you as the source?

    Recently came across the Vintaj jewlery makings and their embossing folders. Have you tried this with our SU Big Shot. I saw a version of the Big Shot from Sizzix but it looks the same as ours except for color.
    Thanks
