So this machine came out last year and I saw it on amazon for about £85, and I had it in my basket for AGES, like weeks if not months, before I decided I didn’t need it and deleted it from my basket, because I already have the regular sized machine so why would I really need two! Fast forward a few months and I changed my mind and decided I did need it except now it was £50 MORE! No way was I paying that when I knew it had been so much cheaper a few months earlier, so I kept it in my basket and kept monitoring the price – which did not move at all! Then yesterday, BAM! back down to £85 so I snapped it up before the price increased again!
Retail price on Sizzix £144.98, current price on amazon £85!
It’s everything you love about the Big Shot – plus the versatility to use 8 1/2″ x 11″ materials! With a sleek white and gray color scheme and the Sizzix logo embossed on the handle, the Big Shot Plus die cutting Machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the entire Sizzix product library (with the exception of Bigz Pro dies) – including our smallest to our big 9″ wide plastic-backed dies and embossing tools. If that wasn’t big enough, this portable roller machine cuts and embosses many different materials. Create your own one-of-a-kind cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home décor, fashion, altered art, quilting and much more!
My reasons for buying this model are probably different to why other people generally buy it. I don’t really want any of the wider dies that are made for this machine, plus they are super expensive! I really just want to be able to run things through that are on wider substrates so that I have room to manoeuvre them without butting up against the six inch width of the regular machine or having to cut down my card etc.
