A Pressie from the Posty

Hi Everyone

I did promise you that I would show you what I was getting all excited about from the posty - so without further ado here it is ...

Woooo eeeeee!  How lucky am I?

I've been pondering, cogitating, digesting, mulling over buying a larger die cutting machine for a long time but couldn't decide which one to have.

I know there are now a few in the market, but some of them felt cheap and some wouldn't take an array of other manufacturers' dies, then I came across this baby at the GNPE show in March.  I had a little touch, a little play, had another walk around and had a play with other die cutting machines, came back and had yet another play with this one, discovered that it would take all dies and cuts just about anything you could ever want it too - but I still went away empty handed :o(

So, several months later and after lots and lots of research the decision was made - a Big Shot Pro it was.  This machine is mahoosive - look at it compared to by little iddy biddy Big Shot:

All I need to do now is go and get myself some great big dies (good job the GNPE is next Saturday!) and have a jolly good play around.

I will keep you posted.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

Oooh, I've been thinking about getting me one of these. I like the fact it will cut anything (and I hear the grand caliber is a tad flimsy) How do you find it? Where did you get yours? Sorry to bombard you with questions! Lol
