Sizzix Big Shot starter kitCurious about die-cutting?

The Big Shot Starter Kit  is a pretty nifty place to start. You'll quickly be hooked if you're a fan of batch card making, your cutting skills are often a bit wonky, or you just a fancy playing around with cutting card, paper, felt, fabric or shrink plastic. The starter kit includes a set of starter 'dies' (these are basically shape cutters) plus a Textured Impressions Embossing folder, plus 'how to' DVD, cardstock and the Big Shot itself.  For more die-cutting projects, check out our card making ideas over on The Making Spot... my favourite are these die-cut felt animal cards - cut using a Big Shot machine and perfect for giving new arrivals in the family a wild welcome!
