So happy-My BF ordered the Big Shot for me tonight from Joann's. He got it for $60 plus free shipping so it was a good deal. Can't wait to get it and start playing!

For you sizzix fans-I would love to know what your favorite dies are!

I would recommend all the Tim Holtz alterations dies, they are just so versatile!

I was a little disappointed with the T.H. on the edge dies...for some reason, I thought they would be bigger!

I do love T.H. Tatterred Florals and Sizzix Bigz Flower Layers 3 for making my own homemade flowers.

I just used the Sizzix Bigz Flourish & Decorative Accent with flower for making your own flourishes!

Congrats on your bigkick! I've had mine since Christmas and I really love it! So much easier to use than my sil...although I love my sil too.

my fav dies at the moment (and I only own ONE set but fixing to fix that!) are the shapeabilities dies and nesties from spellbinders,,,oooo so pretty! They just have such pretty edges and embossing capabilities,,,you'll need a tan mat to emboss them (or a plumber's mat you can get at Home depot!) but they are INCREDIBLE!

LOVE the Tim Holtz dies. A definate must have. I just picked up a latches and hinges die yesterday at Michael's that reminded me of the TH dies, on clearance for only $4.99. They had quite a few of the large dies on clearance as well as others. Any flower dies are good to make your own...or flourish dies...use those often;)

Absolutely the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral, it's amazingly versatile...
I just got the new 3-D Flower and love it, perfect for flower centers and rosebuds.
Speaking of Tim, Gadget Gears and Hardware Findings are great, too.
Did you look at the Texture Fades, or any other embossing folders??? They're wonderful!!!!

I have lots of Sizzix dies, from the little Sizzlits to decorative strips to the Originals and the Bigz. Lately I'm using my BigKick for Nestabilities, though. I *love* those! As far as the Sizzix dies go, I really like having the tags, several alpha sets and strips, the decorative strips, and different flowers.

Stampin' Up also sells dies for the Big Shot. I love the top note die which is exclusive to Stampin' Up.

Oh I am a die junkie! I love them all, and have several alpha sets, but I think the dies I use the most are the border dies, flourishes and flowers. I have bought several dies here, but I frequently go to the sizzix website and shop the clearance section there. Tuesday Teasers on the sizzix website is a constant temptation too.

Love cuttlebug embossing folders and also spellbinders. Use them more than any of my sizzix dies.

i love just about all dies, but i don't have a big shot. still with my sizzix when I choose to use it, i tend to go to the flowers and flourries dies the most. my cricut is what i go to for lettering most of the time because it is so easy to resize and i can get exactly what i want using my bug.
