I also generally buy my spellbinders at Joanns with a 40% or 50% off coupon,,,,this week there's a 50% off coupon, so I will take my dd and we will each use a coupon to buy a set of nesties.



Me, too. After telling me that they had discontinued Spellbinders, they now have a HUGE display. My Michael's has recently started carrying them, too. And you can use coupons for them!

Also, Holly, do you have a smart phone? M's & J's both have apps that send you 40% and 50% coupons constantly. (Seriously, as soon as you use one another will be available within a few days. Joann's seems to send more.)

This is exactly what I was looking for....personal opinions, coupled with examples! I went looking for the Sizzix Big Shot and Michael's no longer carries them (go figure since I had a 50% off coupon. Will continue to look so if anyone has suggestions, please let me know. I'd like to have the die-cutting capability in case I decide I will use it later. For now, my main reason for wanting a machine is for embossing. Thank you ladies for your input!

it's a craft and sewing store here in the US. They put out coupons every week for 40 or 50% off one regular priced item,,,,,

if nesties are on sale for 40% off, I don't need a coupon,,,,,,,if they are not on sale, I use a coupon,,,

last week I had a 40% off coupon, and nesties were on sale for 25% off that sucked,,,,,,,so I just bought ONE set.

Joanns had a great sale last week on just about all of their diecutting and embossing machines and supplies. I'm looking into getting a Big Shot, but just ordered some embossing plates for now. Two friends have Big Shots, so I can always borrow theirs when we get together. I already have my Cricut Expression for diecutting in the meantime, too.

the Big Kick won't take the grand nesties though,,,,at least not the largest of them,,,,

I love my big kick,,,,but I wish I'd bought the spellbinders grand wizard,,,,




Correct, the Bick Kick will NOT take the Grand Nesties.

I'm dying at the "grand wizard" comment...LOL! Holly, the Spellbinders machines are the Wizard (old one) and the Grand CAlibur (new one).
The Grand Wizard was the leader of the Ku Klux Klan!!!!!!!

I love this, and now that's all I can think of, bahaha!

Does the Big Kick do both die cutting and embossing? Been researching it all over the net and it doesn't spell it out!

Ok, I am beginning to see a clear picture now. Sizzix Big Shot and Big Kick are the same thing; a die cutter/embosser. The spellbinder offers both options as well but can also use the nestabilities. If I'm understanding this correctly, I need to decide if the nestabilities is something I want now or in the future; if so, I'm better off with the spellbinder.
For those wondering, yes, I'm blonde! LOL

the big kick and big shot WILL cut the regular sized nesties,,,,,,,and MOST of the grand nesties (much larger nestiess),,,

but it will not cut the LARGEST of the grand nesties!

you can still cut regular nesties with them,,,,,


see??

both the big shot and the cb are excellent machines,,

pretty much the same, and they each have some benefits over the other,,,,,,

IMHO, it might just depend on which you can get for a better price,,,,,,nobody had any CB's when I went looking,which is why I wound up with the Big Kick

Thank you all for your help with my decision. I'm going to try to get the spellbinder so I have additional capabilities (cutting the largest nesties)

that's what I'd do, Ann Marie.

when I slow down with my current addictions:

stamps
copics
nesties,,,,


I might just buy me one too,,,,,maybe with my Xmas money.
