I was disappointed that I need to purchase additional pads to use the machine. I feel for the price it should have provided the necessary pads to use all of my die cuts and embossing folders.
I have wanted some of the bigger dies that require the pro cutter so it was my Christmas present to myself. It is great. The machine is very excellent constructed and will be much loved and used. I have also purchased some of the big flower dies and they cut wonderfully with the pro!
I love the Big Shot Pro and I got it to use an accucut die that was about 10 inches wide. It turned out to be to thick for the Big Shot Pro but I was able to find a thinner plastic piece and run the die on the base tray without the instruction board that sits inside the tray. I am very happy I got this die to run through the Big Shot Pro.
I love this machine, just wonder if it will be durable. The rubber edge is wearing off already. And since I bought the 4.5 strip cutter along with 2.5 it already needs new cutting mats. At $40.00 its a cost that i didnt count on so soon. The directions are lacking. But I still love the strips that come out of it. Made huge quilt and only need a few strips to bind.
