Well, I broke down and bought a Big Shot machine. It was sort of "by accidnet." I am really happy with my Cuttlebug and wasn't even looking at the Big Shot. However, I ordered some dies, thinking they would work with my Cuttlebug, but they didn't. They were just a smidge too big. They are the Movers and Shapers from Sizzix. I really wanted to use those dies, so my only option was to get the Big Shot. I got a good deal on it--$59 at JoAnns on sale, so it worked out well. This is the die that came with the machine--a four pane window, I love working with it. The stamp is called "throwing stars" and you can find it at
Stamp'N Plus Scrap'N along with tons of other Patti's Kids designs. The white fence is a Martha Stewart punch.
