Sizzix Big Shot

In the past couple of years my craft items are in regular use.  I guess in some respects used heavily, but even so, I was surprised when my Sizzix Big Shot made a thud/cracking noise and the handle then went floppy.  Hubby, investigated the die cutter and pronounced it dead!

I went on-line to find a replacement and was surprised at the prices.  I opted for one from Hobbycraft at £55 with free delivery.  (I think I paid a similar, if not more for my original machine three or four years ago).  As a new customer they offer a 15% discount on your next order (this is not discounted at checkout, you need to check your emails for a code and then apply it to your order, but even without the code I think it is still a great price.

Today my new Big Shot arrived and is ready for action, so normal crafting can resume again.


  1. Brilliant bargain I have one of these and use it all the time

  2. Yes, they are fab. This is my second one. I had a Cuttlebug before my last Big Shot and it seemed very lightweight in comparison. I love my Big Shot.
