Get ready crafters, we have some pretty epic and amazing things to talk about today. We’ve recently added a new Sizzix machine to our family of power house die cutters, and we have completely fallen in love with our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit. It’s everything you love about the Big Shot- but super sized! This awesome starter kit includes not only the Big Shot Plus Machine, but 1 Platform, 1 Adapter A, 1 Adapter B, 1 Pair of Cutting Pads, 1 Thinlits Die Set, 1 Bigz XL, and 1 Textured Impressions Plus Embossing Folder! We love the versatility that comes with this all inclusive kit, allowing you to use the entire Sizzix product lines (with the exception of the Bigz Pro dies). From Party Planning, to Home Décor, to Paper Crafting and Jewelry Making, this awesome starter kit will get you on your way to making some amazingly awesome crafts in no time!
Who doesn’t love a fantastic holiday party? With the Big Shot Plus, Michelle Stewart was able to create this amazing Christmas Craft Party, adding cupcake toppers to her delicious looking treats.
To make these super cute cupcake toppers, Michelle simply took her Bigz die, her black mat board, and cutting pads and made a Sizzix sandwich and sent it through her Big Shot Plus. She then added some red glitter as an accent. How awesome is this?
We love elegant festivities, from wedding receptions, to bridal showers and baby showers, all these get-togethers that we love attending, but that take so much work to plan and decorate for. The Big Shot Plus Starter Kit can help you make some of the most elegant and lovely crafts, like a Love Bird Decorative Bottle as a table centerpiece, or charms for the bottom of your wine or Champaign flutes. Our favorite though, is the Dessert Stand, simply made by using the Big Shot Plus, the die of your choice, card stock, some ink for color, and voila! Instant gorgeousness.
Jewelry makers, we cannot begin to imagine all of the amazing pieces you will be making. With the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit, embossing metal designs has never been easier, or more fun! Using Sizzix DecoEmboss Dies by Vintaj, and the Big Shot Plus, you can make your own Santa Fe Necklace, sure to bring a pop to your outfit! Add some snazzy charms to your wrist with a cute Cameo Bracelet, using dies specifically made to cut through thicker material, or go rustic and classy with a Riveting Butterfly Bracelet. All of these fantastic pieces of jewelry can be made with ease using our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit!
Spice up your home with some crafting fun! From making custom frames for your memories and pictures, to creating decorative labels for your kitchen, to even making pillows for your furniture, the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit will help make over your home into a showcase of your awesome creative crafting abilities!
Papercrafting is a breeze with the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit. Making intricate cards like the Victorian Frame Card is smooth sailing since your accessories already come with your machine. No second guessing if you need an extra adaptor in order to use your dies. But what if you’re feeling simple and just need to make someone’s day a little brighter? A card like the Get Well Dragonfly Flip-its Card is as easy as die cutting, embellishing and giving it to the person of your choice! Maybe you’re feeling like a unique note is more what you need to create- the Handmade Note Card perfectly allows you to use the Big Shot Plus to its full capabilities, and also lets you add some hand stitching if you choose. And don’t worry scrapbookers, we didn’t forget about you all! Keep those precious memories in a wonderful layout like the Tunnel of Love Scrapbook Page by easily adding borders, shapes, embellishments- whatever your imagination comes up with! The sky literally is the limit!
It was absolutely awesome to see our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit making an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show with Dr. Gadget as one of this season’s Hot Holiday Gadgets. (We hope the Big Shot Plus doesn’t let this time in the national spotlight go to its head though.)
If you’re here from the Wendy Williams Show and were lucky enough to be a member of the studio audience, your Big Shot Plus Starter Kit is on it’s way! Inside you’ll find detailed project instructions so you can get started making! First up? This adorable decorative box which you can create using our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit! It’s perfect for gift giving, home decor, party favors and more!
We are so excited about our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit. It has everything you need to get crafting as soon as you open the box. But it does lend to the question: What separates this from the other Sizzix machines? Besides the starter kit coming with all of your adapters, cutting pads and platforms, (not to mention the bonus of added dies and an embossing folder) the Big Shot Plus allows for more crafting versatility. The Big Shot Plus measures at 9 inches wide, a full 3 inches more than the Big Shot machine. This allows for larger crafting- bigger pieces of material to be die cut, bigger die cuts to create larger crafts and eliminates the precarious placement of getting materials to fit into the machine in order to die cut them.
Our Big Shot machine will always hold a special place near and dear to our hearts, but we’re infatuated with our Big Shot Plus Starter Kit. What crafts would you create with our newest addition?
