This is the first time I've ever purchased or used a die cutting machine. Set up was easy and the machine was not difficult to learn how to use. The instructions that come with the machine are limited, but the Silhouette website offers great tutorials and guidance. I suggest you also watch and learn from you tube videos before you begin. Happy crafting!!!
I believe the BIG SHOT die cutting machine is an excellent tool for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It works easily, does a great job of die cutting and also works with embossing folders. I have tried other die cutting machines but this is my first choice for a die cutting machine.
This machine is awesome and cuts time die cutting in half as you can cut several dies at once or cut the larger dies fit quilting. It is heavy and a large size so you want to keep it stationary. I recommend this for all die cutting, especially heavy duty jobs!
I had the cuttlebug die cut machine, but this one is so much larger and the additional magnetic platform that you can get made it a must have. I now can get perfect placement on my cuts and can cut almost any die out there on the market that I want. I love this machine and am so glad I got it. :)
