Nicely made machine by Sizzix; but.............Sizzix no longer makes the multipurpose cutting platform that used to come with all the Big Shot/Bigkick machines. I am a card maker/scrapbooker and that platform is essential. After much cussing and a very good YouTube video on the machines, I realized this fact and went searching for what I needed. You can either buy an extended platform, which has all you need or you can buy a thin die plate to enable machine to cut all die on the market. Why would Sizzix sell a machine to me without the basics I need to make my projects? I just don't understand it. So if you purchase this machine and have cutting the thinner dies, be aware you MUST buy the multipurpose platform or the additional platform in order to use it.
I have only gotten to use this machine once so far. With a die to make Christmas cards. I love it!!! I have never had a die cutter, embossing or quilt die cutter before and this thing is fabulous! I can't wait to get more dies and embossing folders. Quilt dies too!
