I was just doing a little research for an upcoming class and I found this great information I wanted to share with you! I am planning a class on March 11 using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine by Sizzix, and found this extensive list of materials you can use with your machine. This is directly from the Stampin' Up! website (http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/11372.asp):
Big Shot Materials List for Bigz and Originals Dies
The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine and Bigz and Originals dies. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials. As a rule of thumb, you can cut a material with your Big Shot machine and Bigz or Originals dies if you can cut it using your Craft & Paper Scissors.
WOW! So, I really DID know that you can use a LOT of different materials in your Big Shot, but I had NO idea you could use this many! Contact me if you have any questions.
If you are interested in coming to the class, visit my class page and register! I hope to see you there!
