F06593 - Sizzix BigShot Express Die-Cut Machine w/ 6 Embossing Fold
Big Shot Express failed
I've had mine since May. Even though I hadn't used it a lot, I LOVE the ease of use. I hauled it out yesterday & was in the middle of die-cutting frames for Christmas cards when it completely failed. QVC is replacing it at no charge. I'm hoping Sizzix has fixed the problem, so I'll give them another chance.
Love My Sizzix
I am an avid scrapbooker. I own one or more of the leading die cutting machines and and this one rates high on my list. It is very easy to use and the design possibilites are are endless.
I have owned this item for about 7 months now and used it very little. I went to use it today and it no longer works. The motor appears to be dead, even though I have only used the unit maybe 6-7 times total. I owned the original "red" Sizzix and upgraded to this one thinking it would be great to let the machine do all the "hard-worK". I won't ever go the route of an "electric" machine again.
AWESOME, EASY TO USE
I just received this machine and am very impressed with how easy it is to use. I avoided buying the other electric Die-cut machines because of their price and cost of replacement parts (like the blades). I have used sizzix my entire scrapbooking life and loved the products. When I saw that they were coming out with an electric one I knew I had to own it!!!!!! A few years ago I was diagnosed with RA and extensive use of my hands causes a lot of pain. I slowed down on my scrappin' quite a bit. Now, I feel that creative bug biting me again. I played with this for hours, and no pain!!!
Fantastic, easy and fun!!!
This so easy to use! My DIL and I, have had so much fun using this, it does a wonderful job..I recommend this to everyone!!
No more aching wrists
Just came today (a day early)
I was just hoping it would get here early Friday.
I am loving it. Now I need some more embossing folders.
Everyone seem to be wondering about the Screwdriver
I got the answer
If the *sandwich* becomes jammed in the rollers and the motor stops working, wait 30 seconds while the machine resets itself. then reverse the direcetion of feed and back out of the jammed *sandwich*. If themotor stops again, the *sandwich * can be manually extracted by using the Maintenance Screwdriver included with the Big Shot Expess Machine.
There is a pictue also with some more info towards the back of the instruction booklet.
Sorry if someone already posted this.
I just received mine yesterday and I played all night! I used it for cards and
scrapbooking. It works great for embossing, but it comes out better on heavy
card stock like Bazzill. The only thing found wrong is the plug is short, if
your work area is not against a wall, I need an extension cord, and my table
was not far from my outlet. But it is a wonderful machine and I love it. I would
like to know what the screw driver is for too! Loving it in S. Fla Paula
I couldn't resist this product, proved to be worth every dime.
I received this last week and now I'm addicted! I love all the little embossing envelopes. I'm finding myself embossing everything! This is great for card making and scrapbooking. I also love the fact that you can use other die cuts or embossing things with this. So fun to use! I too would like to know what the little screwdriver is for.
LOVE IT !!!!!!
I received this last week and used it over the weekend and I LOVE IT. I have had my original sizzix machine for years and this is a much apreciated improvement. I also have the cuttlebug and the dies from that also works with this machine. I will be doing a little more scrapbooking and card making now. Thanks QVC for the easy pay.
I recieved my Sizzix big Shot express 2 days ago and I'm in love!!! I am not a scrapbooker, I make hairbows and wanted it to do felt flowers. It works fabulously! Cuts through two sheets of felts with no problem!!! Super Escited!!!!
Sorry to say
I am sorry to ruin a 5-star reputation. I received the Sizzix Big Shot yesterday and today I am returning it. While it does standard cuts well, fold lines & embossing leave much room for improvement.
The Spellbinder can create fold lines and emboss their own dies as well as the Sizzix dies much better with greatly improved quality of detail; which after all is just what we are looking for. I am sorry to report my findings on this product because I am a long-time user of the Sizzix products and I have enjoyed them for years. However, when I used it for the Spinning 3-D Pop-Up, it was difficult to fold correctly due to poorly embossed folds. I found this to be true on other Sizzix dies that required folds and or embossing as well. So I did try.
If you're not looking to do any embossing, use texture plates, or have difficulty with your hands, this would be an good system for you."
