Stampin’ Up Featured Product ~ BIG SHOT

Oh boy ……………  do I love my Big Shot – from the very first time Stampin’ Up! started to sell it in 2008 to the present day it has been a part of my work bench – close and ready to use when needed.  Over the years the die cutter itself has not changed much but the accessories and dies now available are fantastic offering a whole range of designs and techniques, many of which I have shown in various cards and project on this blog.
