Big Shot Class

Hi everyone,

As I said in the last email there are sooo many fabulous products associated with the Big Shot in the new catalogue (pg. 193-203). The Big Shot is a multipurpose die-cut machine that can be used to create fabulous shapes and accessories for cards, scrapbooks and many other craft projects. I have included the Stampin Up description of this fabulous product at the bottom of the page.

When you order the Big Shot you get the machine, the cutting pads and the multipurpose platform for $118.95. I know that it is a huge investment and a lot of money all at once. I am proposing ordering one by payment plan.

I am offering a 4 month payment plan which will include 4 classes- 1 per month. Each month you will pay $40 and come to a class where you will be learning different techniques and tricks using the Big Shot. There will be 3 projects per class and at the end of the 4 months you will leave with your machine. You will feel comfortable with the machine and know how to use it. If you already have a Big Shot you can still come to the classes- it will be $15 a class.

I can't say enough about how great this machine is. You can cut through up to 8 pieces of paper at once using the dies! It makes stamping/scrapbooking sooo fast! There are dies that can cut out bags and envelopes- which saves a lot of time since all the measuring is eliminated. There are nestabilities that include up to 4 different sizes of the same shape such as circles or ovals on one die- you don't need to own a group of punches for layering with these. For scrapbooking you can cut out letters and numbers- so handy. And my personal favorite- all the dry embossing possibilities! From single images to full backgrounds I just love them.

If you already have a machine like the cuttlebug you can use all of the dies and folders in this machine. Actually, when one of my friends was debating which machine she should purchase she posted this thread on splitcoast and the positive feedback for the Big Shot was overwhelming:

I have also included an attachment that lists all of the materials that can be used- there are over 50 that you can use with the dies from cardstock to tin to denim.

Please let me know by Friday, January 30th if you are interested in the offer and the classes.


PS. I have heard a lot of you say that you don't have the space for it. It really is not that big- it takes up the space of maybe 4 punches.
