Sizzix Fabi Machine vs Big Shot Machine!

May 28th, 2014 | by Cut@Home

Question- What is the difference between the Sizzix Fabi Machine vs Big Shot Machine? Answer- Basically, the Fabi Machine was produced to go with the Sizzix Quilting line of products, does not include a multi-purpose platform, and has a different paint job. (You may purchase the Multi-Purpose Platform separately if you wish to use dies other than Bigz dies with this machine) Yep, that’s basically it. Take a look below for an overview of both machines. If you don’t want to read through all the details, just watch the video tutorial below and I will demonstrate both machines in the video. Sizzix Fabi

Baby Girl Card Ideas!

June 18th, 2013 | by Cut@Home

One of the best purchases I have made in my lifetime has been my Die Cutting Machines and some dies because I have saved so much money (well, you know what I mean) by making my own cards like these baby girl card ideas! Doing this has given me a creative outlet in my cards and scrapbook layouts and have the capability to make original cards for others.  I love that and I know that all of you do too, since we share the same passion! I made these cards mainly with Spellbinders dies and my brand new, pretty blue Sizzix

I love making things to give away and this mini petal Easter basket is a quick and easy little gift for co-workers, friends and family members! My kids are all grown now, and they are all “watching what they eat”, so I thought this would be a perfect size to give each of them for just a little treat this Easter.  Definitely not enough to ruin their healthy living lifestyle, but enough to satisfy their sweet tooth!   This project was easy. I actually ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Pro machine just because I wanted to use a 12 x
