    That is great. I love my big shot pro. I found I can use acuquilt go dies. I put a piece of corrugated cardboard under them to shim and they work great.

    Just got my BSP a couple of weeks ago. I already had a GO! that I really do love, but the BSP was such a good deal and because of the size, could cut more layers. The drawback is it is not as portable---it doesn't fold up and weighs a ton, so I put it on a utility cart that my DH had purchased for the garage, but hadn't put together yet---so I claimed it :) . My quilting space is a little tight, but so far it is doable. I am thinking I might move it up to the family room and cut out up there watching tv. Anyway, you can use the GO! dies with a shim and I think the Studio dies as is. Where did you find the annoucement for the Sizzix dies?

    I have the original Sizzix and have had great success with the old dies. I can hardly wait for these.
