Don't forget the Manhattan Flower Textured Folder, or whatever it is called...
Okay...I'm breaking down and doin' it. I'm getting the Big Shot! I'm not a scrapbooker, but I am a card maker and 3-D crafter. Sooooo, what are the must have dies?
On my list already:
Textruz Plate Background #1
Matchbox Bigz XL die
Embosslit Simple Flower
Talk me out of any or in of any. Just do it fast as I want to place my order ASAP.
I use the little branches one a lot! sorry, don't have catty in front of me but its a sizzlet. also Billboard is a quick and easy way to get small letters. And I"m loving the cake die... wasn't goign to get it and its probably had more use than any other...lol
still have a list.. oh love the daisy #2...
Skip the simple flower and get the Daisies#2, you will so use it more!
I agree with Rose, skip the embosslet and get Daisies #2. The ones I use ALL the time are:
-Sizzlets Little Leaves
Ones i have and NEVER use:
-baskets and blooms
I agree on the daises, I've used that on cards, it's beautiful! The other one to think about is the butterfly die. I really love that one. I've also used the birds and blooms quite a bit. The flowers are the perfect size for cards.
And I'm dying to get the matchbox die, I'm getting tired of going to my uplines to use it and it's perfect for gifting jewelry.
I too used the daisy #2 die a lot. Top note is a must also! lol
I just got the little leaves and have started using it too.
Texture plate Background #1 use a lot.
The Scallop evnelope is great for 3-d projects which I have used in the for the 3-d challenges.
I also have been using the Beautiful Butterflies too.
When life gives you LEMONS, make LEMONADE.... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party!
I have had my Big Shot since last fall and I am still lovin' it and using it. I am so glad I bought it!
Top Note is my most used,
Texturz plates #1
Manhattan Flower Embossing folder
You will love your Big Shot!!
I too am not a big scrapbooker but I broke down and got the big shot and I'm glad I did...I find myself scrapbooking alot more....as far as dies...I have quite a few and I too use the top note the most....enjoy your big shot
Thank you for the suggestions! Does anyone have the Circle Scallop die? Is it the same size as the Carousel Notes?
I have the circle scallop die, but not carousel notes. The cut circle is 4 3/4" - according to the catalog description of carousel notes, that would be somewhat smaller.

Wowza...that is smaller. I did go ahead and order it, so if it is too small, I can mount it on a 5x5 square card. Thanks for the heads up!
So...what did you decide on?
The Big Shot
Texturz Plates Background #1
Sizzlits Little Leaves (upon someone's suggestion!)
That's the sexy stuff, plus all the pads to make the sandwiches. I'm thrilled I finely ordered it all. I need a personal shopper who will force me to buy things as soon as they are available. I have a whole lot of catching up to do now!
I'm an original sizzix owner (that I rarely used) and just got the bigshot. OMG! Why did I wait so long? What a huge difference! I am only waiting until I'm back at work (read making $$ after being off with a broken foot) to order the box and envelope die. That one looks awesome. I'm a sucker for boxes. I bought the A2 envelope die and think that was a total waste, as was the movers and shapers envelope, it seems smaller than the card size. I haven't actually TRIED it yet so shouldn't bash it. I also got the "look here" gift card holder and can't wait to use it to hold all the gift cards at Christmas. I'm just waiting until I have the gift cards so I can match the colors to the cards. Congrats on your BS. I see this is an older thread, what have you gotten and loved? What do you regret? I'm still in the want every die mode.
I'd skip the matchbox and get some texture folders and another flower.
