New Big Shot Dies

I just got my big box of goodies! I have to say most of the toys are all Big Shot dies! I was busy yesterday trying them all out so I can visually see them all and how I could use them.

First came the Oval Scallop, see in the photo, it actual die cuts the scallop in blue and then at the same time it does the oval, so it is like getting two die cuts in one! Next I did the Billboard alphabet, it was die cut in Brown and then in red I stamped the Short Order Alphabet, so you can compare the two. Next came the Oval Sizzex. It comes in a set of 3, I die cut them in blue. You can see the 1st two clearly, the last one, I layered the Wide Oval in red on top to see how they would layer up. It actually fits nicely onto of the smallest oval for layering purposes, zoom in on the photo and you should be able to see it. Just for a comparison, I then punched the small and large oval. So know we have like 7 oval shapes and you don't need the coluzzle!

Next, I die cut the Lots of Tags, it is 4 Sizzlets, bu you actually get 5 tags. I punched our Word Window punches and layered it on top of two of our tags to see how they would layer. Then I took the Wide Oval and put it on another tag. Then the last tag I layered the 1 3/8" square.

Next came the Sizzex Circles #2. You will see it comes in a set of 4. The Sizzex Circles, I die cut in the Bashful Blue, then I proceeded to punch out our circles with our punches and layered them. The 2nd circle, I the 1 3/4" circle fits on top, the 3rd large circle the 1 3/8" circle fits nicely on top. The smallest circle is actually a 1" circle.

Next came the Sizzex Clear Circle and that fits beautifully on the Scallop Circle! Yeah! No more coluzzle or Circle Cutter! This is going to be great for mini albums. The best part is that it is a clear die cut, so you can position the Sizzex to see what you are cutting out.

Next, I got the Flower Layers with Leaf. It comes with 3 flowers and a leaf. Also each of the centers of the flowers get cut out as well. I love how the leaf gets a little cut in down the center. The last Sizzex I got was the Swirly. Look how great it looks paired up with these flowers. I see beautiful scrapbook pages in my future. This is as far as I got yesterday with my new toys. Now that I see what they all look like visually, let the creating begin!
