Went into Oxford for my monthly visit yesterday and they actually had the latest P&Q. Loved the giraffe, have an idea for that, and I love the Log Cabin. Bought the magazine, and it was a good read too.

Hi Maria

I have the Sizzix Big Shot and the Big Shot Plus and love both. Both are fairly weighty machines and you need the space to store them as they do not fold up. The Big Shot Plus takes the larger, wider dies, but if you just plan on using it for simpler shapes like squares, hsts, triangles, circles and simpler applique then the Big Shot may suit you and is cheaper!

I am not too convinced on these new electric models, as what happens if something goes wrong with the electrics?

Hello Maria,

I have a Cuttlebug which folds up. I haven't used it much so I will look for the dies, in a shoebox and the cuttlebug itself and give it another go

Hi Maria, I use a "go cutter" which I like but I think the dies are expensive. I don't know if they are available in the UK.

Our club bought an electric 'Scan & Cut" but only a couple of members used it, it was too complicated and fickle so we sold it. I think it's more suited to card making.

Mental picture for you - I don't usually do the grocery shop on a Saturday and I had a job to park. Found a space for my small car between 2 'Chelsea Tractors'. Got out of the door o.k. and then got completely stuck, wedged in by the convex sides of the cars. Had to breath in hard, press my ample back side firmly against my car and wriggle free! After doing the shopping I knew that I would get stuck again, so this time I stood on tip toes to get my backside above the convex bulge and tip toe into the car!

Hope no one was watching!
