The cutting of fabric for my last few quilts has been made much easier thanks to my Sizzix Big Shot machine. You may have seen some of the many Instagram pictures that I’ve posted of various die-cut shapes, including the circles on my Abacus Quilt. Sometimes is just nice not to have to reach for the ruler and rotary cutter!

If all my talking about die cutting has got you itching to try it yourself then you’re in luck!  I’ve found out that Sizzix are running a competition to win a Big Shot Plus Starter Kit at their Facebook and Twitter pages.  The Big Shot Plus machine has all the great features of the machine you’ve seen me use, except it now has the versatility to use 8.5″ x 11″ materials!

To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is ‘Like’ the Sizzix Facebook page, then ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ the giveaway post.  The winner will be chosen at random on Friday 8th May 4pm and the competition is open to all UK and EU residents only.  How great would it be if one of you won!  Good luck!
