I've Been Shopping!

Ever since I saw the new blue Big Shot at CHA-W 2013, I have wanted it to be mine. It was such a pretty blue! Normally I don't fall for that sort of cosmetic-only change to a machine, but my Big Shot has been acting a little sketchy lately (I really put my machines through a lot of abuse, honestly. I even wore out one Big Shot Pro already. Someone should seriously consider reporting me to the Department of Die Cutting Protective Services.) so I think it's time for it to be retired (i.e. donated to someone who will be nicer to it).
So here's a picture of what the new blue Big Shot looks like:
Also, I'm not sure, but I think these people might come with it in the box. I hope not, though, or the basement is going to start getting really crowded.
In other shopping-related news, I have started hunting down my CHA-S 2013 purchases. It's going to take me a while to track them all down, but I'll get them all in the end!
We finished both versions of the "Picture This!" album last week so this week's USTREAM shows will be using Crate Paper's "The Pier" collection to make a fun summer journal. It will be a really fun book with pockets and other goodies jammed into it. Really interactive!
We have USTREAM every Thursday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern USA time this afternoon and then again this evening from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM Eastern USA time.

All classes and their recordings will be over on my USTREAM channel: Kathryn Scraps!

  1. I'm happy yu got u this pretty machine, lol! I'm hard on my stuff too but haven't worn my Big Shot out yet...looking forward to the show on Thursday...btw how's Scott doing with scanning all those pictures?

    1. Scott was doing great until he went on an extended leave of absence and now we're thinking he may have quit on us. I don't really blame him - it was a HUGE project. I'll try to remember to show you guys one of the finished albums on Thursday. :)

    1. I'm happy to have it, but I should probably also examine why I destroy so many of these machines ... ;D

    Is this exactly like the SU big shot, and will SU's plates fit on this?

    1. Yes, Sizzix makes the BigShot for Stampin Up! so all the dies, pieces and parts are interchangeable between the machines. The differences are just in color and are totally cosmetic.
