The amazing alternative to the Sizzix Big Shot Machine!
Many years have now passed since the launch of the Sizzix “Big Shot” die-cutting machine and it was – let’s face it – a true revolution in the crafting world: for the first time ever, a machine thought with an industrial die-cutting concept (the same used for the cutting of all those boxes that we use everyday!) was suddenly available for all crafting and creative sewing enthusiasts! This market has expended more and more throughout the years, along with the making of improved accessories and dies. But when it came to the machine, the only option was always the Big Shot machine.
Up until now!
Now we finally have a fantastic alternative here in Europe too! And we must say it’s a truly interesting alternative with plenty of features that are impossible to resist. Let’s see them together … here!
Bye bye sandwich!
The Evolution machine has an height adjustment gear that automatically adjusts the machine’s rollers to fit each project, so you no longer have to figure out which mat combinations (sandwiches) are needed for them.
It folds (but it doesn’t break of course!)
The Evolution machine has a fold-up design, which makes it essentially foldable, like a tiny suitcase that you can carry with you everywhere you go. The handle is removable and can be stored in a handy compartment in the machine’s platform.
Already have plenty of dies from other brands? No problem!
You can use the Evolution machine with most leading-brand dies and embossing folders.
Size matters 😉
Of course size matters! The Evolution machine is the same size as the Big Shot machine in the cutting area (about 15cm X 33cm); but is quite different when it comes to the size of what you can cut with accessories that are included: no need for any “extended cutting pads” (necessary for bigger cutting projects when using the Big Shot machine) to cut dies up to 33 cm long! As for the dies, it gives you the possibility to cut dies, cards and much more for those projects where you would have to use a Sizzix Big Shot Plus or Pro machine.
How much will it cost me?
We can’t lie, the price is crucially important … but in this case it’s just another benefit! Its price is in fact the same as the Big Shot machine and with the discount that Casa Cenina is offering, you will be sure to make a great deal 😉 If you’re thinking of buying one of these machines, we suggest you consider not only the prices, but also the costs of dies and accessories, and remember that the Evolution machine doesn’t require an additional cutting and embossing platform (thanks to its height adjustment gear), which makes it more convenient.

Until next time.
