You know it is Wednesday because it is time for another JustRite Christmas blog hop extravaganza! Do you look forward to these hops as much as I do? I can't wait to see what the other designers have created and each week different gals from other teams play along too which means a double or triple (as in today's case) dose of creativity!
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Hi Marci - thanks for that great question. I think with time you will find that purchasing the Grand Calibur will be very beneficial because you can cut with many of your smaller dies templates on it all at the same time, as well as cutting the new Grand dies templates (oh and don't forget embossing too!) . However that does not solve your immediate problem...here is some information that I obtained from Spellbinders for you. The bottom line is that you will be able to use your Big Shot to cut some of the dies. The trick is to measure the cutting surface of your Big Shot (specifically the width) to make sure the die templates will fit. The following are measurements of the die templates themselves - from outside edge to outside edge. The individual die cuts will obviously be a bit smaller:
I hope this helps you - can't wait to see some of your projects too :)
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me. Enjoy the hop, see you next week, same time same place for sure!
