Will the Quickutz Gingerbread mini album work in a Sizzix Big Shot machine? If so, what kind of a platform and adaptor size do I use for that album? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes,the Gingerbread set will work but you
will need this platform and this adapter and these cutting mats

IF you have the Sizzix multi-purpose platform you should be good to go...

The multi-purpose platform came with my Big Shot. I LOVE my BigShot and use all dies in it!!!!

The multi purpose platform, that comes with the Big Shot/Kick is too short as some of the Gingerbread dies are about 12"long. You need the extended platform with adaptor and cutting pads, but it's sooooo worth it!
I've been using mine in my BigShot to make a couple of gift albums and how they turned out!!!

If I have those platforms, can I also use my QuicKutz border dies in the Big Shot?

For border dies and my Big Shot, I bought this Extended Spacer Platform (narrow)

and these cutting pads

But together they still aren't thick enough for QK (they work great for the Sizzix decorative strips b/c there's that extra layer of foam on those already). To use the QK, is there something else I need?

I have added an extra sheet of cardstock, you may need 2 sheets to the 'sandwich' in order to cut my Quickutz border dies in my Big Shot - works great. I cannot believe that Sizzix have not produced a 12" flourish for their bigshot series.

I use the mats that came with my BS, and add some cardstock for shims if I need to.

What's the best way to use the 4x8 alphas in the BigShot? I ran one of mine through on the multipurpose platform(the one that came with the BS)and it warped the die. It still seems to cut fine but it won't lay flat anymore.

You need this adapter. The one shown is for the wider 12" platform. I don't think they have one for the narrower platform, but you could cut it down to fit. On the other hand the wider QK borders are too wide for the platform you have, so it would make more sense to get this one anyway.
