Could anybody tell me if the dies from 'My Creative Time' will work in a Big Shot? Do I need to use something special or can I just use the cutting platform that came with my Big Shot? Thanks! Don't know how I ended up on their mailing list but they have some cute stuff and some of their dies are calling my name. But I don't want to have to buy another cutting machine to use them.

I never heard of them before either and I have been getting their e-mails recently. I hope somebody knows if I can use their dies in my Big Shot because a few of their dies are really cute! I hope it's okay to link them because I think they sell different stuff than this site. Just call me an enabler....

It seems so... Might have to use a shim.

I wonder if they are like a Quickutz or Zipemate die as I use them all the time with just the platform that came with my Big Shot and don't need a shim.

Have you contacted the company and asked? I did see they have a metal adapter plate that they say is for use with the Cuttlebug.

Thanks dalia1024. I did e-mail them but it is Saturday night so thought I might get a quicker answer here.

My mention of the shim was because they sell the metal adapter, and I see no need to purchase one.

Thanks revirdsuba, I too am thinking I won't need their metal adapter (and I see it's sold out!). I have seen your posts and figure you are a die lover like me.

Thanks everyone, I am in the mood to do some late night shopping and I figured the Peas might be able to help.

Last post. I e-mailed them and I just got a reply, I am impressed because it is late on a Saturday night. YES IT WILL WORK IN THE BIG SHOT!
