Am I a ribbon addict?

My beasty Bigshot Pro......makes the original Bigshot look tiny.    The cutting plates are minimum 12" x 12".......I love it, imagine filling a 12" x 12" sheet of card with loads of different dies and cutting them all together....saves me so much time. But, it's the most expensive manual cutting machine available, so is definitely a considered purchase. (I haven't begrudged a penny of Alan's money...haha)

 I can't claim this idea as mine, because I saw it on someones blog, but I loved it......within a week I had Alan down to Homebase, buying some timber and panel pins :)   It nicely filled a boring spot in my craft room. There's dozens and dozens of each colour, but it's hard to see them all in the photo.

The little clips were bought in Wilkinsons £1 for 8, from the laundry section... I will get around to colour co-ordinating them soon, just need to buy a few more.


  1. Hello Barbara. I just popped in to visit your blog so I am now following. I love to see how other crafters organise their workspace and I love what you have done with your ribbon stash- so very clever! My craft room is stripped out ready for a refurb starting next week so I'm on the dining table until it' all finished in hopefully two or three weeks time.
    Your blog is lovely and I will visit as often as I can.
    Plaese visit and follow me if you can - I'd love to have your company.
