Hi Everyone - after 5+ years without a diecutting machine, I think I'm ready to take the plunge. I particularly like diecuts that are embossed (i.e. Spellbinders). My limited research tells me that only manual diecutters can emboss - is that true? Can a shape be resized (i.e. bigger or smaller) when using an electronic cutter? It appears the manual ones can only cut a certain size.

It looks like the Big Shot Pro can do it all, but I don't really want to spend a fortune, nor do I have a lot of room to store it. Any suggestions on a diecutting machine. What do you like about it?

Oh one more thing - I have carpal tunnel, so wondering if the manual machines will be too hard on my hands?

TIA!!
