Is there such a thing on the market?


I was looking at The wizard or the cuttlebug but I would love to find something that would do 12x12 embossing? Am I dreaming of the craft machine that does not exist?

I use a AccuCut Grand Mark. With shimming, I use any embossing or die...It's huge and heavy , tho. I'm probably the only one on here with this baby! lol!

How do you do this? I have never seen anything on there that would allow you to use embossing folders?

There is a kit you can buy or the cheap method is to turn your blade so the cutting part is in the housing unit and the other end becomes your embossing blade. On the mat you can use silicone or fun foam; you will have to tape it down. I use the pressure at high, speed at high and the housing at 3....hope this helps...I have a video that I need to upload of you want to see it....

but that doesn't use folders, right??? Not sure I'd want to risk doing something with my cricut that it isn't intended to do,but boy those 12x12 embossing machines are expensive!

They also have embossing folders for the cricut, but you will still need the cuttlebug for the embossing part.

I have a Big Shot Pro and I love it!!! my first and only machine.It takes 12x 12 paper and all dies that I have tried. But you do have to buy the solo platform and shim to use the thin dies. Including texture and embossing folders .I cant wait till they bring out 12 x 12 embossing folders the machine will be worth its weight in gold then.Its very easy to use and cuts beautifully.

I still want 12x12 embossing! I have the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System but still no ful 12x12 embossing folders I am researching how to make my own. The Xyron Creatopia looked great to me but was discontinued

I have the Creatopia, but there were such limited embossing rollers available that it's not a big help for that. I mainly bought it for laminating, full-page adhesive, and cutting...and it's purple :>)

The Pazzles does. The new Vue also does print and cut.
