So I don't know anything about embossing, other than it's an image that is pressed into paper. So is there a method to emboss an entire sheet of paper like some of them that you can buy. I don't want to spend a bunch of $$ buying a machine. I kind of was thinking with a coupon maybe getting the Sizzix one that looks like a purse, since I understand that it can use Cuttlebug templates with it, but there isn't anyway that those little machines do full sheets, is there?
I have a Grand Calibur and the largest dies are the Grand Nesties and the largest is approx. 7 inches. This one below is acutally 7 3/8".
I think it would be Grand if you could cut 12 inch long borders, etc. but of course they would also need a longer set of plates? Not sure but I think I would be quite satisfied that what they have then. I love almost all of their dies.
I do think I want the Sizzix Texture one. I am not really into manual dicutting machines. I had the sidekick for a while, but got rid of it. I have a Cricut that I'm perfectly happy with. I would really love to be able to emboss full sheets, but what I really want it for is to make the background cardstock that I've been making cards with more interesting looking. That Sizzix should be able to handle it, right?
Cool. M's here I come this afternoon. Man, I have got to stay off this website. Finding out about all these cool products is really damaging to my pocketbook.
totally agree! This site is the reason I have a cricut and am building a scrap area (need places to store it all)... and that I am hoping to add a grand caliber, BIA, and ATG ...among all the little things... by this summer.
I have the Cuttlebug, its really cool. Got the special on HSN for $100 and it came with "26" embossing folders. They must have wanted to get rid of them because I went back on the site and there were no more of those specials left. I have used the Cuttlebug a few times and since the folders are quite cheap, it doesnt make such a dent in my pocketbook. I also found that I can use "Darice" folders too. They have some cute one.
