This product is one of the mainstays of my arsenal of fun tools for paper projects and scrapping. The embossing dies that are available for use in this tool really provide great opportunities for adding more pow to your layouts and paper projects. One of the fun uses of this is to take an ordinary die cut, even the commercially available ones in the shops, and put it through the machine with a "goosebump" embossing die. You get instant dimension without all the rubbing or hand-embossing. The Revolution comes with its own case that makes it well protected if you take it to a crop.
