I have owned this now for about three months, and I absolutely love it. If you are looking for a machine for primarily embossing purposes, this is a winner. The cuttlebug folders work great in this machine also. The embossing folders are great; there is a nice variety of beautiful embossing folders to select from, and you can incorporate folders for the cuddlebug. It is a cute little item too.....really artsy looking.....and the price for this hot little item is excellent when compared to other embossing machines on the market.
