I have been hesitating to buy myself an embossing-type tool. I was afraid that getting a one-trick-pony wouldn't be worth it. I finally caved since this tool wasn't that pricy, and I couldn't be happier! Not only is this tool the easiest tool I've ever used (honestly, you don't even have to read the instructions), but the results are beautiful and look like you spent serious time on the design (instead of the 10 seconds it took you to turn the crank). I can't help but grin like a school girl as I turn the crank and watch an amazingly perfect product come out of this tool every time! Definitely worth the money to add a bit of unexpected texture to your every day scrapbooking and card-making tool kit.
I had this delivered to my office and just couldn't wait to get home and play. In fact, I opened the package on my lunch hour and tried it out.
WOW ... this is awesome!! So easy, so quick, and great finished product. Even my co-worker (whose not into scrapping/card making) was impressed.
This is perfect for card making. I have a Silohuette SD and was looking for an inexpensive embossing machine. I found it and I'm in heaven!!!!
I love the Texture Boutigue Embossing Machine, my only disappointment is that there isn't enough designs for this size machine. I've been looking for more designs and everything I like is for one of the bigger models which I'm just not able to afford. I love the flower, it's adoreable. Maybe a butterfly, an angel, flower buddles. But I do love my machine and the machine itself is so cute looking like a purse...lol. Great job
This is my first purchase of any type of machine for my scrapbooking and card making. I absolutely love it. I would spend hours on my light box with my stylist and my brass stencils to get the same affect that I get in seconds. I recommend this tool for anyone who makes cards and want a little more umpf to their cards or scrapbooking.
The minute I placed my order I couldn't wait for this to arrive...and I wasn't disappointed. I had it out of the box and working the same day it arrived. It's easy to use and you get dramatic, textured papers that you can use on cards and scrapbook pages. You won't be disappointed with this little baby.

I already had a Cricut and didn't want to spend the money to buy something that cut and embossed, so this was the perfect solution. I love how easy it is to use and the many embossing folders that are available (I even use Cuttlebug folders!)

I love, love, love, this embossing machine. It makes cardmaking so much easier. The results are beautiful. I bought this because I have a Cricut and wanted to emboss. It's a good quality machine, and it's CUTE!
This is such a wonderfully easy and convenient tool that EVERYONE should have. It is perfect for cardmakers and ATCs. Although it is a little small for 12x12 scrapbook pages, it CAN be maneuvered to make some fantastic mats, borders, and pretty much whatever you want, with a little ingenuity and effort. I look forward to making all sorts of fun and textured pages! (One caveat, the pack of color core papers, at least in my kit, was not color core. The picture shows them having very different interior colors that come out in the sanding, but every single piece in my pack had just a muted version of the original color, so not excitement there.)
I HAVE ONLY USED MY NEW SIZZIX TEXTURE BOUTIQUE TWICE AND I AM PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AND MY SHOPPING CART AND WISH LIST ARE BOTH FULL WITH MORE SIZZIX EMBOSSING FOLDERS. MY ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT IS WITH THE SIZE OF THE FOLDERS AND THE SIZE OF CARDS I CAN MAKE WITH THEM AS I USUALLY MAKE "7 X"5 IN. CARDS. I'M SURE THERE IS A REMEDY OR LARGER FOLDERS AVAILABLE - I HOPE! - I JUST HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO PERUSE THE POSSIBILITIES. THE SIZZIX TEXTURE BOUTIQUE WAS A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR MYSELF AND SO FAR I AM HAPPY WITH MY "GIFT"! SINCERELY, TINA GARCIA, NV.
This is a fun little machine, I now what the Big Shot to complement it. I do need to get more of the embossing peace's though there was not to many of them, some small insects or bird designs would have been nice, but I can order those in time.
When received the box the machine was in was very damaged and fell apart when I took the machine out of it. I wad also missing the screw to attach the handle. But besides that the machine works great.
Am happy with purchase and it does a good job embossing the smaller embossing folders but doesn't seem to really detail the larger embossing folders. I am still happy with it.
I use 8 1/2 x 11 card stock and this machine would not fit my paper and even if I used the larger machine the embossing plastic textures would not work again with the paper and making it not able to place the designs on the paper from top to bottom.
If you use smaller paper this would be a great machine
When it said 91 piece beginners kit I expected to have several
embossing plated out of the 91 pieces -- NO -- 3 only - I normal
size - 1 half that size and 1 about 1/4 size.
All the balance was paper and card
I need a simple machine to do embossing on my craft bags for packing. I haven't used use it yet so I can't rate its function or quality. It is however, a nice bundle. I rate *** for the bundle.
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.
hi i just got mine about a week ago and love it, i can;t wait to get more embossing plates for mine you know you can;t have too many.
i already started to make some cards with it and order more plates from the supper store can't wait till hey get here.
i have a cuddle bug but this seems easier to use,
give it a try you won;t be sorry!
happy new year.
I already have a MM Slice and a Cricut but I wanted to emboss and did not need another die cut machine. I bought this machine in March and was not disappointed. I have actually bought more Cuttlebug folders than the Sizzix ones because they are cheaper.
This Machine is so easy to us and ask quick as I can need a card, I can make it special with the embossing machine. Just needs more folders to extend the usage.
I got a great buy and will gft it to others.
