I like this machine, but I bought it for embossing, I found the hand crank so very hard to use. Unfortunately this will not emboss Spellbinders or We R Memory Keepers embossing plates. Those happen to be some of my favorites. Otherwise the machine is very nice. For this reason I would not recommend this machine if you like embossing with these brands. Better yet maybe Spellbinders and We R Memory Keepers could look at working on their embossing plates since they are so hard to use in either machine.
Ok, I Just figured this out for We R Memory Keepers and Spellbinder embossing plates. I just used the Green Thin Die Adapter as the bottom of the sandwich with one plate on top. I tested with Nina 100# paper as well as thinner paper. It works!!! I am such a happy camper. The machine shows the red adapter with a two plates to make the sandwich, that does not work with the above mentioned brands.
