      I love my Junior

      Full confession, I didn't buy mine from here: I didn't think sc.com would be carrying the product because they carry many competitors' machines. I bought mine directly from the manufacturer, just before Christmas, and have really enjoyed using it.

      It's really powerful: with the right dies (steel ruled) you can cut almost anything. It also does a beautiful job with 3D embossing folders AND it will cut with even the most annoying thin metal dies. I had a couple of intricate dies that I was about to pitch in the trash before I got this thing: they work just fine with the Gemini and the right "sandwich."

      I didn't go for the larger machine because of space considerations but, if it works as well as the Junior (which I'm sure it does) I'd recommend that size for folks who want to go bigger with their die-cutting and embossing.

    • Love, Love, Love

      I have a Cricut explore machine which I love but it doesn’t cut the intricate cuts that the Gemini does so this was a very good purchase and so excited to have it in my craft room.
      The only negative I have is I’m still trying to figure out the plate configuration, but I’ve only had it for a week.

    • Gemini Jr. is Great!

      I've wanted one of these for quite a while. They've been out of stock and when I got the notice that they were back, I ordered immediately. I love it. It does such a good job of die-cutting. So nice that I no longer need to turn a crank but everything is electric and automatic. This was my last big purchase for my new craft room and I love it.

    • Crafter's Companion - Gemini Jr.

      I am so excited to start using this electric die cutting and embossing machine. I was torn between this and another brand but was not impressed with the other's reviews. I asked my best crafting buddy and she said to definitely get the Gemini Junior.

      I have several craft hobbies and I'm just finishing up one now and will start on making a variety of cards.

      Great machine!

      If you've been using a manual due cutting machine you will love how well the gemini machines work and how clean your cuts will be. Happy to get the junior at such a great price. Shipping was quick and item arrived in perfect condition.

    • Gemini mini

      I ordered this mini to get my Christmas cards started. I know this will help me produce cards faster. I own the larger machine but have not used it yet. I recommend this for anyone who makes greeting cards or quilting.

      Great little machine

      This is a great little machine. I have already become hooked on it. It's so fast and quiet. I love it for using with my embossing folders and dies.

      Gemini Jr

      To be honest, not too crazy about this machine. The only thing I like is that if you were to do a lot of die cutting you don’t have to do it by cracking the machine by hand. Had sizzix for 20 years now, and if I knew iI would have buy the sizzix with the button on the side to do the die cutting, etc. Not loving embossing with it had to replace the embossing plate already.

      Great machine, but plates are horrible

      Needed an electric machine and one to travel with. While this is still heavy, its compact. Cuts great. Quiet enough. My complaint is about the plates - especially the magnetic shim. After heavy use on first day of a weekend crop, the plates were warped (they were turned and flipped after each run through the machine) and the magnetic shim was so warped it was unusable and had cuts in it. Thought I did my sandwich wrong, but followed the manufacturer instructions. I have found help on YouTube and have order different plates and shims. Waiting for those to give it a try again.

      • The machine on our site is compatible with standard US electric outlet voltage. Unfortunately, to our knowledge, there is no battery operated option for the Gemini Junior.

      • I found a website for Crafters Companion for Great Britain and they say the machine cannot be shipped to US and Canada due to voltage requirements. Here is the URL… https://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/crafter-s-companion-gemini-multi-media-machine.html

      • I haven’t received it yet but watched a video on you tube that said it weighed 10 lbs and I think it would be easy to take with you.

    • Is anyone having trouble with the plastic shim warping? I have replaced about 5 of them and haven't found the secret/   By: porsche (30-Dec-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
      • Hi... Yes I do. Warping plates is something we cannot avoid when it comes to die-cutting machine. I got this machine 3 years ago and still use the original plates. I just keep flipping them every time I use them. I washed the plates with warm water plus I soak them a few minute in very warm water (not too hot to touch) with putting heavy object on top of the section that need to be flatten, this will not make the plate perfectly flat but flat enough to continue its life of usage. Also, there are several tricks people share on YouTube how to take care the plates. I hope this answer can help you. Thank you. By: HelenGullett (02-Jan-21) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!
