This system is so much fun to work with. It is unique and different from a foil machine, as it allows you to work with so many types of materials. I created beautifully foiled Christmas cards, but my favorite way to use the Glimmer Hot Foil machine is to emboss napkins with foil sentiments. They look like they were purchased at a fancy store! I cannot wait to work with other materials-it also works with things like leather, wood grain paper, velvet paper...make sure you own a manual die cutting machine as this is an accessory to be used with one.
I saw the 2 videos available here before I went ahead and purchased this system because I, too, have a Vagabond plus I have Minc system. I love my Minc, but the Minc foils only work on laser printed images. Glimmer foils are heat-set. I bought this system because it is much simpler and it has lovely dies for my son's wedding. Everything works as promised and I had a great deal of fun trying each and every die. I did not use a heavy cardstock because of the warning and I can see why rolling it thru my Vagabond would be too tight and cause issues with the foil. I also trimmed the foil as closely as I could. Everything worked fine for me and my foils worked perfectly! And I was very pleased that Scrapbook.com was the only store that had this system and was selling it prior to the 10/1 release date! One caveat: Although the demonstrators casually mention that they don't know if it's hot enuff to burn you, IT IS HOT ENUFF TO BURN YOU! Use the tools and you'll be fine!
I love using my Glimmer Hot Foil System. It is so easy to use and you get absolutely beautiful results. It is smaller than I thought which is good because it doesn't take up much counter space. I love that I foil from this machine then take it straight to my Sizzix machine. I was able to use other Dies with the Glimmer System (some work, some don't). You just have to play around with Dies to see which ones work. I bought the Glimmer System on sale and I'm really happy with it. It is worth buying.
First time ever trying out a machine like this and I have to say I absolutely love it! It's pretty, light weight, compact and easy to use. It has everything you need to play with it right away! Plus
you can use your thin dies to create beautiful details on your projects and the additional plates are budget friendly too! A note: The key to great transfers every time is running it through your Platinum 6 very slowly, this way it transfers evenly:)
Like the glimmer machine, it doesn't work as well as the video show it. I have tried several cards that the foil sticks on which damage the complete top layer of the card. I will say that the larger dies work wonderfully. I would recommend but not for smaller dies.
This Hot foil system is so easy to use and you get beautiful results every time. I love that you can foil a sentiment on your projects just by doing a few steps. You can even emboss using this system. Other systems only foil if it’s printed with a laser printer, which is kind of a hassle for me. But this system totally removes that step, the less steps I have to do the better. The size is perfect, I can just slide it into my Alex drawers and it’s out of the way.
Great little machine that adds a beautiful foil touch to my projects. I totally recommend it.

Love this machine, I bought a TODO earlier this summer and wasn't impressed. this glimmer and the spellbinder stamps are wonderful, they work every time one pass with my cut'n'boss, I have already made some amazing cards...I love the non-skid plate, the stamps stay where you put . Can't say enough good things about this product....Scrapbook.com was so prompt in getting my order in the mail,I will order from them again for sure!! Have a great day!!
This machine works great. The timer is a great plus . I’ve only used it a short , but my cards came out beautiful. You must cut the foil close to the die. The extra foil sometimes sticks to the cardstock. The machine does take up space but it is worth it. This machine is so much better than the other machine that needs the special black paper. I give this machine 5 stars.
I am obsessed with the Glimmer Hot Foil System! The look of foil on colored cardstock just never grows old. I cannot wait to hand make my Christmas cards this year with foil accents. It blows me away just how easy the system is. I need all the foil and hot foil plates!! Happy to report "hot" is really just rather warm, not burning temps!
I just love my new Glimmer Hot Foil System. It works like a charm and I can have beautiful cards made PDQ! Everything you need is included and it doesn't take much room.
