I wanted a cutter for the boxes and other items I make from card stock and vellum, and I wanted to be able to cut any design I might come up with. I also wanted to be able to score fold lines. When I read in the description that the Pazzles Inspiration cutter could use Illustrator Files and that it had an embossing tool, I knew this was the machine for me.
I have had my Inspiration for almost a month now and I must say that it has done everything I had hoped it would. It is noisy, but that's a small price to pay for being able to do all the things I had to do so laboriously by hand before. I am now free to concentrate on the designing end of things.
I think this is a great machine for the price, and Scrapbook.com has the BEST price!
I have had the Pazzles Cutter for about 4 months now, and I love it! I am not limited to cartridges that I have to regularly buy, and I can use all True Type fonts that are on my computer, including dingbats. There are hundreds of free clip art images on the Internet that can easily be used. It is super easy to weld letters and images. It is super easy to put an outline around it! This is a fantastic die-cutter, and while it is on the pricey side, it is worth every single penny. You can cut felt, chipboard, vinyl, and they even have stamp stuff so you can cut stamps out. No more expensive letter stickers! Love it, love it, love it!
I'm sooo in Love with my Pazzles!!! I've had it for a little over a week now and I can't stop playing with it. I watched some tutorials online and had no trouble learning how to use the software. I have made more cards, pages, and projects this week than I have so far this year. I am really enjoying this machine. I can't even fathom how I got on without it for so long!
Since I have been a Sillouette user, I thought I would be able to sit down and use the Pazzle immediately. I found that I had to read the instruction manual .duh! I haven't had the time to sit down and really use the machine but I am excited and think it will be great.
