I bought this for my 5 year old daughter to use for cardmaking. She loves to help me with scrapbooking and often times the tools are too hard for her to use which results in my taking all my time helping her rather than us both being able to work on our own stuff. This is super cute, I showed her once and then went on to do other things...came back and she had figured out how to use it all by herself, layer different styles etc.. It is a very cute machine that is super easy to use
I have spent months comparing machines to die cut, emboss etc. etc. I didnt want to wind up wiht a room full of machines that all do the same thing. This CUTE embossing machine is fantastic, its small, affordable and fills in the gap the cricut left me with!!!! I am so happy with it. I plan on purchasing it for my crafty friends!!!!!!!!!
I already have Sizzix die cutting machines, but wanted a simple embosser. This is lightweight and handles several brands of small embossing folders. I liked the "extras" in the kit. Plus the thing is so darned cute!
