So, I'm pretty fascinated with embossing (the stick paper in an embossing folder kind) and I also find myself pretty interested in the spellbinder shapes. What sort of machine does one get for these? Is there anything that does it all? I admit to being confuzed
My Mom has a big shot and likes it. She uses it with Spellbinders dies.
I had a actual Spellbinders machine for a few years (the ratchet mechanism finally broke). It has great squeezing power and embosses beautifully. But, I found it awkward to use. You have to feed it from behind and there is no platform to set things on - you have to hold the plates together as you feed it in. They have a new one now so maybe its better.
I have the spellbinderd wizard and i totally love it. When the handle breaks just email the company and you get a new one What I especially love about the wizard is that it is NO PLASTIC as I used to have a zipemate one of the earlier embossing/die cuting machines and so much broke on that thing and in compare to the other machines the wizard is alot sturdier? is that the right word hahaha and you can get these now on the second hand market for a really good prize as I paid 30 euro's for the one i got for my MIL. and you have to get used to how the crank works that is for sure but it also takes up much less muscle power which I find important with artritus and cts
