My first mini die cutting machine was a Sidekick. It didn't take me long to discover its limitations, particularly the amount of cutting real estate delivered by the plates. This machine is the solution. What it didn't do well, was intricate dies. The smaller the cuts, the more often some were missed. UNTIL I added a metal shim to the sandwich. The shim is an additional purchase - or it was when I purchased my mini blossom die cutting machine. Now it is the perfect mini machine to have sitting on my desk to work my way through embellishment and word dies!
The mini blossom die cutting machine is the perfect addition to my craft space. I love the cutting plates. I just wish the shim was included.
I love it! It makes it so quick to die cut little things without getting out my big machine. I wish I would have purchased it sooner. It cuts beautifully too.
I just got it a few days ago and have used it many times already. It is very easy to use, and the cut outs come out very good. I like it because it is smaller when I have to cut out small items, I don't have to use my bigger machine.
Since I've became a card maker, my supply and tool purchases have began taking over every empty spot. Storage is at a "premium" in my craft room!
But this small die cutting machine sits right on my workspace looking cute and is there doing a great job when I need it. When I need a quick small cut,
its easy to reach for and gets the job done so I can get my card finished. I love my big die cutting machine too, but this little guy makes the process a
lot quicker and easier.
