I haven’t had much time alone in the spare room to craft much lately, but I realized I hadn’t posted about my newest treat. My husband let me buy an embossing machine as my valentine’s day gift 🙂
I bought the Sizzix Texture Boutique starter kit, and it was $32 on Amazon, and came with a bunch of stuff, cards included and cardstock. I did SO much research, and was almost leaning towards the Cricut Cuttlebug but then I realized I probably wasn’t going to be doing embossing on anything bigger/wider than 5″ since what I really like is cards, and also this machine was half the price! For $40 I ended up getting 2 extra embossing folders (cuttlebug folders I’d been eyeing for a WHILE), and they fit just perfectly. It even fits a 5×7 Folder which I’ve already used to make envelopes and I love, because that’s probably the biggest size I’ll be doing.
Anyway, here are some pics of the new toy and a few things I’ve done with it. 🙂 The envelopes are for an invitation we made.
