"Llama Talk About Die-Cutting Machines"

Hello All!

Today we are talking about die-cutting machines.  I hope this helps you decide if you are in the market for one!  I put the pros and cons below.  We are also making a Valentine featuring "Llama Tell You" by Gerta Steiner and dies by an online store I've come to like called Kat Scrappiness!  I hope you will check them out.  All the products are listed below to help you find them!

Here is the card-  There are step-by-step instructions at the YouTube link above.



Now about the die-cutting machines:

There are basically three types:

Manual:  The one most people at least start with...mine is a Sizzix Big Kick, but now they are called Big Shots...uses metal dies.
Electric:  A popular one is the Gemini Jr., a smaller version of the Gemini.  Can do the same things as manual, but no cranking required.



Electronic:  Can be hooked to internet, you can create your own things and choose border widths.  No dies needed.



I would always have both types because the manual/electric types aren't interchangeable with the electronic or vice-versa.




Have a great week!

Gale
