I love the way our stamped images look cut out, but I don’t always love to cut them out with scissors. Hand cutting it with scissors can take so much time. One of my favorite tools that I use ALL the time is our die cut machine. And even better, we have two different machines to choose from.
We have our full size machine, perfect for die cutting, embossing, etc. And, we have a brand new Mini machine. The Mini machine looks just like the full size machine but smaller. The large machine has a 6″ wide base. The Mini machine has a 3.5″ wide base. Plus both machines fold up for storage or portability.
One more great feature of our die cut machine is that it fits our old thinker Sizzix dies. I love that! I still use those old dies in my crafting and I’m so glad our new machine fits them.
And if you happened to notice that bit of red washiest tape stuck to the top of the machine, that’s my secret weapon for getting a perfect die cut. When I stamp the image, I’ll use a small bit of washi to hold the die in place while I run it through the machine. The piece of washiest will last me a couple runs through the machine and then I get a new piece of washi tape out.
