you did lots of research, thanks. in my mind this is what i think i want it to do. i am not even sure i know what they are capable of doing. i do not like to stamp and then try to get the die to match up, never does it to my liking, so i would like something to cut out a "stamped" image. either one my my stamps that i scanned or a purchased file. didnt realize they could emboss, edges? or like what happens when you use and embossing folder. i like chipboard, so i guess something that cuts that would be a plus. do they score? i see how this could be useful for lettering and being able to size it to whatever size you need.
are there good you tube videos out there? is there a site to go to that showcases some projects? do i need this? because they are pricey and unlike a treadmill you cant use it as a coat rack (really i use my treadmill, but my weight machine, i use to hang dry delicates) pazzles has a pretty good deal with a subscription or is it. uuuuugggggghhhhh.
