You are TOO funny, LOL!!
I also have an Epic 6, and generally I like it. I am wondering however, if you know how, when using Spellbinders dies, to die cut AND emboss. I understand the die cutting part, and I can usually see a very faint impression of the embossing, but I must be missing something. I would like to get a much more pronounced look with the embossing that is supposed to be possible with the die (s). Any ideas or suggestions you have would be great.
As for the great debate, I think I will always use a manual machine. I also really like the "hands on" process, and do not want to have to make room for yet another (probably large and heavy) machine. I also love all of the embossing folders available. And I agree with those of you that say you don't save money by using one machine versus the other.
