Ok, I'm new to card making and took a hiatus from scrapbooking for about 6 years. I do own some lasting impressions, but I don't own a cuttlebug. So is this the only machine like this or is there a competitor? I love the dry embossing techniques and this today makes me want to go out and buy one today! Any comments would be appreciated for an old crafter just beginning life again due to an empty nest.
