I'm tempted but I'm just not using my stuff right now as it is. I'll wait to hear how everyone likes it and wait for sale. I don't want all the dies and whatnot that comes with it. From what I read the foil sheets are toner specific so they don't work with sticky strip, sticky ep, etc.

I ordered mine this afternoon, but did not take the autoship option. I'd like to see how this works with what I do. I have a laser jet printer, so I can print out the black toner page, cut it with my cricut expression machine, and foil away. The price was far less than I expected and for once, I didn't go overboard on a craft day special! I was curious about the foil sheets as a separate item, but didn't yet receive a reply from HSN. We'll just have to wait and see what gets made and posted for interested crafters to view here.
I thought the "MINC" was a specific machine made by Heidi Swapp. I did not realize Anna Griffin had one too. I would prefer the smaller one shown on HSN but unfortunately they do not ship to Canada. Probably a good thing since I really don't "need" it.
Well, my Anna Griffin Minc arrived intact from HSN. I played with it a bit this weekend and can report that while there is a learning curve involving trimming my work, my laser printer and the foil sheet placement, I am happy with the purchase. I thought the true test would be printing out my own embellishments (quotes, wishes, etc) and running them through. I used my digital artwork from Panstoria Artisan 4. I cannot believe how well the quote's lettering was captured on the foil! I will post some attempts later on this site. It is a bit humid here, and the static on foil placement took a bit of wrangling to set straight. My printer is also including some very fine lines (time for a cart replacement, I think) and the foil made its way to that minute toner!. I am very impressed with the quiet functioning of the machine but also watched for the heat it generated. I wound up running things through on my flat top stove which would absorb any heat. If housework gets done for the day, I should upload by tomorrow morning. Diane
I uploaded two pictures of four cards I completed with the Minc machine. They will be in my gallery - ciocidi. They are awaiting approval. The foils defied my efforts at photography!!! Too much shine! Diane
