I make bracelets, necklaces, charms, pins, keychains & earrings. My DH has done a watch. I don't have a gallery here.

I have several machines but a lot of them are packed away right now. I like having two different manual machines. I work with fabric a lot so I keep a manual machine just for my fabric work so my fabrics stay clean. Since I work with a lot of messy mediums I don't want to use a die cutter that I just ran a paint project through. Even my die cutter I use for messy projects is super clean. I am probably being overzealous. A lot of my fabric is expensive like silk. I have a Big Shot & Cuttlebug. Some of my friends have two different machines because they take one too crops and the other stays in their craft area.

I process metal for my resin pieces using the Cuttlebug. I am wondering what the Artisan does differently? It would be nice to use deeper bevels for resin pieces. The opening on the Artisan looks so small. Resin artists usually work with several pieces at once. I wonder how many bevels each die will contain. I guess I will have to see the machine in person before I am sold on it. I just sound like little Miss Grumpy. I don't mean too. I have an earache. I want the Artisan to be a hit for Spellbinders.
