|Happy Cut Open|
Strange no one else seems to have stumbled upon it. But maybe you have and thats why you are here?
I bought mine From Samuel Taylors in Leeds, http://www.clickoncrafts.co.uk/ over the internet, taking a chance I know. However I have NOT been disappointed. It is made by a Belgian company I believe ( Artemio) and in appearance, apart from the colour, is exactly the same as the Joy Trouvaille. Confused? Yes I was too and still am!
However, I am notoriously hard on equipment, ask my poor old Bug, and yet this machine hasnt Broken.
I have cut 350gsm cardstock with Spellbinders, Mirri Card, Tin Foil........yes I have put it through its paces!!
When you buy this from Samuel Taylors make sure you also get the SP Plate which is inculded in the deal. It enables you to use embossing Folders with out any problems, and is included in the package price, so there is no additional outlay for plates and Mats, as all are included in the cost, and I have used 350gsm in the folders with no problem.
So why isnt it wide spread? No idea, but I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Cheap,
no additional outlay for plates, and does the job perfectly, doesnt weigh much more than the old Bug, and isnt that horrible Fake skin colour.
I love it, its flat top means you can put the plates on top while making your sandwich, the extending sides, on both sides, mean you dont have to support or catch the plates while it goes through, and it folds away brilliantly. All in all one of my desert island choices. I wouldnt be with out it!!!
