      Anyone seen a contraption that can emboss a 12×12 sheet?  I haven't.  Pisses me off.  Sooooo, I let my DH look over my Cuttlebug and Vagabond and told him what I wanted.  He loves to tinker so I have no doubt he will get the job done for me.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          That's the plan. I can't believe there isn't anything on the market.

            Xyron's Creatopia http://www.scrapbook.com/products/review.php?m=show&sku=xy-3403-36-00 has a few rollers that will emboss a 12×12 sheet, but I'm not as keen on it as I am on my Vagabond. If your hubby comes up with something for it, that would be really cool.

                I only have one set of the 12 embossing rollers, so haven't used it all that much, but the embossing does work really slick with the Creatopia. The trouble is finding the rollers to purchase. (And the cost.) There are a couple http://www.scrapbook.com/videos/?m=view&v=901&c=9&s=32 and they're priced the best I've seen. I didn't like my Creatopia for cutting with dies, but for everything else it's ok, you just need storage room for all the different components. Here's a video that shows how you use the 12 embosser http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ni33wfpsFYY .

                A few years ago, Pink Cricut uploaded a video of embossing with the cricut (sans blade) and it was okay. The Creatopia looks cool, but the pieces are crazy and the expense as well! It would be a great thing to have instead of mostly A2.

                    Lisa, fingers crossed that he can come up with something!!!! I'm guessing that the problem (in unscientific terms) is getting enough pressure in the middle.

                            You Rock Lisa! Thank you sooooo much. It is spendy. But, there is a payment plan.

                            DAMN, out of stock…….

                            The Heartfelt Creations owners have one and they used it to demonstrate the gatefold die. That was when I first discovered there was a 12 inch manual die cutter. I want one too but it's not in the budget at the moment. Be sure to shop it. You might find it cheaper somewhere else! 🙂
