Updated - there are now some fantastic videos on You Tube which demo this machine - have a look
I stumbled upon this news earlier this year when looking for die cutting plates in A4 size which are clear, and found just what I need on the Once Upon a Stamp Website.
Update 08/08/2013 - my machine arrived, went for the vintage colour and I absolutely love it. I see there are lots more videos to help new users posted on you tube in the last few days, so make sure to take a peek. First observations is the machine is good and heavy and strong and the plastic casing is not flimsy and nor is the handle and only two plates woohoo. the thickness of the clear cutting plate is decent thickness so I guess it shouldnt warp as quickly as other brands' cutting plates will.. Will post any updates as and when I have them.
This machine will make my partial embossing technique so much easier :) and I will be able to position and partially emboss smaller folders on larger sheets of card much easier too.
