The Journey Grand Die Cutting Machine, is a great crafter’s tool machine, as it both die cuts and embosses. It sports an 8 1/2 inch wide cutting area, which makes it larger than most other die cutting machines, and able to cut many of the larger dies. I love that the larger sizes are accommodated, as not only is it great for card making, but is able to be well used for scrapbooking, and mini albums. The machine comes with the necessary cutting plates, How awesome that it can accept paper that is 8 1/2 by 12. The Journey Grand is made by Spellbinders, and is comparable to the Spellbinder Grand Calibar.
This machine is so easy to use. It has a suction cup built in that can be locked and unlocked to hold it securely to the table. It has a nice built in handle for easy portability. This machine works wonderfully with the Fun Stampers Journey Dies, and with many other dies as well. It does not handle the thicker dies, but most companies provide a compatibility chart on their labels.
Fun Stampers Journey also offers the junior size plates for cutting smaller items. It includes the base plate, embossing plate, cutting plate, and junior embossing mat.
Richard Garay, owner of Fun Stampers Journey, has designed some amazing dies which are available at Fun Stampers Journey. The dies are made by Spellbinders, and many of you may recognize the Celebration Line of dies at Spellbinders, which Richard designed as part of his partnership with Spellbinders. Another area of die design that is very much appreciated by customers, is his creative designing of stamps with dies to match. The dies come in a nice card stock folder.
