Hi

I posted this in General Chat but have had no luck getting any information.

I am wondering if anyone has or has seen and used the Spellbinder Grand Calibur Embossing Machine.

Here is the link to where I saw it. http://www.ohmycrafts.co...nders-grandcalibur.aspx

I really think I want this Blushing Blushing but don't want to spend the money if it is not worth it or if there is something better out there that I am unaware of. I want to be able to embose on larger surfaces and use bigger dies that are on the market that do not fit in the Cuttlebug (which I own).

Any information would be appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Diane

OH I want one sooo bad. I thought I saw someone here say that Hobby Lobby had them and could use a coupon. That would be awesome for me. But would have to drive an hour one way for my closest HL. Hate to drive all that way and mine not have it. I guess I could call LOL LOL my luck I speak to someone who didn't know the difference between this one and the older model.

I don't have one. I probably won't get one since I don't have a need for it. I have seen it at Hobby Lobby. I have seen You Tube videos about it. I just wanted to BTT this for you so Nilda could see it or somebody else that has bought one.

Okay, so thanks to you (shame on you!!lol) I faked sick at work and went to Hobby lobby, used my 40% off coupon and lugged it home!! All I can tel you right now is the box is heavy and my hobby lobby stores only have one each, the sales lady said they only purchase them one at a time unless it becomes really popular.I had been looking for a larger embossing machine because I prefer to make cards using the 8 1/2 by 11 card stock. Oh by the way, I really am sickRazz, just not as sick as I made it appear!! Hee hee!!

I do have the Grand Calibur... love it.. just the right size... I can never see myself purchasing any embossing machine that is larger. The Grand Calibur takes paper 8x1/2 x 11. here if my first video so you can see what it looks like .


I bought mine from scrapmart.com for 97.49 and free shipping.

I got mine a few weeks ago from Terri at Stamps Alive.......... I love it.......... the embossing and cuts are very crisp and deep. The grand dies coordinate with the smaller nesties sets. I have used it daily for the pastt few weeks! I consider it a must have:

Here is Terri's Price and website, it is the very best price I found and her customer service IS A+

I was wondering if you could help me. I bought the grand calibur because I was looking for a larger embosser:however, I can't emboss using my cuttlebug folders as it says. It tears through the paper or want role through. I tried opening the folders and laying them out flat, still would not go through the machine. I don't want to break it. Any ideas? How do you emboss?

I love the Calibur. I had been using my Big Kick for Spellbinders, and it works great, but the emboss with the Calibur is fabulous.

I also have a Big Shot Pro, which will accommodate the Grand dies made for the Calibur, but it's a huge machine. The Calibur is much smaller and easier to use with the Grand dies (and all wafer-thin dies).

this is the suggested sandwich for the cuttlebug folders.

Start with the A Base Plate on the bottom. Place the folder with cardstock on top of the A Base Plate and cover with the Tan Embossing Mat then the W-025 Sizzix Original Mat. Insert into the front of the Grand Calibur. Turn the handle and the sandwich exits at the back of the machine.

I guess I'm going to see to see a video. I tried what you said and it tore my paper and was very hard to turn. Do you know where i can see a video using the cuttlebugs folders? I have founf videos on everything about the grand calbur except that. I got so frustrated, I boxed it up to take back to the store.
