I Upgraded to the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine

Hello friends! I recently upgraded my manual die cutting machine to the Spellbinders Platinum machine. there are a lot of machines on the market and I did my research before I decided on which one to get. I’ll share with you why I chose to go with the Platinum machine.

My craft space is a decent size. Like most rooms though, I only have outlets on the wall and my main workspace is in the middle of the room. So I knew that getting a machine that works with dies that also required electrcity was not going to work. So a machine with a handle was the way to go for me.

My next consideration was space. I love that the platforms on the Spellbinders Platinum fold up to make it compact and easy to store. This is huge for me since I work best when things are in their places and I can easily find them.

The next big selling point for me was the size. I am starting to want to experiment with my dies. To do that, I need a machine that was larger than 6 inches. Most of the dies that I have fit an A2 card size, which is 5.5″ x 4.25″ If I wanted to turn that die at an angle, and then lay my paper straight, I would need more space on the platform to do that. Going with the larger Platinum, as opposed to the Platinum 6, would allow me the room I need to experiment with dies to cut and emboss with them in unexpected ways. I’m excited about what this will allow me to create!

Let me tell you – this machine is a beast! It is not lacking in the weight department. So I will be keeping my old trusty Cuttlebug machine for portability. And of course I will never part with my beloved Cricut machine. But as for daily use in my craft space, I’ll be leaning on this upgrade. I am so looking forward to many years of crafting and creativity with the Spellbiders Platinum die cutting machine.
