My Love Affair With the Teresa Collins Craftwell eBosser

Christmas 2013, I spoiled myself and purchased the Teresa Collins Craftwell eBosser.  I say spoiled because I already owned a Spellbinders Grand Calibur and a Provo Craft Cuttlebug, both of which I LOVED LOVED LOVED.  So, the addition of an eBosser was really being a bit of a scrapbooking-papercrafting-aholic thing.  When I purchased my new toy on Black Friday my dear hubby, asked which toy I would be giving up since I did not have the space for an additional item..... to which I told him none.  Fast forward almost a year, I have sold both my Grand Calibur and my Cuttlebug - after getting the eBosser, both sat unused.  Now, if you follow my blog at all, you will know that I gave a review of the Grand Calibur and my love for that particular machine.  And everything in that is true, however, the eBosser has managed to take a good thing and make it awesome-sauce good.  Why?  Well, the eBosser has all the awesome features of the Grand Calibur IN ADDITION to being able to use Steel Rule Dies - AND the WRMK/Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress.  So here are the reasons/lists of things I love about the eBosser.

1.  8.5x12 platform, with 8.5x12 embossing folders available
2.  Compatible with ALL industry dies and embossing folders including Sizzix Originals, AccuCut, Spellbinders, Wafer Dies, etc.
3.  Has an automatic reject feature - if your sandwich is too large it will automatically reverse and spit the sandwich back out....
4.  Electronic - after 17 years of playing the Piano, my wrists begin to hurt with a lot of cranking.
5.  It cuts my Cheerylynn Doily Dies like butter without a lot of rotating and blah blah blah.

There are some potential downsides:
1. A little noisy - small children who are light sleepers may be bothered.
2.  Heavy
3.  Electronic - so if you go to crops, in combination with #2 you may be a little irritated.

  1. Does the grand Excalibur take wafer dies and teresa collins embossing folders? Thanks for the review. I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two machines besides being automatic.
