Unboxing and First Impression of the Dream Cut Machine andddd a Surprise!

Sooo, Hello again

And lets get started, because it is going to be an insanely long post to read and watch!! Hehe Yes..I have got two videos lined up for you today! and some surprises in the end!

So Rashmi Harish, owner of Itsy Bitsy calls me up and asks, Have you seen our latest release? Would you like to try out one for a review.. I have to admit, I had no idea what she was talking about.
Because, during the release, I was abroad on vacation and kept off social media (well, almost did)
When I found out, she was talking about a die cut machine...I was like WHATTT?? Hell yeah! 😍 well not those words, but I was immediately on board to check out the new Dream Cut machine.

It arrived in 3 days, and they generously sent me loads of materials that the machine could cut, so I could try out everything. So I was very excited to check it out and I did an unboxing video. I show everything that comes in the machine, as well as how to assemble it.  You can also watch it on my Youtube Channel in HD here

Then I went to town experimenting and playing with it.
In the descrption box on Youtube, I have listed the time stops, if you want to just watch a particular aspect of the just die cutting or just embossing etc..Do check the description box on the following video on Youtube here

ETA: I ended up cutting the acetate, felt, fabric, and canvas with my Bigz dies, and they cut flawlessly! So you can rest assured, these all these materials can be cut with the Dream Cut and the Bigz dies.

Also let me show you how Dream Cut compares in size to my current die machine, the Cuttlebug. Isn't it cute and compact? I will totally enjoy its addition to my craft room!

Now a little bit of technical specifications

Body is made up of high impact Polymer with smooth edges for easy handling.
1.       The platform & the frame is made of high quality, non – corrosive Alloy.
2.       The cog wheels ( gears ) are made of high speed steel for durability & rough use.
3.       The gear tips are smoothened to give excellent user experience.
4.       The Roller diameter is larger than many other standard machines to increase the point of contact with the cutting die which enables to get a superior cut quality.

5.       Roller mounts are designed to give a bit of cushion which helps in proper pressure distribution on the cutting die.
6.       High precision in the Casting and Assembly of this unit will last a long time compared to other machines.
7.       The cutting plates are made of moulded Acrylic which has self-healing properties compared to Acrylic sheets which are used in other machines.
8.       The Bevelled edges of the cutting plates is a great feature which puts slow pressure on the Rollers and really gives you a Dream Cut experience!
9.   Spare parts  and support from Itsy Bitsy will be made available.

Thank you Team Itsy Bitsy for this amazing machine and an opportunity to review it. I would definitely recommend it to all crafters especially Beginners who want to jump into this awesome hobby of cardmaking and scrapbooking! 

The Dream Cut is available online (remember it comes with free shipping) and can be purchased Here or visit your nearest store.
