I am happy to now own a Crossover II die cutting machine. Thanks to Maker’s Movement for providing me with the machine and a variety of tools and dies. I will be posting tutorials each month here on Try it – Like it – Create it using the Crossover II. My main reason for wanting the machine was that the die cutting machine I was using is no longer being made so it was difficult to continue to show it in tutorials and videos. While at Creativation this year, I searched for a die cutting machine that could replace my old machine. Speaking with designer friends as well as PMA (the makers of the Crossover II) I was thankful to find out that we could work together.
A few things I find really great about the Crossover II:
- It is a sturdy machine.
- The rollers are made from steel, adding to the weight and longevity of the machine.
- You can adjust the distance between the rollers with the use of an easy dial.
- You can use a variety of different brands of dies in the Crossover II.
- The machine folds up for storage, saving space.
- The plates don’t warp. (but you can buy extras if needed)
- Crossover II has a large variety of materials it can cut.
- The Crossover II can cut an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper. (no need to trim down your paper)
