Introducing the Diamond Press

Well folks – I’m typing this while sitting here on the plane on my way to Tampa (Florida) to HSN ready to launch our new machine – the Diamond Press on HSN on Monday evening!

You are going to LOVE it when you see it! In a nutshell, it’s a mini (and I mean truly mini!) die cutting and embossing machine. It’s so small it can fit into your handbag (or craft tote) and it’s super easy to use! It doesn’t have any ‘plates’ like a regular die cutting machine does, instead you cut inside a folder (like an embossing folder) so you literally pop your card/paper over the die and into the folder and in just 3 simple turns of the handle it’s cut!

The cutting area is just shy on 2 inches wide, and the machine comes with 2 different length cutting folders. We also have a fabulous collection of dies and embossing folders that go with it.

UK friends – I know you’re going to be devastated that it’s launching over in the States first, but we’ll be getting our UK shipment landing in a few weeks (watch this space for details of when, plus if you see below I’m giving you the chance to win one of 5 kits so you’ll be amongst the first in the world to own one!)

US friends – oh…. My…… word……. You HAVE to tune in to HSN on Monday evening for the launch – I know it’s at midnight EST and that’s super late for you east-coast folks, but trust me it will be worth it! You can’t afford to miss out on the deal that HSN are offering!

Not only do you get the machine and the special cutting folders, but you also get dies and embossing folders included in the kit too! And I can’t tell you yet what the price is going to be, but basically whatever you think it should cost you can HALF it!

For anyone new to the world of die cutting, then this is absolutely the most affordable way to give it a go! And for all the rest of us die-cutting-die-hard enthusiasts, then you just have to have one of these because they are so portable, lightweight and convenient!

I’ve had one now for about 2 months and I can tell you I look back now and I don’t know how I managed before I had it! It’s so convenient for the little cuts (like our mini word dies) and if you treat yourself to the nesting dies that work alongside it, and the alphabets then it’s perfect for personalisation!

Here’s a sneaky peak at some of the amazing samples the team have done for me to show on the launch…..

And as promised, I’ve had 5 of the HSN launch kits shipped to our UK office to be able to give away to my UK friends. If you’d like to be in with a chance of being one of the lucky winners, then all you need to do is leave a comment below about why you would like one of these machines and I’ll pick 5 winners at random on Friday this week and post them on here!

US friends – I’m also doing a giveaway of 5 machines over on our US facebook page – click here to go and enter!

Watch this space for more details! Signing off from up above the pond! Sara xxx

    I would love to win one of these new fancy machines, I have just got back into crafting after a few years break and think this looks great for the smaller every day cards I make for charity.

    Wow such a sweet but useful machine, just right for all the very small dies that get lost on the big machines.

    As newbie to embossing and die cutting, I'm enjoying using my Cut 'n' Boss but sometimes I just want something small. This would be ideal!

    apart from saving me haveing to lift out bigger machines, I could sit with it on a table and run lots of thing through it while watching T.V. but the most important part for me is it comes in purple

    I would love one of these because i have space in my handbag!

    That and its just really cute and the nearest I'm likely to ever get to a real diamond ever again

    And I'm sure it would be so much more convenient for cuttong teeeny tiny dies than ot is to get a big machine out

    I already have the embosser which I love but it is very heavy to take with me to crops etc. I have been tempted to go for a smaller machine but have not come across a small and portable one I like. This one would be perfect. Thank you, Liz x

    WOW! Just what I need. It could sit on my desk and would certainly be my go to machine as I do so much on a small scale. I could also take it along to my weekly craft club where I help a group of eldery ladies. So simple yet the results would be professional.

    Wow! This looks so handy for all those little "last minute" extra embellishments and finishing touches for a project - PLUS it will be amazingly useful in using up those little scraps of cardstock in your stash - you know....the ones you hang on to "just in case" - Well now you will be able to use them all up!

    Looks like a very useful machine to have for those small dies & sentiments. Also good to use when crafting with the grandchildren.

    This machine looks so cute and so handy for all those small things we think twice about cutting when we have to get a big machine out. Cant wait for it to land in UK! (My favourite is purple too) ;)

    Sarah, you have done it again. I love it youalways manage to come up with something a little bit different. As they say in USA. AWESOME.

    Reply
  • Yvonne Bruce

    I work with older people and think they would be able to use this independently. They would be able to create their own embellishments rather than relying on me doing this for them (with my large machine) , thus increasing their sense of achievement.

    I so want one of these for my other half!! He likes 'helping' with the little dies!

    So dinky! I am quite new to crafting and I'm building my collection up and this would make a lovely addition to it! Along with the ultimate pro and sweet treats stuff which I plan to buy this week as soon as I get paid!! Ha ha xx

    Wow, this I need ..... now.
    Perfect size to take to uni with me for labelling my artwork and tags for folder inserts, perfect size to sit on the table and make little labels instead of having to run a tiny die through a big machine when making sentiment tags and absolutely the perfect size for all the tiny dies and embossing folders you dont use because it's to much effort to use said large machine. Will even fit in my handbag ❤️

    this will be great to take to card making classes, then I don't have to queue for the larger die cutting machines when I only want a tiny die cut!!!

  • Kerri-Ann Briggs

    I love the idea of a mini die cutting machine! How handy would it be for me to keep on my work desk & show customers simple die cutting without bringing out my big demo die cutter. I can also imagine me bringing it home to sit on the sofa with a lap tray experimenting with different dies & papers!
    What thickness / materials will it cut? Vellum, card, gliitercard?
    Look forward to more info soon!

    I would love one of these machines as they are so portable. It would be perfect to take on holiday so I don't get withdrawal symptoms whilst I am away for home. Perfect for cutting out small dies like alphabets and labels which take so much more time in a large machine.

  • Mary Olaman

    Oh my word! How cute are they and such really attractive colours too, especially when a girl needs to be colour coordinated! Whoever designed this saw a whole in the market, it's just what we crafters need, I would love to own one xx

    Love that it is so portable.Have a big die cut machine and when you are cutting little things it is easy to mis place tiny dies when moving the big cutting plates.So handy to take with you to crops and crafty awaw days x

    I love it especially because it's portable I would be able to take it when I look after my Grandchildren, it will be so easy for them to use, I would be able to use this instead of my electric machine to save me so much time for small dies and I can see there is a purple one too even better.
