Whoo Hoo, V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N !


We are on vacation and today is our 2nd day in Walt Disney World.

So what did I buy today?



A handheld embosser set with three interchangeable cassettes!

It reminds me of the Fiskars handheld punch sets but this set embosses instead.


The $20.95 price tag is pretty steep for something that looks and feels like cheap plastic (Made in Taiwan!) but I was intrigued and couldn't stop looking at the back of the packaging.


Hubby got impatient and decided that it was worth paying that $21 just to get me out of the store. :-P

As soon as I got back to the hotel room, I tried the embosser on a mini paper pad and the impressions were too deep and the outlines had wrinkles but when I tried it on the room service order menu (cardstock!), the embossing turned out so much better.



I've never seen this set in any of the local craft stores but I could have sworn that I've seen it in the Disney Store's website. Of course I can't find it online now but I wonder if the Disney Store (brick and mortar) might sell it?

  2. Very nice embosser! I love the shapes : ).

    I found a lot of scrapbooking stuff at one of the big stores in Epcot, papers, punches, embellishments. It was a couple of years ago though.

    Take lots of pictures, and I hope your vacation is wonderful :D.

  5. Thanks, Joy! I just got back and I think I can make something with this and the embossing folders that I got from Big Lots. I'll work on that once I'm done with this mountain of vacation laundry.
