Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations! As many of you know one of my passions is to review new exciting machines.Well I have teamed with Crafters Companion to review their new crafting machine, the Gemini Die Cutting & Embossing Machine. All opinions and reviews are my own on this machine.
Last year I reviewed the Craftwell Cut'N'Boss, so as soon as the Gemini Die Cutting Machine was released I was interested in what it could do. It debut at the 2016 CHA show, and promised to deliver HIGH PRESSURE at a fraction of the sound. In this video we will discuss all this machine can do and what my final thoughts are on it, Make sure to look below the video for more information and help support Ken's Kreations by shopping though my links at the bottom of the page.

WHAT IS THE GEMINI?
The Gemini Die Cutting Machine is faster and quieter than other die cutting and embossing machines and has a sleek low-profile design. It has been designed for intricate dies as well as for cutting heavyweight cardstock, vinyl, foil and multiple layers of fabric (depending on the dies used). Using higher pressure than many other machines, the Gemini allows better cutting of elaborate designs. With a large platform size (9" x 12.5"), edge to edge cutting of A4 and US letter size materials is enabled, as well as the versatility to use multiple dies at the same time.
With the unique pause, resume and reverse feature, you can reverse out smaller dies once they are cut (for a quicker pass), as well as being able to have peace of mind if you're concerned you've put an incorrect sandwich combination through - you can simply pause it and reverse it out to check.
