Well, I think things went pretty well yesterday,
The studio looked great and the presenters are professional and brilliant.
Everyone has been so nice, huge thanks for your messages.
I really was holding my breath - it's been quite a few years since I did TV
and it wasn't like riding a bike!
The show yesterday featured the new Spellbinders Platinum machine
and I did receive quite a few questions so hoping I can answer those today.
Here I am with Julian explaining how useful the platform is -
it has all the sandwich information.
Something I forget to mention...you can also use M-Bossabilities in the Platinum,
the double sided folders do not require an adapter plate.
The 3D folders do need an adapter plate which will be available to purchase separately.
On the shelf in the background is some of my samples -
that's Bella in a very flowery frame - I will feature that shortly!
The two cutting plates that come with the Platinum measure 22cm x 15.5 cm.
To use the new Contour steel rule dies you do not need the platform.
Larger plates will be available to use with the Grand dies and the larger Contour steel rule dies.
The machine's overall size -
when the Platinum is closed it is a very similar size to the Grand Calibur.
The weight of the Platinum - 18.5 lb, just over 8kg -
I do get my pounds and kilos mixed up occasionally!
The Craft Channel has the Platinum as an online exclusive,
I believe there is a wait to purchase it elsewhere.
It's definitely worth checking out their Loyalty Club too!
Hopefully that's answered some questions.
I'm afraid I have no involvement with pricing, I'm purely there to demo and..chat a lot!
Today there are two further Spellbinders shows - I'm on at midday and 7pm.
These feature lots of demos and a lovely assortment of dies - think flowers!
I think there will be a few repeat shows too.
Lots of thanks again and take care my dear friends.
