A Pazzles Inspiration Creative Electronic Die Cutter.
It connects to your computer, similar to a printer, but instead of printing, the Inspiration uses a small blade to die cut your designs. You can cut pre-loaded designs or more importantly can create your own. The Inspiration is capable of cutting much more than just paper and cards, from light plastics to chipboard, fabric to rubber stamp material, thin metal to fun foam. You can even draw, engrave, emboss, distress and pierce using the added tools. And because the Inspiration is computerized, you never have to buy expensive cartridges!

I have used it for cutting shapes from Pelmet Vilene and Lutradur. And also from other surfaces that I have already prepared i.e. metallic effect surfaces (which is foil bonded to Pelmet Vilene and tissue glued on the surface - see Fabulous Surfaces).
Here are a couple of samples of simple shapes that have been cut.
I think that the only advantage the Brother ScanNCut has over this machine is the fact that it is a stand alone machine whereas the Pazzles Inspiration needs a PC/Laptop etc. to run.
It's a great machine with lots of potential - and I do have a very, very good reason for parting with it.
All spare parts are readily available from Amazon and Ebay.
You can also buy a piercing tool, a pen tool and a 12 x 24" cutting mat along with CD images with different shape templates .
I would like £250 or the nearest sensible offer.
Collection or meeting at some point to hand the machine over would be preferable to posting.
