So I went to Michaels today with the purpose of getting a Cuttlebug. The only had one kid and it cost too much. I don't need a die cutting system, I only need embossing. Then I saw the Sizzix Texture Boutique - sign said $39.99 - and it rang up for $19.99!!! It normally retails for $49.99. SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's the link so you can see what it is - http://www.sizzix.com/category/Textu...ossing+Machine
I see a lot of new threads, but I can't reply right now. Will have to come back when I have a little more time. I have to wrap up a current project first.
So I opened it up to use it and SOMEONE STOLE THE TEXTURES! The box wasn't sealed, and I didn't notice. The textures are totally missing. I'm PISSED! There was one more there, I'm calling the store to see if they'll hold it for me. I'm so upset, I wanted to use it for my current project. This sucks.

who would do that?? I mean, if you don't have much money scrapbooking isn't the best idea for a hobby as you are always running out of something or needing more pics developed...weird! I mean, there are times where I am DYING to finish a page and don't have the money for a certain piece but I sure as heck wouldn't be swiping it from a store! Now that's a scrapaholic! lol.
I hope you get the FULL kit soon! At least whenever you get it it was a great deal
I called the store, and they said they'd hold one for me. I hope to get there right after dinner.
Sorry that someone stole the textures out of the box. That just sucks! Glad you can exchange it though.

what? Someone stole the textures?? That's sad! I would think we scrapbookers aren't theives, but I guess it takes all kinds. Atleast they are replacing it for you, but what a pain.
Let me know how you like it! I'm really interested in getting one too!

Wow, I was so excited for you when I started reading the post, and then I saw that someone stole the things. That stinks. I hope you get the other one that the store had.
so I get to the store tonight and there is nothing waiting for me there. the manager had no idea about it at all. and they had no more in stock. he said it was a "holiday item".
anyhow, I had him call the next closest Michaels and they had three in stock. one is being held for me and I will get it tomorrow when Natalie is at gymnastics (as her class is about 10 minutes from the store - I'll drop her off and then run over there). sucks that I lost an hour of my life tonight though. DH gave me a hard time for not returning it at the store tonight and then just re-buying it tomorrow. but I didn't even think of that. I was just thinking that I really want this toy!
Oh gosh!!! What a pain all the way around. So sorry. I too am anxious to see it and hear how you like it.
