TC Stampmaker Q & A

We've had a lot of questions regarding Teresa Collin's new Stampmaker machine. So, in order to help answer some of these questions, we're posting Teresa Collin's own Q&A video:

We hope this helps answer some of your questions!

Attention all STAMPERS!

We need your crafty opinion! 

Have you heard about the new Teresa Collins Stampmaker machine?

This is how she describes it on her blog: 
It creates clear photo polymer stamps. They are just like the Teresa Collins stamps that you can purchase from my lines. The packets of polymer are pink until you put them in the machine and then your stamps will be CLEAR. You can create AMAZING detailed quality clear stamps, embossing dies and stencils ALL with the TC STAMPMAKER. The kit includes EVERYTHING you need. You have no mixing or anything... it's literally a 5 minute process to CREATE a stamp. I cannot believe how EASY it is. You can order MORE supplies as needed- I offer refill packages of the film, photo polymer, etc.

If you'd like to see it in action, please take a moment to review this demo video, then let us know if this is something you would be interested in purchasing. The suggested retail price is $169.99.
