OK I got a chance to use the texture boutique at A's and I love it. But is there anything I should know good/bad before I purchase one? I already have a silhouette so I don't need/want a die cutter, I just want the embossing feature.

Thanks

I think it is a good value, except you will only be able to use an A2 sized embossing folder for it, and you won't have as much freedom for orientation of your embossing if you want to only do it partially as if you had a big shot or cuttlebug.

I went with the cuttlebug, but may have just done the texture boutique if I had also had an electronic cutter.

They used to have a version on amazon that came with several embossing folders...

You will be much happier with a Big Shot/Big Kick. The TB does not emboss very deeply. You have to add shims to get a decent impression and even then it can be sketchy - IMO.

I have a texture boutique and it embosses deeper and crisper than 2 of my friends cuttlebugs. That is according to them I love it and I can do up to a 5x7 folder. You do not have as many options as a big shot but I picked mine up at m's with a 50% off coupon.

Thanks, I went ahead with the texture boutique. I don't think I will use it enough to justify the cost of a big shot because I have my silhouette and only want to do textures.

Hubby is wrapping it and putting it under the tree so I don't get to play with it yet

I also have a Silhouette, the Sd. and a Texture Boutique. I love it. you are a little restricted in the size of embossing folders, but it has not bothered me yet.
And mine embosses very well, I don't have issues with them not showing up at all. I have never used any extra shims other than what the TB comes with.
