That’s right! You don’t need to wait any longer.  If you missed out on the first batch of machines, a second delivery is arriving today and will be available in store tomorrow.  
Get one now and have a play so you can take advantage of all the free demonstrations at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo with some hands on understanding of the machine first.  
It’s much easier to pick up locally than carry around at the show and you will get our bonus offer of 4 free rolls of foil which means you will have 6 rolls with your machine to start playing straight away.  
You can also check out the classes at the show using the machine.   
Kerrie Gurney, Tracey Cooley and Anita Enright will all be conducting classes featuring the machine and the new Ultimate Crafts Ritz collection.

 This classic Happy Birthday hot foil stamp is from the Anna Griffin / Couture Creations range.
