This was the first class I took but didn't have my iPad so amounting this late. The big news is that they have come out with a new mini embossing die cut machine called the Artisan Xplorer. it is really compact but still able to do all the tricks that a bigger machine can do.
They have also come out with some large and deeply etched embossing plates. We used both the new machine and the embossing plates to decorate a chipboard book.
