Stampin’ Up! Texture Boutique Embossing Machine Getting a Tune-Up!

I wanted to let you know that Stampin’ Up! has been receiving feedback (including my own) that the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine is giving uneven results for some customers.  They are in contact with the Texture Boutique manufacturer and are actively working with them on a permanent fix for this issue, which will result in a more even emboss with our high definition folders. In the meantime, Stampin’ Up! is turning off this item code on March 8 so it will no longer be available for purchase until the debut of the new annual catalog (June 1).

I’ll announce on my blog (and notify my customers personally) when Stampin’ Up! has finalized a permanent solution with the manufacturer, including what steps need to be taken for a remedy or replacement.  Current “boutique” owners can keep using the machine with less detailed folders until a more permanent solution is available.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience and want you to know that Stampin’ Up! is committed to making this right!

  1. Great suggestion, Rachael. Perhaps SU will come up with something similar, short of having to replace parts or the entire machine! You give me optimism!

  2. Hi Mary! We had the same problem here in NZ with the Texture Boutique. A few of us played around with different shims, and found that a piece of thick acetate used as an additional shim to the recommended “sandwich”, does the trick. It makes it a little harder to wind through, but not difficult. This way, I get an embossed piece comparable to what I get when using the Big Shot. Hope that helps!

  3. Hi Judy: I suggest you wait until the problem with the Texture Boutique is resolved. However, you won’t be able to purchase one until the Annual Catalog comes out, June 1. M

  4. I wanted to get one. Is it best to wait for the new catalog?

  5. The Big Shot ($99.95) does both embossing and die cutting (dies, framelits, etc.). The Texture Boutique ($29.95) is smaller, more portable and is only designed to emboss.

  6. That is a very good question, Jackie. I would like to know also. So happy here in California lots and lots of rain.

  7. Sorry to hear that. it was next on my list of things to buy…..I have a question is this embossing machine like the big shot? If not How different is it from the big shot?
