Hello everyone.
I was wondering if anyone could give me info on your story. I got my email from cricut and they have a bundle i was wondering if this was a good deal? Its 34.99
Bundle includes:
12" book binder/laminator machine
paper trimmer
4" X 6" binder
8" X 8" binder
8 1/2" X 11" binder
11" X 8 1/2" binder
12" X 12" binder
(12) 4" X 6" laminating pouches
(12) 8 1/2" X 11 1/2" laminating pouches
(4) paper trimmer blades (2 straight, 1 wavy, 1 perforating)
user manual
Do you have to buy album covers separately?If I wanted it to make my own scrapbook albums is this a practical way to do it? Or is it more expensive? Any info you can pass along would be great. Thanks Becky

I have both this Your Story and the smaller one. I've only used them a couple of times but I like what they did. As for the price, I may be wrong but it seems high to me. I would check the price and what you get on HSN and Ebay.HTH.

I have a Yourstory, I've used it a few times for small projects. It's easy to use and works great. I make a lot of book markers & use the Yourstory on them. I dont use it as often as I'd like but I do like it:0)

I had the same question! Thanks for posting it! I did check HSN - they are 10.00 dollars more for the same thing. I am worried if they are going to stop making this - or coming out with something new and I will be stuck with something that I cannot use. Any thoughts? Also, can we get the supplies at Michaels, Joanns or AC Moore? Or are they only available online?
Thanks!
Lauren

I bought it too>>> however Ritz Camera online store and Overstock have them if you ever run out. I havent used mine either! but it seems very easy to use and resonable. Ive also found some on clearance at HL and I was hoping that they dont discontinue the items. Then I was wondering if they did you can still use it as a laminator. But can you use any brand laminator pouches?

I have heard from other posts that you can use other brands of laminating pouches. So far I have only used the ones that came with it. I have also seen you tube videos where people make their own photo books using their paper and hot glue to make the spine glue strip. I have also seen covers on other web sites that work in the YourStory.

[size=7]The smaller machine I was talking about was the Your Story that binds small books but doesn't laminate. I bought it on HSN because it came with a ton of book covers and was cheaper than buying just the covers. Sorry if I confused you... I do that all the time (LOL).[/size

I have the your story, I'm a teacher so I use it to laminate. My daughter did make a book once, I think if you are going to make books or use it to laminate then yes good idea. I don't think the price is bad either.

I have been looking to by the Your story too. You can checkout cricutmachine.com too. Sometimes they have good deals on them -- I've seen them free with cartridge purchase. Just not sure about shipping.

I have been wanting to get this bundle too. I have seen other sites that carry the album covers and such. They also had the big bundle at the special price. I was so tempted to get it, but I found the Cuddlebug on Amazon.com for only $46.54Drool . I've wanted a Cuddlebug forever but the price was always too high. The YourStory will be my next purchase probably next month.BigGrin

i'm sooo jealous. I got one from ACmoore this morning for $40. I misread the ad thought it was $25. So i've been asking around a few sites I belong to about their feelings about machine. It wasn't until now someone here said cricut.com had for 34.99 whichi is cheaper but the s/h makes it $8 more but you also get a lot more stuff with the bundle. THan to have you say got the same thing for 19.99 I'm torn about the whole purchase. It's not a MUST have... trying to decide if I should hold out for a cheaper price.
