OK as promised here is my review.
Today I played with it a lot, I went straight across with the distresser and there was a very slight distressed look. Then I held the paper at an angle and noticed a difference, It was better but still not the look I wanted. So I played some more going back and forth, the result was a deeper distressed look. It was equal to my hand distresser without the work. Since I love the really distressed look I had to play around some more, while having the machine pulse while I ran it back and forth quickly. The result, I was in love. Also It wasn't as loud pulsing,It was so fast and just the look I wanted. It took me a while to figure out how to use it (to my liking) But when I did the results were fast and pleasing. Of course this review wouldn't be complete without pictures, I will add those in the morning along with the Pages I finished a lot faster thanks to my distrezz-it-all.
All in all this tool is perfect for someone who distresses every LO you really will save time and save yourself from paper cuts.
Just be sure you try a bunch of tricks and angles to get your paper distressed the way you want.
A Few things I learned:
- Thicker paper makes a louder sound
- It still makes a mess but the bottom compartment catches a lot of it.
- Short back and forth movements give a more distressed look
- Push down on the paper for a more distressed look
- Don't use this while your kids are sleep!
I hope this review has helped you there is a lot of generic "it's great" reviews but there are things you should know before you use it so you won't get that frustrated feeling I did the first time I used it. Only you can decide if it is worth the money, but I want to let you know how I came to love mines.
