How to use the Gemini Jr. by Crafter's Companion

Hi! I've been using the Gemini Jr. for a few months now and it's become my go-to tool for cardmaking and die cutting. I'm absolutely loving it and wanted to share a video on how use this amazing machine.

In the video I show how to use the machine and the different plate combinations for using with wafer thin dies, embossing folders and how to emboss using the embossing mat and dies.

  1. Thanks for sharing Christina, seems like a lot of steps just to die cut and I'm like you I think it's noisy.

  2. I've had my G Jr for a while and I think it's not working anymore because I'm not getting embossing or cutting even fooling around with adding plates, card stock, etc. I'm going to find out from HSN when actually I bought it. That being said, I have loved using it. I too use it the way you do, kind of upside down of their directions. What I have noticed is the warping of the clear plates is awful. I tried the clear plates from my Big Kick; they worked fine. So I ordered those from Amazon and now the actually seem to be too thin. I can't win, it seems. Just as an aside, I've had a Craftwell Ebosser for years - never had and still don't have a problem with it.
