    • An excellent all-around die-cutting machine

      Works right out of the box. Cuts everything beautifully (use the sandwich formulas recommended for different die types). Watch the youtube videos to see and understand how the machine works. Compact, but powerful. Heavier than it looks. Only shortcoming--very short power cord.

    • touchy

      love this machine..but this is my second one. my first one broke...I had a millimeter (literally a paper thin) too much paper..was in a hurry and bam...broke. I loved it enough to buy another..but would not buy another if it happens again. The crank ones are more forgiving.

    • Love, Love, Love the Vagabond!

      I love, love, love the Vagabond by Tim Holtz! It stays on my counter top and I use it daily! No need to put it in the closet! It is basically an electric version of a Big Shot, Cuttlebug, etc. So easy to use and saves time. I bought it because I wanted to do some die cutting with fabrics and just was not pleased with the results I was getting from hand crank diecutting machines. Now with the Vagabond I get consistent results because a motor is pushing the sandwich through at an even pace rather than start, stop motions with hand cranking of my other die cutting machine. It is top quality construction all the way. No doubt it will last for years & years to come! And it's cute & compact too!

    • Best Birthday Girft Every!

      I recently started stamping and Tim Holtz products were the most readily available at my local craft stores. After using the products and doing some internet research I absolutely fell love with all things Tim Holtz! He is amazing! When I saw the Vagabond on the internet I was immediately intrigued and wanted to know more about it. I am all about online shopping and I do my research before I commit. I look at as many websites as possible and read all the reviews I can find. Overstock had the best deal available even before applying the coupon so I am very pleased with the deal I got! I've never used anything like the Vagabond before so I wasn't really sure how it worked but Tim Holtz has excellent videos on his site so that gave me a pretty good idea of how it worked. After waiting not so patiently through the Thanksgiving holiday to get the Vagabond I was ecstatic when it was delivered and started using it immediately. In anticipation of it arriving combined with some really good sales at *** I was prepared! I started cranking out rosettes with the Sizzlits Decoreative Strip Die. I love them! I am building my collection of dies and being as crafty as possible with Christmas decorations, cards, etc... This is the best birthday gift I have every gotten and if I didn't have a job I would be using it constantly! The only downside for me so far is the price of the dies. I shop at both *** and *** and there are ALWAYS coupons available for 40% to 50% off which has been extremely helpful. Unfortunately they don't have a gigantic selections of dies. Hobby Lobby is better than Michaels but I've had some problems finding what I want locally. *** has tons of dies so I've gotten a few there. Occassionally the sizzix online store has some fairly decent deals but what I love is that they have an outlet store with dies for as much as 80% off. I recently placed an order for $290.00 worth of merchandise and paid $105.00! I get really excited about saving money! All I can say is do your research before you buy and make sure it is what you want!

    • Die Cut Excellance

      Wonderful product. After using a manual die cut machine for about two years, this motorized version is a blessing. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys die cutting and especially those who have problems with arthritic hands or poor hand strength.

    • Overall great, but beware of warranty

      I love the Vagabond. If I didn't, I wouldn't be spending money on a second one after my first one broke. But when that first one broke, Sizzix made a real stink about not upholding their end of the deal on the warranty, so if this one breaks (and Sizzix balks at replacing it), I'll have to give up on the Vagabond for good. My experience with Overstock was perfect. My order came quickly and was exactly what I wanted--and $75 cheaper than the usual in-store price for this product.

    • Best Price

      Overstock offered the best price on this item after doing quite a bit of shopping around. It shipped fast and I was able to use it right away. I suppose I should have read the directions a bit more, though, as the first time I tried to use a Fiskars texture plate with it, it was too thick and the plate went shooting across the room--it was actually pretty scary and would have hurt if someone had been standing in the way! Lesson learned. I do a lot of card swaps and like to use textured backgrounds, so this was much faster than using my Cuttlebug multiple times. I haven't tried a wide variety of materials yet, but I'm sure it will be much easier than hand-cranking any other machine.

    • O My Vagabond!

      I love my Vagabond! First thing I did when I got it, was to use the awesome dies I had purchased to cut up the carton it came in - got all kinds of tags, flowers, etc to use in my crafting!!!! A fun way to recycle!!! I used to have a Sissix but it would not cut much more than cardstock - this will cut all kinds of materials - I haven't even begun to tap the surface when it comes to creativity with my Vagabond!!!!! Great price!! Thanks, O!!!!!!

    • Why did you choose this product?

      • For use in card making and scrapbooking


      • I have had 3 Sizzix machines (all the past and current models) over the years and loved them all, especially my Big Kick (which I use ALL THE TIME). But I'm starting to have some arthritis in hands/elbows and shoulders so was ready to take the dive into the Vagabond. In addition to that advantage, I think that it will be easier to cut chipboard and other items with the Vagabond. Looking forward to getting to know this new Sizzix machine.

      • I watched his videos and others and decided upon it because it just really looks great. I thought I wanted a Big Shot but have a shoulder problem and this is electric. I chose Overstock because of the savings. I am a big Amazon fan but you were less expensive. I hope your service is as good. Becky Wax

    • Can you use darcie and cuttlebug with this machine?

      • Thank you for contacting us tab4ever01. If you are referring to the embossing folders that each of them carry, then yes. You are able to use them with the same Sizzix sandwiching as you would with our Textured Impressions Folders. Although, anytime another company’s product is used in our machines we cannot guarantee the results. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

      • I use both of these brands without any hitch in my Vagabond along with many others. I love my Vagabond & be sure to get a magnetic plate if you cut a lot of wafer thin dies...greatest invention since sliced bread.

    • What is the largest size embossing folder you vcan use with this Vagabond? I have some new ones I just purchased that are 8 inches across. Will this machine work with those?

      • Not 8 inches. This machine will handle everything a Sizzix Big Shot does....6 inches wide max. If they are 6 inches on one side you could turn as the length won't matter. I have never seen 8 inch wide embossing folders....wondering what brand? The mfg could probably advise you on their use.

      • no the largest is 5x7 no more then 6" across. larger ones would have to use the spellbinders.
