When I got this and I saw how cute it is I totally started cranking them out!! These lovebirds are my new favorite die and I can think of a lot of different things I Can make. I already used it to cut a vinyl sticker for my car window! Love it!!!
An extra set of cutting plates is essential when using Sizzix machines. Cutting plates are meant to be disposable. I've foud that by purchasing an extra set, I'm able to rotate out the battered and used thoroughly plates. With the original set, I use the same plate as a cutting surface. Once that one is done, I am able to swap out the used plate for a brand new plate, therefore keeping my diecutting uninterrupted. As I only use one plate for cutting, the extra pair of plates, extends my time tremendously.
When using bigz dies will cut through almost anything. Very powerful motor. Has been a workhorse for 1.5 years and still going strong. Thought I had broken it several times by overloading it. But when die and tangles were backed out Vagabond 2 worked just as good as brand new! You just can’t hurt it! When doing lots of repetitive cuts it is much easier to press button and reverse and send die thru a second time for extremely thick materials rather than crank through then crank through again. I now also have big shot pro and love that as well. Both have different things they excell at so will enjoy using them both.
