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!
