My daughter loves to scrapbook and I am thinking about buying her a Sizzix for Christmas. Thoughts? If so, what (other than the actual machine) would be the things needed to be purchased to make the machine most useful?

I have a big kick and i love it because it will take most sizzix dies. There is a Sizzix pro that will take 12z12 dies but that's a bit of money.x

How old is your dd?
What do you envision her doing?
If it's cutting shapes, you could get several dies. Another good thing to get would be some embossing folders or nestabilities.

If you get Nestabilities, which are a rather "in" thing right now, make sure to buy the adaptors to make them work in her machine.
You could also get her some good cardstock to use for cutting her shapes.
Embossing folders are definitely fun!
If she likes to make her own flowers, there's some great dies for doing that now, too.

Maybe one of the alphabet sets so she could cut out titles. Just make sure to get one where the letters aren't too skinny or they're hard to handle.
