I am just getting back into scrapbooking. I see all of these cute dies. What is the best die cut machine to buy?
I still have my original sizzix!
Thanks!

You don't say how "old" your machine is. In the past 10 years not much has changed, as much as the mfgr's would like you to think. It would be great if you still have the old dies, which are not available anymore.
I think Sizzix is still one of the top machines today. I have a Vagabond (electric Sizzix) and a Cuttlebug. I don't think there is much difference among the brands, they all take the same dies.
Sizzix has gone wide now, so that's about the only change I've seen. I think others are waiting to see sales figures before making changes in their product lines.
Welcome back Marki.

My Sizzix is the old red one with the handle on top that you flip over and press. I do still have my dies!
I just don't think any of the thin dies I am seeing will work in mine.
