Description & Information

Note: This Vagabond 2 Machine is only compatible with power requirements that are the same as those found in the United States and Canada. Consumers who purchase this machine and use a different power source in any other part of the world will void the manufacturer's warranty.

Contents:

  • One Vagabond 2 machine
  • Pair of Standard Cutting Pads
  • Extended Platform
  • Extended Thin Die Adapter
  • One power cord

Size:

12 1/2” x 4 5/8” x 9” (machine closed)

15 1/4” x 12 1/5” x 10 1/4” (handle up and doors open)

Let the Vagabond 2 take you on a creative journey! You won’t miss using a crank with this awesome machine that resembles a vintage suitcase that’s traveled the world. The Vagabond 2 operates just like its predecessor, the Vagabond, but now delivers solid steel gears and rollers, unibody cast roller housing, an ABS plastic exterior, a high torque motor and auto shut-off, giving you built-in overload protection.

If you’re doing a lot of die cutting, you’re going to love that this machine is electronic, as opposed to a handle (manual) crank. Simply push the button and you’re ready to go! You’ll love that it’s portable and is perfect for your on-the-go crafting.

The Vagabond 2 works with everything from Sizzix’s smallest dies up to the 6” wide plastic backed treasures and embossing tools. This machine is not compatible with Sizzix’s Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies. Use the Extended Wafer-thin Die Adapter to work with Framelits and other brand dies and embossing tools.

How to use:

Before sending your dies and material through the machine, ensure that the Platform, Cutting Pads and die (often known as the “sandwich”) is aligned properly. To align the “sandwich” press the Guide Flaps inward until they both make contact with the sandwich with enough force to move them into alignment before entering the rollers. Once the sandwich is aligned, you may proceed to slide it into the roller opening and depress the motor on/off button.

The Platform is designed to be used when you are cutting or embossing thin materials such as a sheet of paper or cardstock. The Thin Die Adapter allows you to use your Framelits, Thinlits, Triplits and other brands of thin dies in your machine.

Warranty:

One year limited warranty. The Vagabond 2 machine is only compatible with power requirements that are the same as those found in the United States and Canada. Consumers who purchase this machine and use a different power source in any other part of the world will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Why we love the Vagabond 2:

  • Perfect for small spaces
  • Machine will shut-off if overloaded
  • Portable
  • Durable for big projects
  • Helpful for users with limited mobility
  • Fantastic for cardmaking, scrapbook layouts, home décor and DIY projects
  • Looks like an antique suitcase!

Tips:

  • Not compatible with Sizzix Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies
  • Run intricate dies through the machine two to three times for a cleaner cut
  • Do not use the Thin Die Adapter for embossing

What customers are saying about the Vagabond 2:

“I waited a long time, and did a lot of research. It paid off. I love the Vagabond 2. I had a few problem dies that I dreaded using, so they were the first dies I tried when I received my machine. They came out perfectly. The machine is much quieter than I thought it would be. I'm loving die cutting again! And I'm glad I got it through Scrapbook.com. Their customer service is unparalleled. 5 stars also!” - lwedwards

“I had shoulder joint replacement surgery and could no longer turn the handle of my Big Shot. This is fun and easy on my shoulder and fast! I used it yesterday to crank out about 100 die cuts to start my Christmas cards.” - joirv605

“Tim Holtz and Sizzix has really done it! They have created the best machine for die cutting and embossing. I highly recommend this machine. I am disabled so the crank machines are a problem. This one makes life very easy for me. And it's really not that much more expensive than the nicest crank machines - so get this one. It makes making multiple cards a breeze. The only drawback is that I have a few really large dies that won't fit through this die cutter. But for the majority of dies out there, this is die cutting heaven!” - SnowflakeWarrior

“I haven't had this long, but the few times I've used it, it works like dream! Relatively quiet, easy to use, cuts on the first run thru. I thought I wouldn't like that the button has to be held down, but after using it, it doesn't bother me. My BigKick magnetic platform works wonderfully with it. I've tried my thick Sizzix red steel dies and thin dies from other companies.” - stampkathy

    Loving My Vagabond

    I started out making cards by basic cutting out shapes with an exact-o knife. I then upgrades to a Sizzix BigKicks and now I have the Vagabond 2 and wish I had started out here. I love not having to crank the machine, the cuts come out nice and smooth. I can cut multiple pages at a time and the possibilities are endless. I love this machine and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great product/machine.

    Best die cutting machine

    Tim Holtz and Sizzix has really done it! They have created the best machine for die cutting and embossing. I highly recommend this machine. I am disabled so the crank machines are a problem. This one makes life very easy for me. And it's really not that much more expensive than the nicest crank machines - so get this one. It makes making multiple cards a breeze. The only draw back is that I have a few really large die's that won't fit through this die cutter. But for the majority of dies out there, this is die cutting heaven!

    Are the original Vagabond and Vagabond II the same size?   By: User (05-May-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    This question is about a related product.
    • According to Tim Holtz, the Vagabond II is more quiet and less likely to jam or bread because it has all metal gears as opposed to the Vagabond I which I guess has some plastic parts which makes it work. It is impossible to cause jams because the Vagabond II will stop before anything jams and this prevents the machine from overheating and breaking. Also, the Vagabond II doesn't have the travel stickers all over it, which is no big deal because it still compacts into a cute suitcase when your not using it.

      On a personal note, I Love mine!!!! I wish I would've bought it much sooner than I did. No more struggling. If you have an health conditions that make using a manual die cutting machine than this is the machine for you!!!

      Oops, Just saw that you asked if it was the same size- not the same machine. sorry. By: Joni Seith (06-May-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • Can the Crafter's Companion 3D embossing folders be used in the Vagabond 2? I've tried but they don't seem to want to go through the machine and I immediately reverse it to not damage the machine.   By: dotty63 (02-Mar-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I am not familiar with this particular brand of embossing folders, however the Vagabond 2 is designed to prevent passage of materials that are too thick. I would guess that the price of the embossing folder is MUCH LESS than the price of the V2, so I would not try it. Better safe than sorry, as they say.

  • Need to switch to vagabond 2 because of health concerns. Can I use cuttlebug plates, folders and dies with vagabond 2 ?   By: djstew (16-Jun-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The Sizziz website states "always check accessory requirements. Machine accessories may be sold separately". But is also states "The Vagabond 2 works with our smallest dies to our big 6" wide plastic-backed treasures and embossing tools." So, I think that will work fine though you might need other accessories.

      You can download the instruction manual at http://www.sizzix.com/660855/sizzix-vagabond-2-machine-only-inspired-by-tim-holtz and see what that states as well.

      From practical experiences, the embossing folders from my embossing folders from the assorted companies all worked fine. By: Dragonhome (19-Jun-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
