      Great for Travel and Small dies

      I had the original over 15 years ago and loved it! I gave it to my niece who is just getting into papercraft. So, when the new version came out, I had to have it! It works great for traveling to a friend's house or in your craft room when you're short on space.

    • A Little Workhorse

      I love the size of this workhorse. I keep it on my desk because I reach for it often to use with thin dies. It's small size makes it easy to keep it handy.

      Great little machine

      I love the ease of using this little critter as opposed to having to drag out my big Sizzix when I only need to cut a little item out. I recommend adding this little machine to your crafting room.

      Die cutter

      Little wobbly but great for smaller dies. Fits great on desk and can take it room to room without bother

      Sizzex side kick

      I am still learning things but so far I am very content with the product. As soon as I have the money available I will purchase the large size.

      Instant Love!

      How did I live without this? It is so small, lightweight, and handy to leave on my work table. I love it for cutting with small dies, especially sentiments. It only takes seconds. It will never replace my large die cutting machine which is needed for larger dies, but on the other hand, nothing will replace this either. I also like that it came in a package with accessories. Highly recommend. I also appreciate the prompt shipping from Scrapbook.com

      Perfect for Small Dies

      I love this little baby! I use many small dies for tags, journals and memory book pages. This saves wearing out my Big Shot, and is much faster. It works well for alphabet/ number dies, small tags,Tim Holtz thinlets small flower & leaf dies, planner dies, etc.
      If you are trying decide if you will use it, I suggest cutting a piece of paper that is 2 1/2” by 5” (the size of the cutting pads) then go through your die collection to see what fits. The dies & embossing folders that come with the set are really cute for labels & tags. I work on a glass mat, so the suction cup works perfectly. The unit itself is solid and well-constructed. For the type of papercrafting that I like, it was a great purchase.

      It's a workhorse!

      Even though I already own a Vagabond I ordered this Sidekick because I thought it was cute and it might come in handy. When it arrived and I unpacked it I thought it might be little more then a toy. Not so! This little thing is a workhorse! I've been using it to cut out all the little tiny pieces needed for the snow globe Christmas cards I'm making for my six grandkids. I've also used it to cut out many of my other small dies. This little thing cuts like a champ. I love it!!!!!

    • Love this Sidekick!

      I love this little machine! My papercrafting involves mostly cards, so a lot of my die cutting is small items. It is nice to have this little machine instead of hauling out one of my larger machines, when I am only cutting small things! I had the old red sidekick, but it didn’t cut the new style does, so when I saw this set, for such a reasonable price, I just had to get it! Not disappointed! Love it!

      Love, love, love!

      This is such a great companion to the bigger machines! It's lightweight, travels well to crops and arty gatherings and matches the bigshot, plus and emboss machines. I had the original way back in the day and was so excited to see the updated version and to be able to get the accessories again. Mine sits right on my worktable so I can grab it for a quick use.

    • LOVE my Tim Holtz Sidekick, but what I dont love is that 1 of my plates is already cracked. :(
      And good luck finding the correct color replacements!!!   By: madewithlovebynlo (06-Apr-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

      • I was thrilled when I receive my sidekick! However, after approximately 20 - 25 passes with various thinlets one of the plates is warped and even though the handle cranks nothing passes through the machine. It was wonderful while it lasted.

    • Is it just me but does the Sidekick NOT stay secured to the desk or table surface for very long? I've tried it on my wood desk and metal topped shelf and the suction releases after a few minutes - especially after I use it. Do I have a defective one? Thanks   By: SiderWhite (29-Dec-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

      • I recently watched an FB Live with Tim Holtz this week and he spoke about this issue. (Check out his FB page for Tim Holtz Addicts to find the video.) A tip he shared was to take one of cutting pads from the larger Sizzix or Vagabond die cutting machines and secure the sidekick to that. Then when cutting out the die you can press down on the cutting pad the sidekick is secured to while turning the sidekick handle to cut the die. Hope this helps!
        Of course if you don't own a larger cutting pad you'd have to find a different solution. Perhaps a large 12x12 smooth tile? Sometimes one might have something like that laying around. (I've done a lot of different crafting so I have lots of odds and ends. Most crafters, er hoarders, do. LOL) By: gharlow_38 (16-Jan-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!
