What our customers are saying about the Tim Holtz Sidekick Starter Kit:
“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.” – Kcash2000
“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!!!!!” – NonnaEVG
“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.” – juliajae
“This product is the perfect addition to my die cutting supplies in my craft room! I love how portable it is and how easy it is to use. All of the extras that come with it are classic and will be used over and over again.” – Joanie R
“I'm in LOVE with this tiny powerhouse!! Its cut and performed exactly what and how they said it would. Absolutely love that it hardly takes any space on my desk and I don't have to use my big machines for small cuts. One of my BEST investments and I highly recommend it!” – lcusissy
“Tim Holtz products are always the top in quality and style. This beginning set has so many additional things to use with the mini die cutting machine, from the plates needed to make it all work to the embossing mat and then adding dies that all interact with the machine, the tag, the stamp and even an embossing folder. What a treat and having the numbers is really a high value.” – lhyden1

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.
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.
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.
