    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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!!!!!

    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.

    Die cutter

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

    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

    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 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!

  • I just received my little Sidekick starter kit and it's so cute! I am new to die cutting and wondered whether it's normal to hear a cracking sound as you feed the plates and dies through the machine? It was startling the first time I used it. I also noticed that the bottom plate is marked with the shape of the die after feeding it through. I guess this is why replacement plates are available for purchase! Just hope it doesn't crack completely.   By: OntarioSue (19-Mar-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

    • Yes, the cracking sound and the marking of the plates are both completely normal. The plates are considered a "consumable" item and will need to be replaced eventually. Hope this helps!

    • In the Sidekick machine with the thin dies, you can cut a single sheet of cardstock, paper, metallic foil or vellum but felt will likely be too thick. By: Scrapbook.com (11-Feb-20) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • According to Sizzix's website, the Sizzlit-type dies will work, but require the purchase of a different, thinner set of cutting pads. By: aquabunny (14-Nov-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
