How to use your Vagabond 2 machine:

A simple flick of the latch at the top of your Vagabond 2 machine will release both doors. 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 with the machine before encountering the rollers. Once the sandwich is aligned, you can gently slide it into the roller opening and press the power button. You will have to hold down the power button to ensure continued movement of your sandwich through the machine.

Are you working with an especially intricate die or a couple layers of material?  Use the directional options at the top of the Vagabond 2 to run your sandwich through two or three times for a cleaner cut.

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.

Here are just a few reviews of the products included in this designer bundle from our Scrapbook.com customers: 

"I am absolutely overjoyed with this product. Not only does it do an amazing job, but also the platform is larger than other machines, which allows for the cutting of many thinlit dies at one time. This is a huge time saver. I have also noticed that the end result is cleaner; I do not have to pick out so many leftover bits. I cannot say enough about this product and the service. Kudos to Scrapbook.com, Sizzix and Tim Holtz." - Pinner

"This machine is a lifesaver. I got it due to repetitive hand issues but after receiving it.....I would recommend this product to everyone on my list. I bought it with hesitation due to the fact that I own a big shot but this machine is a must for any crafters." - Irene123

"I love these Mixed Media 2 dies. They are so versatile and so lovely. One of my best purchases. You can use the cut-out bits on cards, or use the negative space on a journal page, or cut the design out of two different colours (or more) and fill in the cut-out bits with different colours....just so many ideas and so little time. Beautiful set." - justrobin

"I am having fun with my roses folder using patterned paper, handmade water color designs, and using different colors of embossing powder." - weilercarol1

"I thought I could do without the die pick, but nope! It helps release those teeny tiny die cut pieces that are impossible to get out of the die otherwise." - dvcote

Safety Reminders:

  • Always remember to read the instructions for use before operating your Vagabond 2 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
  • Use your machine on a clean, flat surface for proper operation
  • Avoid placing your fingers near the rollers so you don't get pinched!
  • Do not overload the machine.  If the machine is improperly loaded, the automatic shut-off function will kick in.
  • To ensure compatibility with materials, always check machine and accessory requirements.  Machine accessories may be sold separately.

TIP: The plastic cutting pads often make loud creaking, cracking, and snapping noises while going through the machine.  This is no cause for alarm! This is a normal part of machine operation and the cutting pads and machine are designed to withstand the pressures of cutting.  The pads may even show outlines of your dies after use - do not panic! This is totally normal as well! To extend the life of your cutting pads, flip them over periodically.

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.

    Thrilled with this machine!

    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 diecutting again!

    And I'm glad I got it through Scrapbook.com. Their customer service is unparalleled. 5 stars also!

    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.

    Yipeeee

    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.

    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!

    Love this machine

    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.

    Vagabond Die Cutting Machine

    Love it! Cuts most dies very cleanly. Since it is electric, no need to use a crank which is good for my arthritic hands. The ability to cut from either side and to just touch a button to reverse the cut is a real plus.

    Tim Holtz - Vagabond 2

    I have to say this is the first time I have ever owned a die cutting/embossing machine. Though I have researched them many times over the years I never found one that really jumped out at me until this one and I have to say I chose wisely. This machine is absolutely brilliant. It's strong, easy to use and cuts through many different thicknesses of paper, felt and even cardboard. I am able to emboss or cut through many different textures with ease. I am truly thrilled with this machine it is incredible.

    Vagabond2

    This is my first experience in using the Vagabond. Friend shared how the Vagagabond 1 would freeze but Vagabond 2 doesn't because of improvements. I used it within 5 minutes of opening the box. Easy to figure out. I had the impression by the videos and the look that it was portable meaning battering operated. I wasn't dissatisfied to learn it was not. I am pleased that everything that you need comes with it and that you don't have to buy the plates and platform. After over 50 uses, within the first month of purchases, my plates are beginning to warp or curve so appreciate advice on preventing this for owners of Vagabond 2s.

    Early Christmas

    Absolutely love using the Vagabond 2. Not noisy and can use sitting or standing. My husband suggested I get one and he is my hero...never realized how much easier it would make my crafting.

    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!
    • 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!!!
