Guess what arrived last night?

Here's a clue...




Okay, if you can't figure that out, here's the box it came in...




If you still don't know what this is, here's another look...


Although it looks like a tiny vintage suitcase (complete with vintage travel stickers), this is a die-cutting system like no other. It's the Tim Holtz Vagabond by Sizzix. You just slide the little lever on top and out pop the sides...



Plug it in, feed any die or texture plate through, and slide the go switch and it cuts like buttah. It's fantastic!


Can't wait to play with it. Just had to share my joy with you.

Leave a comment telling me what your favorite cutting system is and why and one lucky winner will receive a Close To My Heart stamp set!

Have a great day.

  5. Oh My Goodness!!! I am super excited to see you use it!! My favorite cutting system is my Big Shot. I am an old fashioned cranker...I am scared of the electric...I am sure that it will be fine once it goes in...but Ilike the control of the crank. LOL...That makes NO sense. =)

  9. Well, I am not jealous, I love my cuttlebug (andeven though my skin colour suddenly seems to match the green of the cuttlebug; it must just be the light!) Enjoy your gift and I hope it takes you on some fabulous and inspiring crafting travels.......

  10. My, my it is wonderful.....I have big shot express and a new cricut from Santa, but I really love my Wizard by spellbinders. Once I figure out how to use my Cricut better, it might just become my favorite. Enjoy your new gift.....Can't wait to see it.

  11. It looks wonderful. I love my cricut and Big shot, but I guess I really could not due without my really sharp scissors. So if I could only have one cutting item it would be my scissors. See Ya
