    I just ordered this – I love that there is a tiny die cutter for the smaller things, that I could in theory leave on my table. I also love your particular package – I love those number dies.

    Just got mine for Christmas, hubs won’t let me play early…so wrapped it will be…

    Next size little die cut machine should be for A 2 size cards. Just a little 4 1/2 opening, to 6 inches long. Yes, I do have the Vagabonf 2, but want ease and taking up less space and hauling it out. Keep the vision going

    OMG now I know what I want for Christmas! How soon is it available in the UK. Love the gift tags and the gift card idea. Need those mini dies too! A massive fan forever. Do you remember the Craft Fairy weekend in Oxford- many years ago. Great classes and I still have my technique tags!

    Thanks for the great introduction! I love this little fellow. He’ll be a great addition for when I’m doing small stuff so Mr Vagabond can have a rest.

    The Sidekick would make a great companion to my Vagabond and it’s cute to boot!

  15. When I first got my Big Shot years and years ago, I got rid of all my other machines. I’m glad you brought this little guy back and made it extra special with little embossing folders. Can’t wait to receive mine!

    Love how your tags are hung with hat pins … how creative is that !
