What happens when you mix some of Tim Holtz's genius with some Sizzix die cutting love? The most awesome motorized die cutting machine EVER! We are so stoked about Tim's new Vagabond 2 which is making it's grand debut at CHA 2016. Earlier this week Tim shared his Sizzix Sneak Peek which included this totally awesome powerhouse machine- and made us start counting the top 3 reasons we love the Vagabond 2.
- The Look: We are obsessed with how amazing this die cutting machine looks. With its vintage suitcase appearance, and the way that the machine opens up; we can't help but feel like rock stars when we pull out this machine to start crafting
- The Motor: finding out just how strong the original Vagabond was with its powerhouse motor caused quite a few crafting jams, both literally and figuratively. With the Vagabond 2, those jams have been smoothed out with a stopping mechanism for when there’s too much pressure in the machine- nothing like a motor make over to get our gears going in excitement!
- The Accessories: Included with the Vagabond 2 Machine is a pair of Standard Cutting Pads, as well as the Extended Platform, which makes all Sizzix components thinner than a Bigz Die compatible with the Vagabond 2 Machine. Add the Extended Wafer-Thin Die Adapter, and the Vagabond 2 Machine can even work with Framelits as well as other brands' dies and embossing tools! So much yes to this, we cannot even stand it!
We love Tim Holtz- from his awesome dies to this amazingly fantastical Vagabond 2, to his awesome classes and passion for crafting. (And his ability to make us laugh.) What is your favorite thing about Tim Holtz? What would you craft with his new Vagabond 2? (Stay tuned for more on Tim's new releases taking place at CHA!)
