This portable and versatile papercrafting crafting system inspired by Tim Holtz is designed for cutting with detailed (plastic backed or wafer-thin) dies, including Sizzix 12" Decorative Strip die and embossing with embossing folders (up to 2 1/2" wide).
The Sidekick will cut a single sheet of lightweight-to-cardstock paper, and is ideal for scrapbooking, cardmaking, home décor and party, event and wedding planning. (To ensure compatibility, always check machine and accessory requirements. Machine accessories may be sold separately.)
Included with the Sidekick are a pair of Smokey Gray Cutting Pads, which makes all Sizzix chemically etched wafer-thin dies up to 2 1/2" wide (Framelits, Thinlits and Triplits) compatible with the Sidekick and even works with other brands' dies! When the included Embossing Pad is used with one Smokey Gray Cutting Pad, the Sidekick can emboss with embossing folders (Textured Impressions and Texture Trades) up to 2 1/2" wide.
Please note: Small and Medium Sizzlits as well as Sizzlits Decorative Strips can also be used with the Sidekick when die-cutting (the compatible clear Cutting Pads are sold separately). Helpful for crafting on the go, the Sidekick has a special vacuum seal that holds it securely into place onto any smooth work surface. This small roller machine weighs 2 pounds and stands 4 3/4" tall.
This starter kit also includes 1 Framelits die, 11 Thinlits dies, 1 small Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and 6 Stamps to get you started crafting straight away. With tag, numbers and tag accents, you’ll be able to personalise your projects from the moment it arrives.
