Hello everyone! Today I have a very quick introduction to Sizzix Sidekick Machine / Starter Kit. This machine is portable and affordable designed for wafer thin dies, mini embossing folders and Sizzix 12" decorative strip dies. It weighs two pounds and 4 3/4" tall. It has a special vacuum seal that holds it securely into place onto any smooth work surface. The vacuum can be sealed with the help of the lever. Always remember to use thin card stock because using a heavy weight card stock may ruin your machine. Watch the video to learn more about Sizzix Sidekick Machine. :)
Sizzix Sidekick Starter Kit
I received Sizzix Starter Kit in my DT kit. This includes
- Framelit Dies
- Small Embossing Folders
- A stamp set
- A pair of aqua cutting pads
- An embossing pad
NOTE : Please note that small and medium Sizzlits as well as Sizzlits Decorative Strips can also be used with the Sidekick. The compatible clear cutting pads are sold separately. And you have to spin the handle in anti clockwise direction for this machine.
