Everybody needs a Sidekick! At only 2 pounds and 4 3/4″ tall, this marvelous mini die-cutting and embossing machine by Tim Holtz is the perfect solution for creativity on the go. The Sidekick Starter Kit is the perfect papercrafting system for die-cutting with Sizzix (and any other brand of) wafer-thin dies up to 2 1/2″ wide. When the included Sidekick Embossing Pad is used with one Sidekick Cutting Pad, you can emboss with embossing folders up to 2 1/2″ wide.
Along with a fun selection of starter dies, stamps, a coordinating embossing folder and an Embossing Pad, the Sidekick Starter Set includes specially colored Cutting Pads made exclusively for this machine. These Cutting Pads maintain the proper cutting pressure, while accommodating any wafer-thin die that fits the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ dimensions of the Cutting Pads.
For even more convenience, Tim’s Sidekick works with many of his previous Framelits and Thinlits releases.
Easy to use just about anywhere, the Sidekick features a special vacuum seal that holds it securely into place onto any smooth work surface. The included booklet provides an overview of the machine, plus tips and techniques to inspire your creativity.
The Sidekick can cut a variety of materials, including everything that a Thinlits die can cut, and is ideal for mixed media as well as scrapbooking, cardmaking, home décor and party/event planning. (To ensure compatibility, always check machine and accessory requirements. Machine accessories may be sold separately.)
The Sidekick Starter Kit includes 1 Framelits die, 11 Thinlits dies, 1 small Texture Fades Embossing Folder and 6 Stamps to get you started crafting right out of the box. With tag, numbers and tag accents, there are many projects to make with endless personalized possibilities.
