vagabond die cutting machine by Sizzix Vagabond Die Cutting Machine from Sissix

This vintage looking carrying case holds another of the fantastic die-cutting machines produced by Sixxix® inspired by Tim Holtz.

Tim Holtz is the Creative Director for Ranger Industries, one of the leading manufacturers of innovative inks, paints, and embossing products. Tim plays an integral part in the development and design of cutting edge paper crafting products.


One thing scrapbook and paper crafting artists like are things that can be taken to other areas to be utilized–scrapbook parties, demonstrations, etc. The Vagabond certainly fits the bill. While the vintage looking suit-case is a nice decorative touch, the real beauty of this carrying case is what’s inside: a powerful machine that lets you create elegant die-cuts for your paper crafting activities.  Add the embossing feature to this tool, and any paper crafter or scrapbooker will not be short of being able to create fantastic pages. The versatility of this dynamic machine lets you work effortlessly with the smallest of dies to one up to 6″ wide on wide range of different materials in varying thicknesses. Grab some die-cut/embossing materials and take a fun journey with the powerful machine.

Here are some of the specifics and details on the Vagabond machine as shared by Sizzix®:
