Which Sizzix Machine Is Right for You
This video is about choosing the right Sizzix machine for you to do scrapbooking and cardmaking or even quilting. Each one is unique, but all do very similar things. Let me go through them with you. We have the texture boutique embossing machine, the sizzix big kick vintaj,the big shot PRO,the vagabond, the big shot, the eclips, and the big kick machine. Each machine is a bit different. All machines except the texture boutique will CUT materials.
A question that is often asked by many is “What is the favorite machine?” Stephanie explains that this is a very LOADED QUESTION! It really depends on what you are working on and trying to accomplish with your crafting needs. If you like to quilt or are in a school room setting and need to do big projects such as 12×12 or 12×24 inches then the Big Shot PRO would be exceptionally well and suit your needs. Or lets say you want to emboss a 12×12 sheet of paper and emboss the whole sheet, then the Sizzix Big Shot PRO would also be your best bet. But what if you are into cutting and embossing smaller items. One of the other machines like the Vagabond which is electronic push of a button die cutting machine or the big shot which is a turn of the handle or even the big kick. The Eclips is an electronic cutter with a remote that can do those as well. Getting back to the Vagabond, many like this machine because it will cut through very thick grungeboard and is an inspired design by Tim Holtz. The Big Shot will do the same with the grungeboardd, but you will have to hand crank it. So it is matter of preference between those two machines.
On to the Eclips electronic die cutting machine by Sizzix. It is perfect for one that wants to do their own designing. Or lets say you want to do a small one inch shape or all the way to a 12×24 inch shape. This is all completely doable with the Eclips ecal software and this machine along with their Eclips cartridges.
REALLY the choice is yours. Do you want to emboss? Do you want cut AND emboss? Do you want an electronic or a hand crank? Do you want to use software and do your own designing? I guess that depends on you!
