Where in the World is your Vagabond?
After such a long post yesterday - I have a quick Saturday post for you today. Do you have a Vagabond? I got mine last Christmas. It is an awesome machine with so much power. At first I thought I didn't need an electric machine - I can turn a crank(!) - however, if you have a lot of things to cut out it is a huge help. The Vagabond can also cut and emboss thicker materials like grungeboard, chipboard, fabric and acrylic - easy peasy!
If you go to the Where in the World is your Vagabond? post on the Sizzix blog you will find a promotion for Vagabond owners to get a free additional sheet of vintage luggage stickers to decorate their machines and a set of gauge keys that will help you make sure that the sandwich you are using with various items (steel rule dies, embossing folders, sizzlits dies, etc.) is the correct thickness to go through the machine safely.
The promotion started over a month ago and I finally had a chance to have my photo taken on Patriot's Day. I decided to bring the machine to the site of the start of the American Revolution, the Old North Bridge in my hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, because it is a "Revolutionary" machine. The suitcase design is very innovative and the machine rolls the material through with a push of a button instead of many turns (or revolutions) of a handle.
I did get a few looks from the Park Rangers when I posed for my husband to take this photo but they were too polite to ask what I was doing with my tiny suitcase! You can just see a bit of the famous Minute Man statue on the right side of the photo.
I'll link up this post to the Where in the World is your Vagabond? post on the Sizzix blog and then in 4 - 6 weeks the stickers and keys should arrive in the mail. There are more details on the Sizzix blog and the offer is available to Vagabond owners worldwide.
We have lots of projects around the house planned for this weekend but I hope to get some crafty time too. Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post if you want a chance to receive one of the extra card kits from the class I taught this week.
Have a great weekend!
