    I'm a t!maholic

    My name is Virginia and I’m a t!maholic. I’m a t!m holtz groupie. I love all things t!m, Mario, Michelle, the whole gang. There, I admit it. That being said, I must confess I am predisposed to being a little biased about anything related to t!m or his products.

    Will you still trust me? I love t!m, but I also place great value in my limited resources and the value a product must bring to my scrapbooking and t!m addiction.

    When t!m first announced his Vagabond, I watched his blog for months and months trying to get the first news of its availability. Finally, I saw that the Vagabond would soon be shipping and I did a preorder of my self-purchased Christmas gift. When it finally arrived, I actually took a picture of the package sitting on my doorstep when it arrived. I photographed every moment of its great unveiling. I took pictures of the actual box, pictures of the stickers….everything! I posted its unveiling on my fb page. I mean, doesn’t everyone take it to that extreme? True T!M groupies would do that, I assure you.

    l love me some t!m but bottom line, I was anxious to know:
    • How well does it work?
    • Do I like working with it?
    • Will it work for my scrapbooking style and budget?

    ……and that my friends, is when the party began! I had ordered many of t!m’s dies for months in advance. They sat staring at me forlornly, unused for months waiting for its master (The Vagabond) to arrive. I also preordered a variety of materials that I’ve never used because he promised me it would cut cleanly and precisely. (He does talk to me directly in his videos, doesn’t he??) I was clearly ready to party like its 1999.

    I made sure to have an audience watch me unveil it. I oohed and awed over the stickers. Yes, I’m easily entertained. OK, I also admit I watched a variety of his videos, CHA demos, etc., to see if I could find the exact placement of where he put the stickers so that I could place mine as close to his as possible. (He’s probably seeking a restraining order as I type this.)

    Now, how well did it work? F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!! When he said it had a strong but quiet motor, he wasn’t playing. It cut through grunge board like a hot knife through butter. It cut multiple layers of fabric. It cut cork. Whatever my poor little t!m groupie heart desires…..it cuts! Embossing, oh my gosh! Using his texture fades produced some of the deepest and most detailed embossing you could imagine! Ok, you get it. I give it an A++ for how well it works.

    Do I like working with it? A resounding, heck yeah I do. I do love the simplicity of it. If you understand the concept of making a sandwich to eat, then you already are a pro with a Vagabond. One other thing I really love is the versatility of being able to change the direction of the motor. Simplicity is important to me. I have another infamous electric cutting tool but it sits sadly in another room unused. For me, that product isn't a fit for me; perhaps, because I also can’t work my DVD player or sound system. (Too complicated for this menopausal woman.)

    Will the Vagabond work for my scrapbooking style and budget? It definitely fits my style. While many other dies other than t!m’s will work with the Vagabond, his accompanying vintage inspired dies are my very, very favorite thing. It definitely fits my style. Budget? That’s relative. I spent a lot of money on the other product and its accompanying tools, only for it to sit lonely and unplugged in another room. It’s not that that the other product doesn’t work wonderfully, it’s that it doesn’t work with my style. I never knew that was something I needed to think through! For me, the Vagabond has good value because I use it.

    Do I dare say the one itty, bitty, thing I have noted? My adorable little stickers don’t seem to want to adhere to the textured case. I’ll let my additional adhesives deal with that. Oh, and it appears that t!m has more than one Vagabond (duh!) as I have seen a slight difference in different videos and some were obviously prototypes. Oh well, maybe that will help t!m feel a little safer from me.

    One final note, “t!m, IF YOU’RE READING THIS AND NEED A NEW STAFF PERSON, CALL ME!! I LOVE ARIZONA!!! …and I have this adorable little suitcase that will travel with me!” (wink, wink)

    Worth every penny.

    I just received my Vagabond with my Scrap and craft supplies yesterday, fast delivery tru USPS international.Since I live in Asia I need a AC adaptor to operate it.
    Can't wait to use it!!!

    When I open the box, I am so happy!It's more beautiful in person.
    This Machine is absolutely beautiful and high end looking. The details, the metal parts and the design are very impressive.
    It's smaller then I expected and very heavy.
    Some might say this thing is too expensive, but in my view, it's the best die cut machine I have ever seen! <3 it.
    (Sorry for my english =/)

    My Vagabond

    I recently attended a 4 day scrappiest and notched this machine on one ofnthe tables. I stopped and and asked her about the machine and she demonstrated what it does. As soon as I got home I went to my favorite scrapbook store and order one. I absolutely love it. Now I will start building my collection of dies and I can't wait to learn everything there is to this machine. Next year at scrappiest maybe someone will stop and ask me what is that thing, and I will be able to show them what it does and pass the enthusiasm on.

    A great value

    I was really excited and a little apprehensive when I received the machine.
    I have used only the fat Tim Holtz dies on the machine. I am loving it. I had to cut over 200 hundred oak leaves within a week's time and this machine made it so quick and easy to do. I have arthritis in my hands and griping the handle to crank the die cuts through the manual machine was getting rather difficult. Now all I have to do is push a button with my thumb.

Product Questions & Answers

  • Will this machine work with one's own designs from the computer? Is the software easy to use? I tried the Cricut Explore and the software was impossible.
