One reader will win the Hello Kitty Sizzix Sidekick Machine plus the 2 above Hello Kitty dies.

REVIEW

Sizzix gave away their fabulous Sidekick in our last craft giveaway, and I hope our last winner has been enjoying it as much as I have!

The Sidekick is a great die cutting machine – it’s small and doesn’t take up much room on your craft table, it’s pink (remember what I said about pink being pretty, and pretty being important???), it takes dies from all of the other Sizzix die cutting machines (and many other brands’ dies) , and there are tons and tons of adorable and versatile die cut shapes to choose from. Sizzix has also come out with embossing dies, my favorite! Now you can emboss and cut with the Sidekick.

This is a Hello Kitty Sidekick, so your daughters will love it too! This is a fun machine for crafters of all ages, and I think getting our kids involved with our scrapbooking is a great idea! You can keep your kids busy and involved  for hours helping you cut your embellishments with the Sizzix Sidekick. Because of the suction mechanism on the bottom of the machine, it stays put, making it even easier for your kids to operate.

I’ve tried many different die cutting machines, and I really do love the Sidekick because of it’s small size and great design. When I”m not using it, I can put it in a drawer, out of sight. It’s important to have tools that store easily when you’re finished, and the Sidekick is definitely that. Plus, they’re probably one of the most inexpensive die cutting machines out there, so you can get what you want for the lowest price.

I’ll be showing you more of what this machine can do later… Thanks, Sizzix!

You’ve gotta be kidding me! I *must* have this product. We’re gearing up for the Hello Kitty party for my daughter’s 4th birthday in April. Her older sister got the HK sewing machine for her 6th birthday, how cool would it be if I could give her this Sizzix Sidekick for her 4th?! Too great, thanks for introducing this to me.

I had no idea there were so many “Hello Kitty” Sizzix Sizzlits Dies now – Hello Kitty with Flower, Hello Kitty with Balloons, Kitty with Purse, Kitty with Crown and the Decorative Strip Die – Flowers and Strawberries – I could have a blast with my granddaughters with all of the available Dies for the Sidekick – AND – finally, a die-cutter they can operate:) Love it!

Great site, BTW!
