Today I went down to the studio to work on some new cards for Quietfire Designs, and when I went to use my Sizzix Tim Holtz Vagabond, it kicked the plates back on me and now the lower roller is groaning, rocking, grinding, and making all sorts of noise.

I used a sandwich that I’ve been using forever . . . Base plate, thin adapter plate, thin chipboard shim, Spellbinders embossing folder with cardstock, clear plate.  This sandwich has never failed me and if I remove the thin adapter plate and shim, add in the extra clear plate that Sizzix recommends, it doesn’t go through and jams up.  I know . . . I tried it, and I learned from it.

I called Sizzix and they informed me that since I did not use the recommended sandwich there was  nothing they could do.  I then wrote them via their contact page and told them the sandwich again, explained that it was thinner than theirs, and they again stated that it was not covered under any type of warranty because I did not “use” their “recommended sandwich” .  However they would offer to sell me a new Vagabond at the discounted price of $100.00.  Well let me tell you how excited I was with that one . . . NO THANK YOU!  I’ve already spent $300.00 for a machine that should last longer than 2 years . . . don’t ya think?

So in light of the current circumstances I’m selling all of my Tim Holtz Sizzix dies and embossing folders for $5.00 a die or $5.00 a set, plus shipping.  If you are interested in any of the following product, send me an email at [email protected] with your mailing address and information so I can send you an invoice through Paypal.
