Default Another newbie

Hi! I'm new to the forum - not crafting. My name is Jo. I live in Indiana with my sister and 2 cats. [yes - I'm a crazy cat lady!] I love to make my own cards, but I've not been using many of the tools and cool stuff that is now available. I'm here to learn all I can and - hopefully - make some new friends.
I just bought an Ellison Tag A Long die machine on Ebay. I didn't realize how small it would be -- but that's okay with me. I don't think I'd want anything much bigger. I am wondering tho - what dies can I use with it? I bought a set of Sizzix Sizzlets - they made a crunchy sound as I pressed it thru. I was afraid they might be too big?
Any help is appreciated. And if there's a thread for this - please point me in that direction. I'm going right now to check out the rest of the forum.

Hi Jo & welcome to Splitcoast! Check out our tool & Product talk forum for help with your Ellison. I am not familiar with that machine, but some things do make crunchy sounds in the Big Shot and they are ok .

Please let me know if I can help you with anything on the site!
I'm Lydia.
