Question WHAT IS A SIZZIX???

Is that something for embossing, My son wants to buy me something for my birthday, and I would like something that helps to emboss cardstock, with patterns, is this a machine or something, or what is something he could buy that isn't too expensive, What would you suggest for a gift, I have alot of stuff, but what are your favorite tools for stamping??

I would honestly got for a cuttlebug if you were looking at a sizzix... they are simialr but the cuttlebug takes less room and yes they both diecut and emboss. their parts are interchangable between the two.

Aimee is correct - but if you wanted specifically to look at Sizzix you can click to www.sizzix.com

The Sizzix is bigger and heavier than the others which is not idea for carrying around to crops. It does take up more space. But for me, it's just easier to use. You'll have to get the adapter to use the thin dies such as Sizzlits and the Cuttlebug dies.
