Just gathering opinions here........have neither one but would like to get one. Which one do you get the most use out of? What kinds of die cuts are you creating the most? (alpha or 'things') The Sizzlets dies look pretty small, so I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off with the original and getting the converter. I don't go to crops very often, so transporting is not a problem. I've heard people say that their Sidekick has broken more often than the original. We just had an AC Moore open up near us. They had Sizzix and Sidekick for 39. and were giving $10 to the first 500 customers--of course I never made it down there!! Guess I'll have to wait for another 50% off coupon.
