I've just got a die cutting machine and I'm looking for the best place to buy the dies, I"ve bought a few from the range and from Hobbycraft but I was hoping that possibly someone here can point me in the direction of a good online store. I've bought the Xcut machine and I've been told that it can cut vinyl is this right or has someone told me a porky.
Thankss for any help you can give.

    You can get a good deals on dies from ebay. I've bought several from there, both new and used.

    I have a wee cuttlebug and a cut 'n'boss but I have never tried cutting vinyl, so not much help with that question.

    Thanks greentiger I'll have a look on eBay, I've just been to the range and bought a fairy die and a cut and emboss folder and sticky paper from a pound shop, it's quite addictive buying all these things I just need to try and make something now 😂

    Thanks cirat25, I'll have a look at them, I'm cutting out some of the shapes and I'm going to stick them around the window of the room my grandbrats use and I'm thinking of shoving them on some of the tiles in my kitchen which are bogging awful.

    If you have a What! store near you, then they have a range of Xcut dies which are considerably cheaper than online. Embossing folders too. and a LOT of very nice craft stuff.
    Otherwise look on amazon - I have found some good prices on there.
    https://www.CreateandCraft.tv have a half price event THIS WEEKEND and you can often get really good deals on there.
