champs ...what will this not do that the sizzix will do?

champs Tue 31-May-05 17:46:15

yep but not as much. but some people were thinking of getting it. no good if you alreaddy have a sizzix.

champs Tue 31-May-05 17:47:18

i mean cant do as much stuff cos it cant cut the original dies

While your on line so to but in does anyone know where I can get accucuts die cuts from? I believe you can use them in the sizzix

AuntyQuated Tue 31-May-05 17:57:38

sorry to be thick can it only cut sidekick dies but not sizzix dies??

champs Tue 31-May-05 18:02:45

hiya!! how are you? cheap dies

AuntyQuated Tue 31-May-05 18:05:25

hello champs----did you see my other msg for you? your B&P went in the post about an hour ago, late i know, but only just.

champs Tue 31-May-05 18:06:24

hi aq!! you can cut sizzlets dies and use the embossing folders. but not the sizzix dies as they are too thick. but if you have a siizix you can get a convertor to use the sizzlets dies and embosssing folders in it. thats why i went for the sizzix in the end.

champs Tue 31-May-05 18:08:34

no, didn't see it... thanks!!

AuntyQuated Tue 31-May-05 18:09:05

it's a complicated business, isn't it?
when you look at dies online...what colour are the sizzlits ones? aren't they all colour coded?

i keep thinking about buying one; then change my mind and buy ready cut ones from ebay!!

champs Tue 31-May-05 18:09:55

heee crossed posts aplenty!! cheap dies link for you carolinett

champs Tue 31-May-05 18:15:36

aq -- the sixix ones are green for small, yellow for medium, red for large.
sizzlets are mostly red but the alphabets come in different colours

Carolinett Tue 31-May-05 18:54:45

Hi Champ
Thanks I've had a look
I don't think I'll bother the dies cuts are really expensive.

Carolinett Tue 31-May-05 18:57:20

I'm fine Champs how are you?

champs Tue 31-May-05 19:24:49

i'm fine thanks they are a bit pricey aren't they? I dont really like the style either. I do like the look of quickcutz tho.

Carolinett Tue 31-May-05 20:04:42

Someone was selling a accucuts bag & shoe die cut on ebay last night it went for about £18.00 or more I thought that was dear.
I've got a quickcuts die cut hat it's the only one I've got I've used it loads of times they are priced similar to sizzix dies.

I've just posted a card in the new section with an outfit you could wear for Ascot, I wish

champs Tue 31-May-05 20:53:28

lol, very nice.

I quite fancy having a go at the little cut out bodies & outfits.
Went to a craft fair at the weekend - 4 stalls selling cards ! I studied them all making loads of mental notes !!

champs Wed 01-Jun-05 12:18:11

have you got a sizzix whizzz? I cant remember? if not, I have the body and girl and boy hair, and Jayzmummy has the bitty body, clothes and hair(in swap shop)

Whizzz Wed 01-Jun-05 19:36:50

No Champs - Alas I have no Sizzix

I have another idea to make little triangle shaped bodies & use string for legs with big shoes on the end & possibly wool hair.
Watch this space !

champs Wed 01-Jun-05 22:39:53

ooo sounds good!!

Have a look in the Panduro spring supplement book. Towards the back there is a design for stamps and something else (???) using little stick bodies. Very basic shapes, I thought about doing similar and using wire for limbs.

Thinking wool, one of my first Easter cards was a bright yellow foam chick, with string for legs, knotted at the "knees" with bright orange webbed feet!

Carolinett Thu 02-Jun-05 10:21:04

Nothing to do with sizzix but you use the foam just recieved this by email

Have a look at this
