Spring Mega Sale
Our Mega Sale is incredibly popular, this may cause the website to run a little slower than normal. Please be assured we are doing our best to keep it running smoothly. However items in your basket are not confirmed until you have processed payment details and confirmed your order. Please allow up to 15 days from when you place your order for it to be dispatched. Please note we are unable to combine or modify orders once they have been placed during the Mega Sale. Thank you.

New Quilting Page
We're not just papercrafters here at Sizzix, did you know we also have a collection of dies specifically designed for patchwork, quilting and appliqué! We've just given our quilting webpage a brand new look, which is full of all the information you need to get started plus plenty of inspirational ideas too! Whether it's a new craft you'd like to try, or if you're already a quilter but are looking for an easier and more accurate way to cut out your pieces, our collection of dies are perfect for the job! Click here to visit the quilting page today.

The Extended Multipurpose Platform is here!

The new extended multipurpose platform...the only platform you will ever need!
• You will be pleased to know it allows you to cut all Sizzix technologies so no other platform is needed.
• With a tab system and clear instructions on the platform it is extremely easy to use.
• You can even cut thicker card using wafer thin dies. Just add a paper or card shim onto the top of your platform to create a little extra pressure and voila!
• It allows you to use other wafer thin dies available in the market although you should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions before doing so....better to be safe than sorry!
• Investing in a pair of extended cutting pads means you can use extra-long border dies.
• These longer pads mean you can use more dies in a single pass than standard pads leaving you more time to make those extra projects you have been thinking about.
• Occasionally with detailed designs multiple passes through the machine may be necessary but well worth that little extra time to make your project just perfect.
