New To This?
If you like the look of our projects, but you're not too sure what die-cutting is then you've come to the right place!
Here are answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.
What is die-cutting?
Die-cutting is a quick and easy way of cutting out a shape with a machine and a die, instead of cutting a shape by hand.
Think of it this way: you're making biscuits and you want them to be heart shaped. Instead of shaping them by hand, you'd go out and buy a heart shaped biscuit cutter.
Well, that's what dies do!
Why would I use die-cutting?
If you like crafting, die-cutting can save lots of time. Instead of using scissors to cut out your shapes one at a time, a die-cutting machine will allow you to cut out the shape you want multiple times in a matter of seconds.
What shapes can I cut?
We have hundreds of designs for you to choose from. We offer basic shapes such as circles and hearts to alphabets, animals, intricate shapes and more!
What can die-cutting help me make?
Using our versatile dies you could create anything from cards, scrapbooks and gift wrap to quilts, embellishments for clothes and accessories and even home décor!
