Title: Cutting Dies
Post by: janine on February 02, 2018, 02:00:35 pm
Hi all just thought I'd mention that I went into The Works shop in York today and bought 2 lovely dies. One is a florish swirl with leaves and cost £3 and the other is 3 large butterflies and was £4. I've also ordered some dies from China on that famous auction site so eagerly await those. I retired (early) about 6 months ago and after 31 years in the same job it has taken some time to get use to! I've now got back into card making and cross stitching- plenty of time on my hands now! :)

Plenty of time? Not once you have restructured your schedule, long term aims and goals! Is that too much like work speak?  ;D Enjoy.

I'm with Brenda and Pam on this one, Janine - you will soon wonder how on earth you ever had time to go to work!   :)  Enjoy your retirement and the extra time for card making.

Myra, I have bought dies from the works before. I found them to be good value, and cut well. A few different designs, ranging in price from a couple of pounds up to about six pounds.

Many thanks for your replies ladies. Already realise how did I find time to work! Started doing book folding too. Made one for a wedding it was cut and fold in shape of an heart with the bride and groom inside. :)

Sorry can't take a photo as its already been given to the bride and groom. Book folding is something I've always wanted to try but didn't think I could do. Started with just a simple heart book fold, did a few more then progressed to cut and fold, which is fiddly but worth it when the pattern starts to emerge. :)Janine
