Have you tried Chic and Savvy Crafters ? She offers free shipping on all dies (no minimum purchase), so even if you can't get all the ones you want, you could order the ones she does have. Amber is also a really sweet lady too!!

Don't know where in Western Canada you are, but if you are close to Bellingham, WA, try Stampadoodle on Grant Street or Stampadoodle Art and Paper | Home

Thanks so much for starting this thread! I saw a card on SCS using the Memory Box flower box die and went on a search. Thanks for posting the website for FranticStamper. My order is placed.

Since this thread is about Memory Box dies, has anyone besides me had trouble getting the paper out of the cuts from intricate dies like Kaleidoscope Butterfly? I cut some out using both my cuttlebug and big shot with the foam mat. I also tried cs shims, but it still did not completely cut all the "little" places. I'd appreciate any suggestions!

Tried running it back and forward through the Cuttlebug several times? Those extra runs seem to help catch the resistant areas. Also, keep the die centered on the plates.

If you don't do this already, try putting the die cutting side up in your sandwich and switching the order of your plates so you're cutting into your B plate. I've noticed that as my machine has gotten older, this helps cut through the intricate dies much better.

Also....try leaving the die in the paper and rotate one quarter turn. Then roll through. This has worked well for me.

I found that using the metal plate cuts out the intricate dies. I try cutting the Memory Box dies first without the plate and most of them don't need it in my Big Kick but it they do, I put in the metal plate and cut and run it through twice and haven't had a problem with any of them.

Dotty, as a fellow Aussie I used Crop Stop!, Your one-stop cropping solution to get my memory box dies as well as other dies, stamps and other craft items. Haylie-Jo @ cropstop will order in the ones you want if she doesn't have them in stock. She will also ship any number of dies, stamps and embossing folders to Australia for a very cheap flat rate of US$7.50 which is a bargain for us with the high cost of international shipping. You can also use a coupon to get 10% off your order - sign up for the newsletter and you'll receive the coupon code each month. I've placed several orders with cropstop and can only highly recommend the service.

If you want a reasonably priced Australian supplier of Memory Box dies, I've also purchased from BizzyBecs Bizzy Becs Online Store. Bec also provides great service and will order in what you need and is one of the cheaper retailers in Australia for dies.

Like some of the other posters in this thread I have to rotate the memory box die to get a clean cut. I also bought the cuttlehug (metal shim) made by Cheery Lynn Designs which helps to get a clean cut with the intricate dies.

ScrappinGreatDeals in Ontario, Canada has them up but only on pre-order at the moment. When they come in, I'm going to get some and some other stuff. They are soooo purdy.

I also highly recommend chicandsavvycrafters.com for dies - Memory Box, Cheery Lynn, Marianne Designs, etc. Amber provides great service - dies ship for free, super fast shipping, often a freebie included. What a gal!

I am looking for the same thing. Just google "Memory Box window die cut". You probably want the SMALL one. 2.4 x 3.25. There is also a bigger one out there.

I live in "the Land of Lincoln" also. Could you tell me where in Springfield the Prairie Art Stamp Store is? I have never heard of it before! Thank you!

I wanted to chime in on this. Amber is absolutely the best! Extremely fast shipping, great communication on every order I have place with Amber. She is a jewel!

I believe when someone gives you good service you should acknowledge it with a thank you and a pat on the back. So once again I have to give Amber at Chick and Savvy Crafters a BIG pat. She had my order shipped within minutes of my placement. Best of all she dosen't charge shipping when you order dies from her. Thank you Amber. Here is the link to her site.
