impressive listing.

Here is the link to the Whimsy Shapeology die section . My favorite one is the "vines" die, I use it all the time. They are not made by spellbinders, these are made in the US.

Great list!! Many of these company-exclusive dies are manufactured by Dies Direct, who have their own exclusive line of dies (Cheery Lynn Designs).

Alice in Md 02-05-2013 09:48 PM

At one time, some companies' dies did not have tiny holes we could poke with a stylus to coax a die-cut out of the die. I, for one, can't do without the holes, so I'm wondering which dies have them and which dies don't.

Crafter 4 Life 02-06-2013 06:37 AM

I think most dies with a solid back now come with holes to use to release the die cut. Many people have suggested using wax paper between the die that doesn't have 'release holes' and paper you are cutting to get the die cut out more easily.

Whimsy Stamps has them, also, their new dies from this year on, will be open like the spellbinders ones.

This co. has free shipping on dies, a huge selection, super-fast shipping & great customer service: Chic and Savvy Crafters Home Page
I also love some of the C. C. Cutters dies found here: C.C. Cutters : All That Scraps, Warm fuzzy place to indulge your passion for scrappin
There is a discussion here on SCS about the Spellbinders D-Lites---many of us have been frustrated with the quality of these dies. They do not cut completely and it is very difficult to remove the paper from the die. Many suggestions have been tried but they don’t seem to work. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...e-t571085.html

I am not sure where you got this information about Spellbinders making all these dies. I was given a tour of Dies Direct three months ago by the owner and the company that make Cheery Lynne Dies. In fact he said " If its a steel made die we make them for all american companies, unless they are made in Japan". As well we all saw the huge pile of orders with company names on them with orders to be filled and I can assure you that quite a number on your list were on this order list.
I wont go into the list one by one, but perhaps someone might want to contact Dies Direct in Phoenix, who are located on Cheery Lynne Drive and get the real scoop.

GypsyRoseStamper 05-16-2014 02:05 PM

I said "many" were made by Spellbinders, not all!
